Catherine Arley 671

Good Morning guys! Today I have for you guys the first of my Catherine Arley polishes! I first heard about these on MUA about 4 months ago and flip flopped on ordering them...I finally did in January and just received them in the mail about a week ago. Normally I would be really unhappy about that kind of lag in something getting to me but these are SO worth it! For what it's worth I've heard the delivery time for people not in the US has been much faster!  I picked up almost all the holos that there were from Catherine Arley, I think there are 20. I ended up with 16...what can I say...I hoard holos, it's a sickness.

671 was the first of my many new pretties that I decided to wear, no real reason for why I picked first other than literally putting them in a pile, closing my eyes and grabbing one. 671 is a very light kind of silvery holo. Not the holo-est of them all but who cares...still pretty. I'll take any kind of holo I can get. This one also has an interesting purplish blue flash to it, you can see it best in the first picture. The formula was a bit sheer, I used 2 coats for the photos below but 3 probably would have been better! Also, I'm not a fan of the weird brushes in these...when I put this one on I thought maybe I just got a wonky one but now after wearing a couple more I've noticed they are all weird. They kind of get all flayed out and crazy at the ends. Makes it a little hard to polish but it wouldn't stop me from buying these again.

Catherine Arley polish can be purchased here just be warned that it takes for freakin ever to get to you if you live in the US.

  3. @Cris at Let them have Polish!

    Definitely work appropriate. Couldn't really see the holo inside so it just looked like a shiny wash of color!

    the ones I ordered are all 671-677 and 800-806. You can probably email the website that sells them and ask too, they were very helpful and quick to reply to my emails.

    I don't remember exactly how much it worked out to per bottle (it's been 3 months since I ordered) but I *think* around $3 a bottle

  22. Hey!

    I have a question, what form of payment did you use on this website? Cause I have some trouble figuring out how to pay for my order haha :)

  23. @Sophie

    they sent me a Paypal Invoice...it took literally a month to get that though. I had to email them several times about it!

    ReplyDelete
  24. I love it, even if it's not the holo-est of the bunch. I ended up buying 14 of them :-)

  25. Thank you for the heads up on the delivery times! I'm planning on ordering a bunch of the holos from them and I would have been worried sick if I didn't know it normally took that long for them to ship to the US.

    Do you remember when you chose your form of payment if you chose cash on delivery or the other option? Cuz I can't figure it out! Why couldn't they just write PayPal! lol

    ReplyDelete
  27. @ItsSpook

    I chose the one says "MODULE_PAYMENT_EPAYBG_TEXT_TITLE"

  28. @Jen

    I did that and it took me to a website in Bulgarian. How did you get them to send you a Paypal invoice?

    ReplyDelete
  29. @ItsSpook

    I don't remember having to do anything...they just sent it eventually 9took forever). Maybe you should email them your order and ask for a paypal invoice. They were really good about emailing back when was asking why it was taking forever to get my invoice
