I got this Catrice Polish from Elodie @ Accropolish a while ago, but with the release of the Pirates of the Caribbean OPI collection, it was put on the back-burner. Finally I was able to wear it and it is gorgeous!
Catrice I Scream Peach Alone
This polish was ALMOST a 1 coater, but I had a little bit of translucence to cover with the 2nd coat.
Catrice I Scream Peach and I Lily Love You
I Lilly Love You darkens it a bit and makes it more pink toned. I think next time I’d do it to the whole manicure so it looks the same.
I read multiple nail polish blogs and on one of the swatches of I Lilly Love You from the Nice Stems collection, a commenter asked how it’d compare to Teenage Dream from the Katy Perry collection. Although I personally didn’t think they’d compare, since I just got both of them in the past 2 days, I decided to compare the two.
I don’t really find them to be identical at all. Personally, I prefer Teenage Dream on it’s own with my skintone, but I think I Lilly Love You would look better layered over other colors, which I’ll have to experiment with.
This color exceeded my expectations. I wasn’t expecting this to be so pretty at all! I thought the formula was good, as I didn’t need more than 2 coats for a flawless finish. Sparrow Me The Drama is a slightly dusty medium toned pink. I thought China Glaze’s Glam would be a good pair with this, although it’s not my favorite combo for this glitter (which I will swatch on here eventually!), I still like the small and medium sized pink glitter over this shade!
This is the same OPI Stranger Tides mani I just posted, but I decided to add this cool mosaic nail effect that I saw on Liquid Jelly. It’s so cool! (Tutorial by Liquid Jelly, hence why I didn’t do one.
I didn’t have extremely high hopes for this nail polish, but I still thought it’d be in the middle ranks from this collection. Boy, was I wrong. I LOVE THIS NAIL POLISH. I’d say it is my 2nd favorite so far (I think I have 1 left), but my favorite to date is Skull and Glossbones. Stranger Tides is pretty much a flawless application in 2 coats. I am trying a new topcoat and I think that helped it out a lot too because my last one was a streaky mess.
Say it with me….GORGEOUS.
P.S. I have a nail art post coming up tomorrow with this same manicure- It’s a ring finger detail 😉
