GA-DE Swatches - New collection

February 22, 2013

Recently the Israeli brand GA-DE Cosmetics released a new addition to their line of nail polish, and of course I grabbed some of them for myself.
This company has various finishes and a large selection of colors, but nothing really had me excited  until this collection came out. I have a lot of their polishes and I really love this brand, so I would be happy to recommend them to you.

Green Garnet 821 is a shimmery dark green which I think might be a dupe for Essie Dive Bar. This color is really rich and gorgeous, it even looks a bit duo chrome in the bottle but it didn't really show on the nails. 
I'm not a big fan of greens but this color is definatly wearable for me and Iliked it!
For this photo I used 2 coats, no top coat.

Green Saphire 820 is a duo chrome shimmery green that reminded me of China Glaze Unpredictable from the Bohemian collection. I wouldn't say this is a dupe because I think it's a bit darker, but defiantly looks like is could be another color from this collection. This is also 2 coats, no top coat.

Gold Dust 813 is a glass flecked polish consist of tiny gold and red tiny flakes is a slightly tinted base. I couldn't tell the color of the base since it was very sheer, but it wasn't clear either. I needed 3 coats for a good coverage.
This one could be a perfect dupe for PUPA 809 Gold Deco from the new Diamond Deco collection (PUPA's collection includes 4 shades, and it looks like GA-DE have the dupes for all four of them, 3 of them are quite the same and another one is a bit different but still could be a good alternative).

Tangerine Garnet 815 is the same as Gold Dust but the base is more pink/red tinted. It looks like the glass flecks in these two polishes are the same, but because of the tinted base it looks different. The final color on the nails is somewhere between orange and brown. This is dupe for PUPA 810 Copper Deco. I only needed 2 coats, no top coat.

Gypsy Fever 816 is has the same pink/red base color as Tangerine Garnet but the glass flecks in it are mainly red and some are silver/light blue. Actually it's really interesting how these polishes have different combinations of the same base color and glass flecks, and they create these different shades. This one is not a dupe so there's something nice about that :) Also used 2 coats for the photos, no top coat.

For some reason I really love dupes, but I was mainly happy to see something different from GA-DE Cosmetics. We rarely get to see something interesting around here from Israeli brands, and this was refreshing even though we have PUPA's collection here as well, but somehow this gives me hope that we will be seeing more interesting colors and finishes from this brand.
