Orly Nite Owl

Orly Nail Polish
 I broke a nail:(  So they are now filed down pretty far - ignore that...
Okay, here's the situation.  I had my eye on Butter London All Hail McQueen about a year ago.  I went to Ulta to pick it up and ended up getting Butter London Fash Pack instead....not a smart move.  I really don't like Fash Pack at all.  Anyway, since then, I still had All Hail McQueen on my wishlist.  Last week I decided that I was going to pick it up, but decided to stop at Sally Beauty Supply first.  I took a look at the Orly section and noticed "Nite Owl".  When researching All Hail McQueen dupes, I noticed that Nite Owl was pretty close.....so, I was excited to see it (it had a "new shade" thingy on it, but I know it's not new - but new to Sally's).  I have the Sally Beauty Card so I got it for like $5.49, I think....and All Hail McQueen is $14.  I decided this was a better deal and to make a long story short - I LOVE IT!  I love taupe nail polish and with the added silver shimmer...exactly what I was looking for.  Now that I am typing this, I realize it's a taupe version of my favorite pink "OPI Pedal Faster Suzi" (my Saturday post).  The application is wonderful and I am so happy with it.  Who knows, I may still get All Hail McQueen at some point, but for the time being, I am happy:)
Taupe Nail Polish

Here are the polishes I have that came to mind as dupes. When I put them together, they aren't.  Cult Nails Power Thief has the same shimmer, but is a tad darker.  Fash Pack is the same taupe color, but the shimmer is more golden.  

Have a great week!

  1. Oooh that's a really pretty taupe! I don't have All Hail McQueen, but it does look like a close dupe from what I have seen online. :-)

  2. I have All Hail the Queen and this does look close to me. I almost want to get it anyway. Like you, I'm a sucker for a good neutral!

  4. This has been on my wish list forever! Your pics are only making me love it more! I think I need to make a pit stop at my nail supply shop today. And I agree that it's a great dupe for All Jail the Queen- which is also on my wish list ironically :)

  5. Love it! I have two European dupes for it myself. Not even together they make the price of the BL!

    1. I did too and finally found it at Sally's. If you have one by you, try there now. It had "new" on it - even though it's not new. But I guess new to Sally's :)

    2. I've been to my Sally's and Ulta quite recently. They have tons of Lucky Duck, but no Nite Owl :( I'll probably have to swap for it!
