With all the nail polish bottles and shades, only two of them caught my eye when I walked into the store yesterday. One of them is fairly new Catrice shade from the core line called It's All I Can Blue and the other is a shade from the Essence Class of 2013 trend edition called Blues of Being Cool. They're both gorgeous blue cremes and since I love ''weird'' blues, I thought I would show both of them together and maybe make it easier for you to decide for one of them - or both.
Color drops - as accurate as possible:
Catrice is brighter and more saturated and Essence is dustier and leaning towards being purple. Perfect cornflower (Catrice) and periwinkle (Essence) cremes.
Catrice, It's All I Can Blue, 2 coats
First of all let me tell you I still hate the new Catrice brush. It's bushy, uneven in length and it looks like one of my cats chewed on it. It's not impossible to paint your nails with it, but it is challenging to do it without mess - at least for me. I want the old: flat and neat brush back! Other than that I don't have any major complaints. It's All I Can Blue is opaque in 2 coats and it doesn't take forever to dry. You'll need to add a top coat over it if you'll want a glossy finish, beacuse it dried pretty bleh on me. This one costs ~ 2.59 €.
Essence, Blues of Being Cool, Class of 2013 Trend Edition, 3 coats
Blues of Being Cool is better when it comes to brush quality, but isn't as opaque as Catrice. It took 3 coats for full opacity - although I can deal with it since the color is so gorgeous. This is the only color from the new Class of 2013 trend edition that caught my attention and I suggest you get it if you can. Price: 1.99 €.
Almost perfect match for my new bag. =)
Which one looks better to you?
