> I was actually going to do full manicure and a comparison post feauturing Essie Going Incognito, the new polish from their Winter Collection; but I got lazy and called it a day =) I first applied 4 similar medium-dark greens from my stash, and when I didn’t want to take it off, I just applied China Glaze Four Leaf Clover to my thumb. It has nothing to do with the rest of the nails, but I thought this as an ombre manicure, going not only from dark to light, but also from less saturated to more =)
Essie Going Incognito is a gorgeous polish. It has a very distinct blue tone to it, but it’s not teal. It’s a very beautiful, jewel toned green. It requires two coats to be opaque, and dries very glossy. I think Essie is lately doing their creme polishes more like jelly/creme. I think I would call this color Sacramento Green =)


As you can see, it’s not as close to OPI Jade is the New Black as everyone thought it would be. I actually like Essie Going Incognito more than JitNB. If you plan on skipping this color just because you own JitNB, don’t. It’s really worth owning both.
Orly Enchanted Forest and Avon Green With Envy are darker and much more yellow-toned. I don’t know if an exact dupe for Going Incognito exists, all I can say is I don’t have one in my stash.

Aslında Essie Going Incognito’yu tüm elime sürüp fotoğrafını çekecektim, aynı zamanda da bu karşılaştırma resmini yayınlayacaktım; ama tembellik beni esir aldı =) Önce 4 tane birbirine benzeyen orta-koyu yeşil oje sürdüm, sonra da silmek istemediğim için baş parmağıma China Glaze Four Leaf Clover sürdüm ve o şekilde bıraktım. Diğer dördüyle ilgisi olmasa da, ombre manikürü olarak düşünülürse, renkler koyudan açığa ve soluktan parlağa doğru gidiyor; bu yüzden tamamlayıcı oldu =)
Essie Going Incognito muhteşem bir oje. İçinde belirgin bir mavi tonu var, ama petrol mavisi gibi değil. Koyu bir renk olmasına rağmen çok canlı duruyor. İki katta opak oluyor ve kuruyunca ıslak görünümünü koruyor. Biliyorum öve öve bitiremedim ama kesinlikle almaya değer bir renk.
Çoğu kişi bu ojenin OPI Jade is the New Black ile çok yakın olduğunu düşünüyordu, ama bariz farklılar, hatta Going Incognito bence daha güzel. Eğer JitNB sizde var diye almamazlık ediyorsanız, ben alın derim, çünkü ikisi de çok güzel.
Orly Enchanted Forest ve Avon Green With Envy daha koyu ve daha sarı tonlu kalıyor. Going Incognito’nun eşi bir oje var mı bilmiyorum, benim ojelerim arasında yok en azından.

  8. >love them 😀 I got incognito from essie it's such a nice color but I thought it would be more teal like from the advertisement

  9. >@that BADass señorita I also thought it would be more blue, but I think it's perfect this way because we had and will have so many teals this year… 😉

  10. >looking at the swatches, i'm loving Four Leaf Clover so much more now..i wanted to buy but since i've already bought too many green colors,i decided to skip tht..but now i want them!!=)

  11. >love greens:D

  12. >My FAVORITE!Green is definitely the best color out there… at least for ME.I love all this different shades.:DxoxoBlancahttp://blanca1018.blogspot.com/

  13. >I love green nail polish, that Orly shade is just fantastic!

  14. >Tremendously great swatch on "Four Leaf Clover," I've seen it very teal on so many blogs and I know how much effort it must have taken to get that so accurate! I really want that Essie; I love jelly/creme formulas so much more than just straight up opaque cremes.

  15. >I love this mani! Green is my favorite color! 🙂 I own the China Glaze & OPI ones, but would love to get my hand on the Essie one. Will be on the lookout for that. Thanks! =)

  16. >I own the China Glaze and the Essie, but the rest look really pretty too. I think I want the Orly, both the colour and the name appeal to me. :DGorgeous nails as always!

  17. >great mani! I love the gradient effect ❤

  18. >thank you so much, guys =) I'm glad if this was any help =) @Asami, I remember your post about FLC, that's why I tried that one first when I first got my new camera. I was very pleased that it captured the Kelly green right away. In this one it even looks more blue than it would look when pictured alone. I'm glad this camera doesn't make green look teal, but it still fails to capture indigo =/

  19. >essie going incognito gerçekten çok güzel duruyo çok beğendim sana da çok yakışmış Deniz:)

  20. >Tesekkur ederim @Vildan =)))

  21. >harikaymis essie. ya ben orly enhanced forest'i bendeki avon'dan daha koyudur saniyordum =) avon daha guzelmis, orly'yi almaya luzum yok, ama essie'yi alicam =)

  22. >thanks for the comparison! I must say I want all of these polishes, exept the one from Avon. It just has something I don't like, it's so dark! Darks don't go really well with me, I'm already so pale, haha!

  23. >@Nemo Latte Essie gerçekten güzel, bir de daha alternatifini bulamadım ben. =)@Lois, Avon only looks green under certain lighting =) you might do better with a lighter, more obvious green! =)

  24. >Çok düşündüm dükkanda ama almadım Going Incognito'yu. Hala alasım var gibi ama o kadar da çok beğenmedim. Çok az swatchını gördüm, belki bi manikür yapsan karar vermek kolaylaşır 😛

  25. >Ben istanbulda adam gibi bi yesil oje bulamiyorum acikcasi. En son avondan 2 yesil aldim biri bu senin kullandigin biri de peppermint leaf. Ama hala istedigim rengi bulamadim. Essie guzel gorunuyo hedefimde simdi o var.

Simdiden tesekkurler.
