A Great Alternative to No More War

Hot Topic Comrad Green Nail Polish

Do you guys remember when I said Hot Topic colors rocked?  Well, this is a prime example of how unique their colors just are! 

Introducing Comrad Green.  Described as an olive green creme comparable to Rescue Beauty Lounge's popular fall shade, No More War.  Quite possibly one of the closest dupes out there to No More War.

Check out some swatches below.

Olive Green Nail Polish Comparisons

On both comparisons above, three coats were used to show you guys the true differences.  However, you'll only need two to achieve bottle color.  When two coats were used, you couldn't hardly tell the difference between them.

No More War is a deeper olive green compared to Comrad Green which leans more towards the army green range.  But still, both are very much alike. 

Bottle Comparisons 

I scored big time with this one.  I found it at my Hot Topic store in the clearance bin for only $.99!  So, make sure you hop on over to Hot Topic and check it out.

Ok wow I (of course) am loving this! My only concern is that it will chip within like .003 seconds since it's a "cheap" polish. How's the wear?

Steph said on Jan 11th, 2009 11:07 am
Hi Kelly, The wear is actually pretty good. I usually put a topcoat on every two or three days and never really had any problems. I have more problems with the wierd sized brush than anything :)

Steph said on Jan 11th, 2009 11:08 am
Aww, thanks Kia! This color would look fab on you :)

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

Hi Sarah,
I'm not sure about retail stores, but you can still find them on

Sarah said, on Jun 12th, 2012 2:19 pm regarding Summer Collection: China Glaze Poolside
Can I still buy them in the stores now?

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
