Dupe Attack from Christina: Zoya Adina, Deborah Lippmann Wicked Game, and Color Club Port-Folio

Guess what Christina from the Lacquer Clones Swatching group on Facebook has provided for the blog?  Dupes for Zoya Adina!

(Okay, fine, it's obvious... there's a photo below.  Let's just pretend that you're surprised.)

Either way, from left to right:  Zoya Adina, Deborah Lippmann Wicked Game, and Color Club Port-Folio.  

Each of these three appear to be purple polishes with a green duochrome shift in the bottle.  There appear to be some variation in finish and hue, but they definitely are cousins.  But their true differences become super-apparent when they are swatched.

Here are the swatches, as labeled by Christina.

Okay, so these are CLEARLY not dupes.  Initially, I thought that since I already own Adina, owning any others would be an absolute waste.  Now, I see that an argument could be made that I was dead wrong.  

Other polishes that belong in this color family include Spoiled-Playing with Platinum (thank you, Cathy, for the hint!), Catrice-Mermaiden (thank you, Sally!), and Wet 'n' Wild- Gray's Anatomy.

Funny thing is, at $4-6 a bottle, the most budget-friendly color here, Color Club Port-Folio, looks the prettiest to me, and the priciest, Deborah Lippmann Wicked Game, which retails at $16 per bottle, is my least favorite.
