Hi everyone! :)
You guys have asked about how Essence Lilac (Lil@c) from the new Holographics collection looks compared to Essence Where Is The Party? from their permanent color & go nail polishes.

Base coat and top coat
I haven’t used a top coat or base coat in these pictures.

Both Essence Where Is The Party and Nubar Peacock Feathers are no dupes for Lilac. Where Is The Party is much, much lighter and it’s purple base almost taupe-ish while the green duochrome is warmer and stronger. The base color of Nubar Peacock Feathers is much more cooler toned than the base color of Lilac while the green duochrome of Lilac is cooler toned than the green duochrome of Peacock Feathers.
The formula of Where Is The Party is ok-ish and you have to apply it carefully to avoid brushstrokes.

If you love duochromes and already have Peacock Feathers and Where Is The Party you definitely should check out Lilac. Peacock Feathers and Where Is The Party are no dupes.

Thanks for looking and have a great Sunday! ♥ :)

  1. Really useful comparison, thank you!! I own Where is the party and love duochromes so I will definitely check for Lilac (hoping Holographics will be sold in Italy, too).

    • Dann bräuchte ich aber mehr Finger SorayaLovesLife. 😉
      Fotos mit Daumen im Bild schauen immer seltsam aus und da Iron Mermaiden und Not Like The Movies zu weit weg von Lilac sind hab ich sie weggelassen.

    • Iron Mermaiden von Catrice ist viel heller und sheerer als Essence Where is the party, sie sind sehr unterschiedlich (habe die beiden verglichen, allerdings nur 1 Schicht jeweils).

      Danke für diesen tollen Vergleich – werde Ausschau nach Lilac halten, einfach nur wunderschön!
