Catrice Cruise Couture LE Nautica

The Catrice Cruise Couture collection hit stores and obviously I had to take a look at the polishes. It's always kinda hard for me to get my hands on LE's from Catrice since they aren't sold at a Kruidvat near me and in the city it's almost always sold out immediately. Luckily I found some bottles left in the display and one of them was Nautica, a gorgeous dusty medium blue with brighter blue shimmer. It felt like something I didn't have in my stash yet and since Catrice isn't that expensive it came home with me.

I polished it on in 2 easy coats, though you need to be a bit careful about cuticle pooling. This bottle has the new, wide and thick and curved brush Catrice now uses so keep that in mind if you have very narrow nails. I always have some trouble painting my pinky with it. I added topcoat and figured the shimmer would now be nice and visible again with my lovely glass surface.. but it wasn't. The shimmer is really barely visible i this polish and that's a bummer, because it makes it so much more original than just a medium dusty blue creme.

Do you own any from this collection?

    Too bad about the shimmer, but it's still a gorgeous blur! :)

  3. I didn't pick up any of the polishes from that collection. They simply weren't unique enough for me and I didn't even realize the blue has shimmer in it. Still it's nice!

    I'm just back from the shop and I found (and bought) the entire collection! I was too sad that the blue eyeliner was already sold out though, I really wanted that one :(

  7. I can understand! Had I known the shimmer was this invisible I think I wouldn't have bought it.

  8. I really doubted to buy the gelliner but my experiences with Catrice gelliners aren't good.. How are yours?

  9. A little late unfortunately but I had finally found the blue eyeliner from the Nautica collection and I've worn it a few times. I love it! It's pretty much comparable to the Essence gel liners, which I also find very easy to work with :)
