Swatch-It Sunday: Catrice "Mint Me Up" and vintage nail art!

Hey lovelies!

Are you ready for another Swatch-It Sunday? Today we have one of the new Catrice polishes of their regular collection: Mint Me Up. It is a dark mint green polish with a golden shimmer and with bronze flakies. Say what?! Yes exactly, I have not seen anything like it, ever, so it is a must-have ;) It retails for 2.99 euros. So let's have a look!

With Flash:


Application was easy, and it is opaque in 2 easy coats. Let's have a closer look at all the goodness!
Artificial light:

Even though the polish alone made me stare at my nails constantly, I needed to do some nail art. The varnish colour made me think of old wallpapers, and then I thought about one of the Nailasaurus' nail designs, and inspired by that, I went to work. This is the result:

 OMG look at that, SUNSHINE!

I used a white striper, some white polish and a dotting tool, and for the roses I used NYC "Revolving Red" and Essence "A Walk In The Park" and a little brush and some of the white polish. The mani started chipping after 2 days, that was a bit sad, because I loved it so much! What do you guys think? Will you buy it?
