Catrice Ultimate Nail Lacquer – Clay-ton, My Hero

I picked up Catrice Ultimate Nail Lacquer in Clay-ton, My Hero, which is number 230. It’s a taupe shade with gold pearl running through it. I’ve taken a few images to show the  the difference the light makes to this polishes appearance.

Sometimes it looks grey, other times you can see the gold running through and the polish appears on the beige scale.

There’s no point if faffing around, I love it! End of.

It’s creamy but fluid, two coats is perfect. One coat isn’t enough and it isn’t a nice colour at this stage. It goes with every outfit, it’s chic and works with most skin-tones thanks to its’ taupeness with an undercurrent of gold pearl.

I bought my bottle from my local pharmacy for €2.99. Bargain! The bottle has 10ml of product.

I applied a clear top coat over this polish and it didn’t chip for 3 days. I love the colour, love the formulation, love the price, just love full stop!

There was a gorgeous jade green and navy that I wanted from this range too but unfortunately they were out of stock. I shall be returning! Do you recommend any Catrice shades?

What are you wearing on your nails today?

    I highly recommend a similar Catrice shade, From Dusk Til Dawn, it’s so glossy and lovely! Catrice rule :)

    I bought a few catrice products recently. I really do like their lipsticks. The one in “beige nude” is just like creme d’nude. I was thinking about trying the nail polishes, but most have a pearl to them and I am more of a cream finish only girl. But this does look really nice, maybe I’ll give it a try. I thought that colour “Sold out forever” is very interesting too.

      Lorraine,
      I love London’s Weather Forecast – fantastic grey shade with a hint of shimmer & goes on easily! Two coats give a really vibrant colour – hope you like it!
