Look for Less! Dupe Alert?

IMG_6262Back in the Fall, jelly finish polishes seemed to be really on trend.  Personally, I’ve been a fan of jelly finishes for a long time because you can do so many different manicures.  You can come up with some incredible layering combinations or you can wear them as normal and get super glossy finish.

Both of these polishes came out right around the same time.  Deborah Lippmann “Bad Blood” came out in the True Blood Trio, (which you can see here!) and Zoya “Katherine” (see it here!) came out in the Zoya Gloss collection.  I was really late on the bandwagon getting the Deborah Lippmann trio but when I opened it up I noticed that it looked very similar to Katherine.  I had to know just how similar they are …

You can tell with the first coat that they have the same level of sheerness as well as apply the same.  They both go on a little streaky but also show off the glossiness on the very first coat.

Yeah … these polishes don’t look anything alike! In the bottle they look very close but oh the nail they are much different.  The biggest surprise to me is the Deborah Lippmann.  Judging from the bottle, I thought it would be much darker on the nail.  But as the name suggests, it looks just like bad blood.  The formulas are identical, except the Deborah Lippmann is a tad less streaky on the final coat.

Which one wins for me? I prefer the Deborah Lippmann, just because its less streaky.  I absolutely love both colors, but I think I prefer the color of the Deborah Lippmann just a little bit more.

What do you think? Which one is your favorite? Do you have either of these?
