Dupes? Zoya Mitzi, Essence Lime Up, China Glaze Electric Pineapple, OPI Did It On 'Em, and OPI Fiercely Fiona



Today I am comparing 5 polishes! While swatching I realized I have a few bottle of the weird yellow/pea/spring green. (l-r) Zoya Mitzi, Essence Lime Up!, China Glaze Electric Pineapple, OPI Did It On 'Em, and OPI Fiercely Fiona.


Back shot of the the 5 polishes. (l-r) Zoya Mitzi, Essence Lime Up!, China Glaze Electric Pineapple, OPI Did It On 'Em, and OPI Fiercely Fiona. They all look pretty similar huh!


This is one coat each of the five polishes. Starting with my thumb then to my index finger and down: (l-r) Zoya Mitzi, Essence Lime Up!, China Glaze Electric Pineapple, OPI Did It On 'Em, and OPI Fiercely Fiona.

As you can see, Zoya Mitzi (thumb) has some drag marks which is normal for a matte polish and only one coat. Essence Lime Up! (index finger) is the most opaque with one coat with China Glaze Electric Pineapple (middle finger) being the next opaque but had a bit of a dragging issue. OPI Did It On 'Em (ring finger) looks a little bit like a jelly but really isn't.


This is two coats of each polish. Zoya Mitzi (thumb), Essence Lime Up! (index), China Glaze Electric Pineapple (middle), OPI Did It On 'Em (ring), and OPI Fiercely Fiona (pinkie finger). With two coats you can get a better show of their colors. China Glaze Electric Pineapple (middle) and OPI Fiercely Fiona (pinkie) have more yellow to them.

Essence Lime Up! (index), is not completely opaque. There are still a few drag marks on Zoya Mitzi. And you can still see the drag marks on China Glaze Electric Pineapple.


Three coats of each now. Zoya Mitzi (thumb), Essence Lime Up! (index), China Glaze Electric Pineapple (middle), OPI Did It On 'Em (ring), and OPI Fiercely Fiona (pinkie finger). Sorry that it is a bit blurry, was starting to loose the light! >_<

All polishes are now completely opaque and China Glaze Electric Pineapple (middle) and OPI Fiercely Fiona (pinkie) are definitely more yellow with OPI Fiercely Fiona the most yellow. Zoya Mitzi looks like Essence Lime Up! mattified. (d'oh! why didn't I try to matte the Essence polish!)

Are they dupes? I wouldn't really say that. I would say that all 5 polishes are different colors but would you need all 5? Well, that depends on your level of polish a-holic-ism! ;) Hahahaha!

I love this color and am glad that I have all 5! :) And just to show you how much I like this color:


Check out how well it matches my blanket! hahahahaha! :)

What do you think? Which is your favorite? Do you need all 5? Do you own all 5 like I do?
