Purplelized has almost the same complex finish as 380 Forget-Me-Not! (as shown above) but misses out on the duo chrome and the color is not vibrant at all and therefore this polish falls a bit flat.
Both 430 and 380 formula's are fine. Three coats is what I applied.

My guess is that Iron Mermaiden is made to dupe OPI's Not Like The Movies. I did a quick comparison and ok the overall color might be similar but IM misses the micro glitter that NLTM has and also OPI's formula is 100x better.
Essence also released a polish that looks the same in the bottle (43 Where's the Party?) but this is a different shade alltogether. Much more purple and less color shifting. Here's a bottle comparison between the three of them:

Voor de Nederlandse lezers:
Catrice nagellak is verkrijgbaar bij de Kruidvat voor € 2.49. Voor zover ik heb begrepen zijn nog niet alle winkels voorzien van het nieuwe (2011) Ultimate Nail Lacquer display maar in de komende weken zal je deze nieuwe nagellak in de meeste Catrice displays kunnen vinden.
I have still tons of Catrice polish to swatch but I got high today of the fumes so bare with me!
Which one do you like best so far? Do they sell Catrice where you live?
Hasta la vista, Laqueristas!
