Catrice – Dirty Berry

eBay, you are evil. People sell polish on there for WAY more than the retail price. If I pick up a polish for someone I’m happy to take what I paid, plus postage, with a small amount for packaging. I know its a buyers market, but when I can get a polish for 3euros and then see it on eBay for £14 or more, it makes me sad and cross in equal measure.

Anyway, in my recent trip to the Spanish Islands, I was able to find some European Nail Polish. This is Dirty Berry, by the brand Catrice. This colour is going to remain part of the core 40 polishes for the first half of 2012, at least that what my brochure says.

Firstly, WOW. Images do not do this colour any kind of justice. Its wonderful, purple, dusky, showing, shiny, sparkly and simply lovely. There is also a holographic glint that I was completely unaware of….

Formula was good. You can do three thin coats or two slightly thicker ones. In fact, I was worried it was going to be a little on the opaque side, but it was perfect. And it dried so quickly.. really quickly. I put on my usual top coat and its still super shiny, in fact I can’t stop looking at my nails.

What do you think? Do you own any Catrice?

  1. I have this and it’s such a great color. Catrice makes great cosmetics. I was so glad my local drugstore started carrying it a few months ago. If you ever need help getting a hold of more Catrice just let me know.
