Catrice - Mint Me Up

Hello all!

Today I have some swatches of a gorgeous polish for you!

I don't know if you remember my polish haul from a few weeks ago (here's the blogpost), but this Catrice polish was one of my many buys.

It's called Mint Me Up, and it's a mint green (what else right, with that name?) polish with a shimmer of gold in it.

You can already see this shimmer in the bottle, and it's also very clear in the first picture above and the one here below:

Pretty, right? :) This polish looks very lovely - I just adore the little specks of gold in it.
I used three coats here for full coverage and the polish was very easy to apply.

In the picture above you can see the specks of gold more clearly (instead of the shimmer, I mean).

So normally, when a lot of light hits my nails, the mint green polish has a golden shimmer.
But when it's a bit more in the shade, you see these tiny dark spots in the polish - those are the gold flecks, but they look blackish when light doesn't hit them directly. I hope you can see what I mean :)

I really like this polish! I already have a polish in a similar colour called Miss Minty by Gosh, but that one is just plain mint green - I've used this polish in this and this design, if you're interested :)

Mint Me Up is very unique in my collection because of the gold shimmer, and it makes the polish instantly more special and spectacular :)

I hope you like it as much as I do! Thanks for reading!


  1. Yes, it's gorgeous!:) That's good that we can see this glitter on nails not only in the bottle:)

    1. Yes, sometimes a polish looks very different in the bottle than on your nails (frustrating!), but luckily that's not the case here! Thank you :)
