Nail Polish Dupe List!

  1. 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!)
