Today I want to show you a polish I bought in Austria a few weeks back. I was asking wich polishes you would like to see and my friend Andera from Colour Your Life was curious about this polish so let me present to you Minty Memories (04) by Catrice Luxury Vintage, with a Satin Matte Effect.
As Andrea mentioned in her lovely comment, the polish looks quite stunning in the bottle wich you can see in the picture above. it has a wonderful blue shimmer to a soft turquouse base and I instantly fell in love with it, when I layed eyes on it. Being on Sale and half price off I simply had to buy it!
My exaltation was attenuated when I started painting my nails. The first coat went on very streaky, but I thought that might level out with the second one. Once that was dry I painted them again wich caused bubbles and even more streaks. I then did a third coat just to make sure to do everything I could to make it better, but it didn't help much either. I am really disappointed in this polish. In addition to the bad formula I hardly see any of the beautiful shimmer from the bottle on my nails.
I thought my problems with the application may have something to do with the Maybelline base coat I use and so I will give this a second chance with another base coat. Hopefully that will help.
Have you ever had trouble with applying a polish like that?
