Hello Polish Addicts (=
Today I have a find to share, the other day while I was in Shoppers Drug Mart (I ALWAYS check the clearance bin & shelves) I came across a bunch of Essie "Shine of the Times" Polishes on clearance for 4.00$. Of course I had to pick it up to add it to my collection & when I got home I shared the news with a facebook group for polish addicts that I am involved in. And you will never believe what I was told Essie is discontinuing "Shine of the Times"!!! So if I were you I run & pick up a one or a back up even. I picked up another one today. ANYWAYS... me & my rambling... So when I got home I painted all my nails black & swatched all 9 flakies I own to see if I have any dupes. & wouldn't you know it I did, well of course you'd know that's why your here because I found a dupe. LOL.
So here it is...
INGLOT in "# 202" VS. ESSIE in "SHINE OF THE TIMES"
Their identical in appearance same flakie size & their both super this & easy to apply. wait for it....
wait for it....
There is just THREE THINGS that are DIFFERENT .
#1 Quantity: Inglot contains 8 ml (Which is the full size) VS. Essie contains 13.5 ml
#2 Price: Inglot costs 10.00$ VS. Essie 10.99$
#3 Availability: Inglot is much much harder to get VS. Essie available at Drug stores & Walmart ect.
So from looking at the comparisons I believe Essie "Shine of the Times" takes the win. However you might want to pick yours up A.S.A.P before it gone.
