Comparison Post: NYX Girls 'Sea of Cortez' vs Orly's 'Halley's Comet' vs OPI 'Catch Me In Your Net'

Happy Monday! (let's try to make the best of it lol).

Sorry for the lack of post yesterday, I thought I had scheduled one and didn't realize until late yesterday afternoon I hadn't. Today I have a comparison post for you. When I was wearing NYX Girls 'Sea of Cortez' I thought it was another dupe. Guess what, it's NOT! Yay! It's similar but not a dupe.

NYX Girls 'Sea of Cortez' vs Orly's 'Halley's Comet' vs OPI 'Catch Me In Your Net'

Index: Sea of Cortez. Middle" CMIYN. Ring: Halley's Comet. Pinky: CMIYN

Sorry for the lack of clean up! Swatching without my contacts in isn't a good idea. Also, macro picks up things I don't see in real life.

If you enlarge the photos you can see that NYX Girls 'Sea of Cortez' has gold shimmer running through it, where the shimmer in OPI 'CMIYN' and Orly 'Halley's Comet' is teal. 'CMIYN' and 'HC' are definitely dupes though and I needed 3 coats of each of those, and only 2 coats of 'Sea of Cortez'.

Do I necessarily need all three? Absolutely not. Though I do feel better knowing that I only have 2 dupes, not 3.  :)


  1. wow, they are so close! and so pretty!
    CMIYN is one of my long time lemming! I have a Essence polish called Chose Me that is quite close, too!
    anyway...gorgeous mani!

  2. Thanks! I know the exact Essence polish you are talking about, I'm always tempted to buy it.
    I feel you can never have too many teal ;)

  3. Wow, these photos and your reviews made me really happy I just ordered Sea of Cortez!!!

  4. Yay! I hope you love it. Sea of Cortez is amazing!
