In the real life, this looks like simple denim-color creme polish but it’s not; it contains very subtle fine blue shimmer. When you can recognize the shimmer, it looks pretty; but unfortunately, the shimmer is too subtle and not really visible. I had to take hundred of pics to find one shows this shimmer.

Also I might say application was hell. Hell. Formula was really gloppy and final layer went very thick; so even the surface was dried, inside was still soft for long time. Fortunately my top sealer rescued me from this frustration, but…I don’t know why this one have so naughty formula compare to the other Catrice sisters.

Because it looked unexpectedly boring for me, I decided to add a spice…and now I feel better. This is one good point for this color, combination with silver looks really cool. I may remember this point, otherwise I can be disappointed again…

青のキラキラが見えます……で……しょうか……orz
デニムっぽい色に青いシマーがほんのり輝く色、……なのですがシマーがほんのり過ぎて全く見えません。ぱっと見ただのデニム系クリームカラーにしか見えない。光源を強く当てても弱く当てても日光の下でも室内でも本当に見えないので諦めました。顔料が強過ぎるのかな。もう少しちらちらがはっきりすれば超カワイイ色なのにな。
ついでにこれ物ッッッ凄ーく塗り辛いです。凄ーく濃いクリーム+速乾=べったべたになる、で全然滑らかに広がらず、塗りながらずっと「何なんこれー!」を連発していました。しかもべーったり分厚ーくつくので乾かない。一応速乾なので表面は乾くけど中が柔らかいまま。油断してたら落ちてたゴミが埋まっ(略)
ただまあシール貼ったらそれなりに見られる感じになったのが救いでしょうか。銀色が凄くよく合います。なるほど。いい色ではあるので似たようなのを探してみようと思います(そして数がどんどん増えて行く<阿呆)
