OPI Fall 2012 Collection Comparison Swatches!!
I’ll just be including some requested comparisons and a few that I think will benefit people including polishes that Jen did not feature in her post. ^_^
If anyone can think of some other polishes they’d like to see compared here, let me know in the comments section. If I own both polishes then I will update this post with swatches!
If you missed my posts on the OPI Fall 2012 collections you can see them here:
OPI Every Month Is Oktoberfest vs. ANNY The Answer Is Love
Just by looking at bottle shots of these two I could tell that it was gonna be close! You can see swatches of The Answer Is Love [HERE]. Let’s take a look at the swatches. ^_^
Shown here is 2 coats of each. Not exact dupes, but very close! The shimmer in The Answer Is Love is a bit stronger with a more copper orange undertones. But to the naked eye there is barely a noticeable difference. Since the ANNY polish is not easily obtainable in the US, OPI’s Every Month Is Oktoberfest is your closest option if you are lemming after ANNY The Answer Is Love. ^_^
NOPI Mermaid For Each Other vs. Missha HRG01 vs. Peridot
Just by looking at the bottle shots here, you can already tell that NOPI Mermaid For Each Other (MFEO) is not another Peridot dupe (thankfully). I pulled out my bottle of Missha HRG01 because it looked pretty dang close.
Dupe City Bitch! Dupe, Dupe City B…. I’ll stop. Mermaid For Each Other (MFEO) and HRG01 are damn near identical! I used 2 coats of each and 3 coats of Peridot. You cannot tell them apart from the naked eye. The only thing that gives HRG01 away as being different is the horrific fake rose scent that they added to the polish.
OPI Nein! Nein! Nein! OK Fine! vs. Essie Power Clutch
I honestly thought that Essie Power Clutch (PC) and OPI Nein! Nein! Nein! Ok Fine! would be closer than this, but my eyes were apparently playing tricks on me. Definitely NOT dupes. 2 coats of each polish here.
Rimmel Lava Red vs. OPI German-icure
I remembered that I had my beloved Rimmel Lava Red in my collection. It’s a bit HTF these days so I wanted to see how OPI German-icure compared. Not dupes, German-icure is darker with more of a dried blood/brown tone to it than Lava Red. I personally think you need both.
OPI Deutsch You Want Me Baby vs. Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Orange Splash
I snagged a bottle of Sally Hansen Orange Splash from the same Fall 2012 display with In A Flurry. I couldn’t find any swatches of Orange Splash online but I figured it’s orange so I needed it. Not a dupe like I was guessing for OPI Deutsch You Want Me Baby (DYWMB), but still gorgeous! Orange Splash is very much a Summer orange while DYWMB is all about the Fall. 2 coats of each polish here.
OPI Danke Shiny Red vs. A England Perceval
A England Perceval is my absolute favorite garnet/jewel toned red. I wanted to see how OPI Danke Shiny Red compared. Not even close my friends. 2 coats of each. Danke Shiny Red is pretty, but Perceval just has more depth. ♥
OPI DS Luxurious vs. China Glaze Riveting
And saving my two favorites for last, DS Luxurious compared to China Glaze Riveting (another all time favorite). While these two are very close they are not dupes. DS Luxurious is a touch darker and has larger gold particles. Both are gorgeous. If you have one you don’t necessarily need the other, and Riveting is going to cost you less since it lacks the diamond dust that’s in the OPI DS line. 2 coats of each polish here. I love both and I’m glad I have both. ^_^
Thank you for checking out my comparison shots! If you can think of anything else you’d like to see me do comparisons with, please shoot me a message! I hope you also liked my incredible shrinking nail length, haha! These photos have been sitting for a bit and my talons have grown since then. I think I might file ‘em down to this length again though. Easier to type with.
