Today I have a comparison of Jessica’s Venus Was Her Name (index and ring) and China Glaze’s Jungle Queen (middle and pinky). This picture is 3 coats of each.
I think these two were similar more in my mind than in reality…Oh well. Venus is a bluer toned purple with a lot more shimmer than Jungle, while Jungle is browner and has a thicker formula (almost too thick, maybe). These two are different enough that they are not copycats and both are lovely. I would probably go with Venus, just because it’s more sparkly and as you may know, sparkly is my favorite color.
Venus Was Her Name is from Jessica’s Goddess Collection (Winter 2008)
Jungle Queen is from China Glaze’s On Safari Collection (Fall 2012)
For today I have a comparison of Misa Break Away (index), OPI Dutch ‘Ya Just Love OPI? (middle), Pure Ice Purple Reign (ring) and Jessica Witchy Wisteria (pinky). Supposedly there’s a Zoya that’s pretty close as well, but I don’t have it yet. Below is 2 coats of each color in direct sunlight.
As you can see, OPI Dutch and J. Witchy are pretty close to identical, but they are slightly bluer than M. Break. P. Purple is completely different from the rest with a dustier hue and thicker, more golden shimmer. As far as application goes, the Misa was probably my favorite.
Break Away is from Misa’s Fall 2012 Wanderlust Collection
Dutch ‘Ya Just Love OPI? is from OPI’s 2012 Spring/Summer Holland Collection
I don’t know Purple Reign‘s collection or release date, but I know it’s available at Wal-Mart
Witchy Wisteria is from Jessica’s Spring 2012 Heavy Petal Collection
