This has been one of the most anticipated DUPES posts of this year so far. I already had Charmed, purchased Tiers of Joy, and Persis-tint came my way by coincidence so I decided to throw it in the mix here because they were all so similar.
Do you think these are DUPES? Well, let’s find out. First let’s take a look at these one by one:
CHARMED by KL POLISH
This is a pearlized lavender with blue shimmer flash. GORGE!!!! It’s a tiny bit brush strokey but thats normal for pearlized polishes like this one. It covers very well in 2 coats. This one was actually named by her followers after she did a Twitter poll to ask for suggestions. It’s very fitting though because she loves the show Charmed!
TIERS OF JOY by essie
This is a lilac with a green/gold shifty shimmer. So fitting for Spring! Fantastic formula, this baby was opaque in 2 easy coats.
PERSIS-TINT by SALLY HANSEN
This is a beautiful lilac with blue shimmer. Gorgeous formula! It applies so well and is opaque in 2 coats.
Ok now for the true test… let’s compare side by side:
GUYS!!!! Are you just as surprised as I am?!?! I could have sworn that Charmed and Tiers of Joy were DUPES but they ARE NOT!!!! Tiers of Joy has a green shift instead of a blue shift. It turns out, Persis-tint and Charmed are the DUPES!!! I mean, they aren’t exact to the T, but they are soo soo soooooo close. Look at them up close:
Charmed is a tiny teeny weensy bit more lilac-y, but then these two are on the nails you cannot tell they are different polishes. So if you have been on the hunt for a DUPE to Charmed, it’s here!!! Run to your nearest Walgreens and get Persis-tint by Sally Hansen or if you don’t want to try to find it at a retailer you can purchase it on Amazon here.
I’m so happy I found a DUPE for Charmed, I get that request weekly. OH! And in case you are wondering how these compare to Rainbow Wishes by Nails Inc, I already did a DUPES comparison for that one and you can check it out here.
Here is the break down –
KL Polish – $8.50 but they are going out of business and Charmed is no longer available
Sally Hansen Mega Strength – $4.49 – purchase it here.
essie – $9.50 – You can purchase this one here.
Do you own any of these polishes? I’m so glad I was able to find a DUPE for Charmed! Let me know in the comments below if you have any Dupes requests and I will do my best to do them.
