I've been a fan of Catrice cosmetics for quite some time, I love that it is affordable and such good quality, plus they have an amazing selection of colours and cosmetics to choose from, so really, there's no reason not to like these little beauties.
I tend to change my nail polish quite often, at least once a week, and find it's a really easy way to update an outfit or make it a little bit more fabulous. I was absolutely drawn to this nail polish, especially being in the perfect coral colour, which you should know is really trendy for summer.

The nail polish has an amazing applicator and two swipes will suffice to cover the entire nail, the consistency is also not too thick which makes for an easy application. It is relatively pigmented but two coats are needed to get full colour pay-off. However, the deal breaker was the length of time it took for two thin applications to dry. After an hour and 1/2 of waiting, I felt it should've been enough time to dry properly, however, after I took a bath my nails were all messed up. It's imperative that a nail polish has a quick drying time for me, also if I need an emergency nail colour change, I want to know that I can do that in a jiffy.
So although I really do adore the colour and general application of this nail polish, it really let me down in terms of drying times, I do feel it a bit ridiculous having to wait for 2 hours or more for nail polish to dry.
For now I'll stick with 3 brands I can count on to dry within 15 - 20 minutes: OPI, Essie and Revlon.
