When the first pictures and swatches of a england Saint George from the The Legends collections were released and posted the question came up how close Saint George is to Glitter Gal Lizard Belly. Before I applied my full manicure of Saint George I swatched a comparison to take a look if Saint George is a dupe to Lizard Belly or Lizard Belly close enough to Saint George to skip one of them. Bad news for your wallets though. They are no dupes and if you love holographic/prismatic nail polishes you need both. 😀
Lizard Belly is no dupe for Saint George. Saint George is much lighter and its base is a saturated teal leaning on the emerald green side while the base color of Glitter Gal Lizard Belly is much darker and a very blackened teal. Also the holographic effect is different. a england Saint George is a much softer, delicate holo while Lizard Belly has a stronger, almost linear holo effect.
Bottom line: you do need both if you love teal, green and/or holos. 😀
The lighting in my comparison pictures is different to my new holo lighting setup from my Saint George swatches because I made the comparison right before I applied Saint George as a full manicure and changed the lighting again. While taking these pictures I had my arms wrapped around the fifth halogen lamp which I use for direct lighting. I must have looked very.. entertaining while taking the pictures. 😀
I am glad though that I now have a setup which doesn’t force me into making funny moves.
Thanks for looking and have a great week! ♥
