My Version of... Essie Fear or Desire


Today I have a new installment of "My Version of..."  The original polish I am comparing to is Essie's Fear or Desire from the Summer 2012 Bikini So Teeny collection.  You can see swatches of it on The PolishAholic's site here.

My candidate is Sinful Colors Clementine from the PopTastic collection (was available at Rite Aid; now at Walgreens in a display hanging on the side of an endcap).

This was 2 coats of Clementine with a top coat applied.

At first I thought this could be similar to Essie's Action from the Poppy-Razzi collection, but online swatches of Action look to have more yellow to it...  But I think Clementine is pretty darn close to Essie Fear or Desire.

Do you think these 2 are close versions of each other?

P.S.  The main reason that I am posting this is because, while I am appalled by what Sinful Colors recently did to fellow bloggers (if you don't know, just Google Sinful Colors stealing bloggers photos and all kinds of links should pop up), my main goal is to share reasonably priced polishes that I love which compare closely color-wise to more expensive polish brands.  I am all about budget-friendly products.  And I also already had this post ready to post before the scandal hit.
