MAC's "Bad Fairy" vs Accessorize's "Pink Spice"

We all know about the quickly sold out Bad Fairy by MAC, and when images of Accessorize's new line started surfacing there was plenty of talk.

Needless to say I wanted to find out if Pink Spice was indeed a dupe for Bad Fairy.
These two could easily be dupes, but I may be splitting hairs by saying I do see some extremely slight differences that my camera cannot pick up.

In the bottles, Bad Fairy obviously has larger foil flecks whilst Pink Spice has a much smoother appearance.


But on the nails...


I can hardly tell a difference.  In some lights I can see just the slightest difference, but I have to look very closely.  Bad Fairy seems to have just a smidge more of the burgundy color, and the copper flash is sometimes stronger than in Pink Spice.

Can any of you tell me which nails have Pink Spice and which ones have Bad Fairy?  After some guesses from you all, I'll let you know in the comments which one is which.  :oP



These could easily be dupes depending on the batch.

Application wise, I found Pink Spice dries more quickly and my Bad Fairy had a Crummy brush like many others.

If you missed out on Bad Fairy I definitely think Pink Spice is a fabulous alternative.

That is so cool! I have been trying to get my hands on these duo chrome polishes from Accessorize forever... they only have aztec in stock at the minute. I want to get the whole collection! :)

Wow. I just purchased a few backups of Pink Spice the other day! At least they are always getting new stock in.

These are definitely gorgeous colors.
