Taboo?

Boots no7 galaxy 1 

I heard this polish is a dupe of Chanel Taboo, so naturally that made me go out and buy it! Unfortunately I don’t have Taboo to show you a comparison, but it really is very similar! 

Boots No 7 Galaxy is a deep black-purple base (looks more maroon coloured in the bottle) full of red, copper and purple shimmer. I don’t know whether I’d call it an out and out dupe, it seems to be SLIGHTLY more red toned in the bottle, but on the nail I can’t really see any difference.

Pink Gumballs

Candy shop 023

I used three coats of Candy Shop for the picture above, and seriously HOW FUN IS THIS?! I love the variety of glitter in the bubblegum pink jelly base, it’s just too cute. The formula was a bit thick, but not too problematic. Best part you ask? It’s super affordable!

A dead on dupe of Deborah Lippmann’s Ruby Red Slippers (Wet n Wild Behind Closed Doors is also a dupe). I don’t normally go for such dark polishes, so I definitely wouldn’t spend $18 on it, but for $2.99 I’m in. :)

Creamsicle

Bliss is This 029

True Love reminds me of a creamscicle. It is a creamy soft orangey peach. The formula is a cross between jelly and creme. A ‘hybrid’ if you will. It is very pretty and flowed nicely on the nail in three coats. This is my favorite of the three. This is the Chanel June dupe.

Orly Mysterious Curse 2

Mysterious Curse is a dark bluple with very strong blue shimmer. Look familiar? It’s pretty much a dead on dupe for another shade Orly gave us last Spring called Royal Velvet. The formula was okay, a little on the thick side and it started getting a bit goopy and hard to worth with on the second coat…probably nothing a little thinner couldn’t fix though. I used 2 coats for the photos below.

IridescentEye2

Today I’m going to be showing you all a Chanel Peridot dupe by Jessica called Iridescent Eye! Jessica is a brand I hadn’t heard of until recently and I was surprised to find is quite affordable.  You can pick up Iridescent Eye and many other Jessica polishes at Ninja Polish for $5.00 to $6.00!

Oh, Spiderman

Spiderman collection 070

Just Spotted the Lizard is a gold and green duochrome. I’ll say it once and I’ll say it again. I love an affordable dupe to an expensive polish. With that said, this is a dupe of Chanel Peridot. Very pretty and interesting color for any collection, and the formula was great too, three easy coats for full coverage.

I was disappointed. The shimmer doesn’t show up at all to the naked eye once on the nail. And let’s face it. It’s pretty much an exact dupe of China Glaze For Audrey…. :( This is 2 coats
