Essie Jiggle Hi Jiggle Low (+ dupes!)

Essie Jiggle Hi Jiggle Low COVEREssie’s winter 2014 collection is all about celebrating the holidays. For the most part I found the polishes in this collection to be a bit generic. But the namesake polish, Jiggle Hi Jiggle Low, caught my eye.

Jiggle Hi Jiggle Low is a metallic platinum with gold glitter. This polish is GORGEOUS and great for this time of year; metallics are neutrals after all! This polish goes with everything.

The formula is fantastic. I used just 2 coats in my swatches.

The only problem….I have not 1, but 2 polishes already in my collection that are an exact dupe of Jiggle Hi Jiggle Low.

Last fall China Glaze released Gossip Over Gimlets; a polish I also fell hard for. It is a dead on dupe of Jiggle Hi Jiggle Low. Even before China Glaze released Gossip Over Gimlets wet n wild released their Fergie nail color line. Going Platinum from that line is a dead on dupe as well.

So, if you have either Gossip Over Gimlets or Going Platinum in your collection definitely pass on Jiggle Hi Jiggle Low. If not, Jiggle Hi Jiggle Low is available at Ulta as well as on Amazon. Jiggle Hi Jiggle Low is included in the mini set for this collection which can also be found at Ulta or Amazon.

Below the jump you will find swatches of Jiggle Hi Jiggle Low as well as comparisons to Gossip Over Gimlets and Going Platinum.

Essie Partner in Crime

Essie Partner in Crime COVER Ok, I know brown polish are a somewhat controversial topic. Some people hate them and cannot understand why one would wear such a color on their nails.
