Did you have a good weekend? I had the best time on Saturday with the #BWB girls. As usual I laughed till I ached and had great conversations. Simply the best.
I got China Glaze – Just be-claws from acidicice as a birthday gift and around the sane time I got China Glaze – Ruby pumps. Before this, acidicice and I had many conversations wondering how similar – or not – the two actually were. So today I am finally comparing the two.
This is 2 coats of China Glaze – Ruby pumps on my pinky and index and 2 coats of China Glaze – Just be-claws on my middle and ring. All of these without topcoat. I think the difference between my pinky and ring finger is the most accurate as far as colour difference is concerned. Ruby pumps is a little more deeper red than just be-claws. For me, Just be-claws is slightly more orange toned but this is only obvious when they are next to each other. Both of them have a sparkle but Ruby pumps is packed with red glitter in a red base. Just be-claws has a red sparkle but for ME it looks like a gold toned red. When I remove it, it looks like here is a hint of gold. Both have really great formula and opacity.
These are obviously not dupes. Do you need both? I am inclined to say yes but this shouldn’t come as a surprise. If you are someone that thinks red polish is red polish then you probably don’t need both but they are definitely different. Go on, get both!
What do you think? Do you prefer one over the other? Do you have either of them?
