American Apparel - Army Jacket VS. ABOP Franken

APPLICATION: Smooth on both (a little smoother on franken)
COATS: 1 of each
TOPCOAT?: Not till outdoor photos with polka dots.
SOURCE: American Apparel, ABOP Franken using Orly colors
COMMENTS: I was excited to try Army Jacket because it's one of my favorite shades of green to wear. But then I noticed the color looked familiar. What?! I already have this! It's the same color as my franken from October based on a paint chip! Can you tell which is which in the photos? The last photo has the answer.
Excuse the bumpies - my base coat is thickening. Also, polka dots done in AA - Hunter.

Happy New Year!
