In the world of nail polish, a “dupe” is when totally different brands have the same color. This is GREAT, because many people choose their nail polish based on the brand. It may be name recognition (I mean, who doesn’t recognize OPI or Essie?); it just may be the emotional association with the brand. It may be previous experience using the brand. There’s a lot of psychology behind why a person chooses a specific brand, and that’s a whole different blog post. I’m not hating; I used OPI almost exclusively before I discovered Color Street. For those who are searching for their favorite color, you’re going to want to bookmark this page, because, voila: here is the ultimate Color Street nail polish dupe list.

How does this post work? I’ve divided colors out by Color Street solid, glitter, design, and glitter design. Under each of those categories are the names of the Color Street sets. Then, I will list any known dupes, along with the brand. The BEST way to use this, if you’re searching for a specific color, is to use the Ctrl + F (or, Command + F, if you’re a Mac user like me) function to search the page for the name. That will take you right to what you’re looking for!

SOLID Color Street Nail Polish Dupe List

Most of the dupes will appear in this list, if we’re being realistic. It’s going to be the easiest to find and match dupes for solid colors, because while the rainbow is made of many different shades, these are relatively straightforward to match. I also carry the solids in a bag in my purse when I know I am going somewhere that I could look for more dupes – makes it super easy to find, right?

GLITTER: Color Street Nail Polish Dupe List

Glitter is legit my favorite color. It’s also making a huge appearance in trends, with glitter phone cases, glitter-dipped nail art (not just from Color Street, if you search glitter dipped nails on Pinterest, you’ll see it’s a HUGE trend!). Glitter makes the world a happier, more sparkling place.

While we’re on the topic of Glitter nail polish…. is anyone else DYING for a Color Street dupe of China Glaze’s famous Ruby Red Pumps? I mean, I HOPED Rio Red would be the dupe I dreamed of, but it has a slight bit more of a burgundy vamp to it – I’m not hating on that, but I need that bright red glitter.

GLITTER-DIPPED: Color Street Nail Polish Dupe List

This section will be small, because this line up is not a wide variety like the other categories. The goal will be to have dupes of the base colors listed, as well as matching colors for the glitters, when practical.

Not sure what I mean by “glitter-dipped?” Click HERE to see, and shop all of the Color Street Glitter-dipped designs.

  • Cuban Summer
  • Danube Cool
  • Lisbon Nights
  • Monte Carlo Jackpot
  • Paris Couture (don’t miss out on my blog post about Paris Couture – it was the first glitter-dipped set I tried!)

Final note: this blog post does not include Color Street french tips, or discontinued sets. As new catalogs come out, and some of these sets get discontinued, well, it may be time to write a new blog post specifically sharing dupes for the discontinued shades. For the moment, though, it’s not practical to gather historical data…we’ll see if that changes in the future.

If you’ve found any dupes of your own, please add it in the comments; I’ll get those comments and update the post, along with a thank you and mention of your name. Your help is appreciated to make this a robust resource for those who are looking to replace their favorite liquid nail polish color with just the right shade of Color Street. Also, make sure you join my VIP community and say hi, I LOVE getting to know you!

Make sure that you pin this post, because it will continue to be updated as more dupes are discovered, and new additions are made to the Color Street catalog.
