Nail vs. Nail: Chanel Nuit de Russie


While drugstore hopping, I found not one, but TWO colors comparable to Chanel Nuit de Russie, from winter 2008's Moscou collection. I present to you, Sinful Colors What's Your Name and Nicole by OPI Midnight Madness.

I do like Nicole's range of colors but I hate the price. It irks me to pay $6.99 for it, especially when I can get China Glaze or OPI online for 3-4 dollars. Also, my local stores suck and rarely carry any unique colors, with the exception of Valentine's Day when my local Wal-Mart stepped it up and had a LE Nicole stand. I missed out on Dream Maker, a sheer glittery pink but picked up Sinful Colors' Glass Pink instead. Sinful Colors is an underrated gem of the drugstore nail polish world and cheap: $1.99 each! Even if a color sucks, I won't feel too guilty (unlike certain Chanels I have bought in the past).


Chanel Nuit de Russie is on the ring fingernail. All three polishes are black-based with fine blue glitter. Nuit de Russie is in the mid-range when it comes to glitter density. The glitter is duochrome and changes from blue to green.


Nicole by OPI Midnight Madness is on the middle fingernail. I find it to be the least alike of the three due to the glitter color, which lacks the blue-to-green duochrome color that the other two possess. Midnight Madness is what I hoped Zoya Kotori would be like. It also has the densest glitter.


Sinful Colors What's Your Name is on the index fingernail. It is the darkest of the three but has the largest and the least dense glitter particles. This is my personal favorite; I'm very surprised by the quality of this polish.

All three colors are three-coaters with great formulas and application. I don't remember the exact date, but I think the Moscou collection was pulled around February. I don't recommend looking for it on Satan's Little Online Shop because I've seen prices as high as $55. Midnight Madness is probably on its way to DC land like Nuit de Russie because I picked it up half-price at Target. (I blame Brooke at Getcha Nails Did for this! I saw her off-the-wagon haul and noticed Nicoles on clearance!) As for What's Your Name, you should be able to pick this up at your local Walgreens. $50, $3.30 or $1.99? The choice is yours!

lol - hey, think of it as a warning to run and get yours, which you did. So I think that blame should be a thanks instead, lol!!!

I also have that sinful one, and I really like it.

The Asian Girl said...

Brooke--LMAO, thank you! I needed some more Nicoles anyway :P I think it's the best Sinful I have, too!

Mary said...

Those are very close in color. I love the Nicole one, especially.

Lucy said...

Very nice comparisons. I'll look for the Sinful Colors thank you.

wixology said...

Just an FYI-
Nicole had another black blue out in the same collection that DOES have the duochrome flash in the glitter.

It's called "Blues In The Night" and I clearly remember comparing the two, then choosing the one I did due to the duochrome snazziness.

HTH!

dobbeltdørroofing contractors torontoFollowing the beacon of Auralia’s colors and the footsteps of a mysterious dream-creature, King Cal-raven has discovered a destination for his weary crowd of refugees. It’s a city only imagined in legendary tales. And it gives him hope to establish New Abascar. But when Cal-raven is waylaid by fortune hunters, his people become vulnerable to a danger more powerful than the prowling beastmen––House Bel Amica. In this oceanside kingdom of wealth, enchantment, and beauty, deceitful Seers are all too eager to ensnare House Abascar’s wandering throng. Even worse, the Bel Amicans have discovered Auralia’s colors, and are twisting a language of faith into a lie of corruption and control. If there is any hope for the people of Abascar, it lies in the courage of Cyndere, daughter of Bel Amica’s queen; the strength of Jordam the beastman; and the fiery gifts of the ale boy, who is devising a rescue for prisoners of the savage Cent Regus beastmen. As his faith suffers one devastating blow after another, Cal-raven’s journey is a perilous climb from despair to a faint gleam of hope––the vision he sees in Auralia’s colors.

Noticing these things, I rode over a short causeway to the house. A servant in waiting took my horse, and I entered the Gothic archway of the hall. A valet, of stealthy step, thence conducted me, in silence, through many dark and intricate passages in my progress to the studio of his master. Much that I encountered on the way contributed, I know not how, to heighten the vague sentiments of which I have already spoken.

However, it has retained many broad characteristics and with the exception of the short-lived Second Republic of South Korea, the country has always had a presidential system with an independent chief executive.

The advent of trucks and railways where there had previously only been buffalo and carts, telegraph systems, and more coordinated distribution systems under the colonial government all contributed to famine elimination in Java, and in turn, population growth. There were no significant famines in Java from the 1840s through to the Japanese occupation in the 1940s.[18] Ethnological factors are also thought to have contributed to the increase in population.

On the morning of 21 June, the British fleet left Scapa Flow to conduct training maneuvers, and at 11:20 Reuter transmitted the order to his ships.[76] Out of the interned fleet, only one battleship, Baden, three light cruisers, and eighteen destroyers were saved from sinking by the British harbor personnel. The Royal Navy, initially opposed to salvage operations, decided to allow private firms to attempt to raise the vessels for scrapping.[79] A company founded by Ernest Cox handled most of the salvage operations, including those of the deepest vessels raised.

The Dey was forced to sign the Barbary treaties, while the technological advance of U.S., British and French armies overwhelmed the pirates' expertise at naval warfare. The name of "Algeria" itself came from the French: following the conquest under the July monarchy, the Algerian territories, disputed with the Ottoman Empire, were first named "French possessions in North Africa" before being called "Algeria" by Maréchal Général le Duc de Dalmatie in 1839.
