Happee Wednesday Lovelies,
I am really starting to love these posts, they are really fun. I get to dig through my stash and pull out all the polishes that look the same and then try them out. Its like a fun little treasure hunt!
Today I have Catrice “Lilactric” vs. Essence “Hello Marshmallow”.
The polishes are both of the light purple variety and look pretty identical in bottle form.
But on my nails there is a difference…
Catrice “Lilactric” has a yellow shimmer laced into the polish where as Essence “Hello Marshmallow” is full on creme.
“Lilactric” required 2 even coats, but also a steady hand because of the shimmer its prone to leaving stroke marks. “Hello Marshmallow” is also 2 coats but much easier to apply due to it being a creme polish (That’s why I love Creme polishes, they are not as finicky).
Dry time they are pretty much on par with each other.
- Catrice “Lilactric” retails for R44.95 at Dischem Stores or can be bought online fromKalahari.com, Spree & Takealot.
- Essence “Hello Marshmallow” retails for R22.95 and can be found at Clicks, Dischem & Kalahari.com
