Fju – Alessandro is keeping me on my toes lately … they’re bringing out new limited editions faster than Essence these days.
I was still checking out Adore Me, when they suddenly launched Catch Me, Glitz&Glam, Crystal Punk and Thermotwist. How in the world am I going to buy everything on my WL if they keep popping one pretty limited edition after another.
Today I have 2 Alessandro Catch Me nail polish swatches I received for review. I plan to buy at least Enigmatic Poetry (duochrome ) from this LE if nothing else catches my eye, but I seem to be having bad luck with finding it.
There are no testers for Crystal Punk LE so I’m still patiently waiting for swatches to see which set is a must have and we’re not getting Thermotwist LE (and I didn’t manage to spot this LE in Austrian drugstores either) so that one is also on hold.
I guess it’s a good thing that current Essence/Catrice limited editions don’t look that hot to me so I can spend my budget on Alessandro stands.
Alessandro Red Treasure is one of those shades that wouldn’t be my first choice if I were judging only from promotional photographs, but looks like nice elegant red nail polish on the nails. I see slight duochrome in the bottle, but it does not translate onto the nails.
Application was easy, 2 coats + top coat.
I used this nail polish as a base for one of my “Christmas/Winter” manicures. I seriously need more stamping plates as I never have one I need … I finally decided for two images from the plates I don’t really like, but it was either that or repeat myself. I made stamping more subtle by covering majority of nails with Catrice Bloody Mary To Go nail polish.
Second one war nice surprise. Alessandro Sacred Silver is green based nail polish filled with lots of tiny glitter particle. Effect is finish that resembles sparkling molten metal.
Little bit of ordinary narrow nail art tape, one coat of Red Treasure and my second Christmas manicure was born.
I like both nail polishes but Sacred Silver is more special so that is the one I would recommend. And I can’t wait to finally stumble upon full Catch Me stand so I can inspect all the nail polishes and add few more to my collection.
Price: 5 EUR for 5ml.
