OPI Chartreuse Comparisons

This is a long overdue post! Chartreuse is not one of my favourite polish colours, or colours in general, so that's probably why it took me so long to post this comparison. When OPI's Nicki Minaj Collection was released, Did It On 'Em reminded me of Who The Shrek Are You? from the previous Shrek Forever After Collection. I know a lot of people love chartreuse, so as promised, here is my chartreuse comparison!



Who the Shrek Are You? is the greenest of the three shades, and Fiercely Fiona is the most yellow, with Did It On 'Em in the middle. I used three coats of Fiercely Fiona and Who the Shrek Are You?, and two coats of Did It On 'Em. The formulas of all three of these polishes are quite thin, and should be used over a ridge filler base coat. These three polishes are all quite different, so there is room for each polish in any collection.

Are you a fan of chartreuse? Do you own any of these polishes or any other chartreuse shades? Let me know in the comments! :)

Disclosure: Did It On 'Em was sent to me for my honest review. Fiercely Fiona and Who the Shrek Are You? were bought with my own money.

  1. I am definitely not a fan of this colour, it doesn't go well with my skin tone at all!

  2. Thanks for the comparisons. I always like to look at similar (and sometimes ends up not so similar) shades. Fiercely Fiona looks so streaky - glad I never feel for the hype on that collection. I bought into it really late and only got 1 the power blue (Cat something)...and it made my hands look soooo red, I gave it to someone else. And nope, don't own a chartreuse polish in all my stash. I bought all the other shades out of the KM collection but for Did It On 'Em. I did not think I could pull off that shade on my skin tone. Who the Shrek Are you? Looks great on your hands.

    1. Fiercely Fiona has a horrible formula, very streaky! I only bought Fiercely Fiona and Who the Shrek Are You since they were in the 50% discount bin, the sales always make me buy things I don't even want! Chartreuse is a difficult colour to pull off, seems like people either love it or hate it!

  3. I think my favourite of the three on you is Who the Shrek Are You?, but I don't know if this colour would look good on me at all...or maybe I've just been too scared to try!

    1. I think I like it the best out of the three since it's the most green! Thanks for the comment! :)

  4. I have the mini bottle of the Did It On Em and like it but think it might be fun to do an accent nail with or to wear on your toes. Hope you had a great weekend! Mentioning your blog in tomorrows post. :-)

    1. I love OPI's Ridge Filler, it really does work :) I used the ridge filler in this post for Did It On 'Em - http://addictedtoopi.blogspot.ca/2012/01/did-it-on-em.html
