Dupe Attack: Wet 'n' Wild Fast Dry- Waves of Enchantment and NYC Colors Golden Glam

It's a decently established fact on the Internets that Zoya Rica and Wet 'n' Wild Waves of Enchantment are essentially dupes.  Of course, this isn't super-helpful for those who are seeking an inexpensive Zoya Rica dupe, since Waves of Enchantment is currently discontinued.

But did you know that NYC Golden Glam gets pretty close, too?  Check these swatches out:

Skip the first two colors swatched, and Waves of Enchantment is the on the left; Golden Glam is on the right. Each of these have two coats.

Waves of Enchantment, with its extra golden undertone and more foil-like finish, is much closer to Zoya Rica than NYC Golden Glam is.  Still, if you aren't super-picky about absolute, one-hundred-percent dupeability, Golden Glam might do it for you.  

(For those curious: the teal chunky glitter on the far left is Orly Flash Glam FX in Mermaid Tale, and the purpley chunky glitter to its right is Orly Bubbly Bombshell. Sara has Zoya Tracie peeking through on her gorgeous thumb.)


  1. Have you seen the WnW Spoiled line at CVS? They have a color called Shrimp on the Barbie that is supposed to be a rebottle of Waves of Enchantment.

    1. Now I wish I had bought that instead of swapping for Rica!
