Essence Irreplaceable VS Catrice Clayton My Hero

While I was applying Irreplaceable to my nails a couple of days ago, I thought of Catrice's Clay-ton My Hero nail polish. It's similar: taupe color with golden shimmer. Well, the shimmer in Catrice is really fine and the one in Essence is more like flakies, but still. They deserve to be compared side by side.

They might look like non-identical twins in the bottles, but once you apply them... kaboom!

I used 2 coats of each and they look completely different. And my favorite? Irreplaceable layered over Clay-ton My Hero. Have I told you how much I hate dashes in nail polish names? Damn OPI!

Catrice, Clay-ton My Hero, 2 coats + Essence, Irreplaceable, 1 coat

Which is your favorite: Catrice, Essence or layered look?

Thanks for looking!


  1. I have both of them! But I don't like how the Catrice one looks an my nails... I will never wear it again!
    But I really like the essence one. and this is what I prefere! :)

  2. I think I like the Catrice better. I don't think I could pull off the Essence, even though it's beautiful in itself. I guess I'm just too gloomy for it. :)

  3. I just can't get Essence in England. I do have Clay-ton though after my last holiday in Croatia. And hurrah! I'm going to Croatia again in August. This time I will spend serious money on Catrice and Essence. My partner won't approve but I love these brands!

  4. ta zadnja kombinacija mi je ful lepa:) pa ne morem se nagledat tvojih nohtov...res mas lepe

  5. I love both of them, but ya know me, I am a sparkle girl. So Irreplaceable is just perfection <3 !
    Both look great on you btw.

  6. I wouldn't have expected Clay-ton My Hero to come out like that! I love it, although my favourite look is the layered one :) thanks for sharing!

  7. I vote for the Catrice. I don't get either of these brands in Canada though.

  8. I vote for layered look ;) Have a great day... But all just look so great;)

  9. I prefer Irreplaceable, guess I am the only one though!

  10. I like both of these. I do have a thing for shimmer.
