Today's post is about another RBL (sorry guys.. I know, I've been on an RBL kick lately, but it will come to an end I promise!) This one is Recherche, it is from the Iconic/Ironic Spring 2011 collection. I will also be showing a comparison between this and OPI - I Brake for Manicures.
Not the best picture I've ever taken.. sorry for that yellow flash, it is not in the polish, it is a reflection from my desk lamp.
So Recherche, how gorgeous are you? Are you plum? Are you raisin? WHAT ARE YOU!? Stunning.. that's what you are! I literally could not stop staring at my nails when I was wearing this, I am such a sucker for dark vampy colors. But something was telling me that I owned a polish eerily similar to this.. and boy was I right.
In comes OPI- I Brake for Manicures.
L-R; OPI, RBL, OPI, RBL
Can you honestly tell the difference? I can.. but I think it is only because I know. For all intensive purposes, I would call these dupes. Which is great for you gals that want to save a few extra bucks! (OPI retails for around $8.50, and RBL is $18) So for less than half the price, you get the same great color.
I didn't even want to do this comparison, because in the bottle they looked identical, and I had already spent the money on both. Don't get me wrong, I love Recherche (and RBL) and to me, it's totally worth the money, but.. I could have saved $18, long story short; I wanted to pass along this valuable info to you, readers, so you can save money too, if you want to!
What do you think about Recherche / I Break for Manicures. Do you own either? Will you be purchasing either? Don't you HATE when you buy and expensive polish and realize there is a less expensive dupe out there?
Thanks for reading!
