I bought Blair for my mum but neither of us have DL bisques Brew. I can't find any direct comparisons either, but I tried to find a blogger who has compared both because I figured their lighting might be similar in both swatches. Scrangie swatched Blair here and bisques Brew here. She also did a comparison of bisques Brew and 4 other polishes here. I think they look v.similar, although Blair is a littler lighter/brighter and has a more foily/metallic look and BB looks a touch more brown than burgundy.

ETA: Just found another blog that features both the DL shade and CG Short and Sassy which is a dupe/close match to Zoya Blair.

Also, I forgot to say that I can't wait for you to swatch your DL mermaid polish :)

thanks Kitteh, great idea trying to find swatches by the same blogger! i'd seen the comparisons between zoya blair and CG short & sassy, and the comparisons between bisques brew and chanel malice, so that mega-comparison-post is a good one to try to piece things together too. :)

i have zoya blair, and back in the day (like, i don't know, 5 years ago or more) i used to get bisques brew at this nail salon that doesn't exist anymore, and i've been trying to figure out if they're close enough that they're dupes, or if i need bisques brew in my life again. i'm not really a reds person at all, but i always loved that color for some reason!

i'll swatch the new DL mermaid polish as soon as i can! i also decided to order a england sleeping palace today (couldn't resist anymore), so i'll have that to swatch soon enough...

I love that teal!

Teacup, I've been eyeing Macbeth. I love a good coral.

It's called Seafoam! I love the color but hate the polish. I'm considering getting a similar color from China Glaze.

i did a full mani/pedi in zoya blair for this week. i always feel a little self-conscious when i wear red because it's way outside of my usual color palette, but i like this color. i figure i can combine it with a navy manicure next week and be all patriotic and crepe.

I was in the CVS by Bay Medical Center tonight, and they have the Orly polishes. And they're still 50% off! It's basically pinks and neutrals, but I did find a pretty coral that I don't think I have. They had maybe 12 or 15 different colors.

Yeah, I got kind of a darkened lavender there but that was really all I liked, i'm pretty set on classic reds between Zoya and Christmas polish clearances.

The only one I got was a red/coral called Terracotta, which is not terracotta at all. I wanted Snowcone and Gumdrop but the racks have been pretty thin at all of the stores near my house.

Terracotta is the one I got too. I was going to use it for the weekly challenge, but realized it's kinda pointless since I'm still painting rooms. So instead, it's sitting on the coffee table where I can look at it and pretend I'm wearing it. :)

Oh, thanks! I might stop in there and check tonight, since I'll be over that way.

I did just buy 3 Orly's at Ulta yesterday on their Buy 2 Get 1 free deal though...

My cuticles are a mess, but I liked how this turned out.

I'm officially in love with the new Dior gel top coat. It dries super fast and it's bulletproof. My nails still look perfect, even after wrangling a conure for nail trim! It's the best top coat I've tried. It's worth the money as long as I use it only when I'm going to keep polish on for a while. It's also the shiniest/glossiest top coat I've had.

I'm usually pretty cheap with base and top coats, but I think I'll be springing for this from now on as long as the bottle stays in good shape and doesn't go gooey on me (I've had it for ~2 months).

For just a second, I was like "Who is that new person posting about Dior?", then I realized it's just a new (and awesome!) avatar. I didn't realize how much I paid attention to those!

That's Bart. He loves me for my baked goods and he puts up with Molly's crepe. He was abused by awful people; we rescued him from a sad little cage in a pet shop about 15 years ago. Well, *I* rescued him, then he fell in love with my mom, so he is hers. Or she is his, to be more accurate.

I'm pretty sure Dior sells in China, i'm not sure if you knew that.

Matte top coat over any kind of glitter is my new jam.

Ugh. I thought they were still clear.

What's a good quick dry top coat that I can find in Wegmans or drugstore? Or, I guess doesn't need to be quick dry since I have Orly drops.

I like Orly Sec 'N Dry. Despite the stupid name.

I found the China Glaze glitz polishes for $2.69 at Sally! One of each color - I restrained myself and only got the glitz'n pieces. http://www.thepolishaholic.com/2013/01/ ... eview.html
