Happy Friday! Long weekend to boot as well. I can’t tell you how much I need this weekend. We are still struggling with the dogs and it’s cold. Hopefully the weekend will bring lots of relaxing and a way to sort the dogs out once and for all. In the mean time, just a short post today.
I’ve mentioned before how Essence ‘updates’ existing polishes and continue to use the same number and name even though it does look slightly different. I have a few of these ‘updates’ in my collection as usually they are both stunning. I have another one to show you today. I loved the original Date in the moonlight, until I saw the new one. It is so gorgeous and even though, in my opinion, they changed the colour completely, I think it is stunning. They probably could’ve kept both in the collection though but tell me what you think.
I am wearing 2 coats of both the old and the new Date in the moonlight here, with no topcoat. The old version (on my pinky and index) is a dark blue / black base with lighter blue / turquoise glitter. The new version ( on middle and ring) is roughly the same base colour but has silver and small glitter (shimmer). (If you have Essence – Over the rainbow, it’s very similar but the dark version of that). Here is a close up. (I’m sorry about the crazy reflections)
What do you think? Which one do you prefer? Like I said, I love both but the new one is just so gorgeous. And Essence has quite a few others with the blue glitter / shimmer so I don’t think it is a total loss.
Thanks for reading,
