China Glaze and Catrice

These are very summery shades, but I’ll show them anyway, mostly because the Catrice ones are fairly new products. And let me tell you right now, that both My Big Green Wedding and Lost’n Roses are bad.

They look amazingly beautiful in the bottle – I couldn’t even put them away in my Alex’s Catrice drawer, but I was so diappointed when I applied them! Because I had no clue that they’re top coats. I was hoping that they were gonna have coverage on their own. I expected two or three coats to full opacity – but all I got was some chunky, uneven and unflattering polish mass. :/

I used a coloured base under them this time, but it didn’t help. I applied two coats of both of them and well, you can see how they look. :S I don’t say that they’re horrible, but I don’t like them at all. Although the green one has such an interesting shade! :( So, no, I wouldn’t recommend any of them, unless you like what you see on these pictures.

So let’s talk about the other two polishes instead. They come from this summer’s China Glaze collection: Feel The Breeze (pink) and Shore Enuff (green). I really like both of them, although their quality is very different. Feel The Breeze is slightly gloopy and tricky to apply, but with a little bit of luck you can get it on nicely in two coats. But I’m more than happy to face some struggle for this amazing pink shade. ;) And it’s p-e-r-f-e-c-t for stamping. I swear I could stamp this pink on anything and it would look great.

On the other hand Shore Enuff is less pigmented, but still covers in two coats. It’s no good for stamping, but it has a very fresh grass green shade on its own. :) Since there are cheaper and just as beautiful grass green polishes than this one, I’m not sure if I would repurchase it. :/

But I’m pretty sure that I would never repurchase the Catrice ones. No matter how they sparkle, I just don’t buy them. I mean I did, but why, oh why. :/

To sum it up: the Catrice polishes are good for home decor, but that’s all, the pink China Glaze is tricky but gorgeous and the green one is not special enough for its pricetag. Hm, I’m a little strict today. :)
