Catrice new nail polish collection 2011 part 3

Catrice 530 Up In The Air, sun

Dear Lacqueristas,

The nail polish range of Catrice goes on and on... Click here to see part 1 and here's the link for part 2
530 Up In The Air, no direct light and color accurate
Up In The Air is a precious periwinkle, that leans a lot more to the blue then to the lilac side. Application was fine in 3 coats.

Catrice 300 Be My Millionaire, sun

Be My Millionaire is a champagne colored pearl,somewhat similar to Chanel's Trapeze. If you look very close, underneath the pearl finish you will find tiny glassflecks that could have made this polish super sparkly if it weren't for the heavy frost. It took me 3 coats.

Catrice 300, Be My Millionaire, no direct light source

Catrice 130 Lucky in Lilac, sun

Catrice 130 Lucky in Lilac, no direct light source. More color accurate.
Lucky in Lilac is a lilac creme. It is your avarage lilac but a bit warmer, has some red in it and it not too blue. Purple-ish shades are notoriously camera-shy so imagine these pics a bit more red. The one shot without a direct light source is more color accurate. Three coats.

Catrice 280 London's Weather Forecast. Oh, the shimmer!

Catrice 280 London's Weather Forecast

London's Weather Forecast is a medium grey with shimmer. It is one of my favorite greys ever. So delicate and feminine because of the perfect balance between grey and a tiny bit of blue, and the shimmer. Love it. Two coats.

Catrice 140 Let's Mauve On

Let's Mauve On is more lilac-y then a true mauve. It has silvery shimmer and I love it! It reminds me of Chanel's Lilac Sky. Three coats.

Catrice 030 Meet me at Coral Island
Meet Me at Coral Island iiiiiisssss.... *drumrolls* a coral! Bright, in your face orange with a hint of red and pink hotness. The finish is not 100% creme, there is some jelly quality to it. Not enough to call it a jelly but still. Lovely shade, perfect for summer toes as well. Three coats.

Catrice 120 Plum Play With Me
Plum Play With Me is a darker purple cream. Same like Funky Donkey and Grape Fit. Quality is awesome though, just like most (darker) creme's by Catrice. I did 3 coats just because of the macro but in real life you could get away with two.

Catrice 350 Hip Queens Wear Blue Jeans

Catrice 350 Hip Queens Wear Blue Jeans
 Hip Queens Wear Blue Jeans has a smokey blue base with the tinyest turqoise glitters. These glitters are secret and only show their pretty lil faces in the sun or at the right angle. That's totally fine because the murky blue base is fascinating as it is. Beautiful, unique polish. Two coats.

Catrice 410 Pool Party

Pool Party is a medium blue creme. What else can I say. Two coats. Awesome formula.

Voor de Nederlandse lezers: Catrice is te koop bij het Kruidvat, deze nieuwe nagellak kost €2,49 per stuk.

Which one do you like best out of these swatches? And do you see any dupes of high end brands?

Hasta la vista, Laqueristas!
