Pretty Ugly Yellows

I'm slowly working my way through the Shrek minis; today I have Fiercely Fiona. (For Who the Shrek are You? comps, go here.) The only polish I could find in my stash that was remotely like it was Sally Hansen Salon Forsythia (oh, old square bottles, how I miss you), so this is a pretty simple comparison. And yes, Forsythia is a shimmer and Fiona is a creme, but it was this or no comp at all, so I opted for this.

OPI Fiercely Fiona (mini) and Sally Hansen Salon Forsythia.

I had a much easier time applying Forsythia than Fiona. Forsythia took three coats, and Fiona took four and gave me fits with streaking all along. It could be I got a bad bottle of Fiona; I might try adding some thinner because it did seem more gloppy than OPIs usually are.

With the shimmer vs. creme issue obviously these aren't dupes, but the colors don't quite match, either. Forsythia is darker and a touch more green; Fiona is brighter and more yellow. Both have that pretty ugly thing going on.
