Candy Shop is a sought after polish by Deborah Lippmann. A lot of people are also looking for it's dupe by Claire's Cosmetics called Candy Shop as well. You can pick up Debrorah Lippmann's Candy Shop, if you find it, for any where from $16-$24 depending on where you buy it from. The Claire's Dupe is a very good match from what I've read and only cost $5! Plus with Claire's they usually have buy one get one 1/2 off. Which is even better ;-)
This is what Deborah Lippmann Candy Shop looks like.
I got this photo from Barney's website. I do not have this polish.
Here's what Claire's Candy Shop looks like:
This polish is very cutesy. It has a pink base with rainbow glitter and rainbow hex throughout. With one coat you are able to get great coverage and lots of glitter. The only thing with using one coat is that you will still see the VNL (visible nail line). Pictures below show one coat:
With the addition of the second coat, you are able to get more glittery goodness and no VNL. I think I could've done one more coat though. What do you think? Check out the second coat:
I also wanted to show the LOVE in this bottle:
What do you think of dupes? Do you think higher end brands have the best products?
