As promised in my post showing Butter London Toff, I am showing how it compares to other mauve shades in my collection. I have learned here that it is important not to judge a polish by the way it looks in the bottle....kind of like don't judge a book by its cover. I thought I had some pretty close dupes, but it turns out I just have 1.
As you can see, Essie Angora Cardi is pretty close to Toff. I say "pretty close" because it does have a bit more rosy undertones and Toff has more purple undertones. Toni is a bit too purple. I decided that if Toni and Angora Cardi got together and had a baby, Toff would probably be their bundle of joy.
And never mind Finger Paints Free Form Fawn - she is a distant cousin. Again, in the bottle it was similar, but wow did it ever come out different on the nail.
So there you have it. If you don't want to spend $14 on a Butter London and are okay with "close enough" then grab Angora Cardi. If you are looking for a really pretty purple-mauve, check out Julep Toni. I LOVE it and will be doing a review soon. And as far as Free Form Fawn....MEH.
