Comparison: Chanel Malice and Salon Perfect Red Dahlia

Monday, August 19, 2013

As I was swatching the Salon Perfect polishes I came across one that I positively adored. Well, I liked all of them; but one made me take pause. (I purchased Chanel Malice and Salon Perfect Red Dahlia was sent to me for review.) It made me wonder how close it was to the highly sought after Chanel Malice.

So I grabbed my Chanel Malice and set to comparing them.

Let's just move straight to the comparison swatches. When I do comparisons I never call something a dupe. I leave that up to you. I just give you the photos and descriptions.

In this photo you can see a very slight difference. But the shimmer is the same.

Here's a close-up for you.

This photo shows the most difference although they are still extremely similar. The Chanel has a little more pink/purple tendency.

What do you think? Are they close?

Comparison post: MAC Bad Fairy and Nails Inc New Burlington Place

Tuesday, July 2, 2013

I have a great comparison post for you. Neither of these polishes is easy to find; but both are quite beautiful.

MAC Bad Fairy and Nails Inc New Burlington Place are gorgeous, metallic, duochrome polishes. They shift from a deep orange/copper to a dusty pink.

The swatches below are with two coats of each. Nails Inc New Burlington Place covered better on the first coat. There is no top coat on either of the polishes.

Bad Fairy may be just a slight bit darker - but not by much. The similarities extend to the finish too. Both polishes have a super shimmer to them.

What do you think? Are they close enough to be dupes?

These polishes are from my personal collection. They were not sent to me for review.

Nail Venturous Floam - Salon Perfect Kaboom comparison

Monday, May 27, 2013

The new Salon Perfection Neon Collision has some people wondering how close Kaboom is to Floam. And if that sentence made sense to you then you, like me, spend way too much time with polish. But then we knew that already...

So I am comparing Nail Venturous Floam to Salon Perfect Kaboom for you.

Let's just jump right to the photos.

Here is a bottle shot of both. You can see that Kaboom looks slightly more green than Floam.

You can tell the difference on the nail. But the difference is not that great. Floam is slightly bluer than Kaboom. Both polishes are shown over Sinful Colors Unicorn. I used two coats of each.

What do you think? The difference is slight except for the price. The price for Kaboom is $3.98 at Walmart. I found Nail Venturous on wanelo.com for $14.99.

Salon Perfect was provided to me for an honest review. Nail Venturous was a gift.


Comparison: OPI "On Her Majestys Secret Service" and Zoya FeiFei

Sunday, October 14, 2012

While trying my new OPI On Her Majestys Secret Service from the Skyfall collection I had a moment of Deja Vu. So I went and looked through my Zoya polishes. Sure enough there was FeiFei and they looked pretty similar.

So I did comparison swatches for you. In my opinion OPI On Her Majestys Secret Service may be just a tad bit darker than Zoya FeiFei.

What are your thoughts? My opinion is they are so similar you only need one of them.

Pick a purple - Zoya and Sally Hansen

Friday, August 17, 2012

These two polishes looked pretty close in color - in the bottle. Applied they are similar but in no way alike.

Zoya Suri and Sally Hansen Flair are both deep purples. But the Sally Hansen leans more toward the pink hues and Zoya leans more toward the blue hues.

This is two coats of each.
