A quick post form the vault today as I sort out all my holiday stuff, like unpacking, washing, picking which nail polish to wear first etc etc
This is form the soon to be (if not already) discontinued Catrice line of nail polish. In 2013 they are relaunching the whole polish line and some old favourites get a new name and we get a whole lot of new lovelies. Anyway, this is George Blueney, a midnight blue polish with a hint of a shimmery duochrome shift.
I found the formula a bit waterey on this one, it took a while to build up the colour and what you see above is three coats over a Nailtiques base of Formula 2. The colour look so lush and lovely in the bottle but it doesn’t translate as well onto the nail. A real shame as its a beauty in the bottle. Even a nice coat of Out the Door top coat didn’t bring the bling. The top coat also made the polish shrink slightly and you can see this in the images.
What did I like, apart from the colour in the bottle, is the brush. The Catrice brush is similar to the tapered Dior brush, easy to use and good for keeping polish away from your cuticles.
So for those of us in the UK, Catrice is not readily available to us. You need to European buddy or a short break to Spain to fill the need. If you are lucky enough to be in Europe, they are very reasonable and have a super wider make up range.
