Catrice - I Sea You! (250) with China Glaze Atlantis (80406)

After 3 days of Catrice I Sea You! I just had to do some layering - and what a coincidence that I just received China Glaze Atlantis!

But I've to say: China Glaze Atlantis is not a all what I expected! I wonder why - I saw it so many times in blogs! But I didn't realize that it contains just silver holo glitter! Somehow I thought it would be multicolored! But well, it's still nice! It's just a turquoise jelly with silver holo glitter.

Here are 2 layers of Atlantis over Catrice:

1 x P2 Care and Basecoat
2 x Catrice I Sea You!
1 x Poshe super-fast drying topcoat
2 x China Glaze Atlantis

And a closeup:

The surface is really bumpy but I was too lazy to apply any additional topcoat - and since there is no sunshine in sight I can't even show the wonderfull bling this polish has! All I get is cold temperatures and big clouds!

Removing was a real PITA ... next time I'll try the aluminum foil method!

Catrice - I Sea You! (250)

Long time no see! I'm sorry for that - but my nails peeled too much and my nose was out of order ...

But now I'm back with a new polish - my first from the brand Catrice - cheap drugstore brand - and I've got to say: It won't be my last! Application was a dream! I did 2 coats but on some nails the first would have been enough (yeah, they don't come out consistent - I'm still in the learning phase). The brush is nice and wide - which I really love! Drytime was as always when I use Poshe.

So here it is, Catrice I Sea You!

1 x P2 Care and Basecoat
2 x Catrice I Sea You!
1 x Poshe super-fast drying topcoat

I saw some swatches and it seams to be closely to Misa Dirty Sexy Money, but not quite as greyed out or dusty - so I'll still buy the Misa if it should come my way but otherwise I'll be happy with I Sea You!

And I got a lot of comments on this one - especially my co-worker loved it a lot!

And to celebrate the "I won't buy OPI anymore" I bought some Nubars - they already arrived, I'm excited to try them out! And I try to fight the peeling with some new stuff: The Nubar basecoat and polish remover with acetone.
