Orly Sweet Peacock vs. OPI Swimsuit...Nailed It!

Good Morning! Happy Friday!! Today I have a comparison for you! I'm loving that we've gotten a couple blue foil polishes this year. I used to really hate foil finishes but I'm really starting to love them!


Alright so when I originally saw Orly Sweet Peacock at Ulta I passed it up thinking it was a dupe of OPI Swimsuit...Nailed It! I only ended up getting it because the place I bought the Birds of a Feather collection at only had the 6 piece set. I was happy when I got it on an realize that it's not a dupe after all! Sweet Peacock and Swimsuit...Nailed It are very similar the OPI is a few shades darker. The difference is most noticeable in the shade or indoors but you can still tell a little bit out in the sun. Formula wise both are fantastic! I used 2 coats of each for the photos below. The first 2 photos are in the sun and the 3rd is in the shade

  1. I like the OPI Swimsuit one better. I think the darker blue keeps it from looking too foily. Im putting Swimsuit on my wish list! :-)

  3. Thanks for posting this comp! I was feeling like I needed to buy Sweet Peacock, too, but I think I prefer SNI. Fowl Play was the only one from the Orly collection I really needed, and I got a backup of that.

    lol that unfortunately will probably never happen. I don't like how my nails look naked so I don't think I'll be posting them any time soon. Sorry :(

  10. This is going to sound weird, but I like them in the shade when they aren't shiny. They would be awesome matte!

  12. They look a lot a like to me - but then I am not the best judge of blues. I think I prefer the Orly as it's more subtle and not as high hued in your face blue as is the OPI.

  16. Great comparison! I too bought Birds of a Feather at a place that only had them in the boxed set but I'm happy to own both of these gorgeous blues. I love colors like this so much! Peachy Parrot on the other hand...yuck.

  17. I prefer the Orly cause it's lighter and well, prettier. The Opi is still gorgeous but there are other polishes like that.

  18. I have the opi shade and love the color but hate the way it stains the nail and cuticle when removed. Is this the case with the orly? Thanks.
