Catrice Nude sensation LE - Attempt at Mannequin hands

 Not so long ago, the European brand named Catrice launched it's new Limited Edition Nude sensations. As I was looking for a polish similar to Essence Iced Chai Latte I stumbled across this one because it seemed similar to it. Though the shimmer is more evident in Iced Chai Latte, it is still present in Nude Beige, which is also a bit lighter shaded. While Iced Chai Latte required only 1 coat, I had to do 3 coats of Nude Beige 1 coat of Nailtek f.2 to get full coverage, at least it dried pretty quickly:)

SO here it is and I wanted to create the mannequin hands with it, decide for yourself whether I've succeeded;)

What do you think of the colour? What are your experiences with nude polishes?

Thank you, dear readers and followers, have a nice and polished day:*

  1. It looks great :) I'm really starting to like nude polishes and bought them few this week.

    When they are going to start selling Catrice in Slovenia?! *grrr*

  2. Uu zelo zelo lepo. Iced chai latte mi je tudi zelo vsec :). Tudi mene zanima kdaj bo Catrice prisla v Slo.

  3. Biba, thank you:* I really hope they will sell them soon, as I don't go to Austria that often:)

    Tamara, hvala:* tudi mene:)

  4. ooh, that is a nice one, I am really into the nude shades at the moment.

  5. Pretty! I love Iced Chai Latte, but this looks a bit more natural. I think I'm going to have to look out for this one...

  6. I think you found your nude color and it looks good. Now you just need a lace konadicure. =)

  7. I like it on you!
    I posted the whole collection yesterday and this was the only one I liked. The coral is just ugly and the other to are way to sheer.

  8. BabyD, me too:) thank you:*

    Sanna, I like iced chai latte more than this one, too:) Thanks:*

    nihrida, thank you:* I've already made a konadicure over it, haha;)

    Kirsten, thank you:* I agree, this was was the most appealing to me too:)

  9. Looks pretty good to me! :D I love that colour on you!

  10. Your mani is pretty, this polish suits you well, but I don't know if I'd wear that kind of color. I'm not a hudge fan of those nude colors and I prefer Iced Chai Latte because is has "a special something" that nude colors don't have ^^

  11. Mmmm, I have a similar colour but I never used it because it was nearly identical to my skin tone, but I hadn't heard about this mannequin hands trend, I might give it a try ;-)

  12. This looks great! perfect mannie hands

  13. I think this is perfect mannequin hands!
    I'm really picky about nudes and I just can't seem to leave well enough alone. I usually end up layering glitter or adding nail art.

  14. Perfect mannequin hands! :) I think you're exactly right about the comparison to Iced Chai Latte, as I thought ICL was just a half-shade too dark for me, and it looks like we have similar skin tones. This looks great on you!

  15. I think this is your nude shade, a perfect match.
    I cannot wear the mannequin hands look or nudes/sheers at all, maybe it's the excess length of my nails but it just looks strange and creepy and in a good strange creeepy way but in that weird alien razor nail sort of way.

  16. I think it polish is almost perfect for manequin hands. I don´t own nude colour cuz they are boring on me (with one exception OPI Barefoot in Barcelona). I ´d love to see it with konadicure.

  17. You've definitely succeeded , it looks beautiful :-)))

  18. Prelep nude lakec. Spominja me na iced chai latte. Bilo bi zanimivo videt primerjavo =)
    Absolutno ga pokonadiraj ;)

  19. It looks really nice!! I really wanted the Essence one but the brands isn't available here =[

  20. Wau, nice nude shade. Like it.

  21. Musicalhouses, thank you:*

    Ayuu, I'm also more of a bold colour fan, but I just had to try it:) thanks:*

    gildedangel, thank you:*

    Lisa, I'm sorry, there was none left:( Thank you:*

    Andreja, thanks:*

  22. Such a pretty nude nail polish!
    I don't know where to find Catrice in my area and by now this LE is surely sold out. My local drugstores don't carry this brand. :(

  23. I know what you mean, I have to got to Austria to get some:( hope they'll be available soon in my country!

    You're from Germany, try in Müller??



Please leave a message, I'm always glad and happy reading them:) Thanks!
