NOTD: Catrice, Mona Lisa Is Staring Back

The messy application is on me, not the polish!
 Today’s NOTD is the eccentrically named Mona Lisa Is Staring Back, from the Ultimate Nude collection by Catrice. I think this polish is something special: it’s a gorgeous, creamy looking nude with gold shimmer that looks really elegant and expensive, which belies the price-tag of about 3 or 4 euro. Nudes can be streaky but this one is the exception - though it did need 3 thin coats to get the finish I wanted.

It's hard to capture that gold shimmer, but trust me, it's in there!

I can’t say enough good things about Catrice polishes: I now have 3 in my collection and there’s not a dud among them. The colours are fab, the names are quirky and original and they apply and wear just as well as polishes 4 or 5 times their price.  I shall quickly be extending my collection!


Oh and c'mere to me, while you're here, why not enter my latest giveaway to win a set of three lip products that were recently raved about by top makeup artist, Lisa Eldridge?
