We’ve all been there, found the perfect polish only to see that it costs a non-justifiable amount of money… But that is where dupes come in! A dupe is essentially a duplicate of a high-price product at a much more affordable price tag! We have gathered our top five polish dupes for your enjoyment (and for the enjoyment of your wallet).
Chanel ‘Peridot’ vs. OPI ‘Just Spotted the Lizard’
Although in the bottle it may not look like it, this OPI shade is a perfect dupe for the metallic green Chanel shade.
Mac ‘Mean and Green’ vs. Orly ‘Space Cadet’
It seems that the best dupes of high-end polish brands are of their shade-changing metallic shades. We love this Orly dupe for Mac’s ‘Mean and Green’.
Deborah Lippmann ‘Glitter in the Air’ vs. Revlon ‘Whimsical’
This Revlon dupe is slightly more of a green base than the Deborah Lippmann one, but is still gorgeous nonetheless.
Zoya ‘Trixie’ vs. Sally Hansen ‘Celeb City’
Again with the metallic shades! A metallic silver is a must for any polish stash and why spend more $$ than you have to, with this Sally Hansen shade as an equally gorgeous alternative to Zoya’s ‘Trixie’.
OPI ‘Ate Berries in the Canaries’ vs. Sinful Colors ‘Dream On’
OPI is quite a budget friendly polish averaging $8 a bottle, but some of their seasonal ranges are limited edition and sell out so quickly that you never get a chance to try them! I had a manicure at the salon with this classic OPI shade but have never been able to purchase it. Upon finding this Sinful Colors in a clearance bin in Target I was ecstatic as it’s a great alternative and was only $2.50.
