Dupe Alert!?: OPI Casino Royale vs. Kleancolor Plum

Hey guys, so I was looking through my collection and noticed that quite a few of my polishes looked like each other.

The two polishes that I'm comparing tonight are OPI's Casino Royale and Kleancolor's Plum.

 Bottle Comparison:  They look very similar, but Casino Royale does look a bit "brighter" than Plum.

On the nail:  In person the two colors look a lot more similar on the nail, but in the pictures you can kind of see a difference between the two polishes.  Can you tell which one is which?

Here I have a light directly over my nails.  Now can you tell which is which?

I applied OPI's Casino Royale on my index and ring finger and Kleancolor's Plum on my middle and pinkie finger!  Did you get it right?

In regular lighting you can't really see a difference unless you stare at fingers for a all the time and analyze the polish.  OPI Casino Royale is a tad brighter than Kleancolor Plum, which is more of a muted greyed plum.

 In this picture you can really see that Kleancolor Plum has some grey in it.  

Overall:  These colors aren't exact dupes, but I don't think you need both of them.  If you want to save a few bucks then go for the Kleancolor shade.  If you prefer the brighter plum color and don't mind spending $8 then go for the OPI shade.  Both polishes only took two coats to achieve full opacity.  One thing that I didn't like about KC Plum is that the polish did seem a little patchy but I think my polishing skills were to blame. : P

So which of the two do you prefer?  

Thanks for reading; follow and share if you like!
