Catrice - Dirty Berry

Purple scattered holo  




I'm still growing my nails out after a series of breaks.  It's been 6 months since the mega-stress of wedding planning which seemed to really take it out on my nails and I've had 7 out of 10 break.  Which means I'm mining Picasa for old swatches I haven't shared - this one is from 2011!

Dirty Berry is a dusky lilac fine scattered holo.  The holo effect isn't strong and out of the sun it looks more like a silver speckle.

Swatch shown is 2 coats with top coat as I dinged one of my fingers

I love this, the muted blue toned purple is lovely and although the holo isn't super strong it adds up to a very pretty polish.

  1. LOVE Dirty Berry, I just don't understand why they discontinued it as it was by far one of the best shades. Looks great on you. I'm half way through my bottle however and I've not found anything similar

  2. I love this shade and have it too!
    Is Catrice available in the UK and if so where?

    1. Sadly not, I picked this up in Germany. I think it is, like a lot of 'European' brands, available in Ireland though - common currency and all that...

  3. WOW, that was a lot of breaks :(
    Dirty Berry is such a pretty polish, it's a pity it was discontinued last year...

    1. Yes, I'm trying to nourish them with Barielle Strengthener Cream, biotin and sporadic Renunail and hope they grow back...
