Today I hauled 7 bottles from the new Catrice collection. I had been keeping an eye on them for a while now, and it seemed to take forever for them to appear in stores. I decided to take another look right after work, when I saw they had finally arrived! I was in the drugstore by 5.45 and walked out of the store at 5.55 with 7 bottles of nailpolish, 1 eyeshadow quad and 1 gel liner, LOL I felt like a kid in a candy store.
These are the colors I hauled… so far:
Omg, aren’t they pwetty? I think Catrice nailed it, once again, with their color repertoire. Whether or not they nailed it quality wise, you’ll find out the next couple of days. I’m only swatching 2 at a time, because it’s a nightmare for cuticles and quite frankly, it costs too much time (o, the drying time…)
Today I swatched the light blue color, Am I Blue Or Green? and the peach color, Apropos Apricot.
Am I Blue Or Green?
Application wise this is not a winner. This is practically always a problem with light colors. I applied 2 thick coats, but you could also go for 3 thin coats. My nails might have needed a third coat, so that means 4 thin coats. It bubbled like caaaaah-razy! But that’s because I was being impatient
Apropos Apricot is an apricot/peach colored color. It’s lighter (more toned down/pastel) and yellower than the peach color they already have (or had?) in their collection (I Scream Peach). This one also has a slight white/silver shimmer.
Application was a disaster. When I applied the first coat, it looked more like a nude french manicure color. It’s very watery and streaky. I decided to do 3 thin layers. Unfortunately, I can still see streaks and some VNL. The pigmentation is just crappy and I hate it because I really like this color
I had really high hopes, but the pigmentation really let me down. But I’m really stubborn and I’m going to wear them anyway, how many layers it might take me! Ha!
Till next time
