Welcome to another edition of The Look for Less! Since I have so many polishes in my collection, there are times that I’ll come home with a polish and look at others in my collection and realize that I already have something similar. That happened to me this past fall when I bought Butter London “Queen Vic.” I was absolutely obsessed with the berry purple shade, until I realized that I already had something similar.
Keep reading to see if they really are dupes!
As you can see, they aren’t dupes. But they’re pretty dang close! So close that I don’t think you need both. Formula wise, these polishes are pretty identical. They are almost opaque with 1 coat, but do require 2. They both dry really quickly and dry to a really glossy finish.
Which one do I like better? Its a toss up! Since the formulas are pretty much the same its all a question of color. Queen Vic is slightly more purple and berry toned, and slightly lighter. Sofia is a little darker and has more red to it. I like both, but I don’t need both.
Which do you prefer? Do you have either of these?
