Catrice - Genius In The Bottle & Comparison

Catrice recently replaced some products out of their range for new ones, about 25 %. So tonight I went to several drugstores where they sell Catrice, and found out they were taking care of it at that moment. Since they weren't done yet, and I was cold and had to go back home to study, I just grabbed some of the polishes that were already there. 

Catrice has also improved their brush, it became larger. I think I like it, but I have to get used to it first. You only need two streaks to cover a nail. 

When I looked at Catrice's press release photo's, 'Genius In The Bottle' was my favourite, so I was glad I was able to find that one. 

Here it is! Definitely a duochrome. I have this feeling it's some kind of replacement for the discontinued 'Iron Mermaiden', also a duochrome, but the colours are way different. It changes from copper to green to bronze... Very pretty. I keep staring at it and turning my nails into different angles, even when I was taking a shower, lol. Also, the name of this polishes reminds me of that song called 'Genie in a bottle' from Christina Aguilera. No idea if it has anything to do with it.

I thought Nubar's Wildlife might be similar to Genius In The Bottle, so I decided to do a comparison.

The formula turns out to be way different. Fortunately, neither of them are streaky, which I experience a lot when applying a duochrome. Genius In The Bottle contains more shimmer and less duochrome than Wildlife. I actually don't think I can choose between these two, because Wildlife has a stronger duochrome effect, but Genius In The Bottle turns out to look warmer.

So, what do you think? Would you buy both of them or do you have one of them?
