OPI vs Bettina (Comparison, Review & Swatches)

My last post was showing Bettina in Flip Flops {Resort Collection}. It is a dark lilac and reminded my boyfriend of OPI's Planks A Lot {Pirates Of The Caribbean}. So this is going to be the comparison of these two nail polishes.

Here is a comparison of the nail polish bottles together. 
With Flash:
 Without Flash:
Bettina is on my ring finger, while OPI is on my middle finger
Formula: One difference I noticed with OPI is that it was not as opaque as Bettina. I needed three to four coats of OPI Planks A Lot for it to really show true to bottle. Bettina Flip Flops on the other hand just needed two in order to even the color out. 
Color Comparison: Even though both these nail polishes are in the same color family their is a noticeable difference. As you can see Bettina Flip Flops is darker than OPI Planks A Lot. For those wondering Bettina retails around $2.00-3.00 ($2.26 in walmart) while OPI retails around $8.50.
Recommendation: I really like both shades so I would definitely buy them again. But if you do not like having to put multiple coats for a color to show true to the bottle I suggest you skip out on OPI Planks A Lot and get Bettina Flip Flops. If you would prefer a lighter lilac then I would suggest OPI Planks A Lot. While if you want a dark lilac I would suggest getting Bettina Flip Flops.
