The above pix is another one with two coats, no topcoat. OPI German-icure by OPI (thumb), OPI La Boheme (ring finger and index) and Sally Hansen Ruby Emerald (middle finger and pinky),
There's been some comments out there in the blogesphere if OPI German-icure by OPI is a a close to or dupe to OPI La Boheme...and it clearly is not. A great fall shade, but close to or dupe it is not. OPI La Boheme and Sally Hansen Ruby Emerald on the other hand, are pretttttyyyyy close, probably even dupes to me. I didn't notice any negligible difference. If you have one, you wouldn't need the other, recognizing that if you don't already have them in your stash, they will be pretty hard to come by, sorry. I bought OPI La Boheme a few years ago on eBay before prices skyrocketed; I know there are couple versions out there and to be honest, I don't know if I have the good or the bad one, but the pix below is what my bottle looks like. While there is this awesome flash in the bottle, I couldn't coax it onto my nails unfortunately. But it is gorgeous on the nail none the less! Heck, so is Sally Hansen Ruby Emerald! The only comment I'd have is that I wouldn't 'waste' La Boheme or even Ruby Emerald in the future if I was going to just stamp on it anyway because all the awesomeness of them was pretty much lost when stamped over as you can see from the pix above. Maybe next time, I'd do a little french tip or a small design.
I did say I did a little a plate review in this post too, so here are couple pix of the new LeaLaC A plate that arrived last week.
