Happy Mani Monday pretty polishers! Hope you had a great weekend. Thanks to everyone who entered my givewaway!! I will be randomly picking a winner soon, so stay tuned for the announcement in the next few days. 🙂
Today I’m sharing with you another edition of DUPES! In the ring, going head-to-head today are two beautiful blues:
Yoga-ta Get This Blue! by OPI vs. Bell-Bottom Blues by essie
I recently reviewed the essie Fall 2015 Collection here and Bell-Bottom Blues was one of my faves from the collection. They are really all gorgeous but this blue is just perfection. When I saw this OPI blue at the clearance section at Ulta I thought, WOW this looks just like Bell-Bottom Blues!!! So I had to get it. I didn’t have this polish when I made my live swatch and comparison video on YouTube so I figured I would get it to compare now. So let’s take a look at each one:
Yoga-ta Get This Blue by OPI
This is a navy almost midnight blue with beautiful shimmer. It is a ONE-coater and applies very smooth with no streaks. WOW! This is from the Spring 2008 India Collection, long long ago. The only downside to this stunner is removal. Double up on the base coat and be careful when removing because it did stain my fingers.
Bell-Bottom Blues by essie
This is a navy blue that leans to teal duo chrome with shimmer. Just a stunner! Opaque in ONE easy coat. It’s super pigmented and has an amazing formula. As I mentioned before this is from the Fall 2015 essie collection.
Now, let’s take a look at these side by side:
So, 2 ONE-coaters, 2 shimmery finishes, 2 blues, these are both just so pretty! However, they are not DUPES! As you can see here side by side, the essie polish is more teal and the OPI is more blue. They both have fantastic formulas and beautiful shimmer, but no DUPES here!
What did you think of these? Do you own either one?
