Ocean vs. Out Of My Mind & Dirty Berry vs. Mad About You

When I bought some of the new Catrice and Essence polishes, there was one that made me doubt straight away, because in the store it reminded me a lot of another polish already. On the wheel they looked so alike that I decided to compare them.
So here we have Catrice Dirty Berry vs. H&M Mad About You.

Mad About You is slightly more blue, which especially the nail wheel pic shows, but it's barely visible irl. The wannabe holographic in these is the same. For me they're so close that I'd call these a dupe anyways, when I had them on my nails I couldn't really keep them apart.
Both 3 coats, no top coat.

The pictures were made in the last bit of evening sun yesterday, so the color looks a bit different thanks to the warm light of the sun. But it gives a good idea of how these 2 compare anyways :)

When I posted about some of the new Essence polishes, Deborah from Love. Varnish, chocolate and more... was wondering how Essence Out Of My Mind compared to Gosh Ocean. Now these are clearly no dupes, but to give a better idea of the difference, I just compared these 2 as well.
In some angles their colors can be quite alike, but Ocean is more frosty and shows brushstrokes better, and Out Of My Mind is deeper blue and has a gorgeous green shimmer that Ocean lacks.
Both 3 coats, no top coat.

Conslusion: if you have Mad About You, you won't need Dirty Berry. If you have Ocean and like such colors, get Out Of My Mind as well :)

Enjoy your Sunday!
