Deborah Lippmann Through The Fire Dupes

Last week in Manicure Mondays, I kicked off 2013 by featuring the color of the year Pantone’s emerald green nail polish, and this week, I thought I’d cover the color of the month for us January babies, garnet. I have been looking for the perfect metallic garnet nail polish for about a year now, and all of a sudden, I realized I have three that look pretty similar {nail polish addict problems lol}, so I thought I’d share a few dupe comparison swatches.

Deborah Lippmann Through The Fire Swatch

Deborah Lippmann’s Through The Fire is a gorgeous deep garnet red nail polish that goes on perfectly in only one coat! I loved the formula and I loved the brush; however it’s a little pricey at $18 a bottle!

Zoya Blair Swatch

Zoya Blair was most similar to Deborah Lippmann’s Through the Fire in its deep garnet hue and metallic sparkle. I have never had complaints about Zoya’s brushes because the formula goes on so easy that it didn’t matter. However, you realize size does matter in brushes and you get what you pay for in formula when you swatch Zoya immediately after Deborah Lippmann. With that said, unless you are comparing the two back to back and have never disliked Zoya’s formula or brush, then Blair is a great dupe and comes with a price tag of only $8.

Juelp Sharon Swatch

Julep Sharon was almost identical to Through the Fire in the bottle; however, it was a bit lighter and had less shimmer when swatched. You probably wouldn’t notice the color difference unless you were comparing, so I think this is another great dupe. Julep Sharon is $14 a bottle, not much less than Through the Fire, or get it for $11.50 if you are a Julep Maven.

    Pretty! Zoya Blair is an almost dead on dupe!

    • jennifer says:

      i honestly can’t tell the difference between the two. the price is way different, and the formula and brush are only slightly different, but swatched, i can’t tell a difference between the two at all.

    Ooh I love this colour. In fact, I have a very similar one that costs me £2.99! BARGAIN! And it lasts for days!

  4. Great review, impressed with the colour and performance of Zoey Blair vs Lippmann. Thanks for sharing. Definitely mind kind of colour!

    I looked at the pictures before reading and picked the Deborah Lippmann as the prettiest one of the three. They’re all gorgeous though! Love ‘em!

  6. [...] was Pantone’s color of the year, emerald nail polish, followed by the color of the month, garnet nail polish. I’m keeping the new year / new month theme going today by unboxing and swatching [...]

    Have you ever tried Covergirl’s forever festive? It’s a beautiful cranberry red metallic and I actually like the way it applies. It’s in the outlast stay brilliant line, in the square bottles.
    I think in my last Zoya order I was picking between Sarah and Blair, and I believe I chose Sarah. Now I see I’ll have to get Blair too. So pretty!
