This is a first of its kind post on my blog.
I didn't ever have a reason to do a "Dupe Alert" post because I PRIDE myself in not having dupes, or close to dupes in my stash. Lol...
I love being able to tell everyone that in my over 4?? polishes, I do NOT have One dupe! It makes me so happy, I tell you.. that I don't have two polishes that look alike. LOL..
But that happiness was uhmm... kind of shattered when I bought OPI - Every Month is Oktoberfest (EMIO).
It looked an awful lot like my previously owned Zoya - Jem, and no matter how hard I tried to convince myself they were nothing alike, the truth still bit me in the bum, so I chose to do a comparison post. Maybe someone out there might benefit from it.
First up, Bottle shots.
(With lots of light)
(Under regular, low light)
Under regular light. Both are on my nails... Can you tell which is which??
Under lots of light and flash.
Here I see some slight differences.
And Here another picture that shows me there might be no difference...
And then there's this picture that kind of shows there might be more purple in Jem (Ring and Pinky).
So, you be the verdict....
Are these two close enough, or can you justify having both??
I'm keeping both of course, because EMIO leans to a near brown color in some lights, and JEM is purely purple in some lights.
What do you think? Do you own both of one of these?
That's it for now.
Till Later, God Bless.
