Dare to Compare | Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Wine Stock vs Madam Glam High Standards

Happy Wednesday! I’m excited to share another nail polish comparison post with all of you. I didn’t find too many duplicate shades in my red stash, seeing as I don’t wear red nail polish often. However, I definitely am a fan of the oxblood trend that seems to take place every fall. Deep red nails are easy to pull off and look good on just about everyone! I own two oxblood shades, one from Sally Hansen and the other from Madam Glam, that look nearly identical in the bottle. I just had to test these out side-by-side to see if they are exact dupes! Let’s get swatching!

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel – Wine Stock Sally Hansen Miracle Gel – Wine StockFirst up is Wine Stock from the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel line. Wine Stock has a great formula, but it is on the sheer side so I layered three coats for full opacity. I love the wide and flat brush that comes with all Miracle Gel polishes. It makes application a breeze once you get used to a bigger brush. Wine Stock is a stunning polish, and one that is a staple in my fall nail polish wardrobe.

Madam Glam – High Standards Madam Glam – High StandardsNext up is Madam Glam High Standards, which is another oxblood creme polish. High Standards has a good formula, but it is a bit on the goopy side. I applied two coats for full opacity, and it does dry to a beautiful finish. High Standards is a bit messier to work with than Wine Stock, but it looks just as gorgeous.

I’m wearing Wine Stock on my pinky and ring fingers, and High Standards on my middle and pointer fingers. I cannot see any difference whatsoever between these two polishes. I can definitely say these are dupes! Personally I prefer Wine Stock by Sally Hansen because of the brush and smooth formula. High Standards is still an excellent polish, but I will be destashing it because of the goopy formula. Thankfully, Wine Stock is part of Sally Hansen’s permanent line, and available for purchase for under $10 at your local drugstore or online HERE. High Standards is currently out of stock on Madam Glam’s website.

All in all, I’m so glad to have found another dupe in my collection. I’m so excited to wear Wine Stock more in the fall months, as it truly is a perfect oxblood shade. I’m also excited that I can recommend it as the more affordable and available option. The Sally Hansen Miracle Gel line is a bit more expensive than most drugstore nail polishes, but keep an eye out for sales and coupons. There is almost always a way to save! Definitely let me know your favorite oxblood nail polish in the comments!

    I own Wine Stock, by Sally Hansen and I absolutely love it! Gorgeous, deep, rich color. It’s one of my favorite polishes. Speaking of ox blood dupes, I had Revlon’s Vixen in my hand the other day, at the cosmetics store. I’ve had my eye on it for a while and I was going to buy it but I changed my mind when I compared it to Wine Stock. They looked very similar in the store so I didn’t buy Vixen. I don’t think they are actual dupes, Vixen seems to have more red pigmentation and Wine Stock is more brown. But they were definitely close enough that I decided not to spend the money. Do you or anyone else own Vixen, and is it close to Wine Stock on the nails?

      I don’t own Vixen. I actually have tried very few Revlon polishes. I had a bad experience once, and just haven’t given many others a try!
