Models Own Beetlejuice Collection Compairsons

Good morning!! Today as promised, I have a bunch of comparisons of the Models Own Beetlejuice Collection polishes to show you! The only polish not compared is Emerald Black, I couldn't think of anything I have similar to it...if you guys can think of any let me know in the comments and I can compare them if I have the polish you suggest! I put most of this post under a cut, it's pretty picture heavy!

First up is Models Own Pinky Brown vs Mac Bad Fairy. I know every one was hoping this was a dupe, I sure was. I was lucky enough to get a bottle of Bad Fairy before it sold out last year but I completely regret not getting a back up. Unfortunately Pinky Brown is no dupe, same idea though so if you like one you'll probably like the other. Different enough in my opinion to own both. Pinky Brown has a much darker base and darker pink tone to it. The color shift is a bit close though, the tone of orange is similar. Formula wise both are 3 coaters but apply easily. I think that Pinky Brown might be a bit closer to that Claire's polish that came out a while back (the name is totally escaping me right now) but I can't find my bottle :(






Shade

Models Own Purple Blue vs. Orly Galaxy Girl. When I saw Purple Blue in the bottle I thought for sure it would be close to Galaxy Girl. I kind of forgot how much I loved Galaxy Girl, it never got much wear from me because I was so obsessed with Space Cadet from the same collection. Unfortunately this is also not a dupe, Galaxy Girl is much darker and the blue shimmer in the Orly is much more noticeable. The color shift isn't as in your face with Galaxy Girl either. Formula wise the Orly was a tiny bit better, 2 coats versus 3 coats for Purple Blue.  As much as I love Galaxy Girl I prefer Purple Blue!



Models Own Golden Green vs. Ozotic 507 vs. Chanel Peridot. I thought for sure Golden Green would be a dupe to Peridot when Models Own first put up bottle pictures. When I got Golden Green in the mail I realized it wasn't close to Peridot but it is pretty similar to Ozotic 507. The Ozotic is a bit more gold and a bit less blue but it's not that noticeable in real life. Formula wise Models Own wins over both of these, the Ozotic is pretty sheer I think I used 4 coats for the photos below and the Chanel always gives me problems to apply (streaky, patchy etc...). Overall of these 3 Golden Green is my favorite, both for the color and the formula. It's what I had wished Peridot was when I got it.

Aqua Violet vs. Ozotic 505 alright now I know these look nothing alike but in the bottles it looked a little close lol! It was suggested in the comments of yesterday's post that Aqua Violet might be close to Sally Hansen DVD but unfortunately I swapped my bottle of that away a while back so I'm not sure if it is or not. You know, I think this is the first time I've used Ozotic 505 on it's own....it made me appreciate why I layer it. I think I needed 5 coats for the photos below and in person you could still see the nail line.


I don't know why this looks so blurry, sorry :(
That's it guys, no 100% dupes here but Ozotic 507 and Golden Green are pretty close! Hope this was helpful for you!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. Where did you get Ozotic nail polishes and does they contain toluene? Because most of the models own polishes unfortunately do. Are ozotic nail polishes available for international costumers ( do they ship here?). Thank you!

  7. I fell in love with MAC Bad Fairy

  8. Thanks for all the swatches! I'm hoping MAC will re-release Bad Fairy still. I have the Claire's polish (Poison Apple), but from your swatches the Models Own version looks waaaay more duochromey (is that a word?... it is now!;))

  9. These Beetlejuice polishes are really proving to be unique!  I'm so happy that they are perm and not limited edition.  *fingers crossed for the Beetlejuice Collection to be in my stocking for Christmas*  :D

  19. You know, I just don't like Chanel Peridot. I find it kind of boring for duochrome. Ozotic 505 however I LOVE! Ordered it last night!

    ReplyDelete
  20. Aqua Violet is like The Color to Watch (OPI) and possibly Rain Check (Wet N Wild). Idk but kinda close.. :D

    ReplyDelete

  29. Bad Fairy is seriously fantastical, it's one of my all time favorite polishes

    ReplyDelete
  30. ahhhh that's it, Poison Apple! I think duochromey is a word...it sounds like something I would say too lol! I think you're right about that, being more duochromey

    ReplyDelete

    ReplyDelete
  36. I just got Purple Blue in the post this morning and am so excited to try it out, but I JUST holo'd my nails last night! Patience is a virtue!

    ReplyDelete
  37. GREAT comparison post Jen!! When I eventually... hopefully... maybe.. get my Models Own polishes I'm sending people your way for polish comparisons! ^_^

    ReplyDelete
  38. It's all so pretty! I want bad Fairy! Too bad I wasn't the nailpolishlover I am now when the Venomous Villains collection came out. I wore Peridot only once and I liked it, just not enough to get a bottle of it. Or the Sephore dupe for that matter. Nice comparisons :)

    ReplyDelete
  39. I love your blog! I follow You

    ReplyDelete
  40. Great comparison, but I still want the entire collection..LOL! :)

    ReplyDelete
  41. You could compare emerald black to OPI Cuckoo for this color(Swiss Collection)

    ReplyDelete
  42. I don't have that OPI but I believe it's a different, much more vibrant, shade of blue
