Comparison: China Glaze Awakening & NYC Wing It Wine

I've had this couple for a while and every time I looked at them I thought: this two must be dupes.  In person in the bottles they look very similar, but not once applied.  They have something that distinguish from one another, making each of them unique within my stash; but I like them both.

China Glaze Awakening: from the 2010 Halloween collection, its a mauve/pink with super elegant flashes of gold.  It gets opaque enough with two coats.  I could not take pictures of it, but over black or burgundy base this one is a stunner!

NYC Wing It Wine: Kind of goes on the same color range as Awakening, but to me it has more of a copper & purple than pink hue to it.  It applies super smooth and you can almost get full opacity with one coat.  This one over black gets an unexpected olive flash that looks super cool. This one reminds a bit of Orly Oui, but without the shimmer and less purple hue.

both polishes are a dream to apply and I think they go with my skin tone. 
Verdict: a draw!
