As you would have seen in this post, the new Chanel collection includes ‘Tenderley’, a gorgeous new nail polish shade. I put it on immediately and it hasn’t left my nails since! Surprisingly it hasn’t chipped as most Chanel nail polishes do on me and I absolutely love the plummy mauve shade. 

It took me a couple of days to realise but it’s pretty much exactly the same shade as Bourjois’ So Laque “Fashion Gris Gris 49”. Tenderly is ever so slightly more pink, but both polishes look really sophisticated and pretty on the nails. 

The Chanel nail polishes are £18 and the Bourjois So Laque polishes are £5.99… I’d say that’s a pretty decent dupe.

  2. LOVE a good grey. This reminds me of Essie’s Chin-chilly which I love in the spring, have you tried it?

  3. Great dupe! It’s such a pretty colour x

  5. Myrthe says:

    Makes me wonder though if Essie’s merino cool could be a dupe as well…

    Fab dupe! I’m wearing a slightly lighter shade from Essie at the moment and getting lots of compliments on it!

    Such a gorgeous shade! It’d be lovely for the transition between winter and spring, so I may have to go pick one up myself (you and your enabling Lily!!) 🙂

  11. Great shades Lily! 🙂 I have just created my own beauty and lifestyle blog if anyone wants to check it out? I’m posting twice a day about all good things like MAC, Emma Hardie, Rimmel, Chanel and Revlon 🙂

  13. And I bet it’s just as good as the Chanel x.

  14. Lauren S says:

    Oh that definitely is a fab dupe! You can pass over the slight pink hint, and it looks 95% the same – worth the discounted price

  29. Love that shade! It’s so unique, cool, and chic.

  30. Paige says:

    This reminds me a lot of Essie Smokin’ Hot! Such a pretty color

  31. Sam says:

    The two brands are bound to have some dupes, Chanel owns Bourjois!

  33. Maja Lasić says:

    Love both shades but I’d always pick Bourjois nail varnishes over the Chanel ones since they’re amazing in quality and stay on for so long 🙂

  34. such a nice shade it’s actually similar to the colour I posted about today from Color Club

  35. Angeline Lee says:

    I think I found a similar one on Essie too!

  36. Neesha Rees says:

    Wahoo I love a good dupe if it helps with my bank account!

  37. I love finding dupes, I’ll never miss the chance at favouring a bargain over a splurge. Thanks for the tip! x Jenn | Every look tells a story.

  38. Jen27 says:

    Ooh, I love muted plum shades like this, especially for winter and spring! I love Chanel, but I’d be happy to pay the Bourjois price- looks like a great dupe 🙂


  39. Christine S says:

    Both shades look great and it’s so nice to know that there is a cheaper and readily available dupe for Tenderley out there! x

  40. Hannah says:

    Such stunning shades. I am one of those girls who is just a little too lazy when it comes to nailpolish, but with a colour like that I may just make the effort! x

  41. Of the Essie shades, I think Mink Muffs is closer than either Chinchilly or Smokin’ Hot – although none of them have the lilac hint that these do. Can anyone suggest a closer Essie shade, before I hot foot it into town to pick up the Bourjois dupe?


  42. Lovely shade! Surprised to hear that the chanel one didn’t chip too quickly! All of mine do so I never really wear them.

  43. Maria says:

    Great dupe! Grey is such a great colour for nails – unusual yet still neutral! I’m pretty sure that there’s a Kate Moss for Rimmel nail polish that’s also a dupe, and Rimmel is even cheaper!

  44. Great dupe! That colour is just.. No words.

  45. This is amazing!! Desperate to get my hands on something like this
