16 George Blueney

Desiree Dewing

The Catrice brand really provides affordable yet quality products. I recently bought the Ultimate Nail Lacquer in the colour 16 George Blueney. The bottle looks stylish with a black lid, and the brush is wide for great application. This colour is a dark shade of blue that shimmers in the light. It also lasted quite a few days without chipping. Definitely worth a try if you haven’t used this brand yet.

After reading about this new affordable but supposedly good quality nail varnish, I bought 2 bottles and couldn’t wait to try them! I got a peachy nude colour as well as a golden glittery shade which looked amazing in the bottle. But…

The glittery shade was terrible and clumpy and had very little shine, rather a coarseness to it. The staying power of the normal polish was not great at all (2 days with a base and top coat) but the glitter polish was resistant to cutex remover and required lots of rubbing and picking.

Sometimes you get what you pay for, which in this case was true for me…

Love this


Long lasting, vibrant colors and very well priced!

Ultimate Nail Lacquer: 840 Genius In The Bottle

Priya Nunkumar

To tell you the truth, I heard of Catrice but I really didn’t know the products were available at DisChem and were quite affordable, I was walking around DisChem when I came across the Catrice section, I had a look at the nail polishes and I was hooked. The polishes were so bold and exquisite, and they had certain polishes which were dimension polishes (polishes which change colour when you turns your nails.

I purchased 840 Genius In The Bottle, which is a dimension polish,the colours change between gold, turquoise, green and blue. I actually really liked the colour in the bottle which is why I purchased it, I also love dimension polishes (I have a collection of Yardley Twist Polishes which are dimension polishes).

As soon as I opened the bottle I was happy to see the application brush was wide enough to paint my nails perfectly without streaks and lines, because the polish has dimensions, imperfections can’t really be seen. The colour is so intense that I actually only needed one coat of the polish.

The polish took less than 5 minutes to dry, and had a beautiful finish, the polish felt sheer on my nails, and my nails felt like they had no polish on at all. The polish has a lovely colour and texture and I will certainly be purchasing different colours.

I’d recommend this product to anyone who loves nail polishes which are unusual and stylish. This product is also very economical and cost around R35 which I feel is very affordable for a nail polish like this.

I bought the Catrice nail lacquer in a cerise colour because I just loved the colour. After I tried it on my nails, I had to go back and get more colours. Now I mix and match the colours and use the glitter versions as well to create awesome nail art that gets compliments regularly.

Great Colours

I love the colours and textures of Catrice nail polish, but I’m not keen on the thick brush and the polish tends to start wearing off the nail tips after the second day of wear.
