Catrice: C(h)rome, Leon! Swatch & Review ★★★/5

Allo polish Pals!
How are you today? I hope your week has had a good start? Just a quick post from me today, I'm really sick at the moment. Somehow I seem to have picked up food poisoning – I'm totally exhausted and a little bit 'out of it'. So if any point I make less sense than usual that will explain it. Today I have Catrice's 'c(h)rome, Leon!' from the previous Chameleon collection.


The colour shift is very slight.
Colour ~ 'C(h)rome, Leon!' is a sweet light peach duochrome that looks slightly green in certain lights. I wouldn't say the colour shift is the most apparent of a duochrome but it is there. It is quite a delicate looking shade. It is also quite on the sheer side so it took me two coats to get full coverage.

Application ~ I have no trouble with application however you may end up with the odd few brush stroke due to its metallic look. I had no trouble with bubbles and the dry time is so-so.

Texture ~ This polish is very much on the watery side and dries to a beautiful metallic finish.

★★★/5 There's nothing really wrong with this polish, so perhaps its just me. I love the summery peach glow to this polish but I am not sure about how I feel about the green tint at times. If your a huge fan of duochromes I wouldn't urge you to go out and grab this. You can certainly get more 'full on' duochromes for your money.

What do you think of this peachy duochrome? Did you pick up any of the Chameleon polishes?

Have a great night,
I'm going to rest up well so I can get back to some fun nail art!
Love
Ithi

  5. I love the color but I don't like as much the finish of it and that the duo-chrome effect is not that visible. But is sure looks nice on your nails! I wish all the best for you, take care and get well soon!

  8. This color suits you wonderfully! It is delicate but bright and the color shift is also pretty.

    1. Thank you so much, Stadtwaldvogel! I'm still sort of unsure about how I feel when I wear this polish but I do think it can be quite flattering! xx

  9. Have you tried layering it over a dark base? I always feel the need to use a dark underwear for whatever looks duochrome! I think a black or dark purple would really make it pop, and maybe you'd love it more that way! Give it a second chance :)
