And now for the zillionth tiffany blue polish comparison currently on the internet!
Here we have the regulars: Nina Ultra Pro In A Tiff, China Glaze For Audrey, and Diamond Cosmetics Oh, Tiff!
For Audrey provided the best coverage, of course (China Glaze yay!), with Oh, Tiff! providing the worst.
In A Tiff – 3 coats, a hint of shimmer
For Audrey – 3 coats, could’ve easily stopped at 2, creme
Oh, Tiff! – 4 coats for complete opacity, creme
This is more color accurate than the picture above:

I would like to introduce you to Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow:
Looks like a pretty, shimmery green, no? Probably a bit sheer, but still an interesting color, and you know how I feel about the Xtreme Wear polishes from Sally Hansen! I’ve had Mellow Yellow for…years, I guess? I don’t remember buying it. And really I’m not sure why I ever bought it because I can tell just by looking at the bottle that it will be depressingly sheer.
…And it is, like so:
FIVE coats? That is just too many, especially for a polish that gives you this payout for all that work. I don’t like this at all, it looks dingy and dirty. The light green from the bottle becomes a yellowy color with a faint duochrome on the nail. Gross!
But wait! What’s this?
Well that’s a pretty yellow, what’s it call—
WAIT, HOW CAN THEY GIVE TWO DIFFERENT POLISHES FROM THE SAME LINE THE SAME NAME????
Mellow Yellow 27 is Mellow Yellow 39’s prettier, more modern, sloppier friend. This is much closer to the pale pastel yellow I’ve been searching for, but still not there yet. However, it doesn’t burn my eyes or make me think of school buses, so I like it. Streaky and hard to apply though, as is to be expected from a yellow.
The name thing really does bug me though, how unimaginative is that??? They could have called the green one…Honeydew! Or, heck…Sprite!
