Reader's Request: Essie Playa del Platinum vs OPI Skulls & Glossbones

Had a request to compare these 2 polishes:
Essie Playa del Platinum
OPI Skulls & Glossbones

Pinky & Middle: OPI
Ring & Index: Essie

Both were done in 3 coats + 1 coat Poshe.
The Essie needed the 3rd coat,
so I did the same with OPI.

These looked similar under some lights or from far,
but they're not dupes at all.

Essie has a lot more taupe in it
whereas OPI definitely comes across as a light grey when worn against the Essie.

I prefer the application from Essie,
came across as smoother compared to Skulls & Glossbones.
But its definitely more sheer.
I was actually pondering a 4th coat,
but decided not to bother since this is just a comparison mani

Thanks for this! PdP looks a bit off on me, so the OPI may work better on my skin!

I'm glad this was useful and helped you ladies. Do let me know if there are other comparison requests. If I have the polishes, I'll try my best to get them done :)
