So I have noticed that my most popular blog post of the last couple of months is the one on Chanel Malice. I think this is mainly because I attempted to do some comparisons and possible dupes. So, I have tried to take better images of those polishes that are thought to be very close dupes as well as some in the brighter red spectrum.
I just grabbed ones I have previously compared against, along with some other reds you may have in your stash for comparison. As you can see, Sinful Color’s Lying Nails and Barielle’s Glammed Out Garnet are way off base. Germanicure is close in shade as are Sinful Color’s Rich in Heart and OPI’s Every Month is Oktoberfest. Here is a closer look with those last two.
The above picture was taken in natural light, its not great, but you can see the dupes.
My feeling is that none of these are a spot on dupe, but they are close. If you haven’t already striked out for Malice, now may be the time. In the UK the Spring 2013 collection has just come out and it was a limited edition. Otherwise, if you don’t want to shell out the RRP £18, then one of the above might help offset the need.
