Welcome to Dupe or No Dupe, the series where I pull out colors from my collection that look the same in the bottle and we find out if they’re the same….or just similar? Up today: OPI Hey Baby vs. NARS Schiap!
Photo shows 2 coats of each polish & Out The Door Top coat. Nars Schiap is on the pinkie & middle finger and OPI Hey Baby is on the ring and index.
Verdict: Colorwise, these are almost exact dupes but I can spot a very slight difference- Schiap is just a shade brighter than Hey Baby. Hey Baby had a nicer formula in terms of consistency (Schiap was a bit on the watery side) but was still a little streaky at two coats and probably would have needed a third to be completely even. I wouldn’t call these exact dupes but I think if you have one of these in your collection, they aren’t different enough to own the other.
What do you think about this comparison? Let me know in the comments!
