Orly Wandering Vine / Green Creme Comparisons

I figured I'd jump the gun on this one just because I know the minute I post swatches of Wandering Vine I'll get lots of questions about dupes... And no... it doesn't look like Zulu. Hahaha :)


The first picture is taken in very bright, warm sunlight, so it's a little washed out but it shows the base color of each polish well. Second is taken in shade indoors.

Index: Orly Wandering Vine
Middle: Rescue Beauty Lounge Recycle
Ring: BB Couture Poison Ivy
Pinkie: Nubar Forest

Can't say any of these are exact matches, unfortunately! Or is that fortunately?


Again, first is bright sunlight, second is indoor shade.

Index: Orly Wandering Vine
Middle: Orly Enchanted Forest
Ring: Illamasqua Rapmage (four coats for depth)
Pinkie: Hot Topic Green (Kelly Green?)

Again, no exact matches. Wandering Vine is a little bit grey compared to all the rest of the greens. It doesn't seem greyed on its own, but when it's next to all the other greens it doesn't seem as clear and vibrant.

So far, I really like Wandering Vine, but I haven't done a full swatch or a full mani with it yet, so there's still time for me to change my mind. XD

  1. *sniffle* I want Rampage. I was all set last night to buy it with my Sephora $20 VIB GC, but it was OOS. I got Muse instead.

  2. Yay a new green that I need! I kind of like the greyed greens they look better against my olive complection. :)

    P.S. Your word verification has a potty mouth. lol

  3. Thank you for the comparison swatches, those are GREAT!

    I have lots of great greens, but IMO, there's no such thing as 'too many' so I'm caving on this one.

  4. Hrm. The slight dustiness of Enchanted Forest helped me realize I am a pure/saturated-green kinda girl (Nubar Forest is a fave!), so hearing that Wandering Vine has a bit of grey in it kills my lemming. My aching wallet thanks you!

  5. Oh Nubar...How much I adore you... But Illamasqua...you are so charming...even if you need a bit more of coats...

    Like I said this makes me varnishgasm. lol

    Greens are so welcomed! Although I cannot get enough of sparkle or holographic goodness!

    /Schüss

  7. I like Rampage the best, but the Orly WV takes second place!

    Thanks, Scrangie!

  8. Thanks for that1 The cheapie in me wants to say The differences aren't enough to justify me owning it, but I'll probably get it anyway! LOL

  9. For a non-fanatic they would all look alike. Here's another gorgeous green I need. Your nails look so pretty. That green is amazing.

  10. Impossible to explain to my friends and family why Rampage is any different from Wandering Vine.

    I will end up getting both.

  12. Thanks for the comparison swatches! I'm getting RBL Recycle during the sale next Tuesday but I still think I need this new Orly green along with the cute pink they have in that collection.
