Comparisons and Dupes
Ready for some camera zapping?
China Glaze “Son of a Peach!” VS China Glaze “Flip Flop Fantasy”
What’s the difference? See after the jump!!!
Color Club came out with a black holo named “Revvvolution” (complete with 3 v’s) back in 2009 as part of their Femme Fatale collection.
Now, as part of a 2013 collection, they’ve come out with another named “Beyond”.
Which will come out on top?

Swatches, Review and Comparison of two yellows from the Spoiled line:
See how these two compare after the jump!!
Today I have three polishes that have been on my wishlist for a very long time.
(Seriously, ebay browsing- you get me in big trouble)
One of these may look familiar as another Deborah Lippmann “Glitter in The Air”/Revlon “Whimsical”. Surprisingly, this one ended up being a bit different than “Whimsical”; but I’ll throw that out in front of you now and hope to bait you to lure you after the jump to see it later in this post.
From South Korean cosmetics and lacquer company, Tony Moly:
See if you can remember those names all the way after the jump!!
Nicole by OPI “Mer-Maid For Each Other” VS China Glaze “Unpredictable”
I have been anxiously awaiting the new China Glaze Bohemian Collection but it was KD who initially brought this comparison to my attention. While waiting to see the Bohemian Collection pop up locally, I saw a few swatches posted on other blogs. When the possible dupe was brought to my attention I compared what I was seeing in these swatches to what I was seeing in person and I was sure that, while super close, the Nicole was a little richer with a better duochrome.
A set finally turned up at Sallys (which after my recent trips I’ve decided I really need to head there first above other beauty stores. They always have what I’m looking for, are always on time and the girls always know exactly what I’m talking about! Sigh, Sally love.) and I grabbed a bottle of the China Glaze last night for today’s comparison.

Nicole by OPI has just released a new collection exclusive to Targets nationwide. It is a limited edition display, titled “Back To Cool”, and offers a few re-runs and a few (not so)hidden gorgeous new gems.
I picked up two polishes from this collection: a pink/blue-infused gold (“For Gold Times Sake” seen HERE, link will open in new window) and the one seen in this post – “Mer-Maid For Each Other”.
The gold caught my eye because of how unusual it seemed and this one because I instantly thought we had yet another Chanel “Peridot”/Jessica “Iridescent Eye”/OPI “Just Spotted The Lizard” on our hands. Particularly that last one as it would be interesting to see if OPI simply repackaged the Lizard. I said it.
Them’s fightin’ words!
While the rest of the display was brand newly stocked, this was the very last “Mer-maid” at my local Target…. Drama! Suspense! Intrigue! The best nail battle yet? …no, probably not. But the results are both unexpected and imperative to those looking to either buy/pass over this new display..
