Hi Friends! Today, we are excited to roll out our very first Dupe Report! The Dupe Report will feature our favorite finds and dupes of popular colors within the nail polish community. We’ll help you decide whether or not to stick to the real goods or go with the dupes.
In this edition, we will be looking at some glitter polishes that I stumbled upon at Forever21. Simply named “Grey Multi-Glitter” and “Blue Multi-Glitter,” these beauties are dupes for NCLA’s Sugar Fix and Deborah Lippmann’s Glitter In The Air. I have been eyeing both polishes for quite some time, but couldn’t really justify paying full price for them. So you can imagine my excitement when I spotted these similar colors at Forever21, for less than 1/4 of the cost ($2.80 each)! Let’s weigh in…
While I love Deborah Lippman’s formula, this Blue Multi-Glitter polish from Forever21 is a steal. Like Deborah Lippmann’s Glitter in the Air, this polish is a pastel blue with blue & pink glitter. The formula is milky and actually quite smooth upon application. I also own Revlon’s Whimsical, which many people say is an exact dupe of DL’s Glitter in the Air. However, I found that this polish is more opaque than both Revlon & DL. This makes it a winner in my book!
Luxe or Not?
Verdict: LUXE. This polish is not only inexpensive, but the formula is also more opaque.
NCLA’s Sugar Fix is a quite popular color among the nail blogging community. A grey jelly polish with blue & pink glitter, this Forever21 polish an exact replica of Sugar Fix. The formula for this polish was a bit more gunky than I had hope, but it’s nothing a top coat can’t cure. I have to admit, I’ve never tried a NCLA polish. However, at $2.80, this Forever21 polish is a great find and will hold me over until I do get my hands on the real deal.
Luxe or Not?
Verdict: LUXE. This polish is a winner to me, particularly because there is no shortage in glitter chunks!
