Catrice – Royal REDding

Very quick post for you today – crazy busy week, but trying to keep up with the blog… this is a polish a colleague at work picked me up on a trip to Europe.  It is one of the new 2014 Shades by Catrice from a range called Crushed Crystal.  You can see them all above, aren’t they pretty??

As you can see from the pictures above, these are slightly different to some of the other textured shades I have shared with you. From the bottle, everything looks super sparkly.  On the nail, even when dried, it has the appearance of jam.  Yes jam, as in the stuff you put on your toast or in your porridge.  It is very jelly in finish.  Drying time was average.

Remember no top coat with textured shades, so just base coat of G&G Stuck on Blu! here over a layer of Nailtiques 2.  The sparkly bits do try brighter than the body of the polish so they do leap off the nail at you.  I do quite like this, even though its unlike any other textured shade I have tried.

What do you think?  Good, bad or are you just indifferent to textured shades now?  Let me know in the comments.
