Blueberry Holo

You guys, the sun is shining! Wow. I have already embraced autumn in my head, but it seems like we get one more t-shirt and shorts kinda day.

This also means I’m busting out a holo I haven’t tried yet.

Catrice Dirty Berry spent an eternity on my wishlist until I finally got it in June. And yet it managed to spend the summer in my untrieds pile. Weird.

And of course, when I put it on… it was so pretty (plus it has a lovely formula). A blue-toned purple that at least to me seems the exact colour of blueberries (my breakfast berry of choice at the moment 😉 ) chock full of fine subtle holo shimmer.

To be honest, the holo effect is subtle. In a lower light, it’ll look like silver shimmer. But it somehow really works with the slightly muted base colour of the polish making just a charming combination overall. 🙂

This Old Duochrome Again

Peridot.

The polish that spawned a thousand dupes and is still inspiring them.

I already own one.

Catrice Genius in a Bottle is another. (Edit — I actually swatched the side-by-side and discovered that Genius in a Bottle, which is a confirmed Peridot dupe, is just a bit warmer… This also means that considering all the other Misslyn duochromes I own, I can actually do a green duochrome ombre now. 😀 😀 😛 )

It’s gorgeous though, isn’t it? The gold-bronze-green with a touch of turquoise around the edges duochrome. 🙂

June Haul

Ooooh! Finally a non-challenge post. 😀 So… here are the polishes I picked up in June (even despite my polish-buying slump 😛 ).

I have no idea when I’ll have the time to wear these though… my untrieds pile is nearing 50 by now. o_0
