I Must REALLY Like This Color, #2

Posted on: May 17, 2012


I don’t know what it is about this smoky, grey, purple, brown, dirt colored polish that draws me in, but it’s obvious I really like this color!
You can see these swatched, they are identical. Starting on the left is Sally Hansen Commander in Chic. Next to that is Essie Merino Cool. I bought these 2 polishes at different times and was so surprised that the Essie color was an exact dupe for Sephora by OPI Metro Chic that I did a You Tube video showcasing my “discovery”. At the time the Metro Chic was sold out and there was a huge buzz about it. I soon learned that Commander in Chic was also a dupe. So much for my “discovery”!
I recently bought the Revlon to test it against a CHANEL polish, it is a dupe, and it is listed on my CHANEL dupe page. (you know I don’t list anything on my dupe page unless I know it is a dead on, exact dupe) 🙂

So this is #2 in this series. I’m kind of proud of myself that I only have 3 bottles, this time! 🙂

Tell me, what are your colors you really like?

Hm.. only 3? Are you sure you checked everywhere? 🙂


Hahaha .. I have exactly the same polishes as you do but three more plus! lolol I love the colour what can I say … I make no apologies for it either! haha oxox Care aka Ukeelady!


Ok, you’re right I didn’t include the OPI mini I have in Metro Chic! so that’s not so bad!


You know, it IS a great color!


LOL. I have a purple like that. I have 3 or 4 very similar bottles.


Is that the Vampsterdam type of color, it seemed like you had a few along those lines! So glad I’m not the only one!


No it is more of the Wet n Wild On a Trip color. It is a medium creamy purple type color. it is similar to one of the Julep one’s Charolette I think.

Betty’s Blog

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
