Catrice – Genius In The Bottle

Catrice is a German drugstore/high street brand which can only be found in a few European countries excluding Great Britain. However, some products are available online. I picked up this polish and a few others on a recent trip to Hamburg.


Genius In The Bottle is ANOTHER Chanel Peridot dupe! I believe that it is not an exact dupe but pretty close. It is somewhere between an olive green and gold with beautiful duochrome which can be seen in the bottle. Sadly this doesn’t translate to the nail :(

I used 3 coats of the polish but some people might be able to get away with 2. The formula was easy to work with. The brush is absolutely HUGE and also quite a strange angle! This may be good for some people as you can paint a nail in almost one stroke but I find it quite hard to control.

Even without the duochome seen in the bottle, this polish is gorgeous! It looks particularly brilliant in the sun.

If you can't get your hands on this polish, brands such as Topshop, OPI and Look Beauty make similar polishes.


Thank you for reading!
