One of the swatchy-ladies working with me on this project is Janna, who runs The Girlie Tomboy. The Girlie Tomboy is a Facebook blog that is, as she writes in the About section,
A smorgasbord of nail related goodies.
Yep, I like that!
And even better, to a dupe-obsessed chicky?! She has a few comparisons on her blog, too.
- Zoya Akyra and Essie Trophy Wife
- Julep Kate and Orly Au Champagne
- Zoya Rekha and Zoya Sooki
- Zoya Bevin and OPI Mermaid Tears
- Cult Nails Iconic and Barielle Elle’s Spell
- Sinful Colors Kissy and Zoya Charla (you can see more Charla dupes in a Clone Attack post right here).
Wanna see her comparison photos? Then come over here!
Several of these posts have either inspired upcoming Clone Attack posts for this blog, or they are just super-reminiscent of what is to come. YEA!
Today I have some swatches from Sophie over at Fresh Air and Fashion . Sophie is one of sixty-three ladies who are agreeing to swatch polishes on sticks and mail them back to me for this big, collaborative dupe-finding mission! By the way: the first shipment of one hundred swatch sticks just went out to fifteen ladies this very morning. Pins and needles!
Sophie has developed a delightful post comparing three classy neutral cremes: Zoya Pandora, Julep Pippa, and Zoya Avery (seen below). This post also provides side-by-side stick swatches comparing Julep Daphne, Zoya Wednesday, and China Glaze For Audrey.

Pandora reminds me a bit of my favorite neutral: OPI Dulce de Leche. Very pretty, don’t you think?
I’d love to share our newest addition to the blogroll, The Polish Jinx! This blog is run by Shayna, who has made several informative and useful dupe comparison posts in the past.
Here are a few of them:
The Polish Jinx: The Polish Jinx: HEAD TO HEAD MATCH – Girly Bits Shift Happens VS Clarins 230
The Polish Jinx: Deborah Lippmann Dont Tell Mama VS Illamasqua Viridian
The Polish Jinx: How Do You Orange?

I hope that everyone is looking forward to what’s coming up for Lacquer Clones! As of now, we have plans underway to compile swatch sticks comparing blacks, whites, reds, blues, light aquamarines/teals/light blues, medium teals, corals, and several other shades. All in all, we have sixty-five ladies in Facebook’s Lacquer Clones Swatching group offering to swatch shades from their collections and send them back to me. Nearly 200 colors have been offered so far!
