"Oooh, I think that looks too much like the shade XXX, which I already have, so I think I'll pass."
And sometimes I'll think:
"Oh, that new shade looks nothing like the shade XXX, so I better buy it!"
And of course, I'll get the new shade home and find it's just the opposite of what my memory was telling me. So when I finally spotted the new-to-the-US shade Pistache at my local Rite Aid (part of the Buff To Bright display), I thought:
"Does this look like Exotic Green? Nawww, it's a lot lighter. But it does have a yellow undertone to it, and so does Exotic Green. I wonder how they compare?"
So on the off, off chance that you also asked yourself this question, here's a very quick comparison for you!
No top coat for either nail
Pistache: This is a lovely green that many of you said resembles the color of pistachio pudding (I agree!). It's practically a one-coater (I used two for the swatch above) and the formula was very, very nice and easy to work with. This is a straight-up creme.
Exotic Green: Love the color, hate the formula. This is such a sheer, streaky polish, and I rarely wear it because of that. I used three coats for the swatch above and if you look to the bottom of the "nail" you can see that it's still streaky after three coats. The finish of Exotic Green is a "crelly" (jelly-creme).
Of all the green polishes I own (which is a lot, I promise you), I couldn't find one that closely resembled Pistache. All of my other greens of this nature are more mint green, seafoam green or lime green. None are quite like this, so I'm SUPER happy I found it.
Do you own Sinful Colors Pistache? What do you think of it?
