Comparison - China Glaze Electric Pineapple & OPI Fiercely Fiona
EP, a yellow-lime green creme, is my 3rd polish from the Island Escape Collection. I had read a few reviews on this one, other bloggers found it to be on the thick side and only needed 2 coats for full opacity. I had a different experience with it. Mine was very thin, I had to be extra careful not to flood my cuticles and although I did 2 coats, a 3rd coat was most definitely needed. It was a bit on the streaky side but it does even itself out, especially after a top coat.
FF from the Shrek Forever After Collection, is also a murky lemony yellow but has less of a green cast to it than EP. In my opinion, application on this one was very similar to EP, the formula is quite thin and needed 3 coats for opacity. Having said that, in the world of notoriously bad yellows, this would probably come out on top in terms of application.
So, all in all, they aren't exactly dupes and a lot of polish fanatics would be able to distinguish between the two colours (especially irl), but if they weren't side by side but I would have to look pretty close and still find it hard! I love both colours but for my skin tone I prefer FF.
