Swatch Request Saturday – Search for Chanel Dupes
MariahGem wanted to know how Finger Paints Turquoise Tile from the Sunburst Summer collection compares to Sally Hansen’s Honeydew. As you can see, Honeydew leans more green.
After seeing Chanel’s new Mica Rose and hearing how it compares to fan favorite Flamingo, Denette requested a Flamingo dupe. Unfortunately I don’t have any polishes with Flamingo’s exact sparkle factor but Nubar Je t’aime comes pretty close. OPI Dancing In The Isles is just too metallic.
Of course people always want a low cost version of Chanel’s stunning shades and Cosmic Violine is no exception. The closest I could come is with OPI Kris Kringle Makes Me Tingle, a holiday Trade Secret exclusive. Kris Kringle’s shimmer is more garish and the base is more brown without the same depth as Cosmic Violine. I threw in Tulipe Noire just for funsies.
Reader Crotchfairy wanted to see Barry M’s Grey next to MAC On The Prowl and Rescue Beauty Lounge Stormy. The Barry M is much deeper.
The only shade I have that is remotely close is a custom blended CND shade. Get the recipe here.
