a-England 'Princess Tears' & OPI 'DS Diamond'

Hello Readers,

Today, I have a comparison post between a-England 'Princess Tears' from the The Legend collection and OPI 'DS Diamond'. When I got the a-England polish I automatically knew I had to do a comparison post! I'd say that the aE is a cooler purple with a finer holo and of course it has a pink-purple flash that the OPI doesn't possess. Also, the aE formula is more opaque. I used two coats for both.

And with flash...
I'd say they're both different enough but if you have one you probably don't need the other. You can purchase a-England polishes directly here priced at $14.22 when converted to USD (£9) and they ship to the US for free! OPI 'DS Diamond' is considered a 'htf' polish and can be found on eBay from anywhere to $15-$35+. 

What do you guys think? Own either of these babies? I love them both! Ahhh.... pretties!

Cheers,
Bridget

These look lovely, they're similar but you can see the subtle differences. I had my doubts about Princess Tears, but adding it to my list because of your swatch!

Both are amazing and I´m glad one (the A England) can be easily purchase. I think I like a little more Princess Tears because it looks more smooth on the nail
