Greens for March: Zingy Dupes

I found Revlon Bonsai at Dollar Tree, and kind of regret ignoring this brand in the past, because every single one of these "new to me" Color Stays and Brilliant Strength polishes have been a nice surprise.

Revlon Bonsai is a tangy acid green shot through with a strong yellow shimmer. No apologies, some people won't enjoy wearing this. I think, for me, it's more of a summer polish.

I believe I have (had, I'm purging these days) similar colors, but this one pops. It's more like sour apple married acidic green. I'm kind of a fan of these kinds of greens.

These are on eBay, some in lots, some on their own. These Revlons are like old Rock Stars: doing a great job, but not hot and current, which is a bummer because truth be told, the formula on these has completely turned my head.

I wanted to compare this to Zoya Midori, named like that similarly colored melon liqueur.

Can you tell them apart?

They are virtually identical.

Both had lovely formulae and I wore the mani for a time as the colors were just the same and found wear to be equal.

One can live without the other, unless, like me, both seem like they need a bit of airplay.

Thanks for reading my little nail polish journal!!

  1. Ooh, I think I have the Zoya version, which is great because this is the best green so far!
