Twinsie Tuesday: Famous Dupe Polish (China Glaze Love Marilyn)

Hi ladies! Happy Valentine's Day! Does anyone have any plans for this evening? My boyfriend and I go to the movies every Tuesday night, so we plan on just sticking to that and going out to dinner tomorrow. Hopefully that will help us beat the crowds. After all these years together, Valentine's Day is just another day. I'm not an over the top romantic either, so I'm not really into V-Day to begin with. I rather he save his money (and I can save mine while we're at it lol)

Today we have another Twinsie Tuesday post. This week, our theme was a famous dupe polish. I had Revlon Whimsical on my mind all day but when I came home last night I couldn't find it anywhere (I have polish laying everrrrywhere lol). I wanted something I could also wear as a Valentine's Day mani, so I picked up one of my untrieds, China Glaze Love Marilyn.

Love Marilyn has quite a few near dupes. OPI Gettin' Miss Piggy With It and Sally Hansen Cha-Ching are the first to come to mind. While they aren't 100% exact, I feel they are close enough where if you own one you don't need the other. I layered 3 coats of China Glaze Love Marilyn and topped it with a coat of Seche Vite.

Sadly, my photos are horrendous. If it wasn't after midnight I would start from scratch, but it's far too late to start over. These are color inaccurate, as my camera never photographs reds correctly. For the most part, they always pull a shade of tomato red. These photos also show was appears to be major chipping on the edges of my nails which isn't visible IRL. I'm not wild about these photos whatsoever....  :(

 Blah....yuckies! lol.In person the polish is truly pretty, it just doesn't translate in my photos.
