I recently paid a rather obscene price to get myself this bottle of Enchanted Polish Austin Powers. I knew from the moment I saw it last year some time, that should I ever see someone selling their bottle, I would have to get it. I don't have any regrets, because it's certainly is a magical gold holographic polish, and when it comes to gold polish, I just can't help myself buying them. But it was only after I had this little beauty in my hand that it looked really similar to another polish I had, in fact, dupe worthy similar. But lets first look at EP AP.
Enchanted Polish Austin Powers is a gold holographic polish that has gold flecks and small copper hex glitters. You can wear it alone as I did and it is opaque in two coats, you can also layer it over anything. You can see it layered over black at the Swatchaholic. Ah-maze-ing!.
OK, now it's time to check out the dupe. This is Jade Holographico Irresistivel, which I purchased from Ninja Polish for just US$7 (just a tad under what I paid for EP AP). It's a linear holographic polish with gold and copper glass flecks.
Want some side by side comparisons? OK. As you can see the colour on these two polish is nearly identical. I say nearly, because when you look a the photo in the shade, you can see that Austin Powers is slightly yellower and Jade Irresistivel leans pinker. And while Irresistivel doesn't have the copper glitters, it does have some copper flakes that give that multi toned gold appearance. The holo flame in both polishes is indistinguishable to my eyes.
So what you you guys think? Does this look like a pretty damn good dupe of one of the most expensive indie polishes going around at the moment? And to think it's only $7! The other thing that cracks me up is that the Jade polish only has a review rating of one and a half stars out of five on the Ninja polish site! I think this just goes to show how a brand name around a polish generates the hype.
You know I've even googled "Enchanted Polish Austin Powers Dupe" many times before hoping to find a dupe of this polish. I wonder why no one ever spotted this dupe pair before!
