Comparison Swatches: Essie The Lace Is On, Nicole By Opi Pretty In Plum, CoverGirl Grapevine

After swatching Essie The Lace Is On a couple of posts ago and it becoming a new favorite of mine, I knew I had to compare it to my other beloved and similar polishes: Nicole By Opi Selena Gomez Pretty In Plum and CoverGirl Grapevine.  All swatches are 2 coats.

I was sure (at least in my head) that TLIO would have been closer in color to the others, but it looks like PIP and GV are the closest to being dupes.  TLIO is much more magenta than PIP and GV, with a bit more depth of pink and purple shimmer.  GV has a strong bluiesh purple shimmer, while PIP has the least shimmer of all.  But that doesn't make PIP any less interesting, its deeper base makes it have more of a vampy glassy glow than the others, which I definitely love!

The greatest difference is shown under fluorescent light, where GV leans blue, TLIO leans pink, and PIP is in the middle. But flash photography brings out the similarities in the polish which almost make them look the same.  Close, but no cigar...therefore it justifies having them all :)
