Nail Polish Battle: OPI Girls Love Ponies vs. Hey Baby

The Nail Polish Battle series continue, this time the battle is between two OPI pinks - Girls Love Ponies and Hey Baby. Girls Love Ponies is from OPI Mustang collection and Hey Baby is from Gwen Stefani collection. I've been wanting to do a comparison and battle of these two for so long, but I don't own Hey Baby and I really didn't want to buy just for this. Mirka from Nerdic Nails however owns it and she was kind enough and let me borrow it for a while, so I finally had the chance to see my self how similar these two really are.

They sure look quite similar in the bottles!
 
On nail there is a slight difference, but they really are quite close colorwise. Hey Baby is little bit lighter than Girls Love Ponies and it is also just slightly warmer toned than GLP. The difference is so small that if you don't look too closely, you might think they are the same polish.

These are quite similar quality and formula-wise too, they both need two coats for full coverage and they are really easy to apply. Hey Baby might be just a tad more sheer as I felt like it was in the borderline if it could have needed thin third coat. Girls Love Ponies is somewhat at the other end in the two coat range as it almost coveres with only one coat, but it really needs second one to be fully opaque. I have two coats of both here, no base or top coat. They both have beautiful shine alone even without top coat and they both also level out nicely.

This is really beautiful shade of pink and Girls Love Ponies is one of my favorite pinks, so one of these is certainly a must have! However, I'm pretty sure you won't need both since they are so close.

Final verdict: Pick one or the other and I'm sure you'll be happy with it. I'm going to stick with Girls Love Ponies since that's the one I own and that Mustand cap is so cool, I love it!

Do you guys own either one of these pink beauties?

  1. Tätä vertailua on kaivattu! Mulla on Hey Baby, enkä oo uskaltanu ostaa Girls Love Poniesia kun aattelin niiden olevan samanlaiset. Ja onhan ne, mut silti haluisin tuo Mustang-lakan - ihan vaan korkin ja nimen takia :D Ja ainahan Hey Babyn vois myydä, hmm..

    1. Ne on kyllä tosiaan sen verran samanlaiset, että ehkä kahden omistaminen ei ole kovin perusteltua. Ehkä sun pitäis kuitenkin hommata tuo GLP niin saisit ite verrattua, kummasta tykkäät enempi ja myyt vaikka sitten toisen poies. :) Kieltämättä tuo Mustang-lakkojen korkki on niin hieno ja lakan nimikin on huippu, jos nyt lähtisin jompaa kumpaa näistä hommaamaan oisi se varmasti ihan noillakin perusteilla tuo GLP. :D

  3. Hähää! Mä pähkäilin just näitten kanssa, kun tikutin OPIa. Arvaa menikö tikut sekaisin? Mutta selvitettyäni, että GLP on kylmemmän sävyinen, löysin oikean tikun oikeaan lakkaan. Nämä ovat ehkä täydellisimmät fuksiat mitä voi olla olemassa. Mulla on harmillisesti vain pikkupullo Hey Babyä :(

  4. Ehkä Hey Baby saa riittää.. Luulen, että se on näistä kahdesta miulle se parempi hiukkasen lämpimämpänä sävynä.

    1. Kyllä miä luulen kanssa, että jos toinen näistä löytyy, niin se riittää. Varsinkin jos se on vielä se itselle sopivampi versio. :)
