Battle of the Dupes: MAC Formidable vs Misa Embroidered Emerald vs Orly Galaxy Girl

This series of the battle of the dupes is making me wonder again why I went through the hassle of getting the MAC VV polishes...

MAC Formidable

Misa Embroidered Emerald
This one was on my 2009 Top 20 list.
Loved it. Still do =)

Orly Galaxy Girl

Pinky and Index: Misa Embroidered Emerald
Ring: MAC Formidable
Middle: Orly Galaxy Girl

Each one was 4 coats + 1 coat SV

Embroidered Emerald is the most distinct of the 3 polishes.
The new pigment that is being used in the MAC and Orly ones kinda creates a foil/sparkly look while the Misa one is more of a steady shimmer.
Plus the shimmer in the Misa one comes across more greenish while the other 2 flash teal.

Also, in the bottle, the teal flash in the MAC bottle appeared a little more pronounced as compared to Orly Galaxy Girl.
However, on the nails, they're really almost identical.

Oh well. If MAC had the villians printed onto the bottles,
I would have held on to the bottles.
As it is now, I'm throwing out 2 outta the 3.

It would have rocked, had they put the villains on the bottle!

Exactly! They would have been collectables!
Wouldn't have minded the dupes then!
