If you’re anything like me you alway seem to fall in love with the limited edition shades that only come around every once in a while. Am I right?


Well just last week I was snooping around my nail polish collection and I found a dupe for my favourite Essie shade ‘Pret-A-Surfer’.The Maybelline Super Stay Gel Nail Color in ‘Surreal’ is only slightly more purple but equally as beautiful on the nails. Formulation wise the Essie offering is more pigmented however the longevity is identical both wearing for about 4-5 days without chipping on me. So if you’re regretting not picking up ‘Pret-A-Surfer’ when it was out head to your nearest Maybelline counter for a very close match!


Have you found an awesome dupe for your favourite nail polish or lipstick?
