True. Plus, it has very thin formula and there are needed at least 3 or even more coats, so drying lasts hours! I only use it when I have nothing to do all day.
I don't think that Hey! Get In The Lime and Mint Candy Apple look alike, they're very different imho. MCA has more blue note I think.

I don't think they do either. I personally found Mint Candy Apple to only really flatter cool-toned skin. That's just my humble little opinion though :p

^ I have both too and while I like Mint Candy Apple - it is a bit hard to apply and a bit too "milky" if you know what I meant. Hey! Get in Lime is nice and easier to apply despite not having a wide brush

This is my comparison pic for OPI Hey! Get in Lime (top) and Essie Mint Candy Apple (bottom)

I did it with flash, because I don't think there are that many flash comparisons of these two colors!

Could you guys recommend a dark red/wine OPI or Essie nail polish that looks like this one?

Omg, I finally [FONT=verdana,geneva,lucida,'lucida grande',arial,helvetica,sans-serif]managed to get[/FONT] these fabulous colours from Catrice:

London’s Weather Forecast


Chanel inspired From Dusk To Brown (I change my mind about taupe shades)

and Sold Out For Ever-How ironic!
It's probably the closest Green Jade dupe.

can someone compare OPI's Sapphire in the Snow and Siberian Nights, both look dark purple/blue-ish on swatches and I cannot really tell the difference. Anyone knows?

^ I don't own either shades, but judging from the photos on Nailgal and whatkatiedidherpolish.blogspot.com...
Siberian Nights is a deep eggplant shade, while Sapphire in the Snow is a deep bluish-purple.

You can see the difference in the following photos:
