Dupes Up: w7 Mosaic vs. Nails Inc Pudding Lane9:24 AM
If you liked Tuesday's post, you're going to love todays! Because today I'm going to tell you how you can score Nails Inc. Pudding Lane for a mere £2....sort of! That's right, it's time for another edition of Dupes Up!
This weeks contenders are:
Retail Cost: £2 (approximately $3.16)
Nails Inc. Pudding Lane
Retail Cost: $9.50
When I picked up this Nails Inc. polish the other day at Sephora, it completely slipped my mind that I had the w7 in the mail!! Even still, I thought there might be some slight differences. Even when I got the w7 out of the package I thought it might be a bit different. In fact, I thought it might have been the answer to the issues I had with Pudding Lane. Both are cyan blue polishes with dark blue and gold hex glitters, but as you can see in the picture below, it looks like the glitter in Mosaic is a bit more sparse than in Pudding Lane.
It's not a TON of difference but there is a noticeable concentration of glitter in the Pudding Lane (right) where the Mosaic (left) is a bit less so. This is sometimes an illusion with glitters though, since in a lot of cases its really that the glitter in the polish has stuck itself to the side of the bottle. And...it seems that might be the case with Pudding Lane. Here are the two on my nails:
Here we have Nails Inc on the index and ring and Mosaic on the middle and pinky fingers. As you can see, they're exactly the same. This is two coats and because of the jelly nature of the base you can see that there is still a BIT of balding in places and there is minimal VNL. The glitter concentration seems to vary depending on how you fill the brush and you can see that difference on the ring finger where I swirled the brush around the bottle rather than dipping it straight in. But otherwise, these two are exact dupes. If you live in the UK, where w7 is readily available and Nails Inc can retail for £11 or more, this is your lucky day! If you live in the US, where Nails Inc are $9.50 and w7 is only available online (with overseas shipping! Ouch!) you may be better off to just visit your local Sephora counter. BUT if you have a few other things on your overseas shopping list, you might still make out!!
Availability: w7 is available in drugstores across the UK. Nails Inc is available in the US at Sephora, Sephora.com, and select drugstores in the UK.
