[Chanel] Profondeur (#638)

From Thursday onwards, for the next ten days, I’ll be at Fantasy Filmfest as I am every year. It’s my favourite filmfest and hence season. Until then, I hope to show some more colours and start with Profondeur of Chanel’s current collection for autumn. This has a matte (“velvet”) finish and even comes with a matte bottle. The colour is dark red.


Two coats shown below. No top coat of course. The velvet finish looks so classy, as does the colour.

Reloaded: The Spy Who Loved Me

Fantasy Filmfest starts next Thursday, hence I’m sorting out nail colours for my personal event of the year. I’m still loving the James Bond collection by OPI, which was released for Christmas 2012. Here are more recent photos of The Spy Who Loved Me (initial posting here).

The colour is tomato red with glassflecks.

[Dior] Rouge en Diable (#851)

Nothing beats a stunning red! Here is my favourite of the Dior nail varnishes for fall 2018, Rouge en Diable. It’s not just oxblood with a hint of maroon – it’s so special. I am still thinking of similar colours and will check my stash again during daytime. Red Ebony probably, or Chanel Koala? Your suggestions are welcome.

Property management had set up a huge scaffolding before our front windows, making it hard to take good photos. But here’s one with Pandi the panda. 🐻 (Two coats of Rouge en Diable.)

I also took some photos outside – on my way to the subway …

… and after swimming. No tipwear on day 2.

[Dior] Trigger (#703)

In my view, Trigger is the most captivating shade of this year’s Dior nail varnishes for autumn. It’s a combination of grey, mauve and lilac, so hard to describe. Not to forget the magenta and silver microglitter particles.


Two coats applied, artificial light.

Natural light or at least outside. I regret that the sun didn’t come out. Nevertheless, some more photos.
