Butterflies and Dragonflies...and Guessing the SH Prism!

This weeks FB Adventures in Stamping challenge was Butterflies and Dragonflies.  I must confess; I did this mani back in April, just hadn't gotten around to posting it.  As luck would have it, it fit the theme of Butterflies and Dragonflies so it was the mani I shared for the challenge....which worked out well all around!

Started with a base of two coats of two coats of Sally Hansen Prism unnamed polish that says 06 on the cap. 

These polishes may be old but have some very pretty holo!

Added a funky french gradient at the tips using Emily de Molly Super Vixen.

Stamped using a variety of images from unnamed OMG XL plate using white Konad special polish.

Topped with SV.

It was kind of bugging me that I didn't know the name of this Sally Hansen polish.  It had a number on the back label, x224674000, which I Googled, but unfortunately, it didn't really help pinpoint which polish it was as its a generic number on a few of these old Prisms.  So I thought I would check through my stash of SH Prisms to see if I have one that has an actual name on it, that it matched.

These were the ones that were the closest; the bottle on the left is Blush Diamond; no. 6 is middle, and on the right is Ruby Presents, which is no. 5399-08.

I also know from Googling, that 4674-06 on various Sally Hansen Prism guides is Ruby Sapphire; however, I do know that this one isn't it Ruby Sapphire as I have a bottle of it and they aren't even close. 

I'm saying these two are prettyyyyy close; the unnamed SH 06 and SH Ruby Presents...I don't know why it dawned on me until now that I should have swatched these two to see how close they are on the nail rather than just a bottle comparisons as sometimes that is more telling...d'oh! But these two look pretty close in the bottle comparison, maybe even the same, none the less.  

What do you think?  Do you think they a match or do you think it's another Prism?  And if another one, which one do you think it may be?

Thanks for looking!
