Some Nail Polishes and their Dupes
Hi IMBB Cuties,
After lipsticks and blushes (and err…recently highlighters too!), nail polishes are my favourite makeup items. From lights to brights, pastels to neons, whites to blacks (and whatever comes in between!), I love them all and the feeling is mutual…they love me too…hehe.
I have been recently gathering together every ounce of confidence I have….yes, I have been looking in all the nooks and corners of the house for it….and you guys want to know why? I’ll tell you – a few months ago when my niece returned from a holiday abroad, she gifted me 8 absolutely blinding neon nail paints!! I haven’t had the guts to wear them *as yet*, but I will do so soon and show all you lovely beauties.
While doing some tidying up and re-arranging of my nail polishes a while back, I realized the fact that I have some almost similar shades in my stash! I thought I’d do a post and share the comparisons with you guys.
INGLOT NAIL ENAMEL NO. 869 AND LOTUS COLOUR DEW NAIL ENAMEL 89 PLAYFUL PINK :
The Inglot Nail Enamel No. 869 is what I would describe as a bright berry-fuchsia. It has a creamy finish with absolutely no frost or shimmer. The Lotus Colour Dew Enamel 90 Playful Pink looks almost identical, but is more on the berry-red-pinkish side. A real good dupe for the Inglot nail enamel.
INGLOT NAIL ENAMEL NO. 972 AND COLORBAR NAIL LACQUER 51 WINDSOR ROSE
The Inglot Nail Enamel No. 972 is a light pretty pastel pink with a barely-there hint of frost. The Colorbar Lacquer No. 51 Windsor Rose is exactly the same shade, but a fraction less pastel. I really strained my eyes but could not notice any other obvious difference between the two.
CHAMBOR NAIL POLISH NO. 70 DAZZLING CANDY AND COLORBAR NAIL LACQUER 060 SANDEW (WEDDING COLLECTION)
I would describe the above Chambor nail polish as a high-frosted silvery-beige. This is one of my all-time favourites. The Colorbar nail lacquer shown above is also high-frosted, but more on the silvery-toffee coloured side and also the frost particles look a bit more bigger in this than in the Chambor one. Both are very awesome colours.
INGLOT NAIL ENAMEL NO. 971 AND DEBORAH MILANO 7 DAYS LONG NAIL POLISH NO. 827
The Inglot Nail Enamel shown above is from their pastels range and is a satin-finish light lilac colour. By satin finish I mean that there’s no obvious frost or shimmer, but just a kind of creamy sheen. The Deborah Milano nail polish is identical to the Inglot one, minus the satin sheen – it has a creamy finish. However, one point worth mentioning here is that the Deborah Milano nail polish looked really streaky on my nails.
Here are the swatches for all these on my hand (one coat each) :

Do please let me know what you think – are these good dupes or not?
