Okay, so I was going thru all my fall/winter colored polishes (putting them away for spring/summer) and I discovered I had Zoya "Pinta" and I had Diamond Cosmetics "Crushed Velvet". I realized both of them looked alike.
Later I finally got my hands on OPI "Sapphires In The Snow" thru a swap on MUA, and I said..."I've seen this color before?"...LOL! :)
Here they are...all 2 coats, no top coat, can you tell which, is which?
Yep..I'd say they are near dupes!
Even fuzzy they still look alike...are you tired of guessing?
Left to Right: OPI "Sapphires In The Snow", Zoya "Pinta", and Diamond Cosmetics "Crushed Velvet".
The formulas on all three were perfect. No issues, just perfect, near dupes! The OPI does lean just a tad bit more blue, a tad, but the difference is sooo sooo small! (almost unnoticeable)
Obviously the OPI is HTF, so if you have the Zoya or the Diamond Cosmetics, you are good to go. Obviously the Diamond Cosmetics is the best dupe, since it is cheaper at $2.50 per bottle versus Zoya's $8....but both are near dupes of the OPI! PERFECT!!
Oh and all 3 formulas dry SUPER SHINY! All pics have a base coat but NO TOPCOAT!
OPI, Zoya, Diamond Cosmetics, OPI.
I guess the reason I ended up buying this color 3 times, is because this is a great dark eggplant-blue based purple without being black...so pretty! I love it!
Do you have either of these beautiful cremes?
