Nail Polish Haul

Haul happens. I got 12 polish bottles in two days. Does that mean I need help?

I couldn't help myself when I found a completely new Catrice stand in the store. We used to get nail polish only, but now it was a full display with all the cosmetics. I've been good and only bought three shades: I'm a Star (golden olive shimmer), In the Bronx (bronze shimmer) and Sir! Yes, Sir! (military green-ish grey).
Then I moved over to the Essence stand and there was almost untuched display of the newest Urban Messages Trend Edition. None of the polishes convinced me, so I only got a lipstick and I'll show it to you in some other post. I had to buy three Multi Dimension polishes, just because they're being discontinued and they were only €0.99. I got Must Have, Replay and Movin' On. Couldn't resist the little ones either, I got Out of my Mind and Hard to Resist which is a new shade. I can't believe I didn't get Gabriella, the base color from the nail art twins before.


I managed to find some Manhattan polishes from the Hands Up! Limited Edition as well. They were only €2.39 each and they're awesome: very opaque, great formula and amazing staying power. Urban Jungle survived washing a huge pile of dishes. I was really stunned. Twice to be exact. When I tried to remove it, I found out that my nails are completely green. This honey stains!

Manhattan, NY Skyline, 2 coats

Manhattan, Urban Jungle, 2 coats

Catrice, I'm a Star..., 3 coats

What do you think about these new (for me) shades?

Thanks for looking and commenting!

    You picked some great colors, and my wallet is happy that we don't have Manhattan here!

  5. I really like the Manhattan NY Skyline, BUT I have been wearing a Manhattan nail polish (Limited Edition Lotus Effect Nail Polish in 13) the last few days and I am superdisappointed with it. Lousy formula, tough application and it started chipping within _hours_. So I'm going to wait a while before I buy a new Manhattan nail polish. Too bad, because they are one of the brands that haven't been testing on animals for decades already.

  12. Haha, yesterday I picked up Star and Bronx too (as well as few other babies) - I had bumped on a Catrice stand. We all need help, I'm afraid, but let's keep rockin' \m/

  13. The last nail polish from Catrice you show, looks like another one from the LE Papagena. I think the name was 'Welcome to the Jungle' or something like that.

  16. Just beautiful polishes. Love the greens. You never know when a polish will stain your nails. I got an awful stain from Sinful Colors, Mermaid Tears. My nails went to a deep yellow. Ick! Still love the polish though. That won't stop me from using it again.
