Revlon Wintermint Dupe for Deborah Lippmann Mermaid's Dream

Hello My Lovelies!

In the nail polish world, there is something us addicts like to call a nail polish dupe. According to Websters Dictionary the word duplicate (or dupe for short in the nail polish world) means: 1) A copy EXACTLY like the original. 2) Anything corresponding in all respects to something else (2014).   

With that English lesson aside lets get down to it shall we?

The two nail polishes I'm talking about are Deborah Lippmann's Mermaid's Dream and Revlon Parfumerie Wintermint. I will start off by saying both nail polishes are freaking amazing!

When you look at both of these in the bottle, they look exact and at a quick glance they do look identical. 


  • They are both mint in color and have blue matte glitters, and finely milled silver and green micro-glitters.
  • The formulas on both are awesome. 



Top: Wintermint - Bottom: Mermaid's Dream

  • Mermaid's Dream has larger blue matte glitter and it's much more dense in the glitter department.
  • Mermaid's Dream is a top coat eater, whereas Wintermint is not.
  • Mermaid's Dream has a thicker formula than Wintermint. 
  • Wintermint is scented.
  • Wintermint looks a tad lighter than Mermaid's Dream but that can be due to the lack of glitter which is making it look lighter.  

In summation, I do not feel they would be considered an exact dupe due to the differences; however, they're so close. Do you need both in your collection? No. 

If you ask me, I do prefer Deborah Lippman's Mermaid's Dream over the Revlon Wintermint, as does my honey. If you're like me and don't like to pay a lot for nail polish, then I would say get the Revlon.  

Now you tell me, which one do you like better?

Be Yourself and Be Fabulous!
