Splurge or Steal? Comparison Of $18 Versus $2 Polish!

Well, well, well!  I was not expecting this!

I was rearranging my stash recently and placed Nars Orgasm next to NYC New York Color Peach Sparkle....and I was shocked my how similar they looked in the bottle:

The Nars is noticably more peach, and the NYC is more coral/pink, but for a $16 difference, it was worth a comparison post!

First look!  Which is which??

Answer: my middle and pink fingers are Nars Orgasm, and my ring and pointer finger are NYC New York Cosmetics Peach Sparkle!  

Were you right???

Another shot inside above, artificial inside lights.  Below, outside in full sun.

In case you need a reminder, Nars on the middle finger, NYC on the ring finger.

Outside in the shade:  Nars on the middle/pinky finger, NYC on the ring/pointer finger.

Sorry for being SO pic heavy but this was a worthy comparison, in my opinion!  What do you think?  I don't think you "need" both of these, unless you love peaches and pastels (which you know I do.).  Hope you liked this comparison post!



  1. Wahhh what a good dupe!! I always thought my elf coral is a good one husband hates make up too btw :D

    1. Thanks, Janine! For the price difference I figured it would be no contest, but its nice to be pleasantly surprised when a cheapie kicks some butt!! Makeup lovers unite against plain hubs ;)

  2. I love these kinds of posts - I'm going to have to find that NYC polish! I am also a "reformed" nail bitter it took me 25 years to stop, and kepping the painted & pretty is now my new obsession. :) New follower from the BBHQ!

    1. Jasmine,
      Thanks for stopping by! NYC is easiest to find at Rite Aid, or so I hear, but there are none near me :( Going to check out your blog now! xoxo, Lacey
