Sometimes you're avoiding something and then you realize you've wanted it from the start. This was the case with Catrice I Wear My Sunglasses at Night nail polish. I never even gave it a second look while it was available in the Catrice core line. It seemed like another 'not a plain black, but not far from it' shade. I have enough of those, I thought. I bought it anyway, when my local drug store got some discontinued Catrice shades (this one was amongst them) and reduced the price a bit. How wrong could I go for 2€ and knowing this polish still has the good old brush?
Close up of the polish in the bottle: you can see all the different sized glass flecks in all the colors of the rainbow. So pretty.
Catrice, I Wear My Sunglasses at Night, 2 coats
I Wear Sunglasses at Night is one of those shades that never look as good on the photos as they look in real life. It's quite boring and mediocre when you look at it here, but that's not the case in reality. This might become one of my 'go to' shades (like Guppy 64) which I put on when I don't feel like experimenting with other colors and trying to match my nails with what I wear. This will go with everything.
The quality of this polish is OK, but it definitely could be better. I didn't have any ,major problems with the application - just some bald spots. I couldn't really blame it on bad opacity, since I only applied 2 coats, so I guess I must be the formula. I don't mind though. I love this one. =)
Do you have a favorite 'not a plain black, but not far from it' shade? Which one is it?
