Orly Jealous, Much?


Orly Jealous, Much? - 2 coats, but should have done 3. Sorry the lighting is off in this picture; some rogue sunlight made it through the blinds! I bought this because I thought it might be a dupe for American Apparel Office (a polish I LOVE, but hate the brand), and KarenD posted a comparison a while ago. The formulas are pretty similar.


Comparison: Orly Jealous, Much? and American Apparel Office - 2 coats of each, should have done 3! I need to find this colour in a 2 coater!! Anyways, the Orly is a tiny but more opaque, but both will need 3 coats so that's kind of moot. The AA looks a tiny bit bluer to me. Unfortunately, I think I still prefer the slightly bluer base from the American Apparel :( On goes the search...

  5. Have you tried Sally Hansen Garter Toss? I have it on now and it looks similar.

  6. Have you considered just adding a little blue or aqua to Jealous Much?  The shades look so close that it seems like it would take very minimal tweaking to turn Jealous Much?  into Office.  I'd add a little of ChG of For Aufrey (or something similar)

  7. I thought about it a bit, but (I know it sounds silly) I'm slightly adverse to doing so because if I decide I want to purge the polish in the future, it will be more difficult to swap or sell because I have messed with it!

  8. Ohh interesting, I just looked up swatches. I'll try and find it at the drugstore and see if it looks close in person :D Thank you!

  10. Haha yep, company politics. But I also find the brush stem to be very annoying, since it's sooo long, polish tends to drip down even if I wipe it off on the neck of the polish bottle!

  12. Interesting ... my bottle of Office didn't look nearly so blue as yours here.  Might have to dig it out and re-swatch some day.
