$1 OPI nail polish DUPES?!?!?!?

I love OPI nail polish. Who doesn't right? What I don't like is the fact that I pay at least $40 every time I go to ulta to a few bottles or make an order online for OPI polishes. I've been buying OPI since I was in 10th grade. That's 7 years of paying $8.00 for bottles of nail polishes! YIKES! Recently I started experimenting and trying out cheaper brands just to see what I could find. I found a little gold mine known as....SINFUL COLORS! This week walgreens had their sinful colors nail polishes priced at just 99 cents so I thought "hey...good time to invest in some bottles and try it out!" $23 later and with the use of 2 great coupons....I have the entire collection of sinful colors available at my walgreens. Since I bought the sinful colors polishes I have not only realized that I have found a wonderful quality nail polish at a very decent price (even regularly they are still only $1.99), but I also discovered quite a few dupes for OPI polishes! What does this all mean? This means that I have found 99 cent nail polishes that are identical to $8.00 nail polishes! Here are pictures of some OPI polishes next to their identical sinful colors version:
SC: easy going 
OPI: sweetheart

SC: boom boom
OPI: don't know...beets me

SC: Bali mist
OPI: Significant other color

SC: Cloud 9
OPI: totally tangerine
(there is just a touch more shimmer in the OPI version in the bottle, but the color and finish comes off extremely close to identical once applied to your nails.)

SC: thimbleberry
OPI: mod-ern girl
(this sinful colors polish is also very similar to nicole alert or cajun shrimp from OPI. It is only slightly off)


  1. wow that's crazy its the same color owow you lucked out !!! 99 Cents that's awesome !!!

  2. i know right!? I couldn't believe it!

  3. That's a really nice deal! I wish there were good quality cheap nail polishes here in Portugal too \:
