think we kissed but i forgot

Here is something I discovered that I wish I realized about 3 days ago when I dropped $10 on this polish.

The new Katy Perry for OPI blue shade, Last Friday Night, has a near-dupe.
And it is 8 dollars cheaper. And I own it already.


Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Shooting Star.
Here are the swatches next to each other.


As you can see there is more glitter in Last Friday Night, but that might also be due to the fact that in these swatches LFN is 4 coats and SS is only 3, but I thought the base color matched after this many coats.
So close that it wouldn't be noticeable to the non-polish-obsessed eye.

Dying for some Katy Perry polish but not into the pricetag? Go to Walmart instead and save money.

  1. That is funny that you pointed out that dupe... because Teenage Dream (the pink glitter) has a dupe too... Sally Hansen Extreme wear- Strobe Light

  4. it's okay because just having the katy perry ones is satisfying, regardless if you could get the same one cheaper :P

  5. I know what you mean about it being satisfying- I don't own either of those polishes, but I feel the same way with China Glaze's Ruby Pumps and Sally Hansen's Red Carpet :) Gotta have 'em both, just because ;p

  7. I'm pretty sure that Sinful Colors in "Hottie" is nearly identical.
