Lilibet’s Jubilee is dedicated to the 60th anniversary of Queen Elizabeth’s accession to the throne. I’m posting this now because … well, it’s been among my drafts for quite a while, and New Year’s Eve kind of marks a jubilee too, and so on, whatever. Cheap excuse, I admit. 🙄 (My actual mani today is Untitled Black topped with The Living Daylights.) The varnish is a pale lilac spotting a metallic finish.
Wishing everyone a Happy New Year, hope to find you again on this blog. 🙂
Noir Mordoré aka Black Bronze is my favourite shade of the bronze/brown colour family. According to its name, it’s definitely on the darker side, but still presenting a visible proportion of bronze.
My favourite top coat for this season, imitating snowfalls. It’s packed with big white bits and smaller glitter particles in a transparent base. My daughter got Let It Snow for me, and so far, I’ve tried it over a couple of varnishes.
My first pick was Pillow Fight (Ciaté), a grey shade with a tad of lilac/mauve.
Here is Let It Snow combined with another Essence, Goofy Blue (Snow Jam Collection of last winter). Goofy Blue has a shimmer of its own and contains flakies, so at first I thought it might be too much topping it with Let it Snow … but in the end, this is my favourite combo.
Here it is over Essence Always On My Mint, a pastel mint shade with a slight shimmer. I liked this too, that’s probably the reason why I took so many photos!
This has been the signature shade of Essie’s Holiday Collection of last year, Leading Lady. It’s a berry red with a jelly base containing glitter particles of different sizes.
Two coats. Leading Lady actually reminds me of the varnish I’m wearing right now, China Glaze Ruby Pumps (although the latter is more red-based and has smaller glitter bits.)
I almost forgot. Wishing everyone a wonderful Christmas! 🙂
This is the cake we had yesterday, it’s cherries and cream I prepared. Yummy!
Just applied Ruby Pumps; my mani for Christmas Eve was Goldeneye topped with Essence Let It Snow (currently my favourite top coat).
For the holidays, I picked some vintage Diors I might swatch – so please stay tuned. 🙂 However, for the time being, here’s another Chanel. Pêche Nacrée is almost three years old. It’s a frosty light peach shade.
Already swatched this (you won’t believe it) in May 2012! 😯 Shown below might be two coats.
Briarwood might be one of those varnishes fitting this season perfectly. It’s one of those great holos by A England, a maroon/burgundy shade.
Two coats. December is usually a busy month, so much for the lack of posts …
