Catrice ~ FuchsCIA



Catrice ~ FuchsCIA
Bright pink with micro silver flecks

I really like Catrice’s polishes. They are always good quality and I can almost always find something I like in their stands.

Today I’m going to show you a pink from the core line. It’s called FuchsCIA, so yes, OPI isn’t the only company that comes up with silly names for their polishes, haha!

The quality is good and easy to work with and it takes two coats to get rid of visible nail line. Drying time between the coats is good. Topcoat definitely enhances the colour so I recommend that.

Here’s two coats plus a layer of topcoat:


Check out them micro silver flecks!


I added purple to the mix! I used a Rimmel from the Space Dust collection called Moon Walking. It’s purple and silver and very glittery and then it’s textured. I dapped a bit onto the nails using a bit of a rough bathing sponge. I kept on sponging until I was satisfied with the effect. Then I applied a layer of topcoat. Moon Walking requires two layers of topcoat to be smoothened out completely so one coat doesn’t ruin the effect.

Here’s my final mani:


I love pink and purple together!


I’m pleased. How do you feel? :)


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Crème with micro flecks
Overall impression: Both of them are really good polishes!
