Essence and Catrice - brands new to me

Just got back from good ol' Croatia. Love it. Love it.
Didn't do much shopping. Just got 2 polishes.

I think they cost 14 kune in total. That's £1.75 now I come to think about it. For two! The Essence bottles (some of them) have these pretty striped caps. This is a bog-standard lilac, I know, but I had to have a striped top and most of them did not possess the much-coveted stripes.

Clay-ton, My Hero

What's that all about? Bonkers.

I'm going to try this first. I bet it's sheer as all-get-out so I'll layer it over something.

This is Porec. The easiest way to get to our hotel was by water taxi. My daughter and her fiance thought they were in an episode of Miami Vice because we got one that was very plush and the driver-fella went very fast and waggled it (I'm well-known for my grasp of nautical vocabulary, don't you know) from side to side and kicked up a lot of spray. I loved it too, I must admit.

Back to posting some actual nail polishes soon but I've got three straight days of work looming. How did 5 weeks and 2 days go so fast?



  1. haha you defenitely underestimate catrice! they even have onecoaters! i love the formula and the price of them.

  2. I wish I'd got some more. I don't know why we can't get them in the UK!

  3. Good choices! I have a couple of those striped caps now in different swaps; I think there were only three or four in that collection, but I could be wrong.

  4. Loving that Clay-ton colour. I'd love a travelogue on Croatia even more. I've often considered going. xxx

  5. Welcome back, this is a great vacation haul, not too much and some unusual polishes and I'm loving that Catrice color, can't wait to see it on!

  6. Welcome back! The water taxi sounds fab, hope you had a lovely time!

  7. ooh you picked some pretty ones
    what a lovely place to vacation

  8. Hello again, meine Lieblinge!
