Sipping ginger ale
There is a dupe list in the general makeup forum, but I think that the Nail Care thread needs a dupe list of it’s own! The purpose of this list is to have alternatives to those hard to find, holy grail polishes or to offer cheaper alternatives. I know that I am always on the hunt because I don’t like have repeats in my stash. Please add your own. (I know I have more to add soon!)

These are some dupes I have come across: (there may be some slight variation but most are close enough!)

Sinful Colors - Rise and Shine / China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise

Sinful Colors - Big Daddy / OPI A Good Mandarin is Hard to Find

Sinful Colors – Frenzy / Nicole by OPI – Gone Wishin’

Sally Hansen Complete Manicure – Commander in Chic / Sephora – Metro Chic / Essie – Merino Cool

Sally Hansen Complete Manicure – Hidden Treasure / GOSH – Rainbow

Zoya – Pinta / OPI - Sapphire in the Snow / Diamond Cosmetics – Crushed Velvet

Zoya – Raven / Chanel – Black Satin

Zoya – Mira / OPI – Funkey Dunkey

China Glaze – Emerald Fitzgerald / OPI – Cuckoo for this Color

Zoya – Breezi / OPI – Suzi Says Feng Shui

Zoya – Yummy / OPI – Just Groovy

Wet N Wild – Gray’s Anatomy / Deborah Lippman – Wicked Game / Katy Perry for OPI – Not Like the Movies
