CHANEL May ~ Very Close Dupe

Posted on: May 22, 2012

Since I started doing the dupes for CHANEL polishes I have been asked, over and over, if I knew of a dupe for May. May was released by CHANEL early in 2012 as part of the Spring 2012 collection. Released along with May was April and June. I did find an exact, dead on dupe for April, Revlon Raisin Rage, I have not been able to find an exact, dead on dupe for May or June. May is probably my favorite polish of all time. It is pink and May is my birthday month and my daughter was born in May. I like May. 🙂


This is not an EXACT, DEAD ON DUPE, but I think you will agree, it is pretty darn close. The following pics are of 3 “nails”. The top picture was taken at night: starting on the left is Candy-liscious, the center half May, half Candy-Licious, on the end May.
The next picture is in the morning light, this time May is on the left, center half & half with Candy-licious on the end.


There is such a slight difference, it does not show up in the pictures. Candy-licious/Rose bonbon is just a shade, maybe even half a shade, darker than May. In the center nail, bottom pic, i hope you can see the difference. Ever so slight. That is why I won’t be adding this to my dupe page but I did want to tell you about it. I will continue to look for the exact dupe for May, but this one is so close, and to tell the truth I like the formula of WnW better. Goes on great in 2 coats, not fussy at all. May can be a little fussy. When you look at the price difference of $24, I think the Wet n Wild looks awesome! 🙂

I am going to have to check out Wet ‘n Wild polishes. Thanks again for the dupe!


Your welcome Indie. I don’t think you’ll be un-happy with the WnW, especially at $1.99 regular price. I don’t know about your area but here the WnW goes on sale all the time. Love it even more when it’s half off!


Very good article. I am facing a few of these issues as well.

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
