Catrice Dirty Berry


Today I´m showing you a Catrice polish. Catrice is a brand that is widely available here in the Netherlands. And still I´ve only got 2 of them. No you wonder why of course. Well... let´s see... a lot of you will probably not agree with me on this one, but I don´t find their colors very special. Every once in a while I take a look in stores to see all the colors. The ones that do appeal to me, are colors that are very similar to stuff I already own.

The one I picked up recently and I´m showing you today is a color I actually bought for a friend. While buying it I decided it was actually pretty awesome. In the bottle Dirty Berry looked like a dusty lilac/purple, but on my nails it looks more like lavender. I think that has to do with skin tone. It´s probably more lilac when you have a darker skin tone.
The special surprise in this one is that the silver shimmer turns out to be a very very very subtle holo. Unfortunately it wasn´t sunny enough the day I wore this to show up in the pictures.

Application was ok. Not bad, not extremely good either. The brush is a little short, but nothing unmanagable. Opacity was good, just 2 coats needed.

Do you own a lot of Catrice? And did you just buy them because they are cheap? Or did you buy them because you adore the colors?

Thanks for watching and enjoy your day!

  1. I don't have many catrice polishes, but this one i have, and i love this shade! It's absolutely gorgeous! :)

  2. I've got more than 15 and I looooove them. There are so beautiful colors, I really don't want to miss one of them. :)

  3. I have 10+ I like the formula, the bottle and the price! This one is particularly nice though, unique colour and finish combination.

  4. I have A LOT catrice lacquers. I liked them for colours that I would only wear once or twice and then dump them in my helmer. LOL!

  5. I loved this polish the first time I seen it and it looks awesome on you!

    I totally agree with you, this one is unique! And that´s why I like it. And also why I don´t like most of the other Catrices, they aren´t unique.

    Well, see what I mean, not special enough, so won´t be seen outside the helmer anymore.
