As some of you already noticed, new Catrice shade Hip Queens Wear Blue Jeans looks a lot like new version of Essence Underwater polish.
I have really quick comparison for you today … in case you have one and are wondering whether you need the other one too. : silly:
If we compare the bottles – we see that shimmer is a little bit more noticeable in Catrice version, but otherwise they look almost the same.
After I applied two layers (+ top coat) – I can not tell them apart.
Conclusion – if you have one you do not need the other.
Which one to buy if you do not have either one? Though call – my Underwater already separated so I had to add mixing balls and shake hard to return it to original state, but it applied better than Catrice one.
Interestingly enough, I mostly reach for Hip Queens Wear Blue Jeans. I used it more than 3 times in the last few weeks. But even-though I like almost invisible shimmer in polishes, I wish it would be more visible in this shade … because this shimmer is simply BEAUTIFUL.
For the end I have for you one of the older konadicures made on 3-4 day old application of Hip Queens Wear Blue Jeans … something for those who want to know how good is staying power of Catrice polishes on my nails.

Thanks a lot for the comparison. I only have the Essence polish, but I like the colour a lot. Application is good and i only need one coat. But I can also see a bit of a separation, I have to shake it from time to time.
ja imam Hip queens i jako mi se svidja, a i draze mi je sto ima vise mililitara od underwatera :yes:
Super, hvala za primerjavo! Me je zanimalo, kako blizu sta si, ker se je govorilo, da sta dvojčka. :)
Celo enojajčna sta. :biggrin:
‘thanks for the comparation i wanted actually a cheaper version of hips jeans and got 04Oh Bear of the Berlin collection of essence i think they are almost the also , but if i did new i did bought underwater instead.
Unfortunately we still don’t have Berlin, so I never saw that one IRL. :hmm:
Thanks for the comparison! I’ve been wondering some time, now I don’t have to buy the other bottle :)
I think one will suffice. :biggrin:
funny!! they are dupes I think!
They are dupes. :yes:
tako mi je lijepo na drugima gledati plave lakove, a na sebe kad ih stavim ne držim ih duže od 2 sata!
To se samo moraš navići. :silly:
hvala na usporedbi, uštedjela si mi kupovinu catrice laka :thumb:
u bočici se nazire shimmer ali na noktu ga nema… i stamping mi se sviđa :thumb:
