Happy Friday! This week has flown by! Did you have a good week? I hope you have a fabulous weekend planned as well. I am hoping to catch up on some work and do a lot of relaxing. I have a BOX full of new polishes to play with and start swatching. I also a bunch of sewing to do. I’m excited!
A few weeks ago I mentioned that I had 2 Essence – Free hugs polishes and that they were different colours. One is from the older ‘Colour and go’ collection and one is from the ‘The Gel’ collection. I always think its such a gas when I end up with polishes with the same name and even more so when it is from the same brand. Let me show you what they look like.
Essence – Free hugs (Colour and go)
This is 2 coats with no topcoat. It is a beautiful light pink creme with a stunning formula. This was one of the first polishes I ever bought and still one of my favourites. I even have a backup, which is a good thing considering it has been discontinued. The formula is stunning and it applies beautifully. It really is a pity that it won’t be around but I do suspect I spotted a close shade in the new The Gel range. Perhaps another comparison?
Essence – Free hugs (The Gel)
This is 2 coats with no topcoat. It’s a beautiful brown creme but it is a shade of brown that is luxurious and classy. It reminds me of Louis Vuitton for some reason. The formula on this one is gorgeous and buttery and it is so opaque it is almost a one coater. Definitely a favourite in the new collection.
What do you think? Do you have either of these? Do you have a preference? I actually think they would go together really well as well and I am definitely going to do some nail art using these soon. Do you have polishes with the same name? Have a fabulous weekend and I’ll see you on the other side!
Thanks for reading,
