Welcome to a new feature here at Gettin' Nailed: The Nail vs. Nail series!
Ever buy a polish then realize you have one that might as well be its twin? Isn't it, well, frustrating?! And it can get expensive! (Example: Chanel Or de Russie vs. China Glaze Wagon Trail. Not exact, but it still is $30!)
While dupes can be frustrating, I'm always fascinated to see subtle differences between similar polishes. The average nail fanatic can spot the differences, but to the untrained eye, it all looks the same. My poor, deluded baby sister still insists I have many of the same colors...but she doesn't know better.
Tonight's main event are two recently acquired polishes: Hard Candy Trailer Trash and Zoya Trixie.
In the bottle picture above, they look very similar: silver metallic glitter. However, out of the bottle:
Thumb: Trailer Trash (left) Trixie, (right), Trixie (index and middle), Trailer Trash (ring and pinky) Note: Thanks Nessa!
Trailer Trash is more muted; I think it looks a lot like Cover Girl Mattalic Triple Platinum minus the matte finish. Trixie, however: WOW! I love the foil finish, it definitely pops out and grabs you by the throat. I have to say, my favorite is Trixie...Trailer Trash would've had a better chance if it had the jelly ring included with it :P
