International Polish

This is the second post that I have done and I have a feeling since I'm a recent resident of Switzerland for the time being there maybe a few more posts that are similar to this. Today I have two polishes that I have worn and then I have two pictures to tease you with for next time.

First up is a beautiful Magenta with gold shimmer. It's from a company called Manhattan and is based in Germany. I forgot how much I payed for this, but it was around $6-7. I'll have to check next time I'm at a display. It took almost two coats, but I still had bald patches so I added one more. The brush is pretty normal and the cap is unique and surprisingly easy to hold. It doesn't have a name, just a number 64L.
The next color I have is actually from Maybelline but is exclusive to Europe. I can best describe the color as a pewter, dark gray shimmer. I picked it out because it looked unique. I do not plan on buying anymore of the polishes from this collection as it bubbles, the brush stinks, and I hate round caps. The color is nice though. I looked on both the French and German Maybelline websites and I couldn't find this one there anywhere. All I know is that it's numbered 669. It took three coats to be opaque.

It does look really nice with a matte top coat....

Now for the two bottle pictures I have. I plan to wear these the next two days, so check back to see them switched.

This one is from Catrice it is called Pebble Beach. It's a light gray with a blue hint and as you can see from the sticker on the bottle it has a matte finish.

I am going to wear this one during the weekend. It is a lime shimmer that flashes red-orange. I can't wait to try it! It's called Green Green Baby and it is form alessandro.
