[A England] Lancelot

Lancelot was perfect for the final day of Fantasy Filmfest. Amazing blackened cherry red, which I could not wait to try.


Two coats shown below. It’s hard to see that this is actually a very, very deep red. But it is, although the proportion of black is really high.

Matte Is Murder

Last matte nail colour I am showing for the time being – you have my word. 😉 I’ve posted Matte is Murder before, back in 2011, and wore it again during Fantasy Filmfest. Because black and horror movies are a good match, and matte black with glitter is even better. Two coats applied, no top coat.

[Dior] Jungle Matte (#614)

I’m back from Fantasy Filmfest (although I was in Hamburg all the time, of course, but spending time at the movies for almost 12 hours a day is somewhat different …) and, being super crazy about this horror and independent stuff, saw all of the 54 films. 😉

Right now I am wearing Jungle Matte on my nails, which is a brand new Dior. So they ae doing mattes now and kind of re-invented this finish with a formula that is super easy to apply and dries quickly. No gritty surface – just pure matte. Jungle Matte is a nude beige (or light brown) colour.

[Chanel] New Dawn (#578)

I’m almost off to Fantasy Filmfest (while it’s raining heavily …) – officially Day One -, so this is going to be a short post, but I didn’t want to make you wait for ages for the next blog entry. So today it is all about New Dawn, which is dusty mauve, probably with a slight hint of beige. Exceptionally unique.

[Chanel] Horizon Line (#576)

It’s Fantasy Filmfest soon – Thursday, to be precise -, meaning that I will be at the cinema for five to six films a day, until the 17th of September. As every year, I am really looking forward to those (I guess tgey are) 54 movies! So it’s going to be a bit silent in the blog, as I won’t have much time to change my nail colour and will probably wear shades I have tried before. I will pick up four new colours at Dior tomorrow, and there’s also Sophisticated from Dior, which I could not find in Europe and thus got from Singapore, and finally, I purchased Horizon Line and New Dawn, the latest Chanel nail varnishes for autumn, both very pretty.

I wore Horizon Line today, and it’s a seafom-infused 😉 grey shade.
