My Version of...OPI You Callin Me a Lyre?

I found another polish to put in the "my version of..." category.  Sinful Colors Tutu #1030.  When I bought it, I thought that it would be a nice pale, but opaque, pink since the bottle doesn't look that thin or watery.  But when I went to put it on (for another experiment which didn't work), this pretty is on the sheer side.

This polish reminds me of OPI You Callin Me a Lyre? from the 2012 NYC Ballet softshades collection.  Check out Polish Insomniac's swatch since I don't have the OPI.

My pictures aren't that great of Tutu, plus for some reason my nails are looking a little stained, which is also throwing the color off.

Tutu (the name actually goes with the NYC Ballet names..haha) is a pretty sheer pink with almost invisible shimmers (that you can barely see in sunlight).  I don't think that this is a jelly finish.  Just for curiosity's sake, I kept layering on the polish on my pinkie to see how many it would take to get it opaque...about 5 (but still very faint visible nail line).  This would make a great classic French Manicure pink.  

Tutu is a new color to the core line this year, costs $1.99 and is available at Walgreens.
You Callin Me a Lyre? is $8.50 and available at salons and online.

What do you think of my version?
