HEAD TO HEAD MATCH - Girly Bits Shift Happens VS Clarins 230

I was SOOO excited to get Shift Happens, especially after I heard it was a Clarins 230 dupe. Its, not but its really really close!!! Clarins 230 is more red/purple and Shift Happens is more Orange/Yellow. But they are REALLY REALLY close!

First up the bottle pics. Now the bottle pictures look MUCH more different than the polishes actually are once swatched and dried!

And now the real test: the Swatches. As you can tell, the Shift Happens is much more orange. It really lacks the purple/blue and instead has the orange/yellow in it. Gorgeous and very similar, I think if you missed out on Clarins 230 this one will be a great substitute. Also, the dry time and formula on Shift Happens is in my opinion far superior to that of 230. I have not tried one dud yet of all the polishes Girly Bits makes. All of them have a superb formula honestly better than that of most other brands I have tried.


  1. Oooh! Thanks for the swatch! This is close!

  2. closest dupe i have seen. All her polishes are amazing though. And the formula is much better on hers than Clarins!

  3. Great comparison Shayna. Thank you. I am going to play with the formula a little, and get it a little closer to 230

  4. Way better than the price of Clarins 230!!! I love Pam's polish-am wearing Cosmic Ocean right now!

  5. Do you own Nail Pattern Boldness Boop-Oop-A-Dupe? Just wondering if they are dupes...
