Hey Lovelies!

Since Essie is now available in most drugstores in Germany, and they have made quite a few changes on the product, I decided I wanna do a little comparison between the two. I chose “Turquoise & Caicos” on the German side and “Who is the Boss?” on the US side.

Let the Games begin…. 🙂

So here they are next to each other. On your left we have “Turquoise & Caicos” and on your right “Who is the Boss?”

There are over 70 colors to choose from in their permanent line over here. Plus several limited editions over the year. Unfortunately we don’t get all the collections they bring out in the US.

The first difference is the little name tag. The German version has it stuck on the bottle cap, the US version on the bottom of the bottle.

But the most noticable difference you can see when you unscrew the bottle.

The brush is much bigger and wider than the one from the US version.  Comparable to the the Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure brushes. I have heard, the small version is also available but just in salons.

The formula has also changed. Most of the colors are “One-Coaters”, except for some of the Soft Shades like “Marshmellow” or “Ballett Slippers”.  They go on very smooth. They stay on my nails for up to 5 days without chipping or any kind of tipwear, depending on the color. Which I think is a great improvement, cause normally nail polish last on me no longer than 2 days.

Here the overview:

US-Version:

+ more collections

+ collections are out earlier

+ the price in online stores is cheaper

– very small brush

– stying power isn’t that great

– sometimes they go on streaky

– buying them online takes some waiting time, due to overseas shipping

 

German Version

+ wider brush makes application easier

+ stay on longer

+ go on more smooth

+ availability is easier

+/- price is higher than in online stores but cheaper than before (before 13,95 € now 7,95 €)

– some colors and collections not available

 

So overall Germany wins with 4.5 to 3 over the USA. Yay!!! 🙂

I really love Essie, so I will still be buying both styles. The simple reason is, that there are so many colors out there, that we don’t have here. 🙂

Hope you liked my little comparison…
