NOTD: Catrice – Sold Out For Ever (240) .. or hai Chanel Jade dupe!

I am so sorry that I have been MIA in the last week. I’ve been so busy that I couldn’t blog. :(

Today I wanted to show you my current manicure – China Glaze’s Strawberry Fields – but the minute I wanted to take pictures the sun disappeared.

But then I remembered that I haven’t posted the swatches of one of my current favorite nail polishes yet: Catrice’s Sold Out For Ever. I still have to snicker when I read this name. πŸ˜€
I haven’t seen Chanel’s Jade in person but guessing from all the swatches I have seen of Jade this one is pretty close.
The only difference (IMO) could be the density of the shimmer. In some swatches it looks as if Jade is a tiny bit more shimmery than Sold Out For Ever.

Let’s take a closer look at this gorgeous mint green:

Picture crazy? Me? Naaw! πŸ˜€

I love this color. The mint green.. the soft green shimmer.. love it! But the formula could have been better. Its on the thick side and I needed three coats for a nice and even finish and the application wasn’t easy. But a few drops of nail polish thinner should fix this. :)

What I also love about this (and all the other Catrice nail polishes) is the price. For 2,49 EUR you can’t go wrong.
I hope that tomorrow the Catrice display finally will be refilled because I still have a few Catrice nail polishes on my wishlist and also quite a few on a CP list. πŸ˜€

Thanks for looking, have a great weekend and take care! :)

      Lucky you! πŸ˜€
      The shimmer of Jade does look more visible in your picture.
      Jade was never even released in Germany. I am still mad at Chanel because of this. Sold Out For Ever does comfort me, though. :)

  1. *big hugs for you hun* I am so sad that the stores we called still didn’t get new shipments.. or even their first shipment with the new Catrice nail polishes, Susanne. *hug* :(

    Haha Jackie! Jade really seems to be an unban legend. πŸ˜€

    It is, Tenns. I am looking forward to wear it again. :)

    Catrice is a German drugstore brand from the same manufacturer as Essence, Lachelle. I am crossing my fingers that Catrice will come to the US as well. :)

    Honestly, has ANYONE seen the elusive Chanel Jade?? I’m starting to think it is an urban legend, LOL!
