Comparable Colors: Guest Blogger

Courtne Smith, a.k.a Queen Shmink, is a world traveler with extraordinary fashion and beauty sense. The Toronto-based blogger is one of our favorite ladies to follow on the Interwebz because she makes her impeccable style (fancy fur is her specialty) feel so accessible and easy to recreate. Plus, she always has a killer manicure. This week, she teaches us her secrets that keep her perfectly primped when she’s both at home or on the road with her bff, Drake.

I would definitely call myself a nail fanatic — I own over 85 bottles of polish in my growing collection. From drugstore to department store, if it’s pretty, it’s mine. While I’m a sucker for Deborah Lippmann’s lacquers, you don’t necessarily have to spend $20 or more to get the “color of the moment.” Here are a few identical hues I’ve come across in my nail polish hunt:

1. Butter “Teddy Girl” vs. OPI “Mod About You”

2. MAC “Blueblood” vs. Essie “Sole Mate”

3. Nars “Zulu” vs. Zoya “Envy”

4. Chanel “Particuliere” vs. OPI “Over The Taupe”

5. Deborah Lippmann “Glamorous Life” vs. Essie “Buy Me a Cameo”

6. Butter “Bluey” vs. OPI “Yodel Me on My Cell”
