Index and ring: SinfulColors Innocent, Middle and pinky: OPI Who the Shrek Are You?
SinfulColors Innocent: The difference between the two in the bottle is miniscule, but you can see on the nail that Innocent is a bit brighter, lighter, and yellow. It applies slightly more opaque than Shrek, but the Sinful bottle always leaves something to be desired. It always finds a way to leak polish into the cap, even when stored upright it seems, and it makes it hard to open. It is only $2 at Walgreens, though, which is quite a savings over the $8.50 you'll pay for the OPI.
OPI Who The Shrek Are You? - This is a bit more sheer, and slightly deeper in tone. It's got a bit more green and strikes me as quite a bit warmer than Innocent. This one is my favorite for a Shrek green though, it is a little more "off" and interesting, but Innocent holds it's own as a unique bright.

I originally was going to pass on this entire collection. I am a big Shrek fan, but my favorite character is Puss in Boots, and before this collection was released I thought I might get a polish if it were named after him. What's With the Cattitude just didn't excite me. Much though I love light blue polishes, I do have a ton of them, and the name doesn't explicitly refer to Puss by name, so I passed. This Shrek-inspired green is one of those polishes that you either love or you hate, and I love it. I always thought that "off" colors like this looked horrid on me, but after my experience with the very similar SinfulColors Innocent, I thought I'd give it a try. Seeing it in person in the store pushed me over the edge, I snatched it up immediately. Innocent is definitely in the same family, but slightly lighter and softer in tone. It's got a bit more yellow as well. If you like the Shrek shade but it's just a tad too warm or green for you, the SinfulColors might be a better, and cheaper, alternative.
This polish applies very nicely; pretty standard for the newer OPI formula. The first coat can be a bit streaky, and make the nails showing underneath have an orange sort of tone. Coat two evens everything out nicely, but it still seemed a bit warmer than bottle color, so I applied a third coat and that brought it up to the wonderfully vibrant Shrek-y green you see in the bottle. I apply thin coats, so take that into consideration. I think with two moderate coats it would be fine. I added a coat of Seche Vite topcoat to the top, and I am absolutely in love with the results. The first two photos are with flash, the other two are in natural light near a window.
