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