Color Club New Bohemian – comparisons and dupe search!

When I saw the press release for the Color Club Back to Boho collection, my eye was immediately drawn to the turquoise mint shade, New Bohemian.  It was gorgeous, but had we seen it before?  I pulled out every minty shade I have.  Surely there would be a match!  Some of these shades I knew would be too dark, but I thought they would give a great perspective.

  • The closest to New Bohemian was BYS Kung Fu Blue.
  • New York Summer Hot Baby Blue was just a tad bit lighter.
  • Essie Greenport, Misa Dirty Sexy Money, OPI Mermaid’s Tears, Catrice Sea I Told You were all darker and greener. 
  • Orly Gumdrop and China Glaze For Audrey were bluer.
  • Eyeko Vintage and Essie Turquoise and Caicos were greener.
  • Essence You Belong to Me and Illamasqua Nudge were brighter and bluer.

So the question is, do you NEED it, if you have any that are very similar?
The Answer is, YES, but only if you are a crazy, minty-blue obsessed crazy person like me.
