Today I'm going to show you another Catrice from my swap with Stephanie form So Nailed. This is a superb purple/green duo-chrome, in a gorgeous silver base.
The formula is absolutely great. It applies like butter and needs two coats for full opacity. The only thing I dislike is the brush strokes which are a little too visible for my taste. But, in all, this is a great polish!
In the following I'll show the polish in different lights, so you'll get the impression it's not the same polish! But it is!
Here I'm wearing 2 coats of Catrice Mermaiden, no top coat:
|In the shade|
|And in the sun. Yup, it's the same polish ;D|
|Still the same LOL ;D|
|Yet again, in the sun, still the same ;D|
Here you can see both colours on the nails:
And then I thought I'd like to see how Catrice Mermaiden compares to OPI Not Like the Movies (from the Katy Perry collection)! So I put 3 coats of OPI Not Like the Movies on my middle and on my pinkie, keppeing the 2 coats of Catrice Mermaiden on my index and ring.
Also, Not Like the Movies applies really well and builds up very well too, and you don't get any brush strokes marks at all.
I'm not sure which one I prefer... Iron Mermaiden needs only 2 coats for full opacity and teh formula is a dream to work with, but has got brush stroke marks and no shimmer ...
Which one do you prefer???
Thank you so much for watching!
See ya soon!
