SMACKDOWN: OPI You’re Such a Budapest v. Deborah Lippmann Shoshanna

Posted on: July 30, 2013

About a week ago I wore Deborah Lippmann’ Shoshanna from the Girls Collection andOPI You’re Such a Budapest at the same time. I painted every other nail a different polish. While I could see a difference, no one else could. You’re Such a Budapest is a teensy bit more blue.

At lunch with a couple of girl friends I asked which polish they liked better. Both thought I was a little nuts, or maybe having a stroke. They thought it was the same polish. The same thing happened at the grocery store. The checker said she liked my nails and asked what polish I had on. She wasn’t quite as rude as my friends when I asked her which nail because they were different polishes!

Because I can see a slight difference I am not calling this a dead on dupe but they are very close. Shoshanna is sold in the Girls Collection from Deborah Lippmann and retails for $48 for the set of 4. You’re Such a Budapest is from OPI’s Euro Collection and sells for $8-10. Looking at the individual price of the Girls Collection, it breaks down to $12 a bottle. But so far I don’t think you can buy Shoshanna on her own. So, if you love this lavender from Deborah Lippmann, the OPI is a great alternative.
(I’m working on a close dupe for Hannah from the same Girls Collection, so stay tuned for that!)

💅 As always, thanks for stopping by!

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
