For cataloguing nail polish dupes

Here’s a first dupe post: dupes of Zoya Charla.  Here, I have Essence Colour & Go in Choose Me!, Wet ‘n’ Wild Fast Dry in Teal of Fortune, and Sinful Colors Kissy.  (Other dupes of this color include OPI Catch Me In Your Net, Orly Halley’s Comet, NYX Girls Sea of Cortez, and Jesse’s Girl Glee.  If you know more, let me know!)

They look nearly identical while posing outside in the 90-plus degree heat.  On swatch sticks, however, there are some slight differences:

Essence Choose Me! on the left, Wet ‘n’ Wild Teal of Fortune in the center, and Sinful Colors Kissy on the right.  Each are with two coats.

I was surprised to notice that, despite the Teal-y name, Teal of Fortune was the least green of the bunch.  Kissy has a deeper pigment than the others, and Choose Me!  is ever so slightly less opaque.  My personal favorite is Sinful Colors Kissy, although I would warn that it did leave slight stains on the edges of my nails.  I assume it stained where I had missed base coat.

Edit: JulieG Mermaid’s Tale is also a Charla dupe. Props to Roxanne Lee Tornyi for this info! She has also provided me a photo of Jesse’s Girl Glee and Zoya Charla, both in the bottle and on nubbined swatch sticks (two coats):

Also, if you would like to contribute to this blog in any way, let me know.  Maybe you want to make a guest post.  Perhaps you’d prefer to cross-promote by sharing a dupe-alert post on your own blog.  Even a contribution of dupe photos (maybe you have other Charla dupes!) would be useful.  Drop me a comment!
