Dupe : Short for the word  Duplicate.

"Dupe" is a commonly used term
in the beauty community for 2 colors/products to be practically identical in

I get asked quite a bit if I know of any dupes or alternative polishes,
so I thought I'd make a list for those who are interested.

Here is my personal list of "dupes"
or alternative polishes that are great matches.
This is a fantastic list to have handy if you do not have access to a certain brand,
or if you are looking for a different price point.
As more dupes come along, I will add them to the list.
