Sold Out Forever

Recently I decided that I don't devote much attention to the local polishes. Somehow because they are always there and always availiable, so I have less interest to them as for the rare or overseas brands - I neither own a lot  from the German assortiment. One exception is LEs: once a polish is a limited edition, I grab it immediately. If it's not - I keep thinking for months if I really need it or not. Unless they are discontinued or sold out forever. The hero of today's post is exactly that case: meet Catrice Sold Out Forever.

Sold Out Forever is a warm jade green creme with almost invisible nanoshimmer. Formula is fine - easy 2-coat application, whereas you might have problems with the 2d coat. My tip is: make 1st coat rather thin, and layer a thicker second one. So you will avoid the third. This shade of polish has a hitch: the colour varies depending on 1) your skin tone; and 2) the lighting. The less light it gets, the colder the shade looks. To show all the nuances I made photos in diverse light modes - firstly, direct and indirect sun:

Surprisingly, I liked this shade more than I expected, also because it didn't reveal the red undertone of my skin. Sadly, the name of the polish is the absolute truth: it's discontinued by Catrice (whyyyy?!) and in most cosmetic shops - sold out forever.

  1. It looks gorgeous on you! Catrice brang it back but it looks like they changed the formula - like super baby blue version. But the other day I was in the store, I saw this version so I have no idea if they bring back the old formula or we have an old batch. :S

    1. Thanks! :)
      Yes, I saw the "new" version - it has nothing to do with the old one. I hate when brands change colours, but leave the old name - so confusing.. ;-{

  2. They re-released it in a lighter tone...

    1. Yes, but it has nothing to do with "original" version, it's absolutely another shade with an old name..

  4. It's beautiful, all though I think it's paler IRL than on your photos.
    I was lucky enough to grab the last in each of two different stores in the end of April.

    1. Yes, it might be a bit paler, the real colour (indoors, no direct light) is something close to the 2d photo from below. The more light around, the brighter it becomes though. You were lucky to grab it, definitely! :)

  6. Подозрительно похож на IsaDora Vintage Mint.. Красиво на тебе смотрится, хотя я чего -то в стиле Грязных денег от названия ожидала :)

    1. Спасибо :) Похож, и правда.. Он вообще-то в бутылочке гораздо грязнее смотрится, я как-то тоже денежного цвета ожидала.. хотя такой он мне тоже нравится :)

  10. This is one of my all time favourites. It's a shame that Catrice decided not to let it live longer. Have you seen the new version of Sold Out Forever? What a horror! Pastel mint, but VERY on a white side. Not user friendly actually :o(

    1. Thanks! :) Greens are nice, especially light shades, pity you don't like them, I think they would look pretty on your nails.

  14. Actually it's strange for this polish, that at least I think they have THREE versions;

    1. One which was discontinued on last renewal (end of March, I bet?)
    2. One which came back on core line with same name, but different shade (more whiter ver), and which is NOT available now (I remember it was available around March-April)
    3. One which came back again on core line with same name and almost same shade as first one (I mean much greener than second one), which is available NOW

    ...I don't understand what catrice is doing, and I'm a bit confused because they didn't announce anything about them. At least I have first version (without "new brush" sticker) that I could get just before first discontinuing, and I'm now wondering if third one is same shade as this or not. But having exactly same shade doesn't make sense for me...I'm still thinking if I'll do the comparison or not.

    1. Really? I think I missed the 2d version of what you mentioned... so confusing! The last version is different for sure, and I like the original one much more. It would be great if you compare them actually because I'm sure many people are wondering.

    2. I had a chance to talk with people in shop and realized that "3rd" one was sadly their dead stock! Because I saw A LOT on one moment (they had shelf full of good green ver), I misunderstood they came back to the original color :( New one is still that sad white shit :(
      Sorry that I messed up your post, but final conclusion is there's just TWO vers, good old one and boring new one... :(((((

  15. Do you own any Milani nail polish (an American drugstore brand)?? This polish looks like it could be similar to Milani's Dress Maker, which is similar to Chanel's Jade. Then again Dress Maker and Jade might be brighter now that I'm looking up swatches...
