Catrice Doris' Darling & NYX Girls Enchanted Forest


Doris' Darling is one of five limited edition shades in the "Hollywood's Fabulous 40ties" collection from Catrice. The others are equally well named - Red Butler (deep raspberry), Marlene's Favourite (coral/pink), The Nude Scene (peachy nude) and Holly Rose Wood (rose pink).

Right, firstly, I have to get this off my chest - we all know how much of a big freak I am when it comes to polish names, and while the polishes are well named, the name of this collection wrecks my head.

Anyway, leaving that aside, this is Doris' Darling.

It looks quite cool toned there, but depending on your skin tone it can look like a really nice warm plum - similar to Sally Hansen "Plum Luck" from the Complete Salon Manicure line, or the discontinued "Plum Play With Me" from Catrice.

As usual with Catrice, the formula & application were excellent. I used two coats and both dried quickly. Here's a look at it outside:

It's a lovely glossy plum, but it was crying out for a bit o' bling (or a Najazzle as I like to call it) - I got the cutest polish in my swap with Jenna a while back, and I'd been dying to use it. This is NYX Girls - Enchanted Forest.

I used 2-3 coats of Enchanted Forest and transformed Doris' Darling into a blingy, ballsy, weirdly space-like mani that Calamity Jane TOTALLY could have rocked. Y'know, if she were into nail polish.

I am in the love. I want to wear it forever.

Look how she sparkles in the (bizarre) cold November sun!

I'm going to stare at it now while I go and watch all Doris' Calamity Jane songs on Youtube, it's been WAY too long since I warbled along to this one in particular:

Have a good one,


  1. they look amazing together!

  2. Love plum colours this time of year, must check out the Catrice collection, haven't seen it yet. And I love the addition of the green glitter!

  3. Thanks ladies - I haven't been wowed by Catrice lately but that plum is a lovely colour to have in your stash! x


Talk at me!
