Olive & June 2021 Winter Review and Comparisons

Olive & June surprised me with these shades... in the best way possible. I've decided to compare these new shades to their Olive & June counterparts and non-brand, duplicate shades. All photos are shown using 2 coats of polish. Happy shopping!


Bunny Slope


Bunny Slope is described as a "wintery white ivory." This shade is noticeably different in both images, but I've chalked it up to lighting and the color it's next to. When Bunny Slope is next to pure white shades, it appears whiter in color and when it's placed next to pink-y shades, it looks warmer. In all honesty, neither of these photos capture Bunny Slope in its' truest form. In real life, it's milky and a bit yellow-ey.

Cable Knit


Cable Knit is described as a "dreamy, classic cream with a hint of peach." Again, this shade is noticeably different in both images, but these photos were taken on different days with different lighting... not the best for comparisons, but if you're familiar with any of the comparison shades, you get the idea.

Into The Trees


Into The Trees is described as a "dark spruce-y evergreen" and was voted Olive & June's most popular shade from the collection. HUGE fan of this shade, but, as you can see, there are many identical dupes.

Cozy Up


Cozy Up is described as a "warm, brick red with a touch of brown." This was one of my favorite shades from the collection because Olive & June doesn't have anything like it in their lineup. The formula was excellent and so was the finish.

Velvet Pouf


Velvet Pouf is described as a "dark, luxurious velvety purple." Surprisingly, I don't own many purples like this in my collection (I had a hard time finding dupes), but I think this shade is a must for any nail polish enthusiast. It is a true, deep purple. Most of my purples lean red or blue.

Caramel Budino


Caramel Budino is described as a "toasty, caramel toffee brown" and it's as delicious to look at as it sounds. This shade is truly unique and unexpected in the best way.

Sundance Shimmer


Sundance Shimmer is described as a "metallic, bronze shimmer." If shimmer and rose gold are your jam, this shade is for you!

Ruby Shimmer & Lilac Shimmer


Ruby Shimmer is described as a "glam, metallic, red shimmer" and Lilac Shimmer is described as a "soft, lilac shimmer." Personally, I don't love shimmer or sparkle, so these weren't for me, but they are beautiful nonetheless.
