Nails of the Day | Catrice 'Dirty Berry'

Wednesday, February 26, 2014

 hello! sorry for taking a huge break from blogging once again. I didn't even mean to, my blogger's block just kept dragging on and I kept coming up with reasons for me not to blog. I feel like I've neglected it but I'll try my best to get back. I even made a blogging schedule weeks ago but school work and my job kept me off it.

on the brighter note, I wanted to share with you all this little gem I bought recently! I saw this polish searching in the Catrice sale box and knew I had to have it. I've been wanting a good holographic polish since last winter when they hit the stores and were really popular!

Catrice 'Dirty Berry' is a grey toned lilac holographic nail polish. it leans more towards the dark side and in my opinion is perfect for autumn/winter (which is coming to an end!) but for me, the holographic aspect is also appropriate in the spring, because once the sun hits it it becomes the most gorgeous lilac full of multi-colored tiny teeny glitter particles. (it kind of shows in the pictures above).
what attracts me the most to this polish is the fact that it looks super festive and glittery but is not hard to take off! one of the reasons I hate putting glitter polishes is because they are a pain to get off but with this - it's not a problem at all!
as with all Catrice polishes, this lasts for about 3-4 days on my nails with a top-coat. it's not impressive but they have great selection of colors and types of polishes so I don't really mind. I have a few I bought on sales and they were up to 80% off which I love, because I'm all about saving money :)
the brush on their polish is huge and covers the whole nail really well. I can get away with one coat of this but I like to add one more for longer wear time.

I wore this polish on New Years Eve this year and loved it, it just screams party for me! if you fancy holographic polishes I would highly suggest you picking this up, I promise you'll love it as much as I do :)

have you tried any of Catrice's nail polishes?

  5. the brand is pretty popular here in Europe, maybe because it's an European brand based in Germany :) it really is gorgeous x

  6. These sound great! Glitter nail polishes can be a bit hit and miss, some of them are rubbish and not opaque at all...however these sound like a big hit!

    1. yes! I hate those! this is opaque with one coat and that's the reason I love it so so much!

  7. Love this polish... holos are one of my weaknesses and this is super pretty.

    1. I will definitely be picking up more holographic polishes in the future, they are just the perfect balance between simple and glitter!

  8. I love silver nails this looks so good! X

  9. Such a beautiful colour! I bet it would look nice with a silver glitter on the ring fingers! :)
