OPI: Comparisons – Washington D.C. Collection

Posted on Jul 22, 2016

 

Hi again everyone! Today I actually have some comparisons  of the Washington D.C. Collection to share with you! I’m sure some of you are going to be very excited about this! I don’t always get the chance to do these so I’m really happy I was able to this time! Obviously, I don’t own every polish out there but I tried my best to find similar polishes or polishes I thought people would like to see compared. I hope you enjoy it!

Pale To The Chief is unique because it has that added silvery shimmer. I knew that I probably wouldn’t find a dupe but compared it with a bunch of polishes anyway!

  • Pointer: OPI Don’t Pretzel My Buttons (2 coats) – a tone darker and cooler
  • Middle: OPI Pale To The Chief (2 coats)
  • Ring: Zoya Taylor (2 coats) – darker and cooler
  • Pinkie: Deborah Lippmann Naked (3 coats) – warmer and more of a jelly formulation

  • Pointer: Essie Topless And Barefoot (2 coats) – lighter and pinker toned
  • Middle: OPI Pale To The Chief (2 coats)
  • Ring: Zoya Natasha (2 coats) – a touch darker
  • Pinkie: OPI Samoan Sand (3 coats) – slighly lighter and warmer toned

I was surprised to see that Never A Dulles Moment didn’t have a dupe in my collection but it has a sort of duskiness that none of my other yellows have. It reminds me of Clueless when Cher wears that yellow plaid outfit. So good!

  • Pointer: Butter London Cheeky Chops (2 coats) – much lighter and brighter
  • Middle: OPI Never A Dulles Moment (2 coats)
  • Ring: China Glaze Metro Pollen-tin (3 coats) – this is the closest but it still isn’t close. It’s more orangey toned.
  • Pinkie: OPI Towel Me About It (2 coats) – Much lighter but I wanted to slap it on for comparison purposes.

I had nothing similar to this either. I saw Beauty Geek compare it to OPI A Great Opera-tunity and I don’t know why I didn’t think of that one but I couldn’t find my bottle! Anyway, it seems like the closest but still no dupes!

  • Pointer: OPI Ginger Bells (2 coats) –  much darker
  • Middle: OPI Freedom Of Peach (2 coats)
  • Ring: OPI Is Mai Tai Crooked? (2 coats) – brighter and less brown-toned
  • Pinkie: CND Clay Canyon (3 coats) – more of nude tone and lighter

I thought I’d be able to find a dupe for Yank My Doodle but not in my stash!

  • Thumb: OPI Ginger Bells (2 coats) – more brown toned
  • Pointer: Sparitual Clay (2 coats) – close but it’s less muted than YMD
  • Middle: OPI Yank My Doodle (2 coats)
  • Ring: Zoya Natalie (3 coats) – in the bottle, this looked like an exact dupe but it’s closer to Clay than YMD and it’s more of a jelly formulation
  • Pinkie: OPI In Familiar Terra-tory (2 coats) – brighter and pinker toned.

This next one had some really close calls. I wouldn’t call them dupes but they are dang close.

  • Pointer: OPI Icebergers & Fries (2 coats) – Very close but it’s a touch darker. A normal person couldn’t tell
  • Middle: OPI Inside The Isabelletway (2 coats)
  • Ring: Zoya Dea (2 coats) – I thought this would be a dupe but nope!  It’s darker and cooler-toned
  • Pinkie: China Glaze Mohagany Magic (2 coats) – This is much yellower in comparison

Again, no dupes found for STFLON. I was surprised considering I love olive and army greens!

  • Pointer: China Glaze Don’t Get Derailed (2 coats) – darker and slightly more cool-toned
  • Middle: OPI Suzi – The First Lady Of Nails (2 coats)
  • Ring: OPI Uh Oh! Roll Down The Window! (2 coats) – lighter and warmer
  • Pinkie: Zoya Dree (2 coats) – lighter and more dusky

At first, in the bottle, I thought that SOTH was a purple toned gray-brown but I was so wrong once I put it on. I decided to compare it to some purples I thought of anyway just for kicks and in case I’m not the only crazy one.

  • Pointer: OPI I Sao Paulo Over There (2 coats) – same purple undertones but more gray than brown
  • Middle: OPI Squeaker Of The House (2 coats)
  • Ring: OPI I’m Feeling Sashy (2 coats) – much more purple
  • Pinkie: Deborah Lippmann Let’s Stay Together (2 coats) – more purple toned and darker

But here are the real and more likely comparisons for Squeaker Of The House…

  • Pointer: China Glaze Street Chic (2 coats) – slightly cooler toned and less purple undertones
  • Middle: OPI Squeaker Of The House (2 coats)
  • Ring: OPI Over The Taupe (2 coats) – lighter and cooler
  • Pinkie: Rescue Beauty Lounge Gelato Al Cioccolato (2 coats) – even lighter and cooler

These reddish pinks were all hard to compare and photograph. I was going cross-eyed trying to find dupes. They are all different but in such subtle ways!

