Hi friends!! Right before international shipping prices jumped sky-high and overseas swapping became a luxury I could no longer afford, my good friend Christine at Polished Marvels and I got in a couple good ones. She sent me a few polishes from one of my very favorite international brands, Catrice, and they're treasures in my collection... even more so when I found out all my colors had been discontinued. So, my bad for being remiss in posting about them; I don't know about you, though, but I kind of think looking at vhtf/d/c'd polish swatches is fun. :)
If I remember correctly, Christine originally got No Snow Petrol for herself, thinking it would be a copy of Rescue Beauty Lounge Aqua Lily and quickly discovered that it's not. No Snow Petrol is a highly dusty teal with a very subtle pink shimmer, really quite unique. I love me some teals and this one stands out in my not inconsiderable stash of such colors as being edgily, grungily pretty. I LOVE this color. Two coats plus one layer of topcoat.
King of Greens spent a long time on my wishlist and the dear girl sent me two. It's a yellow toned grass green with a visible monochromatic shimmer and a very spring/summer feel to it. Two coats plus one layer of topcoat.
George Blueney was a new release when Christine sent it and I was stoked to receive it. It's GORGEOUS, a deep navy/midnight blue packed with monochromatic, teal, and fuschia shimmer different from the inky OPI Russian Navy types because this one is warm toned, more deep cyan and less ballpoint pen. Two coats plus one layer of topcoat.
So... good luck finding these if you like 'em? And tell me, is it completely rude and self indulgent to post swatches of discontinued polishes? I just began to feel like these were way too pretty to keep to myself any longer.
Thanks for reading and have a beautiful day!! ♥ (and thanks again, sis ♥♥)
