Oh, yeah. *_*
The Royal Textured Glitter from Barry M. My legs start to tremble every time I think about these polishes. They’re sparkly and shiny and amazing, the whole collection is simply breathtaking. I already showed you Majesty and Princess – and yes, I might have gone to extremes in raving about them. Well, I couldn’t help myself and finally I bought the whole collection. That was when I realized that it’s not that difficult to find some dupes for them, so let’s see what I found.
Barry M – Princess vs. Moyra – Sand Effect No. 851
Let’s star with the most beautiful one (isn’t every single one if them the most beautiful though? o_O). I compared Princess to one of Moyra’s latest sand polishes and well-well, aren’t they similar?

Okay, they’re not entirely the same, because Moyra is a tad darker:
I applied two coats of both of them. Another very very similar polish could be one of the new Golden Rose Galaxy polishes. We’ll see about that too. ;)
Barry M – Majesty vs. Moyra Sand Effect No. 852
Another Barry M dupe from Moyra. Thank you Moyra. ;)

There’s a shade difference between them too, but it’s barely noticeable.
Two coats of both of them.
Rimmel – Space Dust Aurora vs. Claire’s – Glitter Sand Pastel Pink vs. Barry M – Duchess
Duchess was the most easily duped. I found a Claire’s and a Rimmel polish that looked exactly the same.

They are COMPLETELY the same. :D
Let’s discuss this colour a little bit longer though, because it’s so gorgeous. It’s the perfect nude(ish) sand polish. It’s the most delicate and feminine rose gold ever.
Barry M – Lady vs. Golden Rose Holiday 70
Lady is a very elegand white sand and looks almost perfectly the same as one of the Golden Rose Holiday polishes.
- From left to right: Golden Rose, Barry M, Golden Rose, Barry M
Almost, because until Barry M covers perfectly with 3 coats, Golden Rose would need 4 coats to do the same.
Both of them are gorgeous! I really liked the white Lovely Snow Dust too for its cold undertone, but I can appreciate the warmth is these beauties too.
Golden Rose Holiday 58 vs. Barry M – Countess vs. IsaDora – Wine Crush
My beloved IsaDora Wine Crush is here once again. Not just as a dupe for Golden Rose Holiday 58, but for Barry M Countess too.
- From left to right: Golden Rose, Barry M, IsaDora, Barry M
They’re the same. Completely.
So it seems that we found a dupe for every polish in this collection, not 100% dupes in all cases, but these slight differences are not that obvious. All of the mentioned polishes are gorgeous, I hope you can find either of them if you fell in love with them. :)
