Tan-Enhancing Manicure

5/12/2015



Let this be known - I don't have a tan. Maybe the sun has lightly kissed my skin during long walks I've been enjoying the past few days but that's far from anything that could be called a tan. Besides, I have been sporting heavy layers of SPF-packed creams and lotions. However, thanks to this stunner, my skin does look like I've been sporting a tan and compliments have been flying right and left! I'm not impressed by every nail polish I've tried from Catrice but this one has won my heart, big time. I am also happy to report that the brush goes really well with the texture of the nail polish. Most importantly - the color is beyond gorgeous! Catrice Ultimate Nail Lacquer in A Gallon Of Melon (82) is the perfect spring/summer shade which makes nails and fingers look long and lean and tan very sun-kissed.

Zelim da se zna - moja koza nije osuncana, Mozda je sunce blago dotaklo tokom dugih setnji u kojima sam uzivala posljednjih dana no to je daleko od konkretne ideje suncanja + kozu sam zastitila kremama sa UV zastitnim faktorom. Ipak, mislim da sam zahvaljujuci ovom ljepotanu uspjela da kreiram iluziju osuncane koze a imam takvu pretpostavku posto sam dobila dosta komplimenata dok sam upravo njega prosetala na svojim noktima. Iskreno govoreci, nije me svaki lak za nokte od Catrice brenda odusevio no ovaj je ucinio upravo to - pa cak i mnogo vise. Takodjer mi je drago sto mogu prijaviti da se cetkica odlicno slaze sa teksturom samog laka i zajedno stvaraju poeziju. Sto je najbitnije - boja laka je fantasticno lijepa! Catrice Ultimate lak za nokte u nijansi A Gallon Of Melon 82 (cca 5-6KM) je savrsena proljetno/ljetna nijansa koja cini da nokti i prsti izgledaju izduzeno a koza obljubljena suncem.



Catrice in A Gallon Of Melon comes with an indeed improved brush - it's less round and suits the shape of my nail beds perfectly! I really love and approve this improvement so now I just need two swipes with this brush to cover the entire nail plate - genius! The color I'd describe as a salmony pinky/peach borderline muted neon coral. It doesn't look as complicated as it sounds but it truly is beautiful. There is no shimmer added and a creamy, thick texture makes this shade stand apart from many similar ones. I'm really happy with the opacity - full coverage with just two coats (third one isn't needed at all!) and it dries rather quickly. I love everything about this nail polish but there is room for improvement in the longevity department. This one lasts for approx 3 days on my nails, without a base and/or top coat. If it could last for 5 days, I'd be over the moon! I really love this one and the fact it makes my hands look more tanned is an added bonus!

Catrice u vec spomenutoj, prekrasnoj nijansi A Gallon Of Melon dolazi sa poboljsanom cetkicom koja je manje zaobljena i iznenadilo me kako u milimetar odgovara obliku i bazi mojih noktica. Jako mi se dopada ovo poboljsanje jer zahvaljujuci novom obliku cetkice, u samo dva poteza, sa lakocom prekrijem cijelu nokatnu plocu - sto je genijalno! Nijansu bih opisala kao losos ruzicasto/breskvastu koja granici sa gotovo pa neon koralcem. Ne izgleda tako komplikovano koliko zvuci no nema sumnje da je rijec o divnoj boji. Ne sadrzi shimmer, kremaste je i guste formulacije koja se brzo susi - sve su ovo kvalitete kojima ovaj lak odskace od njemu slicnih nijansi na trzistu. Jako sam zadovoljna sa prekrivnoscu - potpuno prekrivena nokatna ploca u samo dva sloja (treci uopste ali uopste nije potreban!). Sve mi se dopada kod ovog laka no vjerujem da postoji nesto na cemu bi se dodatno moglo poraditi a to je trajnost. Bez baze i nadlaka, Gallon Of Melon izdrzi na mojim noktima cca 3 dana - kada bi se trajnost mogla produziti na recimo 5 dana, bila bih izuzetno zadovoljna! Prijatno sam iznenadjena a cinjenica da uz ovaj lak moje ruke djeluju vitko i osuncano, samo je bonus koji je itekako dobrodosao!
