Catrice London's Weather Forecast + Essence Hello Holo!

Happy Friday again! And also  Happy Earth Day! Did you partake in Zoya's polish exchange? I did! I got Amber, Michelle, Hope, Akyra, Jo, Ibiza, Tallulah, Loredana, Savita, Cheryl, Julienne, Adina, and Happi! I had more, but narrowed down. I'm really trying to be good! I have officially decided that I will be on a no buy until my trip to England/Italy at the end of May.

Tonight, my baby sister (21) is having a Pure Romance party! I decided that yellow wasn't a party color, so I sadly removed my pretty lemon nails and opted for something else! After much debate, I satisfied my craving to play with one of my Swap Newbies, Catrice's London's Weather Forecast!




London's Weather Forecast is a gorgeous slate grey.... It doesn't lean more toward blue or green, like most grey's tend to do. I love this shade! The formula was great: opaque in 2 thin coats. This was my first run with Catrice. Their brushes are more flat and wide than what I'm used to, which I was worried about, but it was surprisingly really easy to use! 

To make LWC more fun and party-appropriate, I did (my first) glitter gradient with Essence Hello Holo, another swap newbie.



Enlarge this one, you won't be disappointed!



Hello Holo is PACKED with small holo glitters in a clear base. It's comparable to the color of China Glaze's Fairy Dust, but the glitter is bigger. The name of this polish is so appropriate... in my head, when I read it, I hear "Hell-loooooooooo Holo!" This is such a fun topper! 

Then, I took to the porch for some coveted sunlight. My nails turned into mini disco balls in the sun!


Enlarge this one too... The middle finger looks neat!
What do you think? Did I pull of a good party nail? :D

  7. Gorgeous! I'm so jealous. We don't get the awesome Essences here. You're right, I do need a swap buddy because I'm clearly missing out!
