Retrodolls US/UK Colour Matching Thread - WIP
« on: February 03, 2019, 01:21:36 PM »
Please use this thread to share your confirmed hair colour matches for Nylon hair from Retrodolls US and Retrodolls UK. It would also be helpful to share any hair colours that were a close, but not exact match and also hair that is definitely not a match so that they can be ruled out. Bear in mind that original 80's hair will fade slightly so in some cases may look different to new hair, even if it is the correct colour.

Retrodolls US Confirmed Matches:


Sonic Lime - Surprise, Honeycomb, Rainbow pony yellow stripe
Buttercup- Applejack, Daddy Apple Delight

Retrodolls UK Confirmed Matches

Shamrock- Lavender Lace forelock, possibly Seashell
Limerick Low Temp - Raspberry Jam, Scrumptious

Can anyone confirm whether the hair from US/UK has the same source? I assume so but it seems that the names differ in some cases

lets see what i can find:
 - all from the UK- nylon
buttercup - matches rosettas yellow stripe
pink sapphire - close to baby tictac toes purple, but a tint lighter
vert - close to tutti frittis green, but less blueish, more deep green
paradise (poly) - close match to curly bowties pink
raspberry smoothie- close to curly bow tie but lighter/a tint colder
I tend to buy more pastel colors, so i can not compare the vibrant colors. I try to match more as i get more in! :D


can someone check if tangerine sorbet fits peaches and cream by dollyhair? And does bordoir fit dollyhairs heart throb?

I have ordered Siberia, Lemon drop, Ballet Slipper, Sea Shell and Orchid.
I am hopping orchid is close to Blossoms purple as I have a few future ponies in the same purple hue that needs some rehairing. Crossing fingers lemon drop is close to Baby sunsets hair color.

Also TheDollPlanet's 'Yellow submarine' is very close to Baby Splosh's yellow, just a slight warmer hue but of course mine have joined me for the bath for years so I dont know if that effects the hair much.. how she dont have rusttail is a miracle.

ohh, please compare ballet slipper to bowtie, that could match!
siberia is one of my favorites, it gives a more opaque and full look when blending a color.^^  lemondrop should be a close match but i am not sure about orchid. i do not have blossom here, is it the same haircolor as baby lemondrop?

It would be good to find a white match too - I tried one from Retro Dolls UK (Dove?) and it’s too ‘white’ and not as silvery as the original G1 hair.

Lemon Drop works great with Vanilla Treat and Brilliant Blossom

Ballet Slipper did not match my Bowtie but she is also a bait pony so I have no ide if she is faded. Tried matching with other pink haired ponies I have but its either to light or too dark.

Sea Shell seems to matc up with the pink on my Rumper but she also the only one with pink left of my faded pink ponies so I dont know how pink 'faded pink' was.

Orchid did not match up with the purple I needed its too "neon" purple compared to Blossoms. Siberia is super white with no sign of the silvershade found in white pony hairs.

I've got a list but it's not done. I want to go through my bait bin.

Are we only doing G1s for this? I can check my G2s.
