DUPES! Battle of the Cornflower Blues

Happy Hump Day Pretty Polishers! So today I’m bringing you another edition of DUPES! I love finding Dupes, comparing Dupes, and keeping a list of Dupes! Cornflower blues have been everywhere lately, especially during the Spring time so of course I have been seeing them pop up everywhere. Here are three polishes that have this similar blue shade.

I recently purchased Mind the Gap, Victoria by Rimmel London UK because as soon as I saw it in store I thought to myself, oh for sure this is a dupe of Bikini So Teeny by essie. I found it at Walgreen’s for under $2. I love these 60 second dry Rimmel London polishes. They all have great formulas, apply smooth, and are SO affordable. Let’s see how they compare.

As you can see Mind the Gap, Victoria is a much darker and bright cornflower blue than the rest.

Bikini So Teeny is a medium cornflower blue with teeny bits of shimmer that you can’t even see on the swatch.

Salt Water Happy is the lightest of the bunch being a light cornflower blue.

So, the conclusion is that none of these guys are true dupes. You will have a rainbow of cornflower blue though 🙂


Mind the Gap, Victoria has an amazing formula and the brush is uber thick which is helpful when applying because all you need is 2 good strokes. This was so easy to work with and creamy. Everything I love in a polish! This is 2 coats.
