Morning Ladies!
Today is the first day back to work after a nice long weekend
for me atleast, So I figured I would brighten up your Tuesday,
& still try to stay within the dupe post range that I have started.
So I chose probably my favourite polish in my entire collection.
YAY you guessed it Revlons Whimsical!!! haha if you seen
the title which im pretty sure you did you already knew what I
was going to post about but I like to give you a friendly reminder!

Anyways, yes, this polish is one of my most favourite polishes I
own & if you have been living under a rock & dont know this;
Whimsical is a dupe of Deborah Lippmann's Glitter in the Air.
But I dont own the $19 bottle of Glitter in the Air, because I
honestly have never even seen it in stores & I dont think I want
it because Whimsical is already a god sent & it was only $5!
I searched everywhere for this polish & my friend found it for
me at superstore so I was super happy about that! I know this
kinda sucks for people who didnt get a chance to pick it up
because I am 80% sure it was limited edition, isnt that always
the way. So it is a D.O.D but I dont think you will be able to
pick it up unless u find it in a blog sale or from evil bay, im sorry,
but feel free to visit my post again & again to bask in its gorgeousness!

For these pictures I did one coat of my OPI Nail Envy Original,
Three coats of OPIs Whats With the Cattitude from the Shrek 2010
Collection, two coats of Revlons Whimsical, & one coat of Essie - Good
to go topcoat! Like I said before I am inlove with this polish, it is so amazing, 
& you ladies know how much I love blue polish & glitter so having  both 
of those things in one just makes this polish so much more amazing! The 
only thing is if you dont use a base underneath its pretty sheer & I think it
looks a little bit ridiculous, so to get the full effect of this gorgeous polish
you should definately do a base baby blue like I did to go with the blue
 hexagonal glitters, or even a pink like Essies Forget me Knots, would 
look amazing to bring out the pink hexagonal glitters more & give it a 
totally different look! If you ladies would like to see a post with a pink 
polish as a base definitely let me know & I would love to do it for you!! 

Thats all I have for you ladies today!
Even though I dont have the DL bottle to compare 
it to I still definitely think drugstore wins again!!!
What do u think? 
Were you lucky enough to get your hands on Whimsical?

OPI vs Drugstore Dupes!

Hi Ladies!
I sorry I have been pretty MIA for the last little while,
I was just enjoying my last few weeks of having my evenings
free before I had to start night school :( Lame. But I am back
& I have missed bloggin & all you ladies so much!

So I have been wanting to do dupe posts for such a long time,
& I asked some of you ladies on Twitter what your take was on
dupe posts & apparently everyone loves them & wants to see which
is awesome for me because I own a ridiculous amount of the exact
same or very similar color polishes but in two, three, or even four
different brands! I guess that I am always just drawn to similar colors
& when I see it at the store all I can think is OOOO I need it. & I never
stop to ask myself, wait do I already own a color that looks exactly like
this?!? But these three, well six, polishes that I am going to show you
today are good dupes because its expensive versus not expensive!!
YAY! & if your like me saving the extra few dollars to go towards another
new polish is a win win!

Anywayyyyy onto the post!!  
Did you miss out on the January 2011 OPI Katy Perry LE Collection?
Well your in luck because thats what I found some drugstore dupes for!!
First off lets start with the glitters, because u all know how much I love glitter!

OPI Teenage Dream VS Sally Hansen Strobe Light

I started off with one coat of my OPI Nail Envy Original.
On my pointer & middle finger I did two coats of ChG white on white
just to show what the base color of these glitters look like over white polish
rather than a naked nail. I did three coats of Teenage Dream on my middle &
ring finger. Then three coats of Strobe Light on my pointer & pinkie. These jelly
glitters are amazing, they are almost like a baby pink, rose gold color with micro
holo glitters, Teenage Dream is definately more jelly & has a thicker consistancy
than Strobe Light does. The only other real difference that I can see with
these two polishes is that Strobe Light doesnt have as much of a pink base to it,
it has more of a muted nude pink base, but becides that, they are dead on dupes.

OPI Last Friday Night VS Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Shooting Star

I started off with one coat of my OPI Nail Envy Original.
On my pointer & middle finger I again did two coats of ChG white on white
just to show what the base color of these glitters look like over white polish
rather than a naked nail. I did three coats of Last Friday Night on my middle &
ring finger. Then three coats of Shooting Star on my pointer & pinkie. As you
already know blue is definately one of my favourite colors of nailpolish, & these
jelly gllitters makes me love blues so much more. They both have micro holo glitters
& bigger hexagonal silver glitters. Just like Teenage Dream; Last Friday Night
definately has a thicker consistancy than Shooting Star does. As for the base color
as you can see in the pictures they look like the exact same polish. D.O.D

OPI The One That Got Away VS WNW Buy Me a Drink

Yet again I started off with one coat of my OPI Nail Envy Original.
On my pointer & middle finger I did two coats of Buy Me a Drink.
& on my Middle, Pinkie & thumb I did twocoats of  The One That Got Away
Okay okay these arent D.O.D, but this was the closest drugstore dupe that I could
find in my collection. The One That Got Away is more of a pinky-red with shimmer in
it compared to the deep maroon red in Buy Me a Drink. Both have an amazing consistancy
& were super easy to apply. Although when u take off The One That Got Away because
of the shimmer & pigmentation it will stain your fingers!! Not a D.O.D but pretty close!

OPI Not Like The Movies VS WNW Gray's Anatomy

Yet again I started off with one coat of my OPI Nail Envy Original.
On my pointer & middle finger I did three coats of Grays Anatomy.
& on my Middle, Pinkie & Thumb I did three coats of  Not Like The Movies.
These polishes are one of those 'ugly pretty' colors in my opinion. They are olive
green, pink duo chromes with a hint of gray.Not like the Movies Has teeenyy tiny
pewter gray micro glitters which just adds a little extra shimmer to the polish which
is always good in my books! Gray's Anatomy doesnt have the best application, it
was very hard to not get brush strokes & brush strokes drive me nuttttsssoooo.
They are definately very unique colors, becides these two brands I have personally
never seen anything like these before. Becides the little micro glitters in Not Like The
Movies they are definately D.O.D

So if you missed out on the Katy Perry OPI collection I hope this post
helped you out if you have been looking for a dupe of any of those colours.
Also correct me if im wrong but I am prettttttttttttty sure that the WNW &
Sally Hansen polishes werent LE & that they are all part of their permanent
line. When it comes down to it OPI costs around 9-12 a bottle & WNW
& Sally Hansen range from 2-4 dollars & like I said before gives u an extra
few dollars to spend towards another polish. I definately think the fact that
drugstore is so affordable, its definately the way to go!
