Catrice: Grand Bleu

Catrice: Grand Bleu
Bright blue shimmer

Have you ever experienced to buy a gorgeous polish and then when you come home with it and pull the brush up, then it's so sheer that you almost lose interest because you just know that it's going to take a lot of coats to make it opaque? That's what I experienced with "Grand Bleu" from Catrice.

Today's the day where I'm going to do it. We have already established that the polish is sheer. It took four coats to achieve full opacity and the drying time is average.

I attached a Hello Kitty-sticker on my middle nail and some hearts on my pointer. I made white and pink dots on my nails as well to make the manicure come together.

Here is the final result, including a layer of topcoat.

Isn't this pretty?

This is "Grand Bleu" alone; four coats and no topcoat yet.

Here are the things I used today.

"Grand Bleu" is really pretty. I like the colour a lot and the shimmer is super pretty. FOUR coats however, that's more than my patience can handle.

Number of coats: 4
Drying time: Average
Finish: Shimmer
Overall impression: Super pretty, nice colour and shimmer. Too sheer though.
Buy again: No


  1. It's a pity that it needs 4 coats, because the shade is really beautiful! Hello Kitty stickers are very cute! :-)

    1. Thank you and yes, four coats, that is just too much for my patience :D
