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.

Guerlain Wulong Meteorites Pressed Powder

Guerlain Wulong Meteorites Pressed Powder ($170.00 for 0.26 oz.) is really meant to be the creme de la creme of luxury compacts and powders. This holiday’s refillable compact is a black lacquered metal case that has a lot of heft–the whole compact clocks in at just under 5 oz. The top of the compact is raised with Guerlain’s signature rosette, and the interior of the rosette is made up of gold mother-of-pearl.

Butter London Dodgy Barnett Nail Lacquer

Butter London Dodgy Barnett Nail Lacquer ($14.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “highly holographic lacquer in a classic shade that blurs the line between grey and silver.” It looks like a soft, paled silver-gray shimmer suspended in a clear base, but it definitely has holographic shimmer as soon as the light catches it. The particles aren’t chunky or gritty, like glitter, but they’re a bit larger than shimmer. Milani HD is comparable–the particles are just larger and it has a more silver coloring.
