China Glaze Autumn Nights 2013 - Queen B and Essie - No More Film

I just could not resist when I stumbled upon a few of the China Glaze Autumn Nights Collection.....I just had to buy them!
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:

It is a very nice dark and dusty purple-blue creme. It is pigmented like crazy and I only needed ONE coat!
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:

My pointer and ringfinger are Essie No More Film and my middle and pinkie are Queen B. In most lights there is no difference, in low light NMF seems to be a tiny bit more purple and less dusty then Queen B.
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.
