Comparison: Pure Pearlfection & Morgan Le Fay

Hi everyone!!

I have a comparison post for you today!  Some time ago my polish friend, Crystal, asked me to compare A-England Morgan Le Fay and Essie Pure Pearlfection.  She already had the A-England and was considering getting the Essie.  Take a look at the pic below to see if you notice a difference!


Artificial Light.  Layered over Orly Frolic.
Did you notice anything?  I layered Pure Pearlfection over the index and ring fingers and Morgan Le Fay over the middle and pinky fingers.  They are very similar, but Morgan Le Fay has a more dense shimmer.   Here's a bottle shot:

Just by looking at the bottle you can see that Morgan Le Fay is a lot thicker than Pure Pearlfection.  You can also tell which I use more right now, lol.

Here are a few more pictures with the polishes layered over Frolic:

Since these two are so close, I think if you have one, you really don't need the other.  Also, to just note the prices, Essie is usually sold for about $8 and can even be found for as low as $5.99. A-England on the other hand is about $13.

Thanks for reading!  I hope you found this post helpful.

  1. Thanks for the great comparison! They really do look quite similar. Saves me some cash since I've already got Pure Pearlfection. :)

  2. Aw, man, I walked right past Pure Pearlfection just last week and didn't get it. Going to cross my fingers like mad and hope they still have it in stock because I love the effect. Thanks for the swatches!

  5. There are a lot of dupes lately. I find myself being patient and just wait and 9 times out of 10 you can find a cheaper dupe. Also I believe SH has a dupe of this one too.

    1. Have not seen the SH dupe for this - in fact with all my CND effects, I don't have a dupe for Essie's Pure Pearlfection.

    2. Haven't heard of the SH. You're so right so many cheap alternatives.

  8. They are really similar, but I was able to tell the difference. I think they're both really pretty but I think I prefer the Essie for it's price.

    1. I totally agree. The difference is visible, but you could definitely do with just one.

  10. I only realised you used two different polishes after reading the post. They look very much alike but both are great :)

  11. I adore Essie's Pure Pearlfection and think it's been a real sleeper of those release in the LuxEffects collection. I think many worry it's going to turn a lovely mani into an old fashion icky pearl coating - it's totally not what this Effect does at all. Looks wonderful over Frisky which is a biggie fav of mine from Orly summer 2011. Highly suggest to those who have been into glitter toppers to give 'em a rest and opt for some softer toppers like Essie's Pure Pearlfection.

  12. Great comparison! Thanks! I'll stick with a0England because they're Cruelty-free and Essie isn't, but it's good to know how close they are. So I don't feel like I'm missing anything not having both.

  13. Thanks for the reminder of the cruelty-free status. That is something I don't mind paying extra for.
