Mani(c) Monday: the one that I won...

I have been wearing Catrice GoldFinger on my nails quite a bit since I purchased it. It's very safe to say that I totally love it, and it may be my favourite shade that I have ever bought. Ever.

But I am a bit busy at the moment so the tips are starting to wear, I am too busy/lazy to redo the whole nail, so I got creative...

To prolong the life of my mani and add a bit of interest, I dug out my trusty Avon Matte varnish in Black as Night, and used good old masking tape to tape of a bit of a way down my nail, and gave it two coats. This Matte polish dries super quickly, and it looks Gorgeous.

I know black and gold has been a bit of a recurring theme lately...and I know from experience, this matte polish chips and wears like a mofo... so it needs a top coat.

Enter "The One I Won". Catrice Million Styles Effect Top Coat C04 Shake It! Flake It!: Holo coloured flakes suspended in in a clear varnish. Since the Million Styles Limited Edition range didn't make it to my village, I was super chuffed when I won this one in a fab goodie box from the lovely Marian on

The flakes are a greeny blue if you hold your hands one way, and a fiery reddish orange if you turn your hand the other...

It doesn't show on the gold polish, but holy smokes, it is something else over black...

 And so, my mani will do for another few days... and its looking good...


  1. Damn you! I want all 3 of those now!

    1. Hahah, its a pity, cos those Catrice top coats were Limited editions that only made it onto a few stands around the country :(

      Goldfinger is still on the stand in Bradleys though!

  2. Jaysiz that's a great idea I'd never think of doing that

  3. That is stunning! <3
