Posted on: August 21, 2012

This is “Sold Out Forever” by Catrice. . Catrice is a German company that makes great nail polish. I am lucky enough to have a couple of friends in the UK who have access to this brand and they will send me a bottle every now and then. For that, I am very grateful to my friend Nicky and my friend Diana.

Looking at these all lined up, I feel so blessed, and again, thank you to Nicky and Diana. They have sent me from left to right : 🎉Pimp my Shrimp, Heavy Metallic ( Mom’s favorite), Aretha’s R-E-S-P-I-N-K, Sold out Forever, Blue Cara Ciao, Genius in the Bottle ((a lot like CHANEL Peridot), Dirty Berry and London’s Weather Forecast..

Heavy Metallic is such a charming polish because it goes on great, one coat, no problem, stunningly beautiful. But then, when the light changes it will have a green color to it, and sometimes even a gold cast. My Mom really likes this polish for 2 reasons. A) it is bright enough she can see it, she has a myriad of eye diseases which affects her sight and #2) she is never bored with it because it is a different color every time you turn around. She gets a kick out of that. If it makes her happy, it makes me happy. 😄 (this is my Mom’s nails painted with Heavy Mettalic)

I loved Browno Mars. It is a gorgeous bronze color. Then I heard there is a singer or a band with the same name? I’m not sure what that’s about, but it is a pretty polish, especially in the sunshine.

The bottom picture is Blue Cara Ciao and it is a gorgeous medium blue. I love this color, this is the only blue polish I have that stained my nails. It wasn’t a terrible stain but if I wanted or needed to wear something sheer after this polish, it might have posed a problem. But for me it was no big deal.
I don’t know why, but I haven’t worn Dirty Berry, ah! I just got it Dirty Harry, doh I be blonde, or London’s Weather Forecast. Now that one I did get because it is a smoky gray, but it does have a slight silver shimmer running through it. The other polish from Catrice I haven’t worn yet, is a cream blue call Hip Queens Wear Blue Jeans. Love that name.

All in all I give the Catrice polish I own a ☀☀☀☀ out of 5, only because of the staining factor. Otherwise they are a perfect polish. From what I understand these are sold in drug stores, fairly priced, readily available, what more could you ask for? Oh, that they be sold in the US! That would be freakin awesome!. I have heard rumors that some companies will be switching hands and there is a possibility that Catrice, Gosh and Barry M may be available at your corner drugstore soon. I hope this is a true rumor. If you see this polish for sale and you’re just not sure about it, trust me, it’s worth the price. Catrice is a great polish.

Thanks Linda, I like this color and I also like a duo-chrome. I can’t seem to resist them. My mom does have the littlest hands. She wears a size 4 in rings. Too bad I got my dad’s sausage fingers! Ha!

Me too! But like I said keep a look out for Walgreens. If you see a Walgreens doing a major re-model, then they will probably have Catrice, Gosh and Barry M. Walgreens have already started the re-model in some places but they are making their stores 2stories, the 2ndfloor will have cosmetics. Fingers crossed it will be a Walgreens near you! Thanks Indie.

I have been a busy dog because my Mom has this new seizure disorder and its up to me to keep her home when she needs to. I also let her know when it's time to take me for my walk, my neighbors like me too.
My mom won't let me leave the yard but the other day I had to wake mom up and take her outside so she could call 911 for the neighbor lady who was having a heart attack. The firemen tried to take me with them but my mom, and I,, both said no.
It's starting to warm up and we have lots of birds and squirrels,. My mom doesn't like me chasing the squirrels, or the birds because we have a nest in one of the trees. She said we have to be quiet. Maybe I can send you a pic of the baby birds? I'll try.
Have a happy spring, my mom and are going to!
Love, Betty
