[Dior] Lilas (#180)

I intended to show Lilas for a couple of days now but always something got in between, sunny wheather above all, and now I’m at my mother’s place again and also planning how to spend Japan Filmfest Hamburg, which is approaching. Flat rate ticket already secured. 😉 … Finally, here is Lilas. Pale lilac with shimmer.

[Dior] Blazing Bronze (#729)

Definitely a summer colour and perfect for sunny days: Blazing Bronze (which is more a brown bronze) is one of my favourite summer shades for this year. It’s packed with golden and bronze shimmer, which is already prominent in the bottle and also visible on the nails.

[Dior] Optic White (#002)

This is probably a totally summer colour – Optic White is (the name says it) white with shimmer, due to small glassflecks. You might remember that I love whites and this one is quite unique in my stash, because of its shimmer.

Dior does gorgeous whites! Remember Snow White and its high pigmentation? Optic White, too, is almost opaque with only one coat and definitely opaque with two, as shown below.

The shimmer, however, is not too present. I tried to take a macro shot but guess there is hardly anything to recognise …

[Chanel] Coralium (#562)

Coralium is my favourite shade of this year’s Chanel nail nail polishes for summer. It’s described as “milky coral” – but bright in a certain way.

Moreover, Coralium’s pigmentation is high, so it’s opaque after one coat, its formula reminding me of Resplendissant. These photos were taken under artificial light.

I will certainly be wearing Coralium a lot during this summer. 😎

[Chanel] Sargasso (#558)

Finally the first summer nail varnish. I’ve had Sargasso for a few weeks now but could not manage posting the photos earlier. This is such a beautiful shade, grey with green (or, as Chanel says, blue-green) shimmer. I have always been fond of Black Pearl, and Sargasso reminds me of this, although darker and without the pearl finish.

Shown below is two coats. It’s hard to notice the shimmer, which is more than subtle, once applied. Artificial light.
