Pinkie and middle: RBL Piu Mosso, two coats
Ring and index: Contrary Polish The Boulevard, three coats
I used on all nails Essence Hardening Nail Base and Cult Nails Wicked Fast as Top Coat.
Now while these two are certainly related idea-wise there are aplenty of differences, I therefore list the particularities of each separately:
Contrary Polish The Boulevard
- prussian blue base color
- sheer jelly
- copper shimmer
- cost: USD 11.00 (full sized bottle)
RBL Piu Mosso
- deep dark pure navy base color
- cream formula to perfection
- copper shine
- cost USD: 20.00
Verdict: Piu Mosso created quite a hype when it was released back in 2011 and I have been waiting patiently if it would come back to snatch it for my collection. However, I prefer The Boulevard over Piu Mosso for the prussian blue base and the clearly more visible shimmer.
I received Contrary Polish The Boulevard as gift from the lovely Carrie from Contrary Polish. It can be ordered though with Llarowe in full size bottles. And following Carrie's Blog you will learn of availabilities of mini-bottles to be ordered directly from her. I ordered RBL Piu Mosso from their own website here.
Now here the question comes again - which one would you prefer?
I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for passing by!!!
