NOTD - Avon Perfectly Flesh - Incredible dupe for Essie Eternal Optimist!!

Essie on my index & ring finger, Avon on my middle & little finger

Literally could not believe my eyes when I received my Avon order and checked out the polish I'd ordered in the shade Perfectly Flesh. I was a bit annoyed in a way as I was thinking I've got a shade just like this and the picture in the Avon brochure did not look this colour when I ordered. 

In the pictures I am wearing Essie Eternal Optimist on my index finger and ring finger and Avon Perfectly Flesh on my middle and little finger. There is barely any difference at all!!!! The only small difference and I mean small is the Avon is a bit gloopier on application. Unbelievable, what a great dupe!

You can buy the Nailwear Pro polishes by clicking Avon for £2.99 and Essie polishes can be bought from Boots for £7.99. If the shades are not available on these websites I'm sure it would be pretty easy to track them down, I did purchase these both recently though.

What a great dupe, although I am still favouring Essie for staying power :-) 

Anyone else found any good dupes recently?

  2. Thanks chick, I reviewed the Essie one a little while ago just couldn't get over the similarit between the 2! x

  3. I live avon products but one thing I have never tried is the nail polishes! After seeing this colour I think I might have to venture out into this!
    Thanks for sharing!
