Sephora by OPI "Chestnuts about you" nail polish swatch/comparison

Sephora's website describes this polish as an opaque pink champagne with fine glitter.  When I received the bottle I immediately thought of the popular Orly "Rage" nail polish and also a limited edition Loreal polish "Whimsical (#333)".   Chestnuts about you was opaque in 2 coats.   The glitter is so fine, it's easy to remove afterwards.   As you will see below, it is pretty much an exact dupe of Loreal "Whimsical" and if you have Orly "Rage", you could probably pass on this.  I am a rose gold lover, so my collection will gladly accept it.   Hope you enjoy the swatches.

  1. I tried to buy chestnuts about you today, but it was sold out! :(

  2. Hi Anna! I'll sell you mine. Let me know if you are interested. I debated about returning it because I have an exact dupe, but I don't want it to just be thrown away. Let me know! I want someone to have it that will appreciate it! :-) ~Heather

  3. Hi Heather!

    How is the wear for L'Oreal Whimsical compared to $OPI Chestnuts About You? If it's the same and an exact dupe, I will probably grab the cheaper version :)


  4. Hi! Both only lasted 2 days on me before chipping. However, my nails chip super fast no matter which nail polish I use or which top coat. It's just my nails, I suppose! L'Oreal Whimsical was limited edition, so it might be hard to find. Orly Rage was pretty darn similar and that is cheaper than Sephora by OPI's Chestnuts about you.

  5. thank you!! have been trying to find the Chestnuts About you to match the Sephora OPI Gel Nailcolor of the same shade for my pedicures - Sephora has sold out and the cheapest on EBay was over $15!! Nice to see a cheaper alternative for my toes!!
