About a month ago I posted a review of OPI Vodka & Caviar. Check it out here if you haven’t yet! Anyways, I wanted to do a comparison since I own a few polishes that looked similar to it and I wanted to see if I had any dupes. For comparison purposes I will be reviewing OPI Vodka & Caviar, Essie First Dance, Zoya Sooki and Nails Inc Charging Cross.
First up is Nails Inc Charging Cross. This polish was released for the Fall 2011 Collection. Index to Pinky: Nails Inc. Charging Cross, OPI Vodka & Caviar, Nails Inc. CC and OPI V&C
They are similar however the Nails Inc leans a little more orange and not necessarily a true red when right beside OPI V&C.
Next up is Zoya Sooki. This is a very popular colour for the ladies on MUA and I often see it listed as a go-to red. This was released in 2011 in the Summertime Collection. Index to Pinky: Zoya Sooki, OPI Vodka & Caviar, Zoya Sooki and OPI V&C.
Zoya Sooki has the same kind of colouring as Nails Inc Charging Cross. It leans a little orange when it is up against OPI V&C. This isn’t a dupe either.
Finally we have Essie First Dance from their Wedding 2011 Collection. (2011 was very popular year for red nail polish!) Index to Pinky: Essie First Dance, OPI Vodka & Caviar, Essie First Dance and OPI V&C.
The colours are really similar and I’m calling them dupes. When I was painting them I had to put the bottles in front of my fingers so I could remember which finger had which polish on it. Unless you are crazy for red I don’t think you need to have both in your collection. I prefer OPI’s ProWide brush and you get a little more with OPI however Essie has a really good formula and is still available online.
