Comparisons: Nars "Mash", Zoya "Irene", and China Glaze "Peace on Earth"

Or as I like to call this, "Battle of the Jabba the Haute Polishes"!

Left to Right: Nars "Mash", Zoya "Irene", China Glaze "Peace on Earth"

A little history... back when I spent a lot of time on the MUA boards I once tried creating a MAC Golden Olive polish by putting pigment into a clear polish. It didn't work out too well. But I called it "Jabba the Haute" because of the color resemblance to Jabba the Hutt. Thank goodness I'll never have to try mixing my polish again because as you can see, I have three "haute" contenders here.

Now none of these are dupes of each other, that is clear. But when I put on Nars Mash I instantly thought of Zoya Irene for some reason. Then when I received China Glaze Peace on Earth from PR, I thought of my Nars Mash purchase. So obviously, I had to swatch them side by side so I could see how different they really are. Nars Mash obviously has more brown to it. Zoya Irene is more of a true green, where as China Glaze Peace on Earth sits in the middle between the two.

I am somewhat curious to see how I might be able to combine these three Jabba polishes into an army green mani. That's assuming I ever have the desire to try.
