Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a good weekend. Today I have a polish comparison to show you for Deborah Lippmann’s Daytripper. I think that this is a great colour for the spring and summer; it’s so bright and fresh. But I understand that $20 plus for a nail polish is not for everyone so I wanted to try to find a suitable dupe for all of you.
I searched high and low for a colour that could compare and it was really hard. I thought Sally Hansen Tutti Frutti would have worked, but it was too pink. I thought Revlon ColorStay Marmalade would work but that was too orange. I finally found something when I came across American Apparel Pink Ladies.
On my nails I have 2 coats of American Apparel Pink Ladies and 3 coats of Deborah Lippmann Daytripper.
Pinky to Index – Daytripper, Pink Ladies, Daytripper, Pink Ladies:
The formula on these was very different. Daytripper was much more of a sheer jelly/creme where Pink Ladies had a thick creme formula. That was mainly the reason I needed to use 3 coats for Daytripper; I tried to build it up to be opaque. While there is a slight difference in the pictures in real life there is no difference in colour.
I bought Daytripper at Holt Renfrew for $20 and I bought Pink Ladies for 3 for $18.
