Lilacs Comparison

From left to right: OPI Rumple's Wiggin', Essie Lilacism, Revlon Gum Drop, American Apparel L'Esprit

Index: OPI Rumple's Wiggin'- 3 coats, formula is okay, not the best that I've tried from OPI
Middle: Essie Lilacism- 3 coats, slightly bluer and a tad darker than RW
Ring: Revlon Gum Drop- 4 coats, lightest shade of the four, very streaky and runny, scented with a sweet, musky perfume
Pinky: American Apparel L'Esprit- 2 coats, very opaque, a potential one coater, a couple shades bluer than the rest

These aren't exact dupes but they are indeed very similar to each other with the exception of L'Esprit since it has a different hue compared to the rest. I don't think you would need all four of these unless you're absolutely obsessed with lilacs (like me! =p). If you can't deal with sheer and streaky polishes, avoid the Revlon one at all costs because it's a PITA to apply.

  4. Wow! I did not realize that you had different colours on different nails until I read the post, now I can see the differences. They look the same at a glance though.

  7. It would be great if you could do more comparison swatches! I often look to your blog when trying to decide on which new polishes to buy, and the comparison swatches help alot! Thanks! Love the blog!
