The original formula for Sally Hansen Pacific Blue was so fantastic. It’s a pity they changed it up – and in the process completely changed the colour. Why do you do that, polish makers??

When I picked up Essie Pret-a-Surfer I thought it may be close to a dupe for Pacific Blue (original.)

Although these two are similar, they are definitely not dupes. Pret-a-Surfer is definitely a more muted blue and a more dusty finish than the bright creme of Pacific Blue. The formula on both is fantastic, though so anyone looking for a slightly more muted Pacific Blue I think you’d love Pret-a-Surfer!
