Nail Polish Lottery Club ~ Week 15 ~ Catrice

Posted on: April 21, 2013

This week’s # NPLClub’s number was 21. As I organize my un-tried polish by brand and then by color, this put me right in the middle of the Catrice I have on my list. One thing I learned, the hard way, is that most of the Catrice polishes I had on my list of un-tried should not have been on there! For my 1st #21 was a Catrice called “Hip Queens Wear Blue Jeans”. I have worn that to death! The bottle is all but empty. Then on the list was How I Matt Your Mother another one of my favorites that I have worn over and over again, so that left me with Dirty Berry:

Catrice Dirty Berry is right up my alley as far as color and texture go. I love this polish and I don’t know how it is on my un-tried list. This is a mixture of blue and purple, its not exactly blue and not exactly purple either. It’s like that favorite pair of jeans you wear around the house but you change out of if you’re going to the grocery store. To be honest with you, I think it got pushed to the back and forgot about. I think it is so pretty, you better believe I’ll be wearing this one a lot this spring/summer.

One of the things I like about this polish is it still has the smaller brush than the newer Catrice, with their short , fat brushes. huh?. I know I usually love the short, fat brushes but not this time, I like this brush. It picked up just the right amount of polish and there was no flooding of the cuticles. With “Steel Her Heart” and “How I Matt Your Mother you have to be careful because those short, fat little brushes pick up way too much polish and just when you think all is well, dang there goes a drop and next thing you know, you’ve got flooded cuticles. Another thing I learned the hard way!

As I was cleaning out a cupboard this week I found an old caboodle, inside the old caboodle was full of model paint and this small bear. This small bear is named Jilly Bear. That was the spelling and everything on the package so of course I had to have her and now I have her with me always. I haven’t shown Jilly yet but I told Drew about it. He wants the caboodle, he was more excited about that than anything. He said he remembered the girls always had their caboodles for make up and nail polish and he never had one so one year for his Christmas money he bought this one and kept his model paint in it. Who knew? I figured he would be happy about the model paint! ( I was hoping to use the caboodle for myself ).

Just had to show my 553 in Scrabble! Let’s see you beat that score Bryan?
And that was me playing the computer! So bring it on……. 😊

💅 As always, thanks for stopping by.

I’ll have to put my thinking cap on for this one! Have you tried Zoya? Right now they are having a great Earth day sale


And if you use this link above, you will get 100 points into your account which is good for a free bottle. The link I put in is for blue polish and it take sou through the steps of buying blue polish, cool, warm, frost, cream, etc… That link is only good if you haven’t signed up for them before. But regardless, they are a good place to start for that color. Good luck, let me know what you find out! Xoxo– Judi

Thanks for the suggestions.


I did order 6 zoya polishes,but I had to pay a bit for shipping but that is fine. One of the polishes I ordered is Bevin. That is supposed to be a sage, not mint,green. You are such a thoughtful person. We were stationed at Mountain Home, ID years ago.


That is a good sale they are having, I hope you got in on the sale, right? Bevin is a gorgeous. Color. One of my favorites. You will like it. I also ordered 6 more Zoya, geez, it’s a sickness I tell ya, a sickness. I got Micky (my dad is Mickey) Bobbi, Diana, Jana, charla, and Carly. I had both Charla and Carly bit gave them away and now I wish I had them so for $4 I got them. Micky looks to be the prettiest. Have you seen it? Or Rocky? Did you like Mt Home? I’ve never been there except to drive by on the freeway. I am in Northern Idaho on the Wa/ID/OR border. I can’t wait to see if you like Bevin. 😊

Betty’s Blog

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
