Zoya Sansa & OPI First Class Desires Comparison

Press Sample

I recently posted the Zoya Ignite Collection review which contains the gorgeous new Fall shade Sansa.  When I was posting sneak peeks of the OPI Gwen Stefani Holiday 2014 Collection last night, one shade in particular (First Class Desires) had a few people asking “Is that a dupe for Zoya Sansa?” so I figured a comparison post was in order.  At the time I was asked, I knew it was close but wasn’t sure how close.


I’m going to go ahead and spoil it already.  Are these dupes? No.  Not exactly.  Are they close enough to justify purchasing only 1?  In my opinion.. yes.  If I went out with the mani you are about to see, most people glancing at it would not be able to really tell.  So in that sense, it could be a dupe.  But if you are extremely technical, then it’s not.


You can see from this photo the index and ring finger are more purple as far as the base color goes, while middle and pinkie are more deep eggplant.  That’s really the only difference.  Both have the same gorgeous shimmer, and about the same amount as well.  Both are opaque (and gorgeous) in just 2 coats.



So which is Zoya Sansa and which is OPI?

Zoya Sansa is more purple in the base while OPI First Class Desires is more of a deep eggplant.  Both gorgeous, and if you complete collections like I do (I’m serious, I’ve bought downright hideous colors JUST because it completes a collection and not because I’m going to wear it) then you need both.

If you are on a budget, or don’t like having similar shades… then you can pick which one strikes you most (or you can find as a better deal) and snag that one.

Hope this helped some of you!

Thanks for doing this! I love the colors but since I already own the Zoya, I think my wallet will insist on skipping the OPI this year! Your swatches of the whole OPI collection were gorgeous!!

How close area these to OPI’s It’s My Year from the Miss Universe collection? That new OPI looks so similar to me. I really like the darker eggplant color of the OPI over the Zoya polish.

It’s my year is a much lighter purple, but same shimmer type!

It’s essential to have a clean skin before applying a tanner.
You can buy swimsuits in floral and island prints to add more fun to your look at the beach.
Suede is less durable than other varieties of Buffalo Leather and is cheaper because many pieces
of suede can be split from a single piece of the hide.
