Welcome to a new series I am starting called The Look For Less. In this series I will be comparing a higher end item with either a dupe (or something very similar) of a less expensive item.
Last week I reviewed the new NARS Thakoon Collection and one of the colors, Lal Mirchi, stood out for me. However not only is it a bit expensive, but it happens to be the one only sold at their Bleecker Street store. Not easy to get. But I have you covered!
China Glaze Oh How Street It Is is from the 2009 Kicks collection, and is a very similar orange/red shade. Both are bright and have a creme finish. While Oh How Street It Is is a little thinner of a formula and you may need three coats, it’s very similar to Lal Mirchi. It’s a little more orange than orange/red like Lal Mirchi, so not a dupe, but similar!

China Glaze Oh How Street It Is
This is definitely a hot summer shade!
The pricing for NARS nail polish is $18.00 for 0.5 oz and China Glaze is between $4-5.00 for 0.5 oz. Can’t beat that with a stick!
Do you feel the higher price is worth it for the NARS polish, or would you rather stick with a similar China Glaze shade?
