Catrice Glamazona

I know , I know! More Catrice.. but I love them. I'm lucky enough to have a wonderful friend in Germany who has been sending me these LEs before we get them in Ireland. This collection was one I was really looking forward to.

Here are the four main polishes in this collection (there is a gold crackle, but I'm over crackles!)

C01 Dirty Liana, a teal green; C02 Lime Heart Is Beating, a mustard yellow; C03 I'm A Survivor, a tomato red and C04 I Got The Flower, a purple.

I really like this collection. The colours are "popping" , something great about summer polishes. You can have pastels, and shimmers but these popping colours are my favourite. Deep pigments and almost one coaters - win win!

So to the swatch-fest! First up I have Dirty Liana. This was pretty much opaque in one coat; though I used two. I love teal and I love this. It's a staple colour for me to have... I love the richness of this one. I haven't used topcoats with these polishes and pictures were taken in direct sunlight.

Number 2 is Lime Heart is Beating. This yellow polish reminds me of English Mustard on the nails. It appears much brighter in the sun but for a yellow, it's one of the better ones. Some are too canary, and some two in between canary and lemon. Quite like this one! Two coats for complete opacity.

Number 3 is I'm a Survivor. This tomato red is rich, and opaque in one coat, though I used two. I like this red - it's brassy and brave and great for toes...

Lastly, Number 4: I Got The Flower. A rich royal purple. I am a huge purple fan and this one needed two coats! It is not as dark as some I have so it's a nice lighter version.

My favourite two are the teal, and red. These I will use regularly as go-to polishes for every day...

Glamazona is due in Ireland at the end of this month, rolling out across pharmacies and Primarks nationwide. Will you be getting these polishes?
