Essence- Choose Me! vs. Zoya- Charla

Morning! Happy Friday! As promised I have a comparison between Essence- Choose Me! and Zoya- Charla. Surprise, they are similar. I'm not going to say exact dupes because Charla is a little less green and a little more blue, which you can see best in the second picture. They are close enough though in my opinion if you have one you don't necessarily need the other...unless you are like me and need them all lol. The formula on both was pretty similar, needed 3 coats for full opacity. I didn't like either one more than the other! The only main differences are the size of the bottle and the price. Zoya retails for $7 and is in the standard size bottles you can buy it on their website Zoya.com or at some select salons and stores like Planet Beauty or Ulta (though I don't believe they have this collection at Ulta). Essence comes in a much smaller bottle and retails for $0.99. It can be purchased at Ulta stores or Ulta.com

  2. That's close enough for me! I definitely don't need both (but it would be nice to have the Essence as a back up).

  4. I am so glad these are close. I have really been wanting one of the many polishes that this color is... OPI Catch Me In your Net, Zoya Charla, Orly Haleys Comet. But I DID pick up that Essence the other day, so I am glad that they are similar! Thanks for the comparison!
