A real stunner; I have not tried all of the “Rebel” collection colours so far but Purple Fiction is a favourite, that’s for sure. Purple with metallic shimmer; it got me instantly. Beautiful in the bottle and amazing on the nails, especially in direct light.
Two coats shown below. Artificial light.
Purple Fiction exposed to direct light – I wish the sun had come out.
December already and I just recognised that snow is back at WordPress! Let’s combine this with Winter, which I own since 2013 but have not applied before because I am not really into almost sheer shades, even when they contain golden and silver shimmer in a tinted white base. I don’t remember if Winter was meant to be a top coat? Nevertheless, here we go.
Three coats of Winter on its own.
Getting sparkly again.🙂 I thought this looks a bit like Christmas, because Holo At Ya Girl contains green, gold and turquoise glitter in a slightly tinted (purple-ish) base.
Two coats applied. The glitter is so dense that it builds up quickly.
This ia a beautiful shade by Essence from last year (Winter collection, as the bottle says), The Semi Matt. Pastel blue with grey undertones, definitely a subtle and pretty colour, with a semi-matte finish.
However, the finish is not really semi-matte; shown below is two coats with top coat, but even without the top coat, The Semi Matt (ignore its name though) presented a rather glossy finish. At least no suède one, as I had hoped for. Nevertheless, the colour is beautiful, as mentioned before.
Next China Glaze nail colour ready to be shown … Jagged Little Teal made it on my nails the same day it arrived (i.e. yesterday), since I immediately fell in love with this gorgeous teal.
Two coats applied.
This is an older draft, from October. The garden in the background looks different now.😉
Meet Me In the Mirage is a rose gold foil, also containing hints of bronze. Sparkly and pretty.
Shown below is two coats. I had wanted to apply this for so long; it is more a summer colour, and a bit of sunshine would have brought out its sparkles.
Plump Power. This is another shade my daughter gave me for my birthday; she had picked a dark plum.
Shown below is two coats. Plump Power really is that dark.🙂
Natural light, we even had a bit of sunshine.
