Unfortunately my head doesn’t agree with the smell of nail polish and nail polish remover right now so I couldn’t make a new manicure.
One thing I love to look at, besides manicures and nail polish swatches, are bottle comparisons so I thought I could take pictures of my taupe nail polishes and show them to you today. I love taupe nail polishes and I still have a few on my wishlist like OPI’s Over The Taupe and American Apparels’s Mouse. There is no such thing as enough taupes, right?
Let’s take a closer look especially at how Chanel’s Particulière compares to my other taupe nail polishes.
OPI – You Don’t Know Jacques, p2 – Rich&Royal, Chanel – Particulière,
Color Club – High Society, Essie – Chinchilly
In this bunch p2’s Rich&Royal is the closest color to Particulière though it isn’t a dead on dupe. Rich&Royal has almost the same lightness but it is less brown and more mauve than Particulière. Color Club’s High Society has the same undertone as Particulière but it is much lighter so it is not a dupe.
OPI – You Don’t Know Jacques, Chanel – Particulière,
Essie – Mink Muffs, Orly – Prince Charming
Essie’s Mink Muffs looks really close to Orly’s Prince Charming. Mink Muffs looks like it is just a tad more red while Prince Charming is a tad more yellow and a tad darker.
p2 – Rich&Royal, Chanel – Particulière, Color Club – High Society
Orly – Country Club Khaki, Essie – Chinchilly
Color Club’s High Society and Orly’s Country Club Khaki have almost the same lightness but High Society is much cooler toned. High Society looks like a franken of Country Club Khaki and Essie’s Chinchilly.
p2 – Rich&Royal, Chanel – Particulière
I am quite surprised how close p2’s Rich&Royal is to Chanel’s Particulière. I never would have thought that the closest color to Particulière in my stash would be from a German drugstore brand. While it isn’t a perfect dupe p2’s Rich&Royal is a great alternative and the best thing is: it was only 1,55 EUR.
I hope you find this post helpful. Thanks for looking and take care!
