Nail Polish Lottery Club ~ Week 2
Posted January 20, 2013on:
For those of you new to my blog, first of all Welcome and secondly, this is a series I do every Sunday where I use a polish from my collection I haven’t worn before. My friend Diana came up with the brilliant idea to pick the polish for the Sunday manicure of un-trieds by lottery. Every Monday Diana will go to random.org to generate a random number. This is the number all of us participating will use for that week. This weeks number was 187.
Catrice London’s Weather Forecast. This was number 16 on my list of un-tried polish. This weeks number was 187, since I don’t have 187 I added 1+8+7=16 and Catrice’s London’s Weather Forecast was the winner. I love this polish. I love the cream finish, completely opaque in 2 coats, no sign of the dreaded VNL (visible nail line). And I think the color is great. It goes well with my skin. It is most definetly gray but in some lights it can look blue.
Catrice is a German company and their polish is made in Hamburg, it is available in the UK, I believe it is a drug store polish priced at €5.99? I know it is more money than the Barry M polish but it is still an affordable nail polish. They have a great range of colors and they have some of the cutest names I’ve seen on polishes. I have several Catrice polish through the kindness of my friends who live in the UK and I am very grateful for all the ones I have. Thanks to Nicky and Diana I have this one, along with Hip Queens Wear Blue Jeans, Dirty Berry, Welcome to Roosywood, How I Matt your Mother and the list goes on.
I have had this polish on for 3 days now. I used my normal base coat of Nail Envy by OPI, 2 coats of the polish and a top coat of butter LONDON Hardware. I do not even see any visible signs of tip wear. Which usually after a day or so that happens but not with this polish. If Catrice is a polish available in a store near you, you are a lucky duck, and I would highly recommend you picking up a bottle to try. I don’t think you would be disappointed.
If you would like to join in on the fun check out the guidelines for the Nail Polis Lottery Club here.
Diana also made a Facebook page that has had a lot of interest, it has been fun seeing everyone’s post in one place, please go there and like us, if you want! You can find our Facebook page here
This has been a lot of fun, I enjoy seeing what everyone’s results are and I also enjoy hearing about everyone’s numbers of un-trieds. I’ve heard everything from zero (really? Zero?) to I believe 193 is the highest we have in the club. if you would lie to participate, it is so simple, the first thing you need to Odis make a numbered list of your un- tried polish. The list can be organized however you want. I did mine by company, alphabetically, but like I said u can do your however you want. Some people do it by color, some by formal and some are just random. I promise there are no Nail Polish Lottery Club police out there so, make your list, let Diana know your final number and then on Monday when she draws a new number you will know which polish to wear.
The other thing I wanted to say is there is no required time you have to wear your polish. If its one you really don’t like, then change it, at least you got one of your un-trieds marked off the list and by changing it maybe yo will knock off 2! But dont sweat it if you don’t like it, change it.
