Alternatives to Chanel Haute Chocolat Polish
Chanel's Haute Chocolate nail polish is truely fab, I'm not going to lie. But, nowadays with the ecomony in the early stages of recession and uprising costs on just about everything, twenty bucks may not be realistic for most of us. So, here's some alternative brown nail polish comparisons that's on a friendlier budget.
Check out the swatches below.
Sally Hansen's, Haute Chocolate ($5.99), may resemble Chanels name but is much different in color. Sally's version is much more red toned compared to Chanel's milky brown.
Chanel's, Haute Chocolat ($20), is a true milk chocolate brown filled with gold pearl and very slight red shimmer. It's the perfect brown shade espically if you've been searching.
Sally Hansen's, The Good Earth ($5.99), is an excellent alternative to Chanel's. The colors may not be an exact dupe (which, quite honestly may be hard to find) but, it's close and a gorgeous color if that. The Good Earth is slightly darker brown with a tad bit red toned and has less gold shimmer compared to Haute Chocolat but is a great brown regardless.
The Good Earth was released in the Tracy Reese fall 08 collection and should be available at stores now.

How do you think it compares to China Glaze Prize Winning Mare, and Side Saddle?

Hi Honey, They are both very different. Prize Winning Mare is Golden Bronzey and Side Saddle is reddish/maroon shade. The Good Earth was the closest comparison I had. :)
