Gelish Get Color-Fall Color Comparisons
Let’s start with Berry Buttoned Up… an absolutely gorgeous new shade of purple. I mentioned in my write-up that is is a little similar to some purples from other brands, so let’s see how they compare. From left to right, this photo shows Gelish Plum & Done, ibd Indian Sari, Gelish Berry Buttoned Up, CND Shellac Tango Passion, Gelaze Flying Dragon and Gelish Starburst. ibd Indian Sari and CND Tango Passion are the closest contenders, though they are both a little more reddish-purple and Berry Buttoned Up has a bit more of a frosty finish.
Whose Cider Are You On? is another favorite from this collection and I don’t think any other browns in my stash come close to it. Most of my dark browns are cream finishes except for Sweet Chocolate, and it’s just not as rich and lush as Cider. From left to right, the colors here are Gelish Sweet Chocolate, Whose Cider Are You On?, Strut Your Stuff, Double Shot Espresso (only available in mini size), Want to Cuddle? and Lust at First Sight. Whose Cider You On is a must have!
Are You Feeling Buff? is the new nude/tan polish. I actually put two swatch sticks with this color side by side so that you can see that it does fade a bit… it turns a little more yellow-tan. It has a nice subtle pearly finish, and is a few shades darker than Need a Tan. The colors seen here are Gelish Do I Look Buff (faded), Do I look Buff? (new), Need a Tan, Skinny Vanilla Latte (only available in mini size), ibd Dockside Diva, and Taupe Model. I want to point out that Skinny Vanilla Latte and Taupe Model also fade and these are likely the faded versions since I’ve had these swatch sticks prepared a while.
Hello, Merlot! is the new creamy red. This red looks a little more cranberry to me than the other shades that I have. Below are some of the darker red shades from my Gelish stash. Seen in the photo from left to right are Gelish Black Cherry Berry, Touch of Sass, Elegant Wish, Hellot Merlot, Lady In Red, and Backstage Beauty. This is probably one of my favorite reds.
Clean Slate is an opaque, medium blue-grey. I previously posted that this one was sheer, but I found out that my bottle had the wrong formula… so scratch that! The colors seen here are Gelish Cashmere Kind of Gal, Let’s Hit the Bunny Slopes, Clean Slate, Midnight Caller and Fashion Week Chic.
And finally, let’s compare Rake in the Green, a dark grey/green cream. I put this next to a couple of dark blues and some of the darker greens from my stash. It falls somewhere in the middle… it’s not a pure green, but it’s not blue either. It’s very close to No Stranger to Love, but is just slightly lighter and more grey. The colors from left to right are Gelish I Heart My Instructor, Is It An Illusion?, Rake in the Green, No Stranger to Love, The Dark Side and Race You to the Bottom.
