I will start the little series with a creme: Queen B (which will be a reference to Beyonce and baby Blue I presume...). When I opened the box and I saw this colour my first thought was: "I have already seen this polish before". I know it is a plain creme, dark and dusty blue-purple so that is not so peculiar. Yet......Essie kept popping up in my mind....
First some pics of Queen B:

Upon removal it does not leave smurf fingers, so that is an extra bonus!
Do you see the Essie colour in Queen B yet.....it is Essie No More Film.
They are dupes.
See for yourself:

Essie NMF needed 2 coats to be opaque, so if you do not own the Essie I would recommend the China Glaze. If you have NMF then you do not need Queen B, in my humble opinion.
