Periwinkle Comparison

Here's a quick periwinkle/blue-ish lavender comparison for you. From left to right: Essence Forget Me Not from the Blossoms etc. trend edition, Essie Lapis of Luxury, China Glaze Secret Periwinkle and China Glaze Agent Lavender.

And here they are on my nails in reversed order (from left to right).

Essence, Forget Me Not - 2 coats. The best application of them all and the best formula - pure winner!

Essie, Lapis of Luxury - 3 coats. I wanted to love this one so much, but the formula is so watery. I applied 3 coats and it could use another one. Sorry, LoL, guess we weren't meant to be together.

China Glaze, Secret Periwinkle - 3 coats. Same story as with Lapis of Luxury: beautiful color, but watery formula. Still, this one is a bit better than Essie (quality and color wise).

China Glaze, Agent Lavender - 2 coats. Great formula, great color. It looks a lot like American Apparel's L'Esprit. Like it a lot!

Here's a tip for you: if you like periwinkle and want to get a nail polish in this color, then I strongly suggest this polish - Collection 2000, BMX Bandit. It will blow your mind. I promise.

What do you think about these colors?

Thanks for looking!


  1. I have none of these, but they all looks so pretty! Periwinkle is one of my favourite shades in nail polish, so I'm almost amazed myself that I don't have Agent Periwinke, at least. ;)

    My favourite periwinkle is Alessandro's On Tour. You can see a swatch here -- -- I haven't swatched it yet myself, so the link does not go to my blog, nor am I affiliated with it in any way. ;)


  2. Forget me not gefällt mir farblich am besten :)

  3. Take lušte si mi delala s forget-me-not in končno mi ga je uspelo najti v dm. :) So mi pa vsi lepi, še dobro da imam skoraj vse. :)

  4. Forget me not looks really pretty!

  5. I was in Germany last Saturday trying to find this Essence colour and had no luck :(

  6. Essence mi je najlepši, čeprav mi je tudi Agent Lavender lep.

  7. Periwinkle should be the new mint green! Plus, I've always loved the name of the color. The Essence one is by far the prettiest; I wish it was available here! We do get some of the LE collections so it may show up eventually about 2 seasons too late). Thanks for the comparison. :)

  8. Beautiful! Periwinkle is one of my favorite colors. :)

  9. Great comparison! And very useful. I've wanted to buy Periwinkle, but i think I'll pass and just buy Essence.

    Thanks for comparison, I wish you'd do more of them...

  10. Oh, and one more question, have you seen, or do you own new Essence twins polish in Periwinkle color, Chuck? How does it compare o Periwinkle?

  11. Forget Me Not is definitely my favorite out of these!

  12. @Ivana: Sem vesela, da ti ga je uspelo dobiti. Je res nekaj posebnega. =)

    @Jessi M: Periwinkle really should be the next mint green!

    @Stickers: I'll keep that in mind and hopefully, you'll see more comparisons in the future. =) And yes, I do have Chuch. Will do a comparison soon. Thanks for the suggestion!

  13. Čudovita primerjava! Nujno si morem dobiti CG Agent Lvender in Forget Me Not =).

  14. Forget me Not and Secret Periwinkle are the most lovely!

  15. I don't have Forget Me Not. The rest I do have. It's a beautiful shade.
