Comparison OPI Not Like The Movies vs. Catrice Iron Mermaiden

OPI Not Like the Movies vs. Catrice Iron Mermaiden (sun)

Dear Lacqueristas

Catrice just released their new range of polish ( here and here) and one shade that immidiately caught my eye was this awesome duochrome that reminds me a lot of OPI's Not Like the Movies (original version) from Katy Perry's collection.
Let's see how they compare:

OPI Not Like the Movies vs. Catrice Iron Mermaiden (no direct light)
 As you have seen in the pictures above, Not Like the Movies has tiny glitters in it's formula whereas Iron Mermaiden does not.
Besides that there's a frost alarm for Iron Mermaiden. Brush stroke galore, while the base color looks quite similar to NLtM the formula of Catrice's IM is defenitely harder to work with.
Duochrome wise, OPI wins hands down.

Here's a lil' video to show the polish in motion:

Did you get hold of an original bottle of Not Like The Movies? And how do you like it? Do you know of a dupe?

Hasta la vista, Laqueristas!
