Quite literally, yes! Over the past few days, temperatures have risen to about 33 °C. I Loved it but when it gets that warm, liquid intake matters so much. Moreover, we wnt to the swimming bath every day. It’s so mich fun there and never crowded. Before we left for Lower Saxony, I secured my pick from Chanel’s collection for autumn at Alsterhaus, but due to the heat, I’m still not in the mood for anything autumnal (indeed, I have been wearing neon colours on my nails and am sill) … so I have not tried anything yet (got some eye makeup stuff too and the solours look so amazing).
As for today’s nail colour, it’s I Need a Refresh-mint. Classic mint green with a tad of turquoise. I remember when I received this from my friend Judi of Middle Aged Beauty Queen blog, and since I am a huge fan of mint shades, this became a favourite instantly.
Shown below is two coats.
It’s not news that I like white on my nails. I just think it’s a classy and chic colour, also a bit extraordinary. I could not resist Sandy Toes & Salty Kisses when I first saw it at the drugstore – but did, in order to come back a couple of days later and after I found it sold out everywhere. Nevertheless, the brach I usually shop still had some leftovers of the collection – and I got it for free, because they had already removed everything from their database. So that was really sweet.
Sandy Toes & Salty Kisses is a true white with silver glitter, described as “sea salt finish” (i.e. gritty and matte).
Two coats turned out to be a bit patchy, so I needed three. What’s really disappointing, the glitter does not show once everything has dried. Not really showing through and hard to make out.
Next week the wheather is going to be brilliant, thus I will pull out my beloved China Glaze neons. It is probably supposed to be the last hot week for this summer. I know that you might be waiting for Dior Skyline, the only one of the autumn polishes I have not worn and shown yet, but I am currently more in the mood for bright and flashy colours …
I tried to capture the bright green of Spring Green again.🙂 Two coats of this.
Skyline Collection again; this is Minimal, best to describe as a nude peach with hints of beige and a bit on the pastel side. Not a colour I would usually wear, because of the peach.
Two coats shown below.
Warm Caramel brown. This is probably my favourite of this year’s Dior nail varnishes for autumn. Abstract matches my skintone perfectly, though the colour looks more neutral when I wear it.
Two coats shown below.
Obscure – dark brown, reminds me of dark chocolate. This is brand new, from the current collection for autumn (and clearly an autumn shade).
On the nails, Ocscure turned out to be darker than in the bottle. Two coats applied.
Wild About Pink. I’m not really wild about this shade (which is pink with a hint of coral), except for its being quite rare. I think this was only available at Sephora, as a limited edition for Valentine’s Day, and I have no idea in which countries it was released at all. (My bottle is from Hong Kong.)

In the garden …🙂
