Comparison swatches: Chanel 557 Morning Rose from the Fleurs d’Ete collection and Catrice 480 Miss Piggy Reloaded

Comparison Chanel Electric Fleurs d’Ete Summer 2011 557 Morning Rose and Catrice 480 Miss Piggy Reloaded swatch swatches nail polish

Hi everyone and TGIF!
Boo boo is doing better but I hope it hurries up with healing because my nails more than ever need a new manicure. I better wait at least till tomorrow or Sunday though because only the thought of nail polish remover on a not healed boo boo makes me cringe.. eek! :o

But enough of boo boo. :D
Before I had Chanel Morning Rose in my hands I saw Catrice Miss Piggy Reloaded in a drugstore and immediately thought of Morning Rose. It looked lighter than the swatches I had seen of Morning Rose but I picked it up to compare both nail polishes when my bottle of Morning Rose arrives.
Miss Piggy Reloaded is no dupe for Morning Rose but if you are looking for a lighter version of Morning Rose you might want to pick it up:

Compared to Morning Rose Miss Piggy Reloaded is a lighter and also a less yellow toned pink. The glass flecks in Miss Piggy Reloaded look smaller and almost multi-colored while the glass flecks in Chanel’s Morning Rose are larger and gold. Also Morning Rose contains more glass flecks.
The formula and application of both are comparable. Both needed three coats for an opaque look.

Do you also have both Morning Rose and Miss Piggy Reloaded? Which one is your favorite?

Thanks for looking! ♥ :)

  1. Thank you for the comparison! I love your blog and your nails are gorgeous!

    I have been looking for a dupe (Morning Rose) for days now! I have come across a few that, on my computer monitor, are looking pretty similar. My only problem is finding that color pink with the gold shimmer instead of silver.

    But from what I have seen here are some other very similar colors, if you have them maybe you could do a dupe test?

    For Chanel Morning Rose-

    *China Glaze “Naked” (This one is a tad darker than MR with silver shimmer)

    *Zoya “Cassi” (I swear this one looks so similar online, not sure about in person since I don’t have the two to compare. The Zoya has much more shimmer and it’s silver instead of gold)

    *China Glaze Pink Rox-e (which is pretty much a dupe of Zoya’s Cassi)

    I hope this helps anyone looking for a dupe and hopefully you’ll read this and have one or two of these so you can test them. I would love you forever!!!
