China Glaze Kiwi Cool-Ada vs In The Lime Light

I'm always worried that I'm buying duplicates of each other when I get or buy nail polish, so I have another comparison post for you.  This one is China Glaze Kiwi Cool-Ada from the Poolside collection versus In The Lime Light from the INK collection.


You can already see in the bottle picture that even the shades are a bit different.  Kiwi Cool-Ada is a bit more yellow-green and In The Lime Light is more blue-green.  The major difference is in the finish.  Kiwi Cool-Ada is a true neon (matte and all) where In The Lime Light is actually a neon shimmer (with blue shimmer).


For this swatch, I used a base coat of Seche Natural, 1 coat of China Glaze Snow, 3 coats of color and 1 coat of Seche Vite.


Quite oddly, on the nail, it's Kiwi Cool-Ada that comes out darker.  I know that most of that is because of the shimmer but it's definitely a different look and you can tell these two are cousins, but not dupes.

  1. Thanks for the comparison. This may be nail blogger blasphemy, but I really only need ONE of each color/type. If I have a neon green, I don't need another, but if there's one I like better, then it replaces the one I already have and I the old one away.
