I am waiting for the Christmas collections to be released and trying some of my vintage nail colours in the meantime. This is Golden Raspberry (or Rose d’Or), a raspberry red with golden shimmer. As often with older polishes, I do not now how this might be, but the formula is still smooth.
Two coats applied. There is indeed a fine golden shimmer on the nails.
You might remember that I am not a huge fan of golden nail colours (I actually haven’t heard of anyone who is), but Chaîne Or is somewhat different, and I really liked wearing it – and will probably apply it again. It is more a yellow gold, shimmer finish too. When I went swimming, it really sparkled in the water and sunlight, and I have to admit: I like this.
Two coats applied.
Something bright. Rain Dance the Night Away is a classic turquoise crème. My kind of colour. The bottle pic shows the mini version.
Shown below is two coats.
Première, a slightly muted plum shade. I actually wanted to show this yesterday, but had some issues with uploading photos … so here it is now.
Two coats applied. Photos were a bit tricky to take because there wasn’t so much light in the flat, but it wasn’t really better outside, because of grey clouds. I tried my best and when the sun finally came out, I grabbed Première again from my stash (which is in a built-in cupboard) like a maniac; so much for the last photo.😉 However, in the first picture, the colour comes close to how it actually looks like.
Direct sunlight, yay!😎
This is from the current Midnight Masquerade collection and reminds me of Chanel Ombre Essentielle “Swing” eyeshadow, only as nail varnish. They are a perfect match. Meet Me Midnight is a blue glitter polish; the small glitter being so dense that I’m not sure whether it has a blackened base … It’s also a bit iridescent, shifting from medium blue to dark blue, sometimes with a hint of purple.
Two coats shown below. I had slight issues with the stubborn brush, maybe because I have not applied Essence nail colours for quite a while and because of the bristles being cut straight at the tip. But then I got the trick and the second coat was flawless.
Here’s Gris Obscur, my latest Chanel nail varnish. Although it is called Gris, it is more a blackened dark grey (if not black) with silver microshimmer – but still unique.
Application was two coats. On the nails, the shimmer does not really show, it’s very, very subtle.

This is so beautiful! No idea why, but I’m getting many compliments for Don’t Desert Me. It’s probably because of the grey sky and temperatures getting colder – this fuchsia, shimmer finish too, brightens the day.
And because of the weather mentioned above I could not manage capturing the shimmer of Don’t Desert me. Maybe the macro shot at the end might give you an idea.
