I spent the weekend in Bremen with my mom and dad, visiting my brother who lives there. It was a really fun and busy weekend! I'll spare you for the family part and tell you about the nail goodies I came home with ;)
I spent a LOT of time in all kinds of stores, looking through some of my favourite cheap brands like Catrice, Essence, P2 and decided to check out a few more expensive brands as well. I'm of the opinion that just because it's cheap it isn't crap, and vice versa - expensive, high-street stuff doesn't have to be amazing. And from experience I love the brand Catrice - great brush, cute bottles (if only the lids were a bit more firm they' be perfect), amazing colours, quick drying time, great opacity and... you get the point. ;) I was truly in nail polish heaven.
To my excitement I found one of the new colours Catrice decided to include in their main line (and I grabbed the last bottle in the store, it was meant to be I'm sure!) - a beautiful dark green called Run Forest Run! Not only do I love the colour but also the name. Last night I had an hour to spare, so I decided to pamper my nails with a new manicure and give them an extra thorough cleaning with Orly Cutique (which I use before every manicure for stain removing and cuticle-management LOL).
|Catrice - Run Forest Run!|
I love dark green in almost all shades - this one is one of my favorites now! It's up there on my fav list with Zulu ♥
I used two coats, but one thick would do the job I think - it has the most wonderful formula as Catrice cremes tends to have.
As for comparison, I don't have a match for it - it's darker than OPI's Jade is the new Black but lighter than Orly - Enchanted Forest (at least in the bottle. Haven't tried this one yet). It's very much a creme and darker than my pictures show - I used the flash.
I also bought a silver ring at the christmas market in Bremen, and decided I'd take a picture of it. I'll be making a design eventually inspired by it ♥ Frogs reminds me of my granddad and a happy childhood ♥♥♥
