Comparison Polishes

Polishes Dupes..


As pointed out to me by my 10 year old daughter!! Hello all again, I'm here with a post that I really wasn't expecting to be doing. But over the weekend I was going through my polishes with my daughter, when she pointed out to me I had polishes that looked the same and I had no idea! So I thought it would make an interesting blog post.


So we have Barry M Silk in Mist vs 2true shade 48, Barry M Silk in Heather vs 2true shade 11, and Models own Indian Ocean vs Jess Breathless. On looking at the in the bottles I can see some similarities, but lets take a look when painted on my nails..



 
Mist vs shade 48 looked more like each other in the bottle. 2 coats of the Barry M whereas the 2true took 3 coats and no topcoat. Both are very pretty but no exact dupes. Barry M Silk priced at £3.99 and 2true priced at £1.99.




Heather vs shade 11 are very similar, the only difference is the finish. They are a very close colour match. 2 coats of the Barry M and 2 coats of 2true, again no topcoat. Barry M silk priced at £3.99 and 2true at £1.99.





Indian Ocean vs Breathless. These two were the closest match of the 3. But the Jess took more coats, Models Own only took 2 coats, but to get the same look the Jess took 4!! The shift between blue and pink in the sun is exactly the same. Models Own from the Beetle Juice Collection priced at £4.99 and Jess priced at £1.00.



I had fun doing this post, hope you like it too :)
Stay safe and much love...

  11. Great post, it shows these must be your favorite colors. that's why you were prompted to get more of shades you already had, without even realizing it ;)
