Birthday Nails - Dupe of a Dupe

Currently listening to: This Boy by James Morrison

Good morning girls!

Today is my birthday so I thought I'd try one of my new Tony Moly polishes for my birthday manicure :-)


 Out of the three colours I ordered (blue, pink and purple), this is probably the one I was most excited about because from the images I'd seen, it looked like a dupe of Revlon Whimsical, which is in turn a dupe for Deborah Lippmann Glitter in the Air but sadly not available in the UK.


I don't own either of those polishes so I can't tell you how this polish compares but that doesn't matter; I love this one.

 

The polish is sheer so I layered it over two coats of Barry M Blue Moon instead of experimenting to see how many coats would be required to make it opaque.


What do you think of this polish girls?  Do you think it is a good dupe?

Bye for now,
Laura

    happy birthday to you,
    happy birthday dear Laura,
    happy birthday to you!
    I own Whimsical, and this polish looks exactly like it! It looks beautiful on you, very flawless application <3 I wouldn't call it a dupe, it looks Deborah Lippmann (or Revlon) legit :D
