My Picks from Essence & Catrice




Following on from Karen's outstanding dupe find for Deborah Lippmann's Across the Universe over on Lovely Girlie Bits I had to hot foot it to Dunnes to check it out. Had to.

Both Essence and Catrice have some fab offerings on the stands right now for €2.69 and €1.29 respectively. Rude.Not. To.


Fancy a goo?




Blues Brother Vol. ll. A deep royal navy with bright blue shimmer.





Marylin & Me. A sumptuous red with bright micro red glitter. The perfect Crimbo season polish.




After Eight. An intense black, grey, teal metallic with more than a sniff of Chanel Black Pearl!




High Spirits is a light khaki with silverish sheen. Vay understated. 




Let's Get Lost. A bright, bright blue, really beautiful in real life. 




Just in Case is a bronzey, brown metallic. Can be built up for a deeper colour. 




Sure Azure is a pastel sky blue with a whitish/silver sheen. Will be featuring in upcoming NOTD, folks!


In Style is navy, teal metallic. Much like Catrice's After Eight but different enough to make me part with €1.29. It might be my favourite of the whole bunch.




Time for Romance is a raspberry pink semi tranluscent with hexagonal & micro pink glitters. Beautiful alone or over pinks e.g. Sally Hansen Raisin the Bar (above). 





Finally the polish that I came for. Blue Addicted is the Deborah Lippmann dupe. A transluscent blue with blue  & green hexagonal & micro glitters. Would be perfect for a Galaxy mani, non?


Anything tickle your fancy?
