Catrice & Essence have recently revamped their product lines, and this is one of the new items that caught my eye.
Jumping on the liquid sand/sand style/textured polish bandwagon, Catrice have come up with a range of sand style polishes called "Crushed Crystals". They cost €3.69 each (for 10ml) which is quite expensive for Catrice but in general it's not dear for a nail polish when you consider the price of some of the other brands of textured polishes.
It's been so, so long since Catrice have had any interesting polish so I was excited to try this! It applied evenly in two coats, no topcoat... *whispers* no basecoat either, because I forgot.
The polish is a salmon pink with gold flecks. The texture is very, very fine - probably the finest "sand" polish I've tried. It's not bumpy or too rough.

Without flash, inside:
It's lovely, it lasted 4 days with no topcoat and only minor tipwear. I think I'll definitely use it a lot over the summer, despite it being a bit Disney Princess-ish.
If I used tan I imagine it would look fanastic with it!
