Sally Hansen 460 Save the date vs. Rival de Loop 704

Hello everyone,

today I want to show you two more of my favorite polishes.
First I bought this Rival de Loop Long lasting nail polish and fell in love with it. I don’t even know what this color is called or how it would be best described as but you can see what it is.
Sadly when I contacted the company, they told me that they neither produce nor sell this color anymore so I was very frustrated. This polish is one of my go to polishes when I have no idea what to put on.

So I was looking for a dupe, which is not easy to be found.
While I was in New York this January, I saw this beautiful Sally Hansen Diamond Strength no chip nail color ( 460 Save the Date). I thought it looked pretty similar to the Rival de Loop one and since I heard so many good things about Sally Hansen polishes this was my first ever Sally Hansen nail polish. It contains 13,3ml and was about 6 $ I think. I put it on immediately that night and was very impressed. It went on very smoothly because of it’s liquid consistency. The only thing I am still getting used to is this super thin and loooong nail brush^^
I don’t get it, because the Fuzzy Coat I bought later on has a much nicer brush.
On the other hand, my two Xtream Wear polishes from Sally Hansen have the same thin brush.
I don’t know, I think they should switch all the thin brushes to the ones from the Fuzzy Coat, because it makes it much easier to apply the polish.

The polishes are very similar looking in the bottles.

When you apply them you can see the slight difference though.
The second finger on the left was painted with the Sally Hansen polish, the second from the right is the Rival de Loop polish.
As you can see, the Sally Hansen polish is a bit more purple with a golden shimmer. The Rival de Loop polish is more dark red with golden shimmer.

I think these are both gorgeous polishes, but the Sally Hansen polish is not really a dupe to my Rival de Loop polish.
Means I will have to continue searching for a dupe.
Meanwhile I will try not to use my Rival de Loop polish as much.

I hope you enjoyed this post.

  1. I really like the Sally Hansen polish, but I also like the Rival de Loop, too. Gah! It is so annoying when companies stop making your favourite polish and then you have to search for a dupe, especcially one with such depth. Good luck!
