Autism Awareness Paint it Blue and Drug Store find: Catrice Shopping Day At Bluemingdales

Catrice Shopping Day At Bluemingdales is a drop dead gorgeous indigo color:

I applied two coats of Shopping Day At Bluemingdales over Essence XXL Nail Thickener. It dries to a wonderful high shine and no Top Coat would be needed to add shine.

The application of Shopping Day At Bluemingdales is not the easiest. The polish is runny and this combined with the wide and sturdy brush can provide horrid nailpolish flood on the nail and cleaning up is a plain mess.

Final thoughts: I am in love with this color. I tried my share of adding glitter or Effect Top Coats on it but each time, I had to admit, I prefer Shopping Day At Bluemingdales on its own!!!

I bought Catrice Shopping Day At Bluemingdales with Manor.

I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!

    1. Hallo meine Süsse, I knew you would like this. The formula is not that bad if you are a practised polisher like you, just for those who might not be so used to it might experience a surprise ;-)!!! You need this, so it will go towards Sweden in our next swap ;-) - have a great day - Puss xxx

  3. Gorgeous blue! Hmm, our Manor doesn't carry Catrice, only Migros and Coop. I guess it depends on the size of the store...

    1. Thank you :-)!! I think they split that in distribution areas in Switzerland. But then the Manor in Basel got a serious revamp and is now a really great place to shop - like the cheaper version of Globus ;-)
