Dupe Alert! Stargazer #155 vs. OPI I’m Not Really A Waitress

Posted by Lipglossiping On June - 6 - 2010

I suspected it from the moment I twirled the bottle between my fingers…

Stargazer #155 (£2) is a very nice match for the cult O.P.I shade I’m Not Really A Waitress (£9.95)

INRAW was the first OPI I bought back in the day and is probably the only bottle of polish I’m even close to finishing.

If I look *really* closely, I’d say that Stargazer #155 is the teeniest bit more cherry toned than INRAW, but there’s barely anything in it.

#155 is opaque in two coats and applies smoothly with a decent brush… not too thin and no straggly long bits.  Quick drying but affording just enough time to work the polish to the edges of the nail bed.  It benefits from a glossy top coat to bring out the sparkle within the polish.

And a comparison with the OPI…

I prefer the Stargazer.  I’ve always had an issue with tip wear with this particular OPI (see my review from last May) and the Stargazer is outperforming INRAW in this instance by a huge amount.  No tip wear at all until the 3rd day.

Did I find a good dupe?  I’m usually pretty crappy at dupe hunting, so I’m kinda chuffed with myself!  Simple things and all that…

    I don’t like INRAW. It’s just not my colour but I might get the SG. I’ve been thinking about getting some of these and now I think I shall.
    Thanks for not totally ignoring the cheap brands. I know there’s no cosmetic cachet attached to Stargazer so thank you.

    I am absolutely going to have to investigate this! INRAW is also one of my favourites and the first OPI I bought 🙂

    And this is the dupe I was waiting for, for Thanks So Muchness from the AiW OPI collection as I hate the consistency. It looks very similar! x

  4. I’m 3rd on INRAW being my favorite OPI as well as the first one I bought! I remember how back when my boyfriend and I first stated dating, I thought it was hilarious to say “Guess what… I’M NOT REALLY A WAITRESS!” Now he can tell when that’s on my nails 🙂 I wish Stargazer was available in the US.

    cute cute cute.
    hello? who cares about the application, brush, an all that jazz: it’s the same colour: £ 2.95: bargain, gorgeous colour
    SOLD.

  7. I love Stargazer products. Especially the nail varnishes. £2.50 each in my New Look. Bargain.

    With a couple of coats they look fab.
    I got a couple of iridescent shades this week, I keep getting complimented on them

    That is a really nice red colour. I don’t know if its the lighting, but the SG looks brighter than the OPI, which is really nice. =) xx

    Ooooh awesome! I think the Stargazer looks a little nicer, and you can’t beat that price!

  10. Wow! What a beautiful colour – and I think the Stargazer looks better than the OPI! More cherry is good. Added this to my wishlist! Though I don’t even know if my local New Look sells Stargazer, I haven’t been in there for years…
