Good Evening Everyone!

I hope everyone had a great day! My head is pounding right now. So since my head is pounding, I will keep it short & sweet. Exactly a week from today is the move date. Yeah! I can't wait! Other than that - things are just plain ol' busy! Just a few days after the move my husband has to go away for two weeks! Go military! 


Oh it is going to be a fun night - pounding head, no ladies night out as a result and a daughter crying because she can't think of a good sentence for her vocabulary lesson. She's a straight A student and a bit of a perfectionist. I wonder where she gets that from? not me! ;) Can you tell my mind is all over the place tonight? Terrible!


Today I have another comparison for you. Since this move is taking up so much of my cash, I decided I needed some green somewhere. I love green polish. It is not a color I would have thought I would love on my nails, but I really do love the greens. Here are the greens I am comparing.


L to R: RBL Recycle, Illamasqua Rampage, Orly Enchanted Forest, RBL Orbis Non Sufficit


While I have them all pictured and swatched together, the reality is I was comparing RBL Recycle & Illamsqua Rampage against each other and Orly Enchanted Forest against RBL Orbis Non Sufficit (ONS). 


L to R:  RBL Orbis Non Sufficit, Orly Enchanted Forest, Illamsqua Rampage, RBL Recycle


The above picture was taken outside in direct sunlight. ONS is the lightest of the bunch, almost like a chalkboard kind of color. Rampage looks the darkest coming in a shade darker than Recycle - there really isn't much of a difference between the two. Enchanted Forest could be the love child of Rampage and ONS. It is like a grayed out dark green. I held off on getting this green for so long, then it sat in my untrieds just as long, but I really love this color! The colors here are pretty true to color for me. But sometimes when I am inside the artificial light makes them look a bit lighter.


So you could see the true differences, I took a picture inside with flash. See how Chalkboard green ONS is? I think Enchanted Forest carries that same effect just a bit more grayed out. Here it looks like rampage and Recycle have an opposite effect as they do outside. Here Recycle looks a shade darker. I think it definitely offers more coverage than Rampage, so this could be why.

  2. Oops, I know I'm mighty late with my comment here, but I hope your nasty headache's gone by now. Good luck with all the packing! :)

    Lovely greens! For some reason, I like Rampage best. :)

  3. Headache is gone. Taking a packing break now. Kids rooms are just about done, my closet is about 1/2 way done. Everything else is about 1/2 way. I have packing ADD moving from room to room. HA!

  4. Recycle is darker and more pigmented than Rampage because Rampage is a jelly, and Recycle is not. I find RBL darker blues, reds and greens to be highly pigmented to begin with.
