Put Up Your Dupes: Orly Miss Conduct vs China Glaze Infra Red


     For today's comparison post I have Orly Miss Conduct vs. China Glaze Infra Red. I was recently going back and rereading some of my old posts and noticed my comment stating that Infra Red sort of reminded me of Miss Conduct so I decided it was time for a comparison.



     Both polishes are a deep, sparkly shade of pink. Both polishes were fully opaque in 2 coats and had smooth application. But that's where the similarities end. Miss Conduct is a scattered holo, while Infra Red is a linear. The sparkle is far more intense in Miss Conduct, on the nail and in the bottle. All that intense shimmer gives Miss Conduct a slight texture when dry, while Infra Red is smooth to the touch.


     Final verdict is that these 2 polishes are obviously not dupes. I would have to say that the base color is the same with 2 completely different looks. Do you need both in your collection? That all depends on you. I personally like having both polishes. They both would make great bases for nail art or worn on their own.

     As for a favorite... well Miss Conduct eeks out Infra Red with all it's sparkle. Which one is your favorite? Thanks for stopping by and Happy Polishing!

    1. Thanks Lisa =) When I worn them seperately I could of sworn they were closer than they are. But I think they are both pretty colors.

    1. Its not as strong of a holo as some others that I have in my collection. That part sort of let me down but I still like the color. It makes a great base for nail art though because of its subtle holoness. =)

    1. I wanted it so badly when I first saw swatches that I went to the store that day to pick it up...and then silly me waited almost 6 months to use it! I think I might just have to do my next pedi with it, too bad its winter so no one will really see it.
