Adorned Nails: Catrice Forget-Me-Not



If poison were purple, this would be it.

Come to think of it, Catrice did have another purple in its previous collection, appropriately named Poison Me, Poison You, which was also lethal-looking but had less bling than this one here.

Just like Catrice Purplelized which I wore in April, Forget-Me-Not is dense with silver micro-glitters (unfortunately, it's not a holo). Purplelized is an aubergine purple, easy on the eye. Forget-Me-Not, on the other hand, is a gaudy purple, wicked and deadly.


I should mention that Forget-Me-Not looks like GOSH Gasoline (based on placing the bottles side-by-side). Dupe? In real life, you may not be able to tell the difference at a glance but Gasoline's micro-glitters are blue/purple/silver. I will do a better comparison on nails when I feature Gasoline later.

I have to say that I haven't had any problems with this latest range of Catrice polishes. I had such an easy time applying this polish, especially with the broad brush. You're looking at two coats. I wore Forget-Me-Not for four days (no top coat) with only very slight chipping which started on the third day.


This is what it looks like in sunlight:


I must emphasise what good value this is: only €2.49 for 10ml. And gorgeous, if you love purples.

This is a gorgeous color . It's almost the glitter equivalent to CG Coconut Kiss .

I agree, it's a gorgeous purple!
I want a Catrice Polish, it seems to be great!
And it's a cruelty free brand ;)

Adis said...

Yep, it's a really beautiful blingy purple :). I have it myself and I'm so happy with it! It's great with Poison Me Poison You as a skittle manicure ;). They fit each other so well and despite the bling and purple, which can be a bit too over the top, they look pretty classy together :D.

A-mazing colour! And I really love the angles from which you took pictures; it's so refreshing to see new angles! IMO, Gasoline looks to be more sheer, but colourwise they look pretty close (I have yet to get Forget-Me-Not though). :)

@Toyomi
It could be. I haven't got Coconut Kiss but I've googled it up. You're probably right. :)

@Zuzu's Petals
Haha, thanks, Zuzu! Yes, it's very me - lethal and evil. ;D

@D. Sadie
It's so nice of you to drop by and thank you for your very kind words. You've got a lovely blog there, Dinah! :)

@FOREVER '92
Thank you! You're very kind to say that. :) And it's one cool purple, this one!

@PolishMePink!
I really like this current batch of Catrice polishes. I can't complain. :)

@Adis
I figured you would have bought this too, since you had said you liked Poison Me, Poison You so much. Ooh, a purple Skittles with alternate bling! Heh heh! That's a funky idea. :)

@Jette Fromm
Thank you so much for your kind words! It's very nice to know that you appreciate the effort I put into taking my pictures. Also, thanks for your input on Gasoline. I will have to try Gasoline on my nails when I have the time. :)

@Caramel Diva
Thanks! :)

@rock-or-not
It's great that you have this one. One couldn't possibly ignore its royal gorgeousness in the store, eh? :)

@Cynthia
I'm glad you like this lethal potion! :)

@sugar sugar
Thanks so much, my dear! :D

@Anutka
Thank you, Anutka. :)

@KTee
Haha! I'm glad to hear that (that you love this polish) (not that you're short-circuiting your keyboard with your drool). ;D

Witoxicity said...

@Nicole
Thank you, Nicole! You've made my day! :D

@Binara
I'm glad you like this, Binara. Thanks. :)

kavitha said...

gorgeous colour! i love purple!! :P

Witoxicity said...

@kavitha
Yay! I love purple on nails too. :)

BlackCherry said...

Wow, Forget-Me-Not rocks but I prefer Purplelized.

Cosnova must be losing originality because there is another nail polish from Essence with the same name, this one is blue-lavender (from Blossoms etc... Trend Edition).

Witoxicity said...

@BlackCherry
I agree. Cosnova does seem to be recycling names, even within the same brand. I've seen the same with their Stampy Design Plates and one other suspicious polish. It's very confusing! :P

(So) Originail said...

It is very similar to "Gosh gasoline" LOVE IT TOO <3

PolishSis said...

I'm not really into purple polishes, but when I saw this one I needed to buy it, it was so sparkly!
Looks so good on you and WOW four days wear without topcoat, I'm impressed.

Witoxicity said...

@PolishSis
Thank you! Oh, yes yes, sparkly / glittery = PolishSis. ;D These Catrice polishes fair quite well on the durability front. Kudos to Catrice!
