Julep Alfre / China Glaze Avalanche Comparison

As I mentioned in my review of Julep Alfre yesterday, I had a color in my stash that I thought was very similar.  Turns out, that color is China Glaze Avalanche.  I had bought Avalanche a few months back because I heard it was good for stamping, but hadn't used it til now.  Are Alfre and Avalanche dupes?  Not exactly.  Let's take a look.

I have Avalanche on both my index and ring fingers, and Alfre on my middle and pinky fingers.  As you can see, they're not total dupes. Avalanche is way more on the frosty side whereas Alfre is a bit more mellow in that department.  Frostiness aside, they are spot on in color and application was the same IMO (in my opinion).  As I mentioned in my review for Alfre, I do not like frosty polishes.  In fact,  these 2 colors may possibly be the only frosts I own!  But the color itself is a winner for me, which may mean you might see me giving these babies a try for a full mani.

Anyhoo, what do you think? Similar? Am I way off?

I think they are in the same color family. but the CG looks WAY shinier or metallic looking or something.

yea i totally agree. like i said, i bought the ChG for stamping, but im not sure if i could do a full mani. on the other hand, alfre is a bit tamer, so i could probably see myself giving a full mani a try.
