I have another Nail Polish Battle for you guys today! This time it's between two beautiful red/orange.
Zoya Rocha* is from summer 2014 collection Tickled & Bubbly and OPI My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours* from spring 2013 collection Euro Centrale. They do look pretty identical in the bottle, so we'll see how they look on nail!
On nail they do look really similar too. There's maybe just a slight color difference as Rocha looks a tad lighter than Paprika, but the difference is really really small. They do vary a bit formulawise as Rocha is a bit thicker and Paprika seems to be just a bit runny and sheer. Therefore I think that Rocha applies a little bit better, but that of course depends how you like your polish formula. As Rocha is thicker it also coveres a bit more than Paprika. I only needed two coats of Rocha whereas I had to apply three coats of Paprika. But then again, I think my coats weren't even between these two since the formula of them is different.
I think the color of these is really lovely bright reddish orange and eventhough they do have slightly different formula, they both are really quality polishes. They both have that tiny shimmer in them and that probably helps to make these easier to apply than regular cremes. That shimmer doesn't show up on nail though, not with Rocha nor with Paprika. They are both lovely and you're safe with either one of these, but you certainly won't need them both!
Final Verdict: Since I liked Zoya's formula a bit better AND I pretty much always choose Zoya over OPI, My Paprika Is Hotter Than Yours has to go and Rocha will stay.
Which one do you guys prefer?
