Orly Sapphire Silk vs. Mac Blue India

Good Morning!  Today I have for you guys another comparison that I promised a while ago, sorry for lagging so bad! Way back when I posted Orly's Spring collection aaminahs mom asked me to do a comparison of Orly Sapphire Silk to Mac Blue India. I finally did it! Yay! Unfortunately they aren't dupey. :( Blue India is a bit darker and more dusty (for lack of a better term) and is a creme while Sapphire Silk has more of the squishy jelly finish and is a brighter teal. It might be close enough for you, if you never picked up Blue India.

I used 2 coats of each polish for the pictures below!

  1. Oi! I really thought they'd be more dupe-y. They're not at all!

  2. Rats. I missed out on Blue India....it's so beautiful. ;_;

    But thanks for the comparison!

  3. Blue India- another untried. I think I'll pull it out for today's mani. Looks great on you!! Still searching for that new Sonia Kashuk btw, I must find it-lol!

  4. Every time I see Sapphire Silk swatched, I want it even more. Must get to Sally's! :D

  5. I love Blue India, but Sapphire Silk will be a great alternative/substitute when I run dry! :)

  6. Thanks for the comparison! I didn't think I wanted any of the spring Orlys. Now I do!

  7. Id love to see BI compared to CND Urban Oasis. I can't remember if you have that or not..

  8. I just wanted to tell you that I love your blog and now I am addicted to nail polish..i basically just dedicated a whole blog post to nail polish on my blog now which is something I have not done!! this is so addictive lol


  9. @Rachel Marie

    I haven't done that one! I'll put it on my "to-do" list for this weekend!

  10. @Jess

    that is awesome, thank you! I'll go check out your blog post!

  11. @ChaosButterfly

    Blue India is so great, I missed out on it too. Took me forever to find someone on MUA willing to swap for it!

  12. Thanks for checking my blog out and commenting..you helped me with nail polish addiction..lol :)

  13. Love this color.

    I did a blog post on some of my favorite nail designs by blogs I follow and I featured one of your designs.


    Check it out.

  14. I've picked up three from this collection (Ancient Jade, Royal Velvet and Pure Porcelain - my profile pic) and I think you just convinced me to get Sapphire Silk!

    Squishy and Jelly are two key words that will make me try any color. BTW, I didn't get MAC Blue India, so this will be perfect for me. :)

  15. i wonder if sapphire silk looks a lot like dreams becoming reality from sparitual;s fall collection.

  16. I think this looks pretty close to the MAC. Very pretty. I also missed out on the MAC polish. I'll have to buy the Orly. Thanks for comparing them.

  17. Thanks for this comparison post! :) I just got the Orly Sapphire Silk and was wondering how it compared to MAC Blue India, which I never got my hands on! Thanks!

  18. Thanks for the comparison! I found this post after searching for reviews of Blue India. I've heard that their formulas are quite bad - do you find that to be true with this one? Also, could you do a comparison with Blue India and Orly Blue Suede (even though it's a matte)?


  19. @Jessica

    I didn't think it was bad! Sometimes Mac polish isn't great but Blue India is one of the better one!

    Unfortunately I don't own that Orly polish so I can't compare the two, sorry about that
