I am quite late for this weeks color for “Lacke in Farbe … und Bunt!” – violet – so without further ado:
“Heavy Metallilac” is a bright violet polish, and I am not sure if I should call it a metallic – like the name suggests – or a cream or a shimmer. 😀 I think it’s something in-between, it has the bright shine (and the tendency to visible brush strokes) of a metallic and the inner glow of a shimmer – but both subtle enough to make it in some light still look like a cream. The unusual bit about it, and what might be the reason why I am not 100% sure to call it a metallic, is that the glowing bits are not silver or gold or even copper, but more of a pink.
Application was a mixed affair – it was almost a one coater, and perfectly opaque after two coats, and dried quite fast. As you can see from the three digit number, it is a bit older, so I had high hopes that the brush would be ok. But no such luck, it was again a thick, bushy and badly cut mess. When did Catrice change their brushes, does anyone remember?
