Smackdown: Flakes

I've been going through my stash and I was suprised when I discovered I owned so many flake polishes. I was even more suprised to discover that a few were dupes for each other. Ahh the life of an addict.

They are from left to right (or top to bottom) Sally Hansen Hidden Treasure, Nubar 2010, Nfu-Oh 38 and GOSH Rainbow. As always, photos can be clicked for a larger image.

My conclusions - they are alike. So much alike that I suggest you pick one you can easily get your hands on and call it a day. Unless you are like me and like the hunt. I will say that the formula on the Nubar is better. It's thinner and you can put a few coats on without it building up and looking thick.

Awesome! I think I'll get the Nubar if it's all the same.

Oh, great comparison! Love it. I have two of the four, so I'm good haha.

Ping - The Nubar is a good choice!

Nicole - You are an addict too so of course you are good.

I think another similar one (although with less dense flakies) is CND Sugar Baby. Not sure how old it is but I found one at a beauty supply once.

what you need is also: Maybelline colorama “Sonic Sunset” or “Ruby RayS . then you will have a super complete flakie dupe collection =)

I need another flake polish like I need a hole in my head. Enabler - that's what you are!
