In these pictures my first two fingers (on the left) are Essie Lapis of Luxury and the two fingers on the right are China Glaze Secret Peri-wink-le. Honestly in these photos you can't even tell that the Essie polish has a jelly-like consistency. They look extremely similar, although China Glaze may be a bit blue-er and a bit brighter, whereas the Essie seems a little washed out. But honestly these are really minute differences. Plus, the China Glaze polish is not only cheaper, but it is a part of China Glaze's core line - so it can be found at any Sally's store. Plus the formula is 109728109230498 times better. I really hated the Essie resort collection. Both this polish and Turquoise and Caicos were really watery, sheer, and uncontrollable (in my opinion). They were just too hard to work with.
