Hi everyone! It's still challenging for me to post but I could manage to show you a quick comparison of some dark green polishes, including the newly released Nars "Zulu". I never bought dark green such as OPI "Here Today Aragon Tomorrow", Zoya "Envy" or Orly "Enchanted Forest", so please excuse my being unable to feature them on this post. NarsZulu, Nfu-Oh 569, Yves RocherVert Noir, LeChat Dare to Wear Enchanted Forest, Kinetics Velvet Green. Then, on every wheel: NarsZulu, Nfu-Oh 569, Yves RocherVert Noir, LeChat Dare to Wear Enchanted Forest, Kinetics Velvet Green. Zulu and 569 are told to be decent dupes. It's true. However they aren't exact twins: 569's base is more on the yellow/bright side (but it's nothing that is truly noticeable at 3 coats) and for the same number of coats, it also appears slightly lighter. In short, Zulu is darker and more profound. That being said, on nails 569 makes a beautiful alternative and I swear your neighbour who is not into nail polish at all wouldn't see any difference between the two.
If you already have the cult dark green Nars polish, I don't think you need 569 but if you already have Nfu-Oh's supposed dupe and are found of dark green, you might find it hard to resist to the Zulu call. Yves RocherVert Noir has the same darkness as Zulu except that the base is not forest but jewel/blue tone. It's as if Zulu had turned peacock toned. Vert Noir is an equally favorite of mine with Zulu. Absolute gorgeousness. Too bad it was LE and get only released on those ridiculously tiny bottles (same size as mini OPI) with that very hard to handle brush. LeChat Dare to Wear Enchanted Forest is the most yellow based of them all. The base is clearly brighter too and also lighter. The last, Kinetics Velvet Green is a very dark dusty green with a slight shimmer. It doesn't have the deep and intense quality of a jelly. Light doesn't pierce through it. Here is, hope this helped!
