I have complained about being dissatisfied with the matte top coat I had, and the NYC matte top coat came recommended by the very friendly Miriam over at NailTalk.
Then, NYC '206 - East Village', which in colour reminded me a bit of Orly's "Halley's Comet", but less glittery. I'm not a very glittery girl, so I'm not complaining.Followed by Catrice 'C01 - Innocent Toxin' from the Limited Edition 'Revoiltaire'. Now, it's not hard to see this is pretty much a dead ringer for their ACid/DC. Holding them next to each other in store lights, I couldn't make out any difference at all. With polishes so similar, I'll go for the one with the prettiest bottle.
I wasn't going to buy any more Catrice polishes, but I'd seen '800 - Heavy Metallilac' swatched on some other blogs and I was just in awe! What a stunning purple! Basically, I had to have it. And now I do.
Here's Innocent Toxin on my nails. Sadly, it's not very sunny out, so the pretty shimmer is very difficult to be seen on my picture. The shimmer itself looks a little blueish if you look close enough.
Further more, I want to post more of my older polish jobs and nail arts. However, rather than just mentioning it, I whipped up a little header for those posts. (I'll also be going back and stick it in older posts of the kind already up.) I must say I'm quite fond of kitschy, gimmicky aging effects. Anyway, featuring two fairly old polishes;
