Indigo Illusion vs. Gray's Anatomy

Hi everyone!! 

I recently shared Indigo Illusion with you all and prior to that, Gray's Anatomy.  When I swatched Indigo Illusion, for some reason I thought that Gray's Anatomy might have been a dupe for this polish, so I decided to do a comparison.

Here are the pics (all pictures are in artificial light):

Clearly, Gray's Anatomy is not a dupe. There are very few similarities, namely that both have green and purple tints to it at certain angles.  Otherwise, they are very different.  Indigo Illusion is a lot darker and required only 2 coats for opacity, while Gray's Anatomy requires at least 3.  Also, Gray's has more of a pinkish tint to it, where Indigo is more of a blue-green.

Here is a shot that shows the similarity in the two:

They look extremely similar here.  Can you tell which is Gray's and which is Indigo?

I think this is what I saw that made me think it could be a dupe :-/.  Anyhoo, it was fun to do the comparison.
I really like both of these polishes!!

Let me know your thoughts.

  1. Great comparison post! Somewhat similar, in different angles.

  2. Multichromes can be misleading. Love their "magic"! :)

  3. Love the post! I have Grays but haven't tried it yet. I still like the mani with both colors. I would still rock it!

  4. Great comparison! Two coat coverage sounds much better to me! :-)

  5. You really can't tell which is which! Great comparison!


I love hearing from you all. So feel free to leave a comment :0). I'll read each and every one! Comments with links will be deleted!
