You are mint to be

I know this post is kind of late, but my sleeping schedule is askew again so  I just managed to write it up.  Lately it seems to me that I write only about discontinued polishes, but Essence and Catrice change their product range so often that everything is soon discontinued. Now we are saying goodbye to (almost) all of the Catrice shades and getting new ones. Enough of rambling onto the nail polish. This is Catrice Am I blue or green.

mint nail polish

It's a pastel mint color that leans more on the blue side and it has white microshimmer that doesn't show up on the nails. This is the picture that I've played around with colors and I think it's color accurate here. 

svijetli plavo zeleni lak

On all pictures there are three thin coats with top coat. I can see why they discontinued this one, it has a bad formula, dries pretty slowly, fast drying top coat can help but you still have to be careful not to dent it. It's chalky and leaves bald spots so you have to be careful with the application. 

mint creme nail polish

Sometimes I need three, sometimes four coats it depends on how careful I am but I've never managed to apply it properly in only two. It's a nice color and I like to wear it when I have the time to apply it properly and leave it to dry. Do you have it and what do you think about it?

  2. I thought its a pure creme until I read your description about its subtle microshimmer, I think that makes this pastel mint even more interesting :)

    1. Yeah it does, but it makes it dry forever (to me it seems that shimmery chalky polishes dries more slowly), but it's pretty so I put up with it :)

    1. Mislim da znam na koji mislis i da je taj zeleniji od ovoga. Zar ta linija nije vise u prodaji?

  6. Meni je tole eden najljubših Catrice lakov in vedno mi ga uspe nanesti v dveh slojih. :)

  7. Ne svidja mi se cinjenica sto treba naneti 3-4 sloja laka i cekati dosta da se osusi... ali mi se svidja boja... :-)

    1. Da to nikad nije zabavno i samo za neke odredjene boje prihvacam to trpit :) ali srecom bar brzosuseci top coat pomaze, bez njega takve lakove ni ne bi mogla nosit jer nikad ne bi bili suhi

  11. Ko sem videla ta prečudovit lak na tvojih nohtih sem se tepla po glavi, zakaj ga nisem kupila ko je bil še na voljo. Ko sem prebrala glede formule, sem bila pa vesela da ga nisem.
    Res je lep odtenek in tvoji nohti so prekrasni! =)
