OPI Fly dupes?

When I saw the promo photos for the OPI Nicki Minaj collection, I knew I was skipping it. Not a fan of shatters (‘Super Bass Shatter’), nor glitters/shimmers (‘Metallic 4 Life’ and ‘Save Me’), nor this green (‘Did It On Em’). I was interested in ‘Pink Friday’ and ‘Fly’. But Im quite sure that ‘Pink Friday’ is dupable. Whereas for ‘Fly’, I think it is a less common shade. But I know I have something similar.

And it is the Rainbow AM28.

Yes? No?

(I had to chip off my nails for sports, so only thumb swatches for now.)

Lets take a closer look side by side.

2 layers for each.
OPI Fly dries to a glossier finish while Rainbow AM28 to a more musky finish. Both dries in a short time.

It is soooooooo hard capturing the true teal colour, so I am giving you colour swatches on html.

This is OPI Fly.                                     This is Rainbow AM28.

Seriously, is there any different? But I have to admit, OPI Fly is prettier but you dont need both. If you are on a budget or just wants a dupe, get Rainbow AM28 ($2/$2.50. You can get them at the old shop book shop, or even those budget beauty stores such as Ta Zhiang. Singapore only!)

Gave another go at nude polish, especially after reading Eileen‘s post on OPI Samoan Sand.

Application was smooth and easy. I used only 2 coats for the photos.

This is by far the nicest nude polish I’ve used, not that I have used alot. But I’m still not a nude polish fan.. :s

Seems like most people are still very interested in the shattering polishes, which I dont get the hype, because I feel like it looks like hard boiled egg shells.. :X It is just me. It is just me. Now dont you get offended!   

 
 

 

Did a google for swatches and, wow I may say.
►Skull & Glossbones + ►Steady As She Rose = bridal nails. No?

►Sparrow Me The Drama and ►Planks A Lot seems to be easily dupe-able.. (But, I will def order these 2. You will understand when you see my polishes collection. I seems to have ALMOST all purples and hot/pastal pinks. :/)
►Stranger Tides – I think people who like OPI Tickle my France-y will like this? I dont know. Im not appealed. Maybe when I see it in person?
►Mermaid’s tears – A greener China Glaze Audrey, no? NICE. And Mermaid? It is really calling out for me..

Came across these 4 shades and I thought that Over The Taupe were quite alike to You Dont Know Jacques, and Tickle my France-y was close to Barefoot In Barcelona.

So lets compare them!

Very close shade of browns. I really really do not understand the hype on YDKJ. 😦 I guess Im not a brown person for nails.

Totally different! It is either a hit or miss for nudes depending on your skintone. I do like both of the above, but I dont see myself using them often.

Just a random swatch when I was packing my room yesterday.

I cannot believe how many OPIs I have since 2 months ago. This is very bad.

Will be back with more swatches!
