NOTD: Catrice Allure from “Thrilling Me Softly” Collection

Posted on: September 28, 2013

Recently I received the nicest nail mail from my friend Carla , who lives in Germany and writes a great nail blog. I hope you check her out, she has an amazing collection of CHANEL, both new and vintage that she so generously shares with all of us.

From the selection she sent, I thought the first one I would try would be the Catrice Florlliac but actually the first one was Allure from Catrice’s Thrilling Me Softly collection, which I believe is a new collection.

Allure from Catrice is one of the prettiest red nail polishes I’ve seen and now own. It is most definitely red, and has just a touch of a metallic finish which gives it so much interest. It is not a metallic finish, it is a cream finish. When the light is just right you do see a bit of metallic. Like I said it is an interesting polish . I’ve enjoyed wearing it the last couple of days, and I know this will be one of my favorites this fall and winter. Especially during the holidays. It’s a great party color.

I just noticed from the pictures I have some clean up to do, which can be expected with a bright red. I did not use an extra base coat except for my Nail Envy by OPI which as you all know, I never do my nails without Nail Envy first applied to my bare nails.
One of the things I like about Catrice brand of nail polish is they will mark on the bottles things like “Be sure to use a base coat” –Be Pool, a blue polish or This polish requires 2 coats” Sold Out Forever – a very light green/blue . Upfront you know what you’re getting into. Just another of the many reasons I like this brand so much!
Catrice brand is made in Luxembourg, and not available in the states, except I did find it on Amazon. If you go to Amazon you will find a good selection of 12-15 Catrice nail polish. If you haven’t tried it yet, what are you waiting for? It is a great polish. The round bottles are .33 ounce, and the brush is a little bit wider then say a Revlon brush, but not as wide as Wet N Wild Mega Last or Sally Hansen CSM. The brush is very manageable.
You know I’m giving this one 5/5 stars ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ. Great color, great brand and great friends is what I think of when I hear the name Catrice and I hope you all get a chance to try it.

Please let me know if you do!

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

Lovely colour on you, Judi.
I read a lot about Catrice, someday I’ll have to try a couple of shades.

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
