Red, Red, Wine...

Anyone who grew up in the 80's might remember that UB40 song, but if not, go to Youtube and find it and listen to it, it's a classic second wave ska song.

Meanwhile, a few couple reds that I found which are dupe-ish.

First up, Maybelline Time for Wine

Two coats, pretty, a bit deeper than the previous OPI INRAW comparison.
A little less than well pigmented because I can see my nail line there.

Not bad, but not really super exciting.

Next, N.Y.C. 227

Two coats, about the same, really.
The shimmer seems to have more pop, too.


Pretty similar, and really hard to tell apart. I know I put TFW on first on my index (far left) then alternated them. Seriously, though, I wonder if I mixed these up. Hmmm. Blog fail!

I admit that neither really do it for me, not sure I'm able to put my finger on it, though.

Thanks for reading my little nail polish journal!


  1. For me this shade usually pops to me if it's got great formula and a bit of shimmer. They are nice though - nice dupes too.

    1. It is gorgeous, I think that there are a lot of this kind of color.
      OTOH, I am kind of biased because I can't see all the subtleties!

  2. They're both really pretty but my favorite is the NYC one!
