OPI Do You Lilac It? vs. OPI A Grape Fit

Photobucket

Here is a comparison swatch of two different purple cremes by OPI.

Index and Ring: OPI Do You Lilac It? NL B29
Middle and Pinky: OPI A Grape Fit NL B87


The swatch above is three coats of each; however, A Grape Fit was opaque in two coats already. Its formula is a lot more pigmented and smoother compared to Do You Lilac It? I don't know why, but DYLYI seems to thicken up really really fast. Oh well, there's nothing a lil thinner can't  fix. n_n

Different enough to own both? Yes, because they're practically two different colours! But for some reason I don't really like A Grape Fit on me, it doesn't seem to match my skin tone all that well and plus, it's really similar to another polish that I own. Then again, there's no such thing as owning too many nail polishes. ;)

  1. I am loving the purple cremes at the moment. I think both these colours are gorgeous.

    Do You Lilac It? is very similar to Butter's Muggins.

    Beautiful!

  7. Thanks for showing this! I will have to try A Grape Fit to see if it will look okay on me. Lilacs and lavenders just make me look jaundiced.

  8. I have DYLI and i LOVE it. I think I consider it "my color" like, it sums me up so well when I wear it, because it's so bright and light, it's mod and it's purple, so I don't know. Oh my gosh, i haven't worn it in so long, I want to take off my current manicure right now and wear it! It's really been months - far too long.

  9. Thanks for the comparison, I'm more into shimmer than cremes at the moment but DYLI is definitely going on my springtime wishlist, it looks so elegant!

  13. Jodes- Me too! I've been in loveee with purple cremes lately, but I still haven't had a chance to wear one yet. Lol! I am currently wearing a pastel green franken...totally random. I'm not sure how Butter's Muggins looks like. Lemme go look it up right now! I bet it's gorgeous! :D

    Kirsten-Thank you! Do you lilac it? is an AMAZING polish! You really need it! It's a classic! : )

    nihrida- Thanks dear! I love your nails too!<3 I can never fit some of the Konad designs on cuz my nails are too skinny. =(

  15. Mary- Thank you so much! I still have to learn how to shape my nails properly though cuz I can never get them to look the same. Lol! XD

    gildedangel- It's a gorgeous colour! Awesome formula too! You should really get it! : )

    Mighty Lambchop- I hope A Grape Fit will work for you! It's a really pretty purple even though it didn't seem to have matched my skin tone all that well. I still love the colour tho! =)

    Danica- I loveeee DYLI too! I fall back in love with it everytime I wear it! But there's just something about the formula that i don't quite like. Oh well..I guess i can always pick up a new bottle! :D

    chocaddict- DYLI is definitely a must-have! You'll have to get it for sure! In fact, don't even bother waiting till spring, get it right now! Teeheehee! Love love love the colour!<3 I'm sure it'll look beautiful on you! =)

    Magnolia- Haha, they actually don't look that similar. My picture isn't that colour accurate cuz the sun was at a weird angle and AGF's shadow was covering DYLI's! Lol, I make them sound as if they're real people. XD

    Karin- Thanks hun!<3 Oh my, i can't wait till this semester ends! we'll have to party it up everyday during christmas! =D

    duckalicious- Hmm...you're right! I think they're pretty similar but DOID is lighter and has more grey in it compared to DYLI. Maybe I should swatch these two for reference too! :D

    Lucy- Thank you so much dear!<3<3<3
