|OPI It's My Year - Orly Oui - Orly Ingenue - Zoya Faye|
One coat polish ...
The first two are obviously not close to the others. The last two are still looking pretty spot on.
So OPI IMY and Orly Oui are totally different - they have that same pretty metallic gold sparkly but OPI IMY is more pink/mauve and Orly Oui is more purple. The other two though need a closer look.
Orly Ingenue may be a touch more brown and a touch more sparkly, but I keep moving my hand around and I really can't tell a difference. Definitely not from an arm's length away.
They all dried in about the same time, I didn't use a topcoat for these pictures. Formula was good on all of them. OPI seemed to have the best coverage without the thickness. Orly seemed to be thicker, and Zoya was in the middle, but I still liked the formula. You can tell in the pictures, especially with all four nails, that the middle two fingers have thicker polish - I think that might just be Orly. Not a big deal and I wouldn't have noticed except I had different polishes on my nails all at once.
So a winner between the dupes? Zoya Faye, becuase it has a better formula. It does, however, retail for $8.00, while Orly you can find for less online ($6.50-ish) and I got mine on sale at Sally's for $3.99!
Does anyone else own any of these? Any other dupes I should know about so I can stop buying repeats of the same colors?
