The new Limited Edition “NEONaturals” by Catrice invites you to use bright colors to cheer up the winter months!
This collection brings the trend colors of international designers to your nails: six neons and six nudes for endless combinations and looks.
You can use these individually or as a color duo for a beautiful halfmoon manicure which you can easily make with the new nailart brush that will include 30 tip guide stickers!
I’m loving these brights and I will probably buy On The Bright Side Of Life at least once but probably twice so I will have a back up for it once I run out. I also like the look of Little Miss Sunshine (which incidentally is also one of my favorite movies, next to Amelie and Fightclub) and may buy that one too. The nudes I will have to see in person to be able to judge if they’ll go with my pale yet pinkish skintone. I do like the look of several of them though.
NEONaturals by Catrice will be available halfway December 2012 until halfway January 2013 in the Netherlands and Belgium.
I’ve known about this collection for a few months now but was asked to not speak about these just yet as China Glaze was keeping these under wraps for just a little longer…, and boy was it hard to keep these to myself because man, aren’t they interesting? To me the larger glitters look like something a lot of polish lovers have been buying from the Indie Polish makers and now China Glaze is bringing this amazing look to the general public as well, I love it!
There are 12 colors in this collection as you can see in the collage I made of them up here, and these are their names:
I’ll be curious to see what the swatches of this collection will be like and what everyone’s favorites will be.
What are your thoughts of this little set? Is this a must have or a must pass for you?
For those interested in buying these, Transdesign has the collection up already!
Oh boy do I have a nice little scoop for you, look what OPI just revealed on their facebook page, Euro Centrale, their Spring/Summer 2013 Collection.
I found this picture earlier and I am really not sure how I feel about this set just yet… and honestly I’m wondering if this picture is real I mean 3 VERY similar browns (in this picture at least, which doesn’t seem to make much sense anyway as this collection is said to have 8 colors, I count 9 if you include the glitter which is pretty much Rainbow Connection from the Muppets collection that they released earlier this year… It’s true, look at THIS picture of that polish and the one up here… it’s the same picture! People are also saying that the other colors look like the ones from the Touring America collection… the plot thickens!), two fuchsias and what looks like a blackened purple, a grey and an orange and a glitter topcoat. It’s a bit… boring for a star who is known for her love of bling, you know what I mean? Mariah, I just expected so much more of you. You have studied cosmetology in case singing didn’t work for you and I thought you’d pick something a bit more unique for this collection… IF it is real that is…
That said, I do like browns and purples and fuchsias so I may just get a few of these… but I guess I’m underwhelmed by what I thought would be an amazing collection. So really, I do hope it’s fake!
In any case, her new collection will be out January 13th 2013 and later that year there will be a second collection, so hopefully she’ll redeem herself with that one, again… if this one is even real.
Edited to add: LOOK these are the REAL polishes and swatches, thank goodness, this is what I expected of her, not those in the picture up there! *RELIEF*
Many have read the books, myself included, and many have fallen for Christian Grey. Duri, the makers of Rejuvacote, my favorite nail hardener EVER, have noticed the world wide obsession with Christian Grey and his Ana and are releasing a 50 Shades of Grey themed collection called 12 shades of Desire.
I’ve emailed Duri for more information but so far I have nothing to share sadly than this one page advertisement, because I would have loved to show you more pictures of this collection!
As you can see there are 12 colors in this and I just LOVE the names for it!
- Bedroom Talk – Taupe
- You belong to me – Teal
- Behind Closed Doors – Purple
- Oh, My! – Coral
- Undisclosed Desires – Cherry Red
- Blinding Obsession – Warm orange
- Laters Baby! – Fuchsia
- Pure Vanilla – Baby Pink
- Kinky Pleasures – Blue
- Provocatively Innocent – Red tinted Purple
- Absolute Intimacy – Purple
- Indulge My Whim – A silvery glitter
I think Duri did everything they could to leave out any reference to the color grey but that’s okay because I am loving the colors they did pick for this and I think I’d proudly rock any of them.
The weather here has been slowly changing, the days have been getting shorter, fall will be here again soon and so will the new fall polish collections.
Orly is coming out with a set of 6 beautiful warm tinted high gloss polishes to set the tone for this fall:
- Rapture as you can see is a lovely brown with a hint of purple it looks like.
- Smolder is a yummy burgundy shimmer, burgundy is one of THE colors to wear this fall by the way!
- Ignite is a delicious cherry red créme.
- Flicker is a red shimmer with hits of copper, giving your nails the look of a glowing ember.
- Flare has a beautiful golden shimmer to it.
- And last but not least, Glow. Which is a color that seems the odd one out in this set but as you can see in the publicity picture where the model is wearing a top in this color and has Flicker over Smolder on her nails, it really matches well with the warmth of the other colors.
Looking at these samples on the left I have to say that I may need one or two of these, I have not decided yet.
