Before we get started with today’s post- don’t forget to check out my memorial day indie nail polish sale list before you get started with your weekend shopping!
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: Colores De Carol Amethyst vs. Fair Maiden Polish Merry Plum Berry And Bright!
Colores De Carol Amethyst was originally reviewed here and Fair Maiden Polish Merry Plum Berry And Bright is originally from the Baby It’s Cold Outside collection. Photo shows three coats of each polish & Out The Door top coat. Colores De Carol Amethyst is on the pinkie & middle finger and Merry Plum Berry And Bright is on the ring and index. Of course, being a purple, they already look quite different in the bottle shot on camera than they do in person.
Verdict: Both have incredible, thick-in-a-good-way (stays where you put it but still easy to apply) formula. MPBAB is just a touch darker on the nail, but the base color is very similar. It also has that little bit of a gold flash that Amethyst does not, and Amethyst has the blue bits that MPBAB does not. Therefore, I would say that these two are NOT dupes but that if you liked one, you would probably like the other!
