China Glaze Snow vs China Glaze Snow

Oh yes, you heard right.  Snow vs Snow.  In summer 2009, China Glaze came out with 50 polishes called the Specialty Collection - also called the Glitters and Cremes collection.  I ended up buying every single one of them - in phases from Head2Toe Beauty.  Imagine my surprise when in the winter 2010 collection, there was another Snow.
Snow 1 is from the Winter 2010 Collection, Snow 2 is from the Summer 2009 Collection.  The obvious difference is that Snow 1 has a silver cap and Snow 2 has a black cap.  I also secretly feel like Snow 2 is a little bit brighter than Snow 1.

Bottoms of both bottles.  As you can see the number 818 is the same, but the 5 digit code has changed.  The original (Snow 2) was 80411, but the new Snow (Snow 1) is listed as 25176.

I used a base of Seche Natural for both colors, 2 coats, and a top of Seche Vite.  Both formulas were slightly runny - not unmanageable but just thinner than I would have preferred.

Can you tell a difference?  At all?  Me either.  They look pretty much the same - and I don't think anyone would notice a difference.

The shade tells the same story.  So are the bottles exactly alike - I'm saying yes, just different 5-digit codes.  A white creme is a white creme.  ^_^
