Smackdown: Essie Pretty Edgy vs China Glaze Starboard

Pretty Edgy and Starboard are not dupes. Pretty Edgy is a vibrant spring green and Starboard is a darker green that is a smidge murky in tone. If you were wondering if they were alike - be at ease! You can now own both happily.

I realized I forgot to moisturize. Macro is so unforgiving.

I own both and its such a lovely green <3, I totally agree, starboard is a tad bit darker. Great post.

I already have pretty edgy...now I can't wait to get Starboard. Lovely swatches. Thanks for sharing :)

Thank you!

Thanks for this comparison. The main reason I didn't get Starboard was because I already had Pretty Edgy...now I must reconsider!

Thanks for this. If you have it, would you please compare Don't Mess With OPI with Starboard? They seem to be very similar.

I don't own that OPI so I can't compare. Sorry!

I have both, glad to see they aren't exact dupes as I haven't used either yet. I like Starboard a little more I think.

Thanks for the comparison! I think I'll cut Pretty Edgy, they're pretty close, but Starboard looks better IMO.

I'm not a fan of yellow leaning greens like Starboard. Pretty Edgy on the other hand is more blue leaning and gorgeous!!
