Dupe? - Fly Czechbook Room For Blues

A comparison of blue and torquoise polishes is what's in store today. This is a comparison I was really curious about while trying to decide whether or not to buy OPI Can't Find My Czechbook. So in case some of you out there are still contemplating (since the collection seems to still be widely available) this is for you guys!

Fly: dark turqoise cream. Looks green compared to the other two, much darker and much more green than CFMC. Originally, I was hesitant on buying CFMC because comparisons I saw made them out to be the same colour just very slightly different in shade. Turns out they are completely different colours.

Can't Find My Czechbook (CFMC): Robin egg blue creme, dusty/less vibrant, maybe has a barely-there green influence in colour but really I do not see any green at all for this colour. More milky (white) than NRFB. Looks muted next to NRFB.

No Room For The Blues (NRFB): more vibrant (not dusty at all) than CFMC, even though darker colour. Very different colour from CFMC. It is a mix of cornflower and cobalt blue.

Formula-wise they are all great, dry with a high shine and require two coats.


These three polishes are completely different. Once again the choice comes down to what type of colour you like. I am a total sucker for teals/turqoise so naturally my favorite is Fly. However, now that I see how muted CFMC really is, I find this blue much more wearable. Mid-toned blues have never got my heart racing because I don't like the way they look against my yellow-toned skin. NRFB is a beautiful colour that I wish matched my skintone better.

Which polish out of these three do you like? Do you own any of these polishes?
