Chanel April Dupe!!

Hi guys!!

I thought I'd let you in on an awesome dupe for Chanel's Le Vernis Nail Colour in # 533 April. This colour featured in my Top Nail Colours for All Seasons post and I've recently found an EXACT drugstore dupe in Rimmels Salon Pro # 707 No Need To Blush.
I can see very little colour difference in these two nail polishes, if I had to be picky I would say that Rimmel leans slightly deeper in the swatch but I think thats mainly to do with the texture, while Chanel is quite a thin liquid-like polish, Rimmels is slightly thicker therefore requires less layers to build a rich coverage and in this shot both hands have 2 layers. Rimmels brush is amazing, its huge and you can do one nail in 2 swipes and its tapered to mirror the cuticle curve so you are left with a great shape and makes painting the left hand (or right if you are left handed) much easier!
The finish on these is identical and both have good shine and longevity.

Let me know any of your high end dupes.

Thanks for Reading!


  1. What a good dupe! The colour in the photo looks identical, I know which I'd rather buy!
    It's such a nice colour too, Perfect for autumn. I'm still wearing pastel blue nails but I need some lovely jewel colours now

    1. It it such a great dupe and I actually prefer the formula of the Rimmel one. The colour is really wearable all year round I think. Thanks so much for reading. :)
