And now let's move on ogling the two next to each other - sorry, another picture spam but there were plenty of angles to cover ;-) - but first up a bottle comparison
and now on to the "real thing":
after all those pictures taken in the sun this is what it looks in the shade:
and indoors in daylight:
…and in artificial light
Ring and index: Cadillacquer I'm The One Who Knows, middle: A England Dragon
I applied two of each of the two polishes. Formula wise they are more or less identical, I wouldn't be able to favour the one or the other, both went on smooth and silky. Dry time of Cadillacquer I'm The One Who Knows is a bit faster.
But then we want to look at the differences in the polish, right? While the base colors certainly are similar the differences lay in the effects - OK so let's have a look at I'm The One Who Knows
looks greyer even charcoal around the edges
has a silvery sheen in the sun
contains green micro glitter particles
has a weaker scattered holo effect
and now on to A England Dragon
is a more yellow toned green
has a holo-depth to it
contains bigger and stronger holo particles
Final thoughts: While I really love I'm The One Who Knows I have to admit A England Dragon continues to hold a cult status in my personal polish ranking. But while Dragon sits closer to my heart I have to admit that I'm The One Who Knows suits my skin tone better as it lacks the yellow tint in the green. The question which one you would need or both really only depends on your preference for finishes and if you love green nail polish like me, I consider them different enough to own both.
I bought Cadillacquer I'm The One Who Knows from Madeleine's own Bigcartel e-shop.
I look forward to reading your comments - I hope this comparison was helpful to you - thanks for visiting!!!
