As for the weather, it’s not yet spring, and we had quite some stormy days with heavy rainfalls – I felt a bit like in Weathering With You (the wonderful anime), but in the cold. 🙄 Nevertheless, it’s finally weekend! I absolutely like my current job and changed my swimming routine to the later afternoon.
Now for today’s post; Smooth is one of the latest Dior nail varnishes – incredibly pretty, it’s a pink purple.
Two coats applied.
Realising that I haven’t added new colours to my A England stash for quite some time, I placed a small order and picked some varnishes of recent collections. So today I’m presenting If the Ravens Leave the Tower, which is a blue-ish petrol with a scattered holographic finish.
Happy to have new A England polishes again! Shown below is two coats.
I couldn’t decide which photos to pick, so here is a picture overload. These were taken with artificial lighting.
Hamburg was hit by heavy storms today – trains (and flights) were cancelled, and some underground and bus timetables are disrupted too. It has been raining all day. I’m glad that we went to Nienburg last weekend but hope that the graves will be fine (I might ask my friend or neighbours over there to check, once the weather clears up again). As for tomorrow, I expect the metro to be crowded … hope I’ll make it to my workplace safely and on time. It’s a wonderful job by the way, with great colleagues.
Here we have an almost-neutral rosewood, Daydream, the colour of which matches with everything.
Two coats shown below. Unfortunately, no daylight photos; I’ve already worn this twice but never managed to take photos during daytime (except for the bottle picture), because of my working hours. It will certainly get better when days become longer again.
It’s definitely been a while. Last week, I started my new job, which is again completely different from what I did before (i. e. working in a bookshop), since I’m a lecturer for maths now. Like, finally. 🙂 Moreover, I’m still doing the proofreading as a freelancer for the law school. Things have changed so fast; I’m still grieving and will always be, but I am glad that there is at least a bit of stability regarding work.
I also got the phone call from Alsterhaus for the latest Chanel nail colours, and here is Mirage – a beautiful muted mauve.
Two coats applied.
While waiting for the spring collections to arrive at Alsterhaus, here is City of Stars, which was a Christmas gift from my daughter, who knows too well that I can’t resist night sky colours. Hence City of Stars is a dense glitter, packed with blue, turquoise and green microglitter bits.
Two coats shown below.
New year, new postings – so far for the plans. I saved the glitter top coat of Dior’s Happy 2020 Christmas collection for New Year, so here it is. It’s a transparent pink base with lots of multicoloured glitter. At first glance, there are golden, turquoise, blue and pink glitter bits.
One coat of the (nameless) top coat over Chanel Pure Black.
This manicure was amazing, not only for the combination of colourful glitter over black but it lasted for three days without any chipping or tipwear. And I would still have it on my nails, wasn’t it for a change of colour matching tomorrow’s outfit. We’ll be going back to Hamburg then. Not really looking forward to it because I enjoyed the peaceful and quiet rural environment.
Hope you had a wonderful Christmas. I was just happy about having two days off work; it’s been really hard during Christmastime, in addition to the grief. Of course …
I might be catching up with all those amazing nail colours next year. Until then here’s Be Passionate, which was a birthday gift by my daughter. It’s a blue-ish green metallic, hence pretty for Christmas too.
Two coats applied.
One more day at the bookshop tomorrow and then we will be spending a week in Lower Saxony.
