Swatches & Review (and a GIVEAWAY!) - 2 shades from the Catrice Luxury Lacquers collection

Hi loves! A bit early today, but I don't think you'll mind. Yes, you read that right: not only am I showing you 2 beautiful shades from the Catrice Luxury Lacquers collection today.. this is also your chance to win a set of your own!

The Catrice Luxury Lacquers is a 24 piece collection made up of 4 sections: there are 8 Million Brilliance (glitter) lacquers, 8 Sand'Sation beauties (textures), 4 Holomania polishes (holographic effect) and 4 Chameleon shades (duochromes). I have Catrice Luxury Lacquers Holomania Holo In One and Catrice Luxury Lacquers Chameleon Chromeo & Julia to show you, and also a set for you to win!


Catrice Luxury Lacquers Holomania Holo In One seafoam green holographic polish
Catrice Holo In One is a gorgeous seafoam green shade with a subtle yet striking holographic effect. I am very happy that for once this drugstore brand is not confusing holographic and duochrome (it happens so often!).

The formula is on the thicker side but very manageable, it almost covers in 1 coat. I did 2 to be sure. The polish levels really well and there aren't any brushstrokes or imperfections that need to be smoothed, I did use a layer of topcoat in my swatches.

Catrice Luxury Lacquers Chameleon Chromeo & Julia orange pink duochrome polish
Catrice Chromeo & Julia is a lovely duochrome that goes from a coppery orange to pink. Because of my lighting I didn't really capture the pink in pictures, but I did spot it on my nails very easily.

I thinned this one a bit after my first layer as it was really thick and a bit gooey. 4 drops of thinner worked perfectly and application was a breeze after that. It covers really nicely and though it shows brushstrokes, I can't really mind with a color like this.

  7. I think they really nailed it with all the holo shades and also I really dig the sand finish on these. Catrice should put them in their standard range

  15. Are you suggesting I could use some Pesto or some Amatriciana on my nails instead of nailpolish? XD LOL

    You're right, though. I've travelled all around the world and it's been a really hard fight to find such a good food...It's my fault only if I was born with the wrong passion :D

  16. Hahaha give it a try, lol!


    Oh well, we can't have everything we want, right? Maybe I should come visit you once, I can enjoy the great food and bring some polish along ;).

  17. Unfortunately that's true...you're right!
    This could be a great idea, however!
    I'll be in Amsterdam next month, should I bring some goodies with me? :D
