Ciate Headliner Dupe


When I shared the Essie Absolutely Shore duper (post here) earlier in the week I promised another would follow, well here it is. As with the Sprightly Mint as soon as I saw Fast Time Teal I knew it was a dupe and couldn’t wait to pit it against my recent Ciate addition. It’s not quite as perfect as the Essie one as I can tell these apart on the nails, Headliner is slightly more blue than teal but I think it’s safe to say if you have one you definitely don’t need the other and if you don’t have either I would go for the significantly cheaper version!


Headliner is on my index finger and thumb, Fast Time Teal is on the rest. You can see there’s a little more depth to the Ciate formula, you could get away with two coats of that two where as the Avon I would wear three so that’s something to consider. They’re not identical but they’re pretty darn close!

You can buy Avon’s Speed Dry Nail Polish online for £2.00 each here, Fast Time Teal isn’t available online but it is in the current catalogue if you can get hold of a representative to order it.
