At one point, I was on a hunt for a blue version of the popular dusty purples that were released a couple years ago; like Sephora by OPI’s Metro Chic. I got recommendations from the MakeupAlley Nail Board to look at Zoya – Kelly, so I bought that. Then one day I was strolling through Sephora, and spot Sephora by OPI – Don’t Break A Leg Warmer, so I grabbed that. Most recently I was at Sally Beauty Supply, and my eyes landed on Nina Ultra Pro – Ink-ling; so obviously I grabbed that to.

Funny enough, I never realized that these three polishes were similar (especially not while I was purchasing them). It wasn’t until I was doing a mani of Nina Ultra Pro – Ink-ling, that I thought “Wait… I think I have some dupes for this.” So now, I have 3 polishes, that are all similar… and people wonder how I got to 400 polishes in my collection!

Here is a pic of my Nina Ultra Pro – Ink-ling mani:

I apologize for the blurry pic. I messed up some settings on my camera.

Looking at the flash pic, it almost looks like Zoya – Kelly pulls purple, while Sephora by OPI – Break a Leg-Warmer almost pulls a bit green. At the end of the day, they are all a dusty blue, but they are not exact dupes. They are close, and you probably don’t need all three, unless you were on a hunt for a dusty blue (like me). I think my favourite is Nina Ultra Pro – Ink-ling. The only downfall, was it did chip pretty quickly (within one day).

Be on the lookout for some upcoming posts, including my first post since I went nail file happy (I now have rounded off tips), and a very special post from our first Twitter request!
