[Chanel] Sailor (#749)

It’s been raining for the past three days (and it will continue for the weekend, at least until Saturday, according to the weather forecast), so I should show something bright again, which is Sailor. This is brand new for summer, and a pretty cherry red.

Application was my usual two coats. 😎

In spite of the cold and rainy weather, I still enjoy swimming outside, even though the water is just around 18.4 degrees Celsius – or less, like this morning. But since this results in almost empty pools (although there are always athlethes training, regardless of the temperature), I’ve got lots of space, and in the end it’s all about my passion for swimming!

[Dior] Pine Cone (#985)

Pine Cone is the sister polish of Camel and that’s why its release was limited to Asia last year. I purchased mine from the Dior online shop.

Photos were taken only on the second day of the mani (which I think was because of bad weather and no appropriate lighting in the house)  – so you’ll notice that the finish is already looking a bit dull.  Shown below is two coats, which might still give you an idea of the colour.

[A England] New Romantic

I have a bunch of colours I am planning to show you – but somehow my life is currently very busy, and I am happy that I can finally go swimming again.

New Romantic is a blue-ish purple with holographic finish.

Two coats applied. You’ll notice both the blue and purple combined in this colour.

[Dior] Go (#230)

Hello from Nienburg! I’m obviously distributing my time between Hamburg and Lower Saxony. Here is a shade which I will be wearing a lot during this summer, because it’s orange (with hidden sparkle) and looks so fresh: Go.

I started swimming again last week, and while the outdoor pool in Hamburg was horrifying – crowded pool, no proper lanes, had a nosebleed and was scared because of all the people, no distance either -, Saturday and Sunday at the local pool in Nienburg (not my usual swimming bath though, but that one will be open from Wednesday) was just great. Getting back into swimming wasn’t that hard and it feels good being back!

[Dior] Vibes (#712)

I’m not yet back in Hamburg (but will be from Wednesday – so much for further planning) and having a quiet and peaceful time in Lower Saxony. Although it’s raining today and temperatures have dropped again, being here feels just right. I even discovered local delivery services, since I won’t eat out for the time being, preferring staying home and safe.

With that said, I hope you are doing fine too. I am quite aware that self-isolation is not for everyone. I am used to it because I’m an introvert but if you are not, I hope you will be able making the most of the current situation.

Blue and green nail colours remind of the sea, don’t they? At least they carry good vibes – which is what Dior might have intended when releasing Vibes. This one combines blue and emerald green (unfortunately, none of the photos is really colour-accurate) with a slight silver shimmer.

Two coats shown below (under artificial lighting). I will be wearing this again and probably take better photos when outside in the sun.

[Dior] Evasion (#336)

The name matches the mood. :mrgreen: Unfortunately today’s the day and I will be off to Hamburg in a few hours, locking myself up in the flat! Hope the trains will run smoothly.

Note my reflection in the bottle cap. 😎 Evasion has an apricot base containing golden shimmer particles.

So much for the close-up, because the shimmer does not really transfer to the nail.

Application was two coats – I was surprised how good it matched with my skintone. So Evasion is actually a classy and chic colour.

[Dior] Boost (#542)

Our wonderful (and safe) stay in Nienburg will come to an end on Tuesday – I’m not looking forward to going back to Hamburg. Obviously there are too many people who’ve had enough of the lockdown; to me it was just quiet times because I don’t need people around me, or mass events or even shopping. And, apart from all that, what might happen next, regarding Coronavirus?

Of course my flat in Hamburg is cute and nice … but I’d rather stay here where everything reminds me of my family whom I miss so much.

I probably should present today’s nail colour, which is Boost, berry pink with a slight berry and silver shimmer. I had found it on the Dior website.

Two coats applied. The shimmer is barely visible.
