REVIEW: CATRICE COSMETICS NAIL LACQUER IN 'THE MONKEY GETS FUNKY'
I used to love buying nail polish and changing my nail polish every week but then I started my final year and I could barely be bothered to brush my hair. This year I hope to get back into maintaining well-groomed and polished nails. I started off well but I didn't get down to reviewing the products I used. Anyways, the first one for this year is a nail lacquer by Catrice Cosmetics in the shade, The Monkey Gets Funky...
This was the first nail lacquer I tried by Catrice and I was rather impressed with the formula. The brush is wide and flat. It covers a large surface of your nail in a single application. The bottle is a standard design and packs a generous 10ml of product.
The Monkey Gets Funky is shade number 23 from the 'Ultimate Nail Lacquer' range. It is a warm toned deep brown with swirls of gold shimmer flowing through it. I applied two layers to obtain an opaque finish. I was quite surprised when it dried. I assumed that it would have a glossy finish due to the shimmer in the formula but it actually dried to a semi-matte finish. If you want to enhance the glossy finish I suggest using a good top coat to lock in the colour as well as provide a beautiful gloss look.
The actual product applied easily with special thanks being made to the brush design. There were no issues regarding a streaky application and an even colour was obtained. The best part has to be that it dries within seconds. It is one of the fastest drying nail lacquers I have ever tried and I can't wait to test out more Catrice Cosmetics products.
It has been 4 days since I first applied this product and I have not had any problems with chipping. If you would like to get a bit funky then pop into your nearest Dischem store and head on over to the Catrice counter. I actually tested out my friends nail lacquer but according to Dischem online this beauty retails for R34.95.
