[China Glaze] Joy To The Waves

I just realised that it has been six days since my last post; I am back in Hamburg now, having really enjoyed the break in Lower Saxony. Yesterday I picked up the latest Chanel and Dior nail varnishes, and Spring Bud from Asia-exclusive Diorsnow was delivered today. I am currently wearing Washed Denim by Chanel … so the will be a few shades to show. 🙂

For now I present Joy To The Waves (before spring will be finally kicking in). Blue with fine green and golden shimmer; to me, it looks more summer than Christmas.

Artificial light (in my mother’s kitchen, haha). I note that it’s not really different from the daylight view.

[China Glaze] Teen Spirit

One of my favourite China Glazes; I’ve been wearing Teen Spirit quite a lot during the past weeks. Just love this blackened purple with blue and purple shimmer (due to small flakies).

Two coats shown below. So pretty – hence lots of pictures. Photos taken in my mother’s garden. 😉

[China Glaze] Tis The Sea-Sun

Pulling bright colours! Spring is here – we are expecting 16 degrees celsius tomorrow, so wow 😎 – and although Tis The Sea-Sun had initially been released for Christmas, it’s definitely a shade for warmer days too. The colour is coral with a hint of orange.

Two coats applied.

[Essence] Play With My Mint

Play With My Mint; this is a shade I had wanted to try for so long. Mint green is for sure a favourite colour. This came as a surprise with my Essence advent calendar, hence the cute snowflakes on the lid.

Play With My Mint

Application was two coats. Perfect mint green – and glossy on its own already (although I sealed the manicure with a top coat).

[OPI] Pamplona Purple

Pamplona Purple. The name says it: purple.

Pamplona Purple

Two coats shown below. Funny thing: Unscrewing the lid was kind of a nightmare. The bottle was already used (Ebay purchase), so I guess that some polish had glued the lid to the bottle neck. I finally managed to unscrew the bottle, but the pliers I had used left some dents on the lid … Nevertheless, the colour was worth the struggle!

[OPI] Barefoot In Barcelona

I’ve been at my mother’s place for a week now and enjoying it so much. Didn’t tell you that Hamburg has early Easter holidays – so we are taking some time off in Lower Saxony, starting our days with swimming. I swam two kilometres each day except Sunday and it’s so great.

Once I’m back in Hamburg, there will be new Chanels to show. I noticed that I have not posted a nude shade – and an OPI nail varnish – for a while, so here is Barefoot in Barcelona. It’s beige with a proportion of rosewood. Lovely!

Two coats shown below and another premiere for this year: The weather is getting better (i. e. warmer) and thus I am taking photos outside again. 😎

[China Glaze] Snow Way!

Snow Way. Like the name and the colour too. It’s basically white with a hint of grey and the shimmer shifts between copper and pink.

Two coats applied. I wonder how Snow Way might look in bright sunlight – thus something to try for the summer? 😎
