NOTD: Nail Mail from a Friend ~ Catrice Will You Berry Me?

Posted on: August 7, 2013

Will You Berry Me? From Catrice is a gorgeous berry cream. 1 coat would have more than adequate, but I did do 2 coats and (gasp!) no top coat! I feel as if I’m half naked. I received the sweetest package of nail mail from my friend in Germany. She sent me 2 Catrice and 1 Essence along with some Dior eye cream samples. (The samples were to throw off the customs) and it worked. Although I’ve had problems with receiving packages mailed from the UK, Germany doesn’t seem to be as strict, but nevertheless I am not going to identify my friend or link her blog, just in case. I would hate for her to get into trouble.
Catrice Nail Polish is made in Luxemburg, it is a drug store polish although I believe itis more expensive than Barry M. Catrice has some of the cutest names for their polish, Hip Queens Wear Blue Jeans always cracks me up! The polish itself is very high quality and could easily, in my opinion be a high end polish. It reminds me of Estรฉe Lauder polishes with the way the formula is so smooth and easy to apply. The brushes are shorter, with a flatter brush, but not as wide as Wet n Wild Mega Last or Sally Hansen CSM. You can purchase Catrice through Amazon. I never have, but just be sure to check out the seller’s feedback profile before ordering and I’m sure it will be fine. I give every Catrice polish I’ve tried 5/5 stars ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ Not a clunker in the bunch!

These are Even More Heavy Metallilac and the original Heavy Metallilac. I wanted you to se them side by side so you can see the difference. The Even More Heavy Metallilac is a much deeper, richer purple. Heavy Metallilac was my Mom’s all time favorite polish. It will be a while before I can wear that one. i am so happy to have Even More Heavy Metallilac and I would have worn it first, but the Will You Berry Me? matches my dress perfectly. I have a Service League meeting to go to today, otherwise I would be rocking Even More Heavy Metallilac for sure.

This is Ice, Ice Baby from Essence Ice Cream series. What a perfect lady like pink. We all need those in certain occasions!

Thanks so much to my sweet friend who lives in Germany. I really appreciate you sending these to me. And, oh btw, if you want to check out a great blog from Germany ๐Ÿ˜‰

๐Ÿ’… As always, thanks for stopping by!

What a sweet friend! Can you think of an American polish that is similar in color as the berry me shade? I think it is so pretty.


Really a pretty shade, ๐Ÿ™‚ Thanks for showing it (and for your kind words), I’m also looking forward to the Essence one and Even More Heavy Metallilac, but please take your time.

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
