Nail Polish Dupes List

post #1 of 50
Thread Starter 
I thought it'd be interesting to share polish dupes, whether it's a high low dupe or the same shade across similarly priced brands. I'm inspired since receiving my February Julep Maven box and discovering that one of the shades looks identical to a Zoya I already own.
Also, while I love all polish, I don't necessarily want to pay upwards of $14+ for a brand like Butter London or Deborah Lippmann. So I'm looking to find dupes when I can and shell out for more unique shades. Please feel free to share! I know there's plenty of polish hoarders, er..oops.. collectors and some amazeballs stashes, so I bet there's some great dupes to be found. biggrin.gif

Yay for pics! Thanks Dalylah and totally forgot about the Milani Gems being a dupe for DL Happy Birthday.. I have the Gems in my stash, too!
I'll be finding some more and will see about adding pics!

Anyone know of a dupe for OPI Don't Socra-Tease Me? I got my nails done yesterday with this color, then looked it up online and saw that it's an old color that has been discontinued, and I absolutely adore it!

 

 

700

^ That's the color on my nails.

I have the Grey's Anatomy by WnW...love it!

 

I love the Sally Hansen's Lustre line, I got a couple, but now they're all gone. Does anyone know of dupes for some/any of them?

My Walgreen's, Wal-Mart and Target had big displays of the full Lustre line last night lol.. maybe check again?
post #10 of 50

I've looked at CVS, walmart target and Ulta. My Walgreen's is out of the way, but I could check. Anyway, all 4 of the ones I did check either never got them in (Walmart and Target) or were wiped out months ago (CVS and Ulta).

They are all at Walgreens still and online at walgreens.com

post #12 of 50

I would love to know a dupe for Essie "Pound Cake".  Also a list of Chanel dupes.  Love the Chanel colors, but cannot afford them all.

 

Thanks for this thread!

Yup yup, saw them at my Walgreens on Saturday.

post #14 of 50

I've reviewed one dupes:

1. China Glaze Orange marmelade

 

2. Cheaper variant - Look by BIPA – Fire cracker

 

Pictures are taken on different light, and that's the reason they do not look as similar on pictures as they are in real life. I love this color and recommend! :)

They're part of the permanent collection now. I see displays at most big box and drugstores.

Wet n Wild Toppings collection has dupes for their Be Jeweled collection from last year

post #21 of 50

CoverGirl Boundless Color Violet Vision 570 is a really pretty lavender that is also really old (I've had it for ever!). Recently found a dupe for it. WnW Wild Shine Rain Check.

 

Added bonus: If you're getting a bride's maid dress from David's Bridal, this is an exact match for the color Bluebird.

post #22 of 50

Essie borrowed and Blue and China Glaze Sea Spray

post #23 of 50

The top one is Sally Hansen Insta-dry Grape Going! And the bottom one is Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Rock Bottom. Almost the same but Grape Going! has blue flecks in it.

 

 

 

Cover Girl Blue You on the left. WnW Magnetic Don't Break the Circuit on the right. If you don't count that the one is magnetic (which I don't since the magnetics never work for me).

 

And I must really like this blue because I somehow ended up with 4 nearly identical ones. From top to bottom:

Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Teal Steal

Sinful Colors Love Nails

NYC Empire State Blue

Cover Girl Rhythmic Blue

 

On the left is Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Pumping Iron. On the right is Nichole by O.P.I. Positive Energy.

Great swatches, thanks!

Anyone know of a great dupe for rumple's wiggin' from the Shrek OPI collection? That was my favorite shade ever & out of all of the bottles of nail polish I own, that one somehow managed to "explode":(

post #26 of 50

Apparently, Essie Lilacism is dupe. But I don't own either. I found it on http://alluringmum.blogspot.com/2010/07/opi-rumples-wiggin-vs-essie-lilacism.html

post #27 of 50

Here are my dupes, for more details check blog, label Dupe ;)

polishes:

OPI - I'm indi-a mood for love

Essie  - Funny face

Catrice - Hot or not?

 

post #28 of 50

I was just looking at some blogs and I was wondering if anyone has both Sally Hansen-Strobe Light and Julep-Yumi? If so can you do swatches side by side?

I found this picture but no swatches

post #29 of 50

Zorabell, I have both now- I'm trying to convince myself that yumi is a teensy bit darker and slightly more glitter dense the SH (but I could just be hoping).  ;) If it's not a dead-on dupe, it's so close it might as well be....

 

For chanels, Revlon's Carbonite is a pretty close dupe for Chanel Graphite, and Perplex is a dupe of Chanel Paradoxal, Black with Envy is a dupe of Chanel Black pearl.  (Revlon seems to do a really good job cloning chanel polishes!)

 

Going through my (way overflowing stash), to put on my swap list-I found there is a boots polish (no7 # Blackberry) that is a dupe of Revlon Rock Royalty.

 

I love all the dupes Revlon has also done of Deborah Lippman, since I refuse to pay that much for polish ;)

Thanks for letting me know I figured if Julep ever discontinued Yumi I would pick up the Sally Hansen.
