Catrice ~ Alluring Night


Catrice ~ Alluring Night
Dark teal/blue with microshimmer

and

B. O. ~ 68
Clear base packed with silver glitter and stars


Alluring Night is from the ‘Welcome To Las Vegas’ limited edition. It’s a very dark blue with microshimmer and it looks absolutely beautiful in the bottle.

The formula was a dream – not too runny, not too thick – and the polish went on effortlessly. No streaks or bald spots and it was almost opaque after the first coat. I gave it two coats anyway, to give the polish the best conditions to impress.

It dried up a bit on the matte side. Here’s how it looks without top coat:


Pretty, no?

But a night needs stars to be alluring for real. So I grabbed a bottle of B. O., which is a clear base packed with glitter and stars, and got ready to do some fishing. Little did I know that fishing wasn’t necessary.  There were stars on the brush every time I pulled it up. In fact, I sometimes had to push some stars off the brush, wanting only two stars on each nail.

The polish smells pretty weird. Not bad, just weird, and drying time is definitely on the slow side. Thank god it only needed one layer of glitters/stars.

Here’s the result, all sealed up with a layer of Color Club’s top coat.


Do you like it? I must admit that I am absolutely in love with the B.O. polish!!

  1. I love it! Talk about a starry starry night!!

    You actually can't see the stars in Vegas well. The lights of the city are too bright.

  2. I love it with the stars on top. This isn't my favourite catrice shade but the B.O polish really brings it to life

    1. The Catrice didn't live up to my expectations either, so it might be finding a new home at some point :)
      That B.O. could easily become a favourite!
