If you think about it, there are obviously dupes for various polish out there. There are a ton of companies that make nail polish and it could or could not be a coincidence that a company makes a dupe every now and then. However, each nail polish company has their own “trademark” style: OPI loves reds, Color Club does neons and holos well, China Glaze always listens to us and comes up with very innovative textures and colors. So yea, dupes happen.
However, when we’re talking about such a small community of polish lovers, this kind of makes me upset. My good friend DrFrankenPolish has been frankening for a while and she really has a style of their own. But when someone knocks colors off to the exact and sells it for profit, that’s what makes this topic slightly uncomfortable. Yes, DrFrankenPolish does post her recipes, but I don’t think she does it to expect others to sell her intellectual/creative property. I took snippets of DrFrankenPolish and Knock-off-for-profit to show you the similarities to the two:
While there’s nothing we can do about it, I just hope that people would realize that greed does not win 😦
