TIOT: China Glaze Rare & Radiant VS. Finger Paints Bombshell

Today I will be comparing China Glaze Rare & Radiant from the Bohemian Luster Chrome Collection and Finger Paints Bombshell from the Vintage Glam Collection. I've had Bombshell since last year and used it a few times and really liked for the duo chrome finish that it has. Then I was browsing on Amazon earlier this year, (possible even the end of last year) and seen Rare & Radiant from China Glaze and it caught my eye, put it on my wish list and finally decided to purchase it  a few weeks ago. Now I have two polishes that are identical!

Let's have a look at the polish in the bottles first, I can't see any differences. Can you?

So on my thumb, middle and little finger I have Rare & Radiant and on my index and ring finger I have Bombshell. I could not see any differences once I got the polishes on my nails either. The formula was the same on both, not super thin, but somewhat. I did have some brush marks with both polishes, my top coat seemed to smooth that out some.

The China Glaze Rare & Radiant did dry faster than the Finger Paints Bombshell, but honestly that is the only real difference I seen between them. They even seemed to have the same wear time, just minimal tip wear and no chipping.

I don't think you can go wrong with either. If you can't find Bombshell pick up Rare and Radiant and vice versa :)

Since I found this dupe it makes me wonder do I have any other dupes in my collection? I know I have a dupe for China Glaze Ruby Pumps. I will be checking my stash for others :)


  1. Great comparison! I can't believe they're totally identical! LOL Amazing.

    1. Thank you! I know, I thought there would at least be a subtle difference.

  2. Perfect match! And a very pretty shade, too
