Essence Bella - Green Comparison

Ana politely asked me to do a comparison between Essence Bella and Crazy Me from the Crazy About Color Trend Edition. I added Milani's Fresh Teal And Sally Hansen's Mint Sprint which are the closest colors in my green collection.

Here they are (in reversed order) on my nails. I used 2 coats of each, except with Mint Sprint. One coat of Sally Hansen's polish was enough. Impressive!

As you can see, they're all different. Bella doesn't come very close to Crazy Me. Bella applies better and Crazy Me appears to be a tad jelly-ish when compared to the other shades. Both are nice though.
Mint Sprint is lighter and has a yellow undertone. It's a definite quality winner from these. It needs only one coat and I have absolutely nothing bad to say about it.
Fresh Teal by Milani looks a lot like Bella in real life. Since FT is a neon, it photographs more blue-ish, but the difference between it and Bella isn't as noticeable as it is on the photo.

Conclusion: Bella is a great shade and the quality is awesome. You get a great product for less than €2.00. I can only say I highly recommend it. Other shades are very good as well (quality and color wise) and all are worth buying.

Which one is your favorite? Do you own any of them? If yes: do you think the same about the quality of it as I do?

Thanks for taking your time and reading this!
