Nails Inc Stratford Vs China Glaze Swanky Silk

Hello everyone,

I hope you are enjoying your weekend so far. I had to work today again but fortunately, I will be having Monday off so yay! I really want to go to the State Fair so that is my plan for Monday.

So here I have a comparison for Nails Inc Stratford and China Glaze Swanky Silk. But first let's see the swatches for Stratford.

From here down, I have Swanky Silk and Stratford swatched side by side so that you can see how extremely similar they look. As far as color goes, they are exactly the same. They have the same champagne/pink duochrome. However, there is a slight difference in the formula. I don't know if you can see it from the pictures but Stratford has a smoother texture. I find that it applies a lot better than Swanky Silk, doesn't bubble, and doesn't show brush strokes like Swanky Silk does.
Stratford costs a few bucks more and contains less product. If price is an issue then I think Swanky Silk is a very good dupe. Otherwise, if you don't mind paying a few bucks more for a better formula, then Stratford would be a better choice.

Which one would you pick?

  1. They look pretty similar! I just picked up Swanky Silk and a few others from that collection the other day.

  2. I have Swanky Silk and I just put it on for the first time today. I love it! Great job on capturing the pink! I also have No Plain Jane and I love it as well.
