It’s weekend! Thank goodness right? I actually have quite a busy day today so I just have a quick comparison for you between two silver textures.
Here I have 2 coats of Rimmel – Shooting star on my middle and ring fingers and 2 coats of Essence – Be my lucky star on my pinky and index. When I applied the first coat, I found Essence to be much more sheer than the Rimmel. I also initially thought that it was a slightly different silver tone. After the second coat I thought they both had really good coverage but I might be inclined to add a third coat to the Essence. That being said, I also found Essence to be thinner and therefore a third coat would have been easy to do without ending with clumpy think polish.
In effect, they are both silver texture polishes but I did notice a difference in the glitter. Rimmel is made up of small and bigger silver glitter. Essence however also has some larger holographic glitter in it. If you look at my pinky for example, in the centre, closer to my tip, you can see a little piece of glitter that looks like it is reflecting blue ish. That would be one of them. It isn’t very obvious until it is. Does that make sense?
I actually really liked both of these but I think I do prefer the Rimmel one without the holo glitter for the pure silver texture part. I do love the Essence for the extra blingy part though. I am not sure how noticeable this difference would be to most people. Does something like that matter to you?
Do you have either of these? Which one would you prefer? At the end of the day, they are both silver texture polishes. It is so strange that at one point I coveted a silver texture so much and now look at the options! 😉 Have a lovely weekend folks and stay safe. See you on the flip side.
