As I promised, here is the post dedicated to the comparison between China Glaze ahoy! and Strawberry Fields.
Here are the babies (oh, I love them both! :) ):
|Strawberry Fields (SF) on the Left and Ahoy! (A!) in the Right.|
The formula of these two are is very similar. The same consistency, but I found that for some unknwn reason, Ahoy! applied a tad bit better than ST.
As you can see already from the previous pictures, the fist big difference is that Ahoy! is a a little darker than Strawberry Fields... or, if you prefer.. a little more toward fuchsia than ST.
The second big difference is that ST has gold shimmer, while Ahoy! has fuchsia shimmer inside it.
I've applied 2 coats of each, and both are opaque with 2 coats, both very shiny and sparky.
Here L've applied ST on my index and ring, and Ahoy! on my middle and pinkie:
|In this picture you can also see (if enlarged) the gold shimmer for the ST(middle) and the fuchsia one for A!(ring).|
I conclusion, these beauties are certainly not dupes. But the resemblance is obvious. If you like more daring and stronger colours, I'd say, go for Ahoy!. If you you are inclined more towards light pinks, fruity colours, go for Strawberry Fields.
But me... I cannot pick a favourite, I love them both!!! :D What a polish junkie like me can do?? Well...get them both :D
See ya soon!!!
Big hugs!! :)
