Mara’s Birthday nail art month – DAY 15

Mara's Birthday nail art month

DAY 15

Hey everyone,

this time I tried something different, using some of the holographic polishes I own.
Sadly some of the colors are not as bright and popping as I wished them to be.

Here is what I used:

  • as a base color Catrice – Holomania – C04 Plum Me Up Scotty
  • Catrice LE Luxury Lacquers – Holomania – C01 Holo Manolo
  • Catrice LE Luxury Lacquers – Holomania – C03 Holo In One
  • Catrice – LE Haute Future – C01 Eletrix Blue
  • O.P.I. – Snowflakes in the air
  • Catrice – LE Haute Future – C03 iROSEdescent

I applied two coats of C04 Plum Me Up Scotty and let it dry. After that I put two drops of color onto a stamping plate and started applying different length lines of C01 Holo Manolo on each nail near the cuticle, then did the same with C03 Holo In One and C01 Eletrix Blue.
After that I used O.P.I.’s Snowflakes in the air to apply some bling as well-
On the ring finger I used only two coats of C03 iROSEdescent and their new polish 04 Lost ‘N Roses.

What do you think? Is it pretty like that or should the colors, I used to apply the lines, be more bright?

[Review] Catrice LE Luxury Lacquers – Holomania

Hello everyone,

I know I kind of introduced these before in my HAULy friday – three from February, but I realized I did not show the on the nails or even posted a nail art.

So here we go!

Somehow a few of the pictures turned out to show the silver holo kind of blue-ish. I am sorry for that, but the first and last nail pictures show the real color.

This is a super pretty silver holographic nail polish. I think it is perfect as a base for stamping.
Basically all of the polishes are great for stamping I think.

When I saw the LE in my local DM this was the color that totally caught my attention. I just love it!
On the nails it reminds me of a day on the beach, sparkling, clear blue/turquoise water.
This is definitely my favorite polish from all four holomania polishes.

Sorry for the bad color quality here as well, following you can see the real color.

This lilac holographic polish looks similar to the silver one, but there is still a difference. The lilac is very discreet but I love it. I think the silver one and lilac one would be perfect for a gradient nails with another polish I own. I will definitely try it once I figured out how to do gradient haha

The silver and turquoise one I already own twice, because I like them so much.
The lilac one I did not get again, it seems to be out of stock everywhere.
For those of you who follow me on instagram, you already saw the following nail art.

I did that right after I bought them by the end of February.
As you can see I used the turquoise one as a base color and one day later got bored with it which was why I used clear tape and the silver holographic polish to create the triangle shapes.
On my ring finger I used Essence stamping polish from the LE Love Letters to create the stamped design.

HAULy friday – three

Hello everyone,

today is friday and you know what that means!

Today is HAULy friday!

12_0124_CherryBlossom_Header

This week I a showing you the stuff I bough from my local DM drugstore.

As you might know, Catrice recently released a new Limited Edition that is fully based on nail polishes.

The Catrice Website tells us the following:

Limited Edition “Luxury Lacquers” by CATRICE

Show Effects. Looks must be multi-facetted, the feel unusual. The new fabrics in the designer collections are there to be discovered with all your senses. Three-dimensional structures, elaborate applications as well as multi-dimensional colours with holographic or metallic effects turn the designs into luxury items. More is more. That’s why the Limited Edition “Luxury Lacquers” by CATRICE“, which will be available in stores in March 2014, offers a total of 24 nail polish colours guaranteed to be eye-catching. You have a choice of four different effects: Sand’sation, Chameleon, Million Brilliance and Holomania. All polishes shine in the trendiest colours of the season and offer ultimate coverage as well as a long-lasting texture. Limited Edition, unlimited Effects – by CATRICE.

The collection contains the following:

MILLION BRILLIANCE

Special Sparkle. Multi-dimensional glitter and pearls sparkle in all facets and give your nails a luxurious coat. The result is unique and brillliant – absolute must-haves and suitable for all trendy looks.

SAND’SATION

3Deluxe. The Sand’sation nail polishes offer a sandy finish with high coverage and a sensational colour brilliance. The fine crystals cover your nails like diamond dust to give them an unmistakable structure.

HOLOMANIA

Pretty Prism. Holographic effects give your nails a unique look – exclusive and fascinating at the same time. The metallic colours with an ultimate prism effect come in cool silver and blue shades as well as a fashionable purple. Ultimate coverage and ultimate durability are guaranteed. On top of that, the professional brush offers a particularly easy application.

CHAMELEON

Colour Change. Intensive, powerful colour meets upon iridescent duo-chrome here. The unique chameleon effect makes a real statement. The shine is full of effects, the colour offers great coverage and the texture is especially long-lasting.

I love the idea of a full nail polish LE. Great job Catrice!

My personal favorite are the Holographic polishes.
I bought three of them, but only because my DM did not have all four of them.
I came back 3 times this week to check, but still nothing. :(
Also went to my second DM near by, but also nothing.

Catrice, please send me C02 ApHolo 7 :D

Anyway, here are my pictures of the polishes.

I simply love those polishes. I swatched them all and looks absolutely stunning!
If you follow my Facebook Page you probably already saw my mid week manicure with Holo in One.
The coverage is unbelievable. Already after one coat the polish was nice and opaque!
I added a second coat, just to make sure. The dry time was also very good.

I will do a separate post on these polishes with different nail designs, so please wait for that.
But since the LE is out now or at latest in March, I wanted to hurry and recommend you to BUY ALL OF THEM!
i paid 3,45 euro each and it was totally worth the money.

Catrice, if you read this, please please PLEASE take these holographic polishes into your standard range!

The next polish is also from Catrice. It is the effect topper 50 glitterazzi.

I got curious about this polish when I saw it on LacquerVictim’s – January HAUL.
So far I don’t own an effect coat like this. I will let you know what I think of it. The reviews I have read recently were not that good, but who knows I might love it^^

P2 also has a new Limited Edition, called Square Affair,which is sold in all DM stores throughout Germany (and maybe also Austria and Switzerland).
I was not a big fan of the polishes so the only thing I bought was the glitter set.
I thought these were nice to create cute nail art designs. When I checked the recite for the price I almost fell from my chair. I though it was 3 euro something, turns out I actually paid 4,65 euro. WOW!
Well its too late now anyway haha

Recently I am not a big fan of the P2 LE’s. The Beauty Rebel, as well as Square Affair and the up coming Sea la Vie LE are really not my cup of tea. I don’t like the colors of the polishes, they are very boring to me.
I also saw pictures of the upcoming summer LE with lots of bronze colors…..I am so disappointed.
I totally freaking LOVED the polishes from last years Summer Attack LE, even bought bottles and bottles on stock for myself…..but the current releases….not for me.

What do you think? Any recommendations for me? What should I buy? What should I try?

Let me know :)
