Essie Mint Candy Apple vs Ciate Pepperminty

I recently purchased Essie's mint candy apple and noticed it was of a similar shade to Ciate pepperminty. Have any of you noticed this? 

When I bought Essie's mint candy apple  I thought it would have been a different shade. I cannot describe what kind of shade, but I knew that when I applied it to my nails it wasn't what I had expected. 

Here I have mint candy apple on my little to middle fingers and Ciate pepperminty on my index finger. I really love Ciate pepperminty, but looking at this picture it doesn't look all that great as it's patchy in places where as mint candy apple looks flawless. 

I like both of them equally, however, as I wore mint candy apple I began to like the colour more and more. I wasn't sure of it at first. 

Which one do you prefer? Do you have any mint candy apple dupes?
