OPI I am what I amethyst vs Essie Virgin snow

It’s time for another comparison swatch! This time I’m showing you OPI’s I am what I amethyst, from this years Soft shades collection, and Essie’s Virgin snow, from last years winter collection.

Here you see two coats of each polish on my nails. Both polishes are pretty similar in the formula.

On it’s own I am what I amethyst looks purple, but compared to Virgin snow it looks more blue. Pretty similar polishes, but not dupes as you see in the pictures.

Which one do you prefer?
