I recently reviewed OPI's Peace & Love & OPI (which you can see swatched here) which is an AMAZING duochrome that shifts from dark grey to teal to deep purple. A Facebook reader asked me if it had any dupes, so I swatched it against everything I had and found no dupes!
Then I saw promo images of Essie Fall 2013 and knew I found my dupe! One eBay order later and I present to you - OPI Peace & Love & OPI vs. Essie For the Twill of It. 100% dupes, though the formula on the OPI was smoother and easier to apply than the Essie.

OPI Peace & Love & OPI vs. Essie For the Twill of It - 100% dupes! I will say, however, that the formula on the OPI was smoother and easier to apply than the Essie.
Here are my original comparisons I was going to post - see how dramatic the color shift is?
What do you think of the dupes? Which one will you buy?
