Catrice ♥ Heavy Metallilac & Genius In The Bottle

Review and swatches nail polish by Catrice Heavy Metallilac and Genius In The Bottle
Recently I have bought a couple of the new Catrice polishes. I picked up Heavy Metallilac and Genius In The Bottle. These two looked so gorgeous in the bottle at the store, I had to have them. I also got two of the LE Million Styles effect top coats.

Catrice introduced 14 new Ultimate Nail Lacquer colors this year. They have also given the polishes a better quality brush! The new brush is thicker and shaped round. This makes applying polish in a curve close to the cuticle a lot easier. And you only need two streakes to cover the entire nail surface. Here is a comparison of the old and new brush. 

Let's get on to the swatches! First up is Heavy Metallilac. This one is a purple with violet sheen. It's very tricky to get the color right in pictures. Below it seems to be cooler and darker. I needed two coats for a good coverage.

Genius In The Bottle is a super nice duochrome. This polish reminds me of the Egyptian gold scarabs, I love it! The color shifts from gold to bronze and green. It's very difficult to see the blue color as in the bottle. I needed 4 coats for a good coverage. I've read that it's a great dupe of the famous Peridot by Chanel.
