China Glaze Avant Garden swatches & a dupe!!!

I apologize for not getting these up sooner.  I've not been focusing well lately and had something come up last night when I was trying to get these finished.  I'll stop rambling now and show you these amazing polishes that I'm absolutely LOVING right now.

I posted this picture to Instagram, my username is Trailerhoodchic, the other day before I did some swatching.  So check these out below.  I even found a dupe(maybe two)!!!

Dandy Lyin' Around - 3 coats with top coat.  A beautiful shimmery white.  I don't have piCture pOlish White Wedding to compare this to, but I imagine this is a very close dupe.  I love this one so much.  I actually wore it all last weekend and only needed 2 coats.  I had so many complements. 

Tart-y For The Party - 2 coats with top coat.  Lavender creme.  This easily could've been a 1 coater, but as usual I went with 2.  This is slightly darker and a little more purple than OPI Done Out In Deco.

Mimosa's Before Mani's - 2 coats with top coat.  Peachy coral shimmer.  This doesn't really remind me of mimosa's, but is beautiful anyway.  I didn't really think I'd like this, but I actually do.  It's SO PURDY! And yes, that's a word.  :D

Budding Romance - 3 coats with top coat.  Avocado green crelly(creme/jelly).  I'm still kinda on the fence about this one.  I normally love all greens but this, I think, has a tad too much yellow in it for my tastes.  Now I want some guacamole!!!

Passion For Petals - 2 coats with top coat.  Bright salmon pink creme.  This is another one that I could've used 1 coat for.  So, it would probably be a great stamping color.  I have a feeling that as soon as I take Escaping Reality(from the Cirque collection) off my toes, this will be my next pedi color.

Sunday Funday - 2 coats with top coat.  A beautiful bright beachy blue creme.  This has stuck the song Manic Monday in my head. 

While I was swatching Sunday Funday I thought it looked very close to Deborah Lippmann On The I compared them below. Can you guess which is which?

What did you guess?  Sunday Funday(2 coats) on the middle & pinky fingers.  On The Beach(3 coats) on the index and ring fingers.  OTB is slightly dusky-er than SF and is a thinner formula.  So, if you don't have OTB and want it, GO GET SUNDAY FUNDAY!!! 

I am loving all of these & I really need to get Fancy Pants and Keep Calm, Paint On.

Be sure to check back here tomorrow to see some nail art I did with these polishes!

~ Note: These polishes were sent to review for my 100% honest opinion.
