Although green is one of my favorite make-up color, I’ve never tried it on my nail. At least creamy, pale or dark or smoky green that I see a lot around here was totally not my feeling, so I was really happy when I saw this new Catrice core-line color on the shelf.

It’s a bright viridian green with full of fine green shimmer. This reminds me of malachite. It was hard to capture the very-fine-shimmer on the nail but it sparkles in the real life! Also what is really great on this polish is, that, you can see clear brush strokes during the application but it vanishes in the end after it drys up. Rich pigments give nice finish in two coats, and also the brush helped well for good, smooth application (even it’s a bit too thick and round for me, though).

Overall, I LOVE this color. Looks good on my skin, too! Maybe this will be great choice for stamping but I’ve never tried for stamping art myself…this might be my next try.

あまり見かけないこと無いですか緑ポリって。あっても大抵ミント系淡いのとかラメ系とかあるいは暗い系とかくすみ系とかで、鮮やかな緑ー!どーん!というのは少ない気がします。鮮やかで、黄色みや青みが強過ぎなくて、白みが無くて、出来れば細かいシマーが入っているようなのが欲しいのだー!……と思っていたらついこの間まさに希望通りなのがCatriceの新しいコアラインに入りました。有り難うCatriceマジ愛しています。
非常に細かいシマーですがあくまでもシマーでありパールではないので緑を邪魔しません。これをワタシは求めていた。さらっとしているのにしっかり発色するフォーミュラはさすが。ブラシも新しくなったとかで結構使いやすかったです……が欲をいえばもうちょっと細い方が嬉しい(甘皮キワが非常に攻めにくい)。でもしつこいようですが2.5ユーロなんてプチプラに文句はいえません。
ぱきっと発色するので部分使いにもよさそう。スタンプとか。いろいろ楽しめそうな1本です。
