|Color Club Lavendarling versus Zoya Malia|
Zoya Malia is one of my favorite nail polishes. It is a creamy medium grape purple. Its formula is perfect - self-evening, not streaky, and looks fabulous in one to two coats. However, Malia costs $8, and I purchased Lavendarling for only $3, so I would be happy to find a more affordable dupe.
In the picture below, I am wearing two coats of Zoya Malia on my middle and pinky fingers and two coats of Lavendarling on my pointer and ring fingers.

While the colors of the two polishes are indeed identical, the Zoya formula far outshines the problematic Color Club polish. As you can see, Lavendarling was thick, streaky, and did not even out on my nails.
I'll stick to Zoya Malia.
