Cute As A Button vs. Temptation

A few of yous guys mentioned you'd like to see a comparison between a polish I showed you the other day, Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Temptation, and Essie Cute As A Button. Welp here ya go luvs!

Cute As A Button is one of my favorite Essie's ever and I really liked Temptation when I wore it but didn't make the connection to their similarity until it was pointed out to me by some readers. They actually are super similar, but not quite dupes.

The Essie is a smidge warmer/more coral and the Sally Hansen is a bit more opaque and is a total crème where the Essie has almost more of a jelly-crème finish. Both are excellent polishes. If you're having trouble finding Cute As A Button, try Temptation. You should be able to find it in stores wherever Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure is sold.

Some of the products mentioned were provided for review.

  3. Great comparison! I would probably get the Essie myself, just because I hate the brush in the SH CSM polishes =)

  5. I also am a big fan of Cute as a Button. Nice to see comparison posts always. I try hard now not to buy close polish shades due to lack of storage space now for my stash.

  6. Thank you for this, I've been after a pretty coral for ages and we don't have Essie locally so I will be picking that Sally Hansen one up! x

  7. I have Temptation and never realized it was a dupe (or near dupe)! This post put a huge smile on my face.

    Btw, Temptation was an LE from the Spring/Summer 2012 Tracy Reese collection. It'll be hit or miss if you will still be able to find this in a couple of months since they tend to disappear pretty quickly.

  10. Not gonna lie, I thought they were the same color but then after a while I started to see the difference. Those are nice colors though!

    I wonder if it is closer to Essie California Coral? I am forever searching for the perfect coral, and I have Cute as a Button but am still looking. I will have to look for the Sally hansen. Nice comparison