  • Pointer: China Glaze Heli-Yum (2 coats) – close but it’s lighter and pinker
  • Middle: OPI Madam President (2 coats)
  • Ring: Deborah Lippmann The Heat Is On (2 coats) –is lighter and looks much more red in comparison
  • Pinkie: OPI Pen & Pink (2 coats) – same tone but a touch lighter and it has a jelly formulation

I mean, in reality, we could say all of these grays are dupes because non polish people would never be able to tell the difference  … they are extremely similar!

  • Pointer: China Glaze Out Like A Light (2 coats) – darker
  • Middle: “Liv” In The Moment (2 coats)
  • Ring: OPI Nein! Nein! Nein! Ok Fine! (2 coats) – very very close but maybe a touch darker and slight green undertone
  • Pinkie: Deborah Lippmann Stormy Weather (2 coats) – I’m going to say these are dupes.  If you wanted to get really technically it’s maybe lighter but that’s a reach

I almost didn’t post this comparison, it’s just so hard to tell in photos, they all look equally as dark but I promise you,  they are different.

  • Pointer: OPI Love Is Hot And Coal (2 coats) – I included this one because the base colors are pretty much exact, this just has added shimmer
  • Middle: OPI Shh… It’s Top Secret! (2 coats)
  • Ring: Habit Cosmetics Diabolique (2 coats) – a touch darker and warmer toned
  • Pinkie: Rescue Beauty Lounge Fortissimo (2 coats) – a little lighter and a touch warmer

I think  20 Candles On My Cake might be very similar but I no longer own it. :(

  • Pointer: OPI Just Be Claus (2 coats) – more purple, more cool-toned
  • Middle: OPI OPI By Popular Vote (2 coats)
  • Ring: LVX Cameo (2 coats) – darker and more red
  • Pinkie: KBShimmer Such A Vlad-Ass (2 coats) – darker and more red

Another one with no dupe in site. WeTF got such a dusky undertone and almost a pink tinge to it that made it hard to match.

  • Pointer: OPI Thank Glogg It’s Friday! (2 coats) – bases are similar which is why I wanted to show it but obviously this one has tons of shimmer
  • Middle: OPI We The Female (2 coats)
  • Ring: OPI Skyfall (2 coats) – this is the closest but it’s more brown-toned
  • Pinkie: Deborah Lippmann Jessa (3 coats) – this one is redder toned and warmer

Kerry Blossom was very close to quite a few polishes and I actually found a dupe I think!

  • Thumb 1: Pretty Serious Cosmetics Gloomy Kitty (2 coats) – dupe city man!  I found a true blue dupe I think! Even more so in person!
  • Thumb 2: OPI Get Cherried Away (2 coats) – warmer and more red-toned in comparison
  • Pointer: OPI In The Cable Car-pool Lane (2 coats) – warmer and redder toned
  • Middle: OPI Kerry Blossom (2 coats)
  • Ring: Pahlish Gingerbread Baker (2 coats) – this one is maybe a touch cooler toned but it’s hard to tell
  • Pinkie: Zoya Toni (2 coats) – close but it has a slight dusky tone and more redness

SOTL is so unique, it wasn’t quite like anything I had. Not a total green but also not teal. It’s in a class all its own.

  • Thumb: China Glaze Take A Hike (2 coats) – darker and duskier
  • Pointer: Illamasqua Kink (2 coats) – more green toned
  • Middle: OPI Stay Off The Lawn!! (2 coats)
  • Ring: Cirque Colors Tavern On The Teal (2 coats) – more blue toned
  • Pinkie: Powder Perfect Robin Hood (2 coats) – more green toned and brighter

Last up, CIA! These ones are all so similar as well. I think I could have worn this as a mani and people would be none the wiser that it was 4 different polishes! Still, not 100% dupes but dang close.

  • Pointer: CND Couture Covet (2 coats) – this is the closest one (although they are all close), it’s maybe slightly more blue toned
  • Middle: OPI CIA = Color Is Awesome (2 coats)
  • Ring: Rescue Beauty Lounge Teal (2 coats) – this one is a shade darker
  • Pinkie: OPI Ski Teal We Drop (2 coats) – slightly more blue toned

I hope this helped you with your selections. Like I said in yesterday’s post, this OPI collection is amazing and I’m still sticking to that even after finding a couple dupes here!
