What?! I'm back AGAIN?! Yeah. I have a quick comparison for you, between Nails Inc Leather Effect in noho (black), and Seventeen Textured Polish in Black that I showed you yesterday. I know some people have been wondering whether or not they are dupes, and as the Nails Inc is around 5 times the price (although you do get those darling little skulls), I reckon a lot of people would be interested to know!
I know it sounds bad, but I kind of wanted to get this out of the way, as I really need to crack on with the Flip Flop February Challenge! This is my first comparison post though, and I must say it really does make me feel like a proper blogger! I don't have anything else in my collection that could be dupes (all I have is similar, which as we all know is completely different and totally necessary!) I get a little jealous of people who have an extensive enough collection to have dupes, and yet here I am comparing polishes that could both end up being massive in the UK this year!
Both bottles are 10ml of polish, both dry at approximately the same speed (pretty quickly!), both give full coverage in 2 coats, and they are both easy to apply.
|Lol both even have textured caps!|
However if you go for a very-close-up (no one should be getting this close to my nails lol) they aren't quite as different. Seventeen is on the left.
If your hands are at a normal distance, for example arm's length, the only way you can tell between them is that you can see a bit of shine coming from the Seventeen, and you can see it's not quite as uniform as the Nails Inc.
So, in conclusion, these are not dupes! However they are extremely similar. The Nails Inc seems to be a slightly better quality polish, but for the price, you would expect that! I love both of them. The Nails Inc has a lovely soft grain, but conversely, the Seventeen can handle a layer of topcoat!
I guess which one you should buy depends on you! If you are looking for a softer, finer, less textured version, then go for the Nails Inc. If you like a bit more texture, you like having your nails both matte or shiny, and/or you are on a budget, then I would definitely go for the Seventeen. It's really a case of personal preference! If I had to pick one, it would probably be Nails Inc. It just feels lovely to touch. However I am torn now that I've seen the Seventeen with topcoat!
Which of these would you pick?
