Catrice King of Greens and Heavy Metallilac

Happy Caturday! 

  So I have this awesome swap buddy in The Netherlands named Sharon. She's been a loyal LTHP Facebooker for a while now and she pretty much rocks. All I can say is she knows my taste well! I gave her complete freedom in what to send my way. I wanted a "sampling" of The Netherland's prettiest polishes. Sharon definitely delivered! She sent a small mountain of amazing polishes my way. Among that epic pile of color were these Two stunners by Catrice. 

Catrice King of Greens
 This is King of Greens. The name is perfect for this color. For some reason this particular tone of Green reminds me of American money, shimmery money lol. The shimmer in this polish is crazy amazing. I usually save this description for my rich shimmery Reds but King of Greens really does glow. The micro shimmer reflects light beautifully in this polish. I love that while vivid it is not an "in- your-face" shade of Green. It is very sophisticated and eye catching at the same time. The formula is very saturated with color and shimmer. This could have almost been a one coater but I did Two to get an extra smooth and glassy surface.

Catrice Heavy Metallilac
  I'm literaly sitting here trying to type about this color and I keep getting distracted by the pictures and wishing I was wearing this right now. Heavy Metallilac is an AMAZING Amethyst toned Purple shimmer with metallic Pinky-Lilac flashes throughout. Once again this color GLOWS and I mean that.  I have not loved a Purple shade this much since O.P.I Plugged in Plum. This color is just electric! The second I started applying this my jaw pretty much dropped at it's beauty. The formula is flawless and could do with One coat but I did Two.
 Sharon really hit the nail on the head when she picked these out for me. They are seriously STUNNING! Can you believe that in Europe this is a "normal" brand?! Lucky bishes loool! Catrice makes stuning shades with fantastic formulas and I am so happy to finally have some in my collection, I never thought I would. I love international polishes. So cool to see what is trendy in other places.

  7. Oh yeah. I've not tried it yet but with that dense formula and metallic shimmer it must do some beautiful stamps.

  8. YYY doesn't Catrice start selling in the States! I have HM, from my mom's recent trip to Holland. I LOVE it, it is a distractingly gorgeous color. And apparently I need to send her back now for King of Greens.

  13. Catrice is a regular brand in Ireland too, thankfully! I love HM, haven't seen King of Greens yet, looks kinda like Run Forest Run with shimmer in. Will have to compare them on the stand! Fab pictures :)

  14. Gorgeous colours! Now you US guys know how we feel in Australia... none of the stores you constantly mention, none of the regular polishes (like Essie) you swatch, importing polish is subject to some sort of dangerous goods declaration and OPI when you manage to find it is around $20 a bottle for outdated colours! I live through these blog posts... :-D
