Battle of the Green Nail Polishes: OPI’s Who the Shrek Are You Versus Did It On Em

OPI recently came out with a fabulous new collection in collaboration with hip hop artist Nicki Minaj.  The January 2012 collection features bright cream colours in addition to some glittery ones and I absolutely love every shade.  They also came out with a new shatter, a purple with a hint of glitter, called Super Bass.

Anyways, there is one colour in the collection that looks a little familiar…

No my friends, those are not two of the same nail polishes.  The one on the left is the Did It On Em from the Nicki Minaj for OPI collection and the one on the right is Who The Shrek Are You from the Shrek Collection from early 2010.  Both colours are, to be frank, puke green, The Exorcism green.

At first glance the colours seem to be quite identical but when you actually put them on, Who The Shrek Are You is a bit darker in colour with more green undertones.  Did It On Em has more yellow in it than it’s predecessor.  I have read that Did It On Em is an in-between colour of Who The Shrek Are You and Fiercely Fiona (from the same Shrek collection), which is more of a yellow colour.

There is an obvious difference when you compare them side by side once applied.  Regardless, I do like both colours  but when it comes to applying them I may have a hard time choosing between the two.  I could always do an ombre effect on my nails to get good use out of both colours.

So if I had to choose, which one would I pick?  I would probably go with the Nicki Minaj one because it doesn’t look as puke green like the Shrek one.  When I first checked this colour out online on other blogs it did look more florescent green but it comes off a little more muted than I would like.

In honour of this blog post, Chase thought he would get in the green spirit as well…