To me the bottle shots look less appealing to me though for some reason, don’t you hate it when that happens? Though of course it will make my wallet quite happy if I decide to skip this for that reason.
This collection is an Limited Edition and is set to be released September 2012.
What do you think of these colors? Is there a must have color for you in this collection or will you skip this one?
It’s time for exciting contrasts! Catrice takes you to the unspoiled world of prairies with the urban flair of the modern age city. A chic lifestyle is connected to the longing for freedom and a search filled with adventure. This contrast is reflected in the colors of the Upper WILDside LE: Warm natural hues like brown, beige, warm red and orange are up against gutsy blue and green. Indian look vs. urban style: wild but chic!
The colors are from left to right:
- Red rocks!
- Hunting Heritage
- Wild West-side
- Urban Outrider
- Be Aztec
Of course there are other products in this collection but you know me, I’ll focus on the Upper WILDside by CATRICE – Ultimate Nail Lacquer
The exciting Upper WILDside colors – warm Orange, brown and red meet cool urban blue and green. They will dry to a matte finish with a surface that feels like suede. (*Edited to add that it seems that only the red and orange will be suedes. The press information wasn’t really clear on that sadly.)
As you can see, these polishes have a shimmer in them that will look amazing when worn as is, without topcoat. But when you put either a glossy or a matte topcoat on these polishes they’ll look even more amazing. And that’s why I’ll try to get my hands on all of these colors as soon as they are out come the end of September. They’ll only be in the shelves until the end of October so if you want these you should hurry!
I just found a picture of a cute new set by O.P.I. that turned out to be a set of mini’s they have released recently in the theme of the Day of the Dead!
The Day of the dead (Spanish: Día de los Muertos) is a Mexican holiday celebrated throughout Mexico and around the world in other cultures. The holiday focuses on gatherings of family and friends to pray for and remember friends and family members who have died. It is particularly celebrated in Mexico, where it is a national holiday, and all banks are closed. The celebration takes place on October 30th, in connection with the Catholic holidays of All Saints’ Day and All Souls’ Day (November 2). Traditions connected with the holiday include building private altars honoring the deceased using sugar skulls, marigolds, and the favorite foods and beverages of the departed and visiting graves with these as gifts. They also leave possessions of the deceased.
The usually beautifully decorated sugar skulls are the theme of this mini pack and I could not be more excited! I’ve always been fascinated by those.
Okay, on to the picture:
The So So Skullicious Mini Pack contains:
4 Limited Edition Halloween Nail Lacquer Minis (3.75 mL – 1/8 Fl. Oz.)+ 1 sheet of Colorful nail Decals.
The colors are:
- Hi Pumpkin! - This jack-o-lantern orange is sweet on you
- A-Rose from the Dead - This hot pink is the life of the party
- Mourning Glory - A black so shiny, it will lift your spirits
- Candlelight - Be all aglow in this flame yellow
I myself LOVE these and I’m usually not a big fan of mini’s. What are your thoughts about them?
*These colors are only available on the large display version in stores.

Another fabulous neons collection about to be launched is the OPI Outrageous Mini Collection.
OPI has made a video to tell you all about this little bright collection right here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hZvmbkRS9tk
And if you haven’t got a lot of time or a bad connection and can’t watch video yet are curious about the colors in this collection, here’s a pic and the names of all the colors:
- Ridiculously Yellow
- Formidably Orange
- Riotously Pink
- Seriously Purple
Besides these colors the set also consists of a special white basecoat and the opi topcoat. All bottles contain 3.75ml which is 1/8 fl oz.
If you have not seen a Mini polish compared to a full OPI bottle I’ve quickly taken a picture for you of a full sized bottle and a mini I got with one of the Halloween sets many years ago.
Now I have to admit, I love these, but I wish they’d just release full sizes of these so I could just get myself the purple. The other colors are fun, but I already have similar colors and I usually am not too crazy about mini polishes as with longer nails you only get 3 to 4 wears out of each color if you use them sparingly.
What do you think of this nifty little set? Will you be getting these or are you going to skip this?

I’m curious to see swatches of these as Neons usually have the strange habit of drying matte. These are rumored to be high gloss polishes with real staying power. Also in this product picture the Orange seems to have a metallic shimmer to it. Will these all have a shimmer and will they be slightly sheer or will these be nice opaque creams? I can’t wait to find out!
All the big brands seem to know it and are showing it in their new collections, brights are part of the hottest looks for this summer!
Orly isn’t one to stay behind and always stays on trend with their collections. So this Feel the Vibe Summer 2012 collection is filled with gorgeous neons and colors that match them and if used in a manicure along with the neons will make them pop even more.
Here’s a quick introduction to the colors and their names:
- Beach Cruiser – A neon fuchsia
- Skinny Dip – Electric light blue
- Dayglow – White with a pearly finish
- After Party – A navy blue with iridescent blue shimmer
- Melt Your Popsicle – A neon orange
- Glowstick – A neon yellow
