SpaRitual Conglomerate Nail Lacquer

SpaRitual Conglomerate Nail Lacquer ($10.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “charcoal rock glitter infused with rhyolite.” This has a murky gray base with olive green shimmer and circular black and light gray flecks. It’s the mixture of shimmer and glitter that makes this unlike other polish I own. I don’t even know of what I could mix that would yield this result, even if I layered products. I’d love to hear any possible dupes if you’ve come across anything!

Chanel Extatique Rouge Allure Lipstick

Chanel Extatique Rouge Allure Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.12 oz.) is bright fuchsia pink with iridescent fuchsia-pink shimmer. It’s almost as bright applied to lips as it appears in the tube. The finish is fairly frosty. Le Metier de Beaute Paris is darker, more magenta. MAC Pink Pigeon is much cooler-toned and doesn’t have shimmer. NYX Pink Lyric is similar but doesn’t have shimmer. MAC Show Orchid is more intense, slightly darker. Illamasqua Welt is pinker.

Guerlain Avarice Rouge G L’Extrait

Guerlain Avarice Rouge G L’Extrait ($48.00 for 0.20 oz.) is described as “beige.” It’s a warm rose with a hint of beige-brown in it. It’s neutral, but there’s a healthy dose of pink in the color. Again my complexion, it almost reads as a subdued coral. Cle de Peau Comtesse de Cayla is lighter and shimmery. MAC So Vain is lighter and pinker. Guerlain Jicky is similar but much sheerer. MAC Spice is browner. Guerlani Galante is darker, redder.

China Glaze No Plain Jane Nail Lacquer

China Glaze No Plain Jane Nail Lacquer ($6.99 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as “lavish lavender-pink.” It’s a red-toned medium-dark purple with darker purple shimmer and a slightly metallic finish. I wasn’t able to see any shift with this one–it’s a shimmery purple but not much else. Oddly enough, I couldn’t think of a dupe! Barielle Passion Pirouette was the only color that came close, but it’s pinker.

Essie Blue Rhapsody Nail Lacquer

Essie Blue Rhapsody Nail Lacquer ($8.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as a “jazzy blue metallic.” It’s a subdued bluish-silver with a frosted, metallic finish. The dry down is a shiny matte; it has a flat look, but it’s not truly matte and there’s a sheen there. Out of the blue nail polishes I’ve reviewed, I couldn’t find or think of a dupe.
