Champagne taste….lemonade money

June 1, 2010

If, like me, you’re a sucker for any new limited edition Chanel nail polish but aren’t a fan of the hefty price tag, you’ve probably had a scout around Boots for a dupe for their sold out Nouvelle Vague which is a beautiful turquoise colour perfect for Summer.

Chanel Nouvelle Vague #527

Well here’s what I picked up while browsing around Superdrug in London at the weekend…

NAILED Polish, Turquoise

Sleek Makeup’s ‘Nailed’ Polish in Turquoise a fraction of the Chanel price (I’ve seen them going on eBay for up to forty quid!) at only £3.49/€3.99.  After trying it out, although I love the colour and finish, I don’t think it’s the perfect alternative….it’s a little too turquoise and maybe not minty enough.  Still a great polish though and I’d recommend Sleek Makeup’s website- they’ll deliver to UK for £2.95 and Ireland for €6.  Another good dupe, but not quite good enough is Rimmel’s 60 Second Nail Polish in Sky High 825, which is a bit too green and definitely too dark.

The search continues……..

Let me know if you you’ve found the perfect lemonade money version of this fab colour!
