Catrice Swatches

Happy Monday 😀

I need some sunshine in my life right now, thought I would share some of it with you.

C02 For Bright Guys

C02 For Bright Guys

For Bright Guys is from Catrice’s Limited Edition NEONaturals range and its bright Orange caught my eye immediately! I didnt have anything like this in my collection so I just had to have it. The collection consisted of 6 bright polishes & 6 Natural (Nude) Polishes.

This polish was a dream to apply!

Earnie & Birdie was gifted to me at an event hosted by Cosmetix last year September. This beaut of a yellow has a soft white shimmer that isn’t very evident in this image but is stunning in real life.

Everyone has that 1 glitter on their wish list that takes a while to find. For me it was this one, I had chunky gold glitter on my wishlist for ages and then one day as I was doing my usual browse of every polish rack in the mall I found this pretty mash up of chunky & fine gold glitter.

What polish is on your wishlist but you have had trouble finding?

This was the only Crushed Crystals polish on the shelf, they sold out like hot cakes and so I had to get it before I missed out.

I fell in love with the subtle gold undertone to this pink texture polish.

Its slightly translucent so I did 3 coats but my nails still shine through slightly, no biggie though.

Hope you have a lovely day 😀

Catrice 30 Lilactric & Movember Mani

30 Lilactric

30 Lilactric

Hello and happy Monday everyone.

Above is a swatch of Catrice 30 Lilactric, I used it to do a Movember (Hand Painted) Mani.

It consists of 2 coats and the polish is absolutely Fab! Its got such a smooth finish and I just love the Yellow shimmer it gives off! I think I just found a new fav brand 🙂

I really loved this Mani and kept it on for a whole week and a half hehe. I used my Black Cina Pen to do all the details.

Sad misfortune… Look what happened when I tried to open my bottle… it snapped inside.

OUCH

OUCH

So it doesn’t seal anymore 😦 Will just need to find a lid that will fit the bottle.

***Added after the fact: Cosmetix, the owner of the Catrice Brand saw this post about the broken bottle and contacted me immediately to replace the bottle. They are aware that there was a production error with a batch of lids so if this happens to you, feel free to contact them for help.

Caribbean Tan Pamper Day

So yesterday was an event filled day. I was lucky enough to be the second runner up for a giveaway on the Caribbean Tan page. The Prize… A pamper day at the Langaro Spa in Camps Bay.

It was such an amazing experience that I am officially envious of anyone that does it on a regular basis.

The day started out by me getting introduced to Cindy Nell, I then had my makeup done by the girls at Head 2 Toe. I have honestly never seen my eyes so Smokey and pretty. I have tried and failed to get it right. I asked a million and one questions while she did my eyes so that when I try again I can get it right.

Then I moved on to selecting my freebies and that was a challenge hehe.

At the Essence Stand I was spoilt for choice. As I already have all the Colour& Go products I chose the Twins Reloaded Romeo & Julia set & a compact Powder.

I then moved over to the Catrice Stand and again had so much to choose from, I don’t actually own any Catrice products as the Dis-Chem by me does not stock them so I chose 3 very pretty Polishes.

I then went over to the Caribbean Tan stand and got my usual Instant Spritzer for Fair Skin. I hate going in the sun so I am a big believer in faking it.

Then I went and got a Mani. I could choose any colour I wanted and so I zoned in on the “Me & My Ice-cream” Trend Edition stand. If I could have chosen to take those babies home I would have, they are on my Wishlist but as they have not been launched yet all I could do was swoon over them. Their Launch Date will be announced.

After that I took a snack break and had some yummy foods. Including my ultimate fav… A Red Velvet Cupcake.

While snacking I had a lovely sit down with the EDITOR, Kathy Bruggemann, of “Mommy Matters” & a lovely intern from the Glamour Mag. And got some very valuable advice about blogging and running a “brand”.

I also had the pleasure of meeting Chi Chi, the resident Nail Artist for Revlon, she has also been in the Cosmo to give Nail Art how-to’s.

I then finished off the day with a selection of Facial Products, a Perfume & a Caribbean Spray Tan.

As soon as I walked through the door my boyfriend said “You look different” I was like um dah… I am at least 3 shades darker & have professional makeup on. Men!

Anyway All in all it was a very valuable experience and has renewed my drive to be a well known Nail Artist. Back to practice practice practice.

The swatches of all the new polishes will be up much later in the month

All The Best
