Catrice Limited Edition Celtica

It hasn't even been Winter here but we are already longing for Spring.
At least, I am, and especially colorwise.
I'm loving the soft pastels and brighter colors.

Catrice's new limited edition "Celtica" is a nice transition towards these Spring colors.

It comes with 4 limited lacquers and pink/magenta nail flakes (crushed shell).
I only bought the lacquers.

From left to right:
- C01 Paralilac
- C02 Pinkadoxa
- C03 Love, Peach & Harmony
- C04 LOVEnder
 
I haven't got swatches for you but if you want me to swatch one or more...please let me know!
 
I did make a nail art with it.
 
As base I used C04 LOVEnder. Two coats was enough for good coverage.
Then I used C02 Pinkadoxa and C03 Love, Peach & Harmony to watermarble.
The polishes are quite thick (which should be as they are supposed to give a kind of gel look) and therefore hard to use for watermarbling.
Maybe a little thinner can do the trick...
 
However...this didn't completely turn out the way I wanted so I did some touching up with the same two polishes and a nail art brush.
The complete base color (C04) was covered and when I'm showing a limited edition I think you must at least see all the colors.
Therefore on each nail (except the accent) I placed two stripes with C04 LOVEnder.
On the accent I used C01 Paralilac to paint the heart accent as it's almost Valentine :D

  4. We are thinking alike. I am so tired of winter and the cold weather that I brought home two Spring colors yesterday, Pure Ice's Laven-Dare and Shore Bet. The Peach And Harmony is my favorite of your four.
