I would love to have a really clever opening for this blog post, but I am so distracted by how pretty this nail polish is. So, straight to the swatches!

bottle pic (wow! look at that holo!)
We actually had some awesome weather in Toronto last week so I was able to grab some outdoor pics. You may notice I only have 3 fingers in the outdoor pic. That’s because this polish chipped on my index finger in about a day. Disappointing, but I still love the colour.
Lacquer Look-a-Likes: Ludurana Aurora Boreal Notavel vs. Glitter Gal 10 to Midnight
I cannot take credit for identifying this Lacquer Look-a-Like. This was totally Lauren’s catch, and it was pretty close when you look at the bottles. It really could have gone either way. It wasn’t until I did some swatches that I was able to figure out if they were dupes or not. Here is the evidence:
Top: Ludurana Aurora Boreal – Notavel Bottom: Glitter Gal – 10 to Midnight
While both polishes have noticeable holo (no hidden holo here!), Notavel is more visible. Also, 10 to Midnight is also a few shades darker. Still part of the grey family, but a bit closer to black.
Are these Lacquer Look-a-Likes? Nope. Close, but no cigar here. Both are gorgeous, and close in price, so whichever you pick, you have a winner!
