Alternatives to Chanels Moscou Collection
Looking Chanel fabulous doesn't have to cost a fortune. Shhh....no one will ever know!
Sure, maybe the colors weren't as unique as I'd like them to be, but the formula surely makes up for it in the end. When it comes to formula and application, Chanel has it goin' on. The Moscow collection has rich opaque textures that beat out all the competition hands down.
After playing with all comparisons yesterday, I will say Chanel makes the best shimmer polishes around. The sparkle and shine out beat them all.
Feu De Russie was the easiest to duplicate from the Moscou collection. The closest alternative is Sally Hansen's No Chip 10 day in Endless Nights ($4.99) and coming in at a close second, Nicole Black cat-cha later ($7.99). Both shades available in stores now.
Other Potential Canidates: Sephora Meet For Drinks (too magenta pink), Sephora I'm with Brad (too red like Sinful's rose diamond), Petites Black Rouge and CG Lubu Heels (glitter too red and chunky), Sinful Rich at Heart (too red).
Judging by the bottles, Wagon Trail ($4.99), WnW Stunner ($3.99) do look different from Or De Russia. The bronze shimmer in Chanel's is dead on Dior's Gold Nugget. You could probably franken a dupe with a black or dark brown base with some bronze and gold shimmer.
The only true differences is the brownish and blackish bases.
It takes 2-3 three coats of Nicole's Blues in the Night to accomplish one coat of Chanel's. That's how fabulous Nuit is!
Nicole's Blues in the Night ($7.99) doesn't have nearly the amount of shimmer as Nuit De Russia and Sinful's What's your name ($1.99) is more black with subtle shimmer. Both polishes are readily available at stores.
Hope your having a fabulous Friday!
