Golden King of Greens

Hello there! :) 
Today I got 2 pretty polishes for you! Another Catrice and a Essence one, that I'm sure everybody knows already. I'm talking about Catrice - King of Greens and Essence - Make it Golden. First I swatched King of Greens and the name is absolutely perfect for this polish! But see for yourself: 
This is 2 coats without TC. Such a beauty with yellow and green shimmer. No wonder it's the king of greens :P Application was a bit tricky, because it tends to leave bald spots, but if you are careful, you can do it!  
And finally the sun comes out a bit more often - yay for sunlight pictures! :D
And I promised you guys to show you a comparison of the old and new brushes, that Catrice came up with this spring.
The first thing you may notice is that the new brush is rounded instead of flat at the tip. It's also a bit wider than the old one. I personally like the new brush waaaay better than the old one ... why? Because it's much easier to do a clean line at the cuticles with the rounded brush and I sometimes need only 2 strokes to cover the whole nail, because the brush is wider. 
What do you guys think of the new brush ? Like it or hate it?

My next step was adding Essence Make it Golden. I didn't want to layer it over the whole nail, so I did a little gradient and for the accent nails I then covered the whole nail with 2 coats of Make it Golden.
Like it? I love it ! I think the green and the gold go very well together :)

I also have a little bonus pic for you!
Kiara was sleeping next to me while I was taking the pictures ... I love that little fist she makes :D

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful and sunny day! :-*
