Who knows about your blog?

Blogging is an amazing past time and a pleasure to either create or just to browse as a reader. But I have noticed there’s a distinct divide in blogging between people who are very vocal about being  a blogger and those who prefer to keep things a little quieter. Now...

catrice miami pink

In the lead up to Christmas and all sorts of merriment I start craving a little sparkle so when I saw this brand new shade from Catrice, our eyes met and the rest was history. Stepping slightly away from being too Christmassy, this is a hot pink shade with tons of micro glitter running through it.

I’m really glad I picked this up, it’s simply gorgeous. One layer leaves it slightly sheer, two is full on colour with a beautiful zesty pink and the tiniest pink glitter that makes your nails shimmer and shine, even in this very dull light.

This looks more expensive than it is and I guarantee you’ll find a similar shade from another brand at 3 times the price. I love Catrice because their nail polishes are so affordable but really varied and fun and this shade will look perfect for parties or just on days when you’re in your pj’s and fancy some sofa glam while you’re watching Home Alone and eating your selection box. Bliss!

For under a fiver, you can’t go wrong with this little number and I think I’ll be picking up a few extra shades from Catrice so my nails are festive and fun for the next month or so!

So girls are you digging this shade and are you sad like me and think about what your Christmas nail varnish will be? Say yes!

    I have this and I’ve never used it!! I’ve no idea why, because it’s lovely. I’ve definitely thought about my Christmas polish but it depends on which jumper I end up wearing..is that really sad?! :D x

    • http://www.makeupmonster.ie/ Makeup Monster

      No outfit and nail polish co-ordination is very important!! If you give this a whirl let me know what you think of it!

    • http://www.makeupmonster.ie/ Makeup Monster

      A total bargain!

  • Claire Kane

    Beautiful colour although I seem to be on my own in thinking that Catrice nail varnish is the pits! I always have trouble applying it; it’s sticky and chips easily. I must be doing something wrong!

    • http://www.makeupmonster.ie/ Makeup Monster

      Oh I haven’t found them the pits to be honest, they do chip on me but pretty much every polish I use does within a couple of days, I think I’m rough handed!

      • Claire Kane

        maybe I’m extra rough handed!

  • Cint Dunne

    Catrice have some wonderful shades, but my god does it chip! Any polish I’ve tried by them has chipped within an hour which is a real shame. For under a fiver I can’t complain too much. A good top coat is key!

    • http://www.makeupmonster.ie/ Makeup Monster

      Oh not quite that bad on me now I have to say but that’s pretty rubbish if you’re only getting an hour! I got big chips on the second day but that’s pretty much me with every polish!:)

    Ooh what a gorgeous shade! I love bright colours like this during the winter months xx
