Happy Monday! I wanted to see if I had any dupes in my collection to compare to the recently released Don’t Touch My Tutu! from the OPI NYC Ballet Collection.  For this comparison I pulled out Essie Marshmallow and Essie Walk Down the Aisle.  Let’s see how they stack up to Don’t Touch My Tutu!.

From Index to Pinky – OPI Don’t Touch My Tutu!, Essie Marshmallow, OPI Don’t Touch My Tutu!, Essie Walk Down The Aisle

Essie Marshmallow is very difficult to work with, at least my bottle was.  It was streaky and only evened out after 4 coats.  It was much more white than the OPI so I’m not calling it a dupe.  Walk Down the Aisle was closer and it probably could get the same look in 3 coats that OPI is giving in 4.  While Walk Down the Aisle is not part of Essie’s core collection I was able to find it on a few e-tailers for a reasonable price.  I personally like the brush and formula of OPI better but I think that in a pinch Walk Down the Aisle gives a very similar look so I’m calling them a dupe.

What do you think? Do you mind having multiple of the same colours in your collection.
