[Essence] Holo Me Crazy

The bottle photo was taken when my mother was still among us, it’s the balcony of her former room at the nursing home. We had just come back from town and bought Holo Me Crazy. Silver purple with holographic glitter.

Two coats shown below. The surface dries a bit gritty, so I applied to layers of top coat.

It’s probably hard to recognise but I took the following photos outside and after my swimming routine, so it’s Alsterschwimmhalle background.

[Dior] Sparkle (#347)

This is for sure going to be a super quick post because I’m nearly on my way to Fantasy Filmfest Nights. Its about Sparkle, the second nail varnish from Diorsnow 2019. Again we have the frost finish but this time with a peach – and slightly pink – base.


It’s ok on my nails but not my kind of shade. Shown below is two coats.

[Dior] Twinkle (#574)

Twinkle is the pink frost from this year’s Diorsnow collection, actually available exclusively in Asia – or via the Dior webshop, where I got mine bottle from.


Since it’s pink with a hint of cherry I hoped that it would look good with my skintone – and it does. Two coats shown below.

[Essence] Legally Pink

Presenting the second shade I bought from the new nail varnish range with its re-vamped bottles. Legally Pink is, as you’ll see from the photos, more coral pink than true pink. It’s bright and beautiful.

Application was two coats. Perfect coverage and I have the feeling these new colours last for ages without tip wear. After three days, my nails don’t look any different, no chipping either.

[Dior] Diorcelestial (#891)

Well, another purple! 😉 Yesterday at Alsterhaus department store they stated that I seem to be into berry shades, so they’re probably right and that explains the many pinks and berries here … Today I’m presenting Diorcelestial, which is one of my latest additions. It’s got a purple base filled with glassflecks in pink, blue and silver.


And yes, the sparkles are visible on the nail. Two coats shown below. I like this colour so much that I got the matching lipstick. 🙂

[Zoya] Kristen

Following all these last shades from the pink or purple colour range, here is Kristen. This is from 2011 and I still remember well when I received the package from my friend Judi. Kristen is dove grey with a visible blue undertone. So pretty.


Two coats applied.






[Dior] Be Dior (#976)

The latest Dior nail colours are in – I got the Diorsnow and Addict Stellar Shine collections, which I had ordered on-line, a couple of days ago.  Here is Be Dior (#976, not to be confused with #892, which is a purple shimmer): berry red with shimmer.

Two coats shown below. I’ve been having this one on my nails for the third day now and it still looks good, with minimal chipping. The shimmer is very subtle and overall it’s an elegant shade. Sorry that I don’t have any daylight pictures, it’s been too cloudy outside.
