[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.

[Chanel] Distraction (#549)

I remember that I, for sure, applied Distraction after its release in 2012 – but as I didn’t find any entry in this little web space, nor draft, I must have forgotten to take photos. However, Distraction is a beautiful coral shade with pink shimmer, which I am finally presenting.

Application was two coats. Daylight and cinnamon ice cream. :mrgreen:

[Chanel] Rose Prodigious (#586)

I just realised that the last post seems ages ago and that I still owe you, especially berrymilktea, photos of Rose Prodigious. This is berry with copper shimmer.

Two coats applied. Artificial light (the shimmer does not really show). Overall, this is very pretty, feminine and elegant.

I took this photo spontaneously when I was on the way to the metro. The sun came out for a short while, so I seized the opportunity.

Alchimie again

I’m bothering you with another “reloaded” mani. :mrgreen: But Alchimie can tell a story. When I first tried (and posted) this, I didn’t like it so much. Pretty but … it didn’t make it on my nails again until shortly.

A couple of years ago, my second husband went to Copenhagen, and that’s how I got a miniature Little Mermaid, which he had picked very carefully, because he wanted to pick a mermaid with the most beautiful hair. 😉 I kept her on my desk, then with my selection of nail varnishes I was planning to apply … and dropped her accidentally sometime in March. The head broke off. 😦 I was devastated but managed to glue the head back on. She looked good again, however, the crack was still visible – and that’s when Alchimie came into play. Nail varnishes are varnishes, aren’t they? 😉 This is the result:

Still a visible line, but Alchimie is indeed almost the same shade as the Little Mermaid.

Of course, I applied Alchimie on my nails too. 😉 It’s one of my favourite colours now.

[Chanel] Paparazzi (#579)

I tried to find Paparazzi in this blog, then realised that I had worn but obviously not been taking photos of it … thus I applied it again. The colour is brown with a hint of plum and copper shimmer.

Two coats shown below. I didn’t like it when I first tried it shortly after its release (hence summer 2013) but don’t remember why. Maybe the usual skinton/nail colour clash. Nevertheless, when I wore Paparazzi again a couple of weeks ago, I thought it looked really classy on my nails. Even under artificial light. 😉

So, I’m sorry for not having shown it before. But even if I had – Photobucket is still keeping my stuff on hold, and I am very slow regarding migrating to flickr. I usually try to update all posts (i. e. uploading photos again) I notice you were clicking on, so at least you’ll have those.

And for something else: Tomorrow we’ll be going to a pool party, which is taking place at the local swimming bath (it’s a small, but this place has only a population of 32,000). You remember that I love swimming and I go there regularly. There will be a professional setup, involving many games and so, of course, it’s especially for children, so I guess my daughter will have loads of fun. And me too. People are so incredibly nice over there, guests as well as staff. I have kind of a swimming buddy – not a real buddy, just an old man I can share a lane with when it gets too muddled up in the pool. So we never speak – but don’t get in each other’s way, and he is a bit faster than me, but I seem to have gotten better, haha. 😉 But what I was actually about to say: At first, I thought he was in his mid-50s, until I could take a look at his face without his goggles – I would have guessed: 70 and above. But swims so so fast! Today I had another peek, and believe me or not: He must be way older than 80! I was just thinking: OMG! 😯 I wish I was that fit. Amazing.

(Also loved that tousle-haired granny today, who was a slow swimmer but still decided to move to the fast track – which I only use when there is no other lap. She looked to happy and smiled a lot! 🙂 )

[Chanel] Magnetic

Magnetic, the neon pink shade, is the only colour of the Chanel Neon Wave varnishes I have not yet shown. So here it comes.

Unfortunately, I have only photos under artificial light but will wear this again soon. It’s bright and flashy, truly textmarker pink. Three thin coats over white.

This is the only outside photo I have – but with a water I got from Chanel after being at their Alsterhaus counter. 😎 😉
