Perfect Rosy Nails - Catrice Karl Says Tres Chic

Despite all the fuss around neon nail polishes I still find myself reaching for nude and rose shades.
I don't know what's been wrong with me lately but I guess I'm growing up...I've been reaching for rose, mauve and brownish shades also in lipsticks. Nonetheless I find this particular nail polish really flattering for pale skintones.
Karl Says Tres Chis is a new Spring 2014 addition to ever growing Catrice assortment. 
It's a light warm mauve-pink-rose shade that compliments all skintones. It's quite opaque and a bit thick so you can get away with 1 coat. However I applied 2 coats for extra shine without any top coat. 
Surprisingly enough, I didn't find any dupes in my nail polish collection although it looks pretty similar to Essence English Rose at first sight. 57 Karl Says Tres Chic is a lot lighter and more pinky-mauve.

They retail for 2,60€ in local Mueller.
I actually don't have any major complaints over Catrice nail polishes - I just wish they wouldn't redesign their brushes a lot wider than needed. Unfortunately Catrice is available only in EU countries but I can see them expanding in the (far) future over to UK and USA as her little sister Essence. In the mean time, keep this shade on top of your wishlist.
