[China Glaze] Custom Kicks

This is a real summer colour: Custom Kicks combines bright teal with golden microshimmer. The latter, however, is barely visible on the nails. But the shade is generally awesome.

Two coats applied. However, hard times after removal, i. e. stains. But the colour is worth it.

[China Glaze] Flirty Tankini

I’m trying to get an overview regarding my China Glaze stash. Like this brand so much. So I recognised Flirty Tankini and that I hadn’t shown this yet. Here it comes, neon coral (with a hint of pink).

Artificial light and the normal finish, which is semi-matte.

Here it is with a layer of top coat, which doesn’t really make a difference in the photos, I guess.

[China Glaze] Fresh Prince-ss

Japan Filmfest Hamburg is approaching, only two days to go, and for the first time (mainly due to my general admission ticket), I’ll be joining the opening night with “Innocent Blood”. Really looking forward! 🙂

As for further preparation (actually just for fun), I have planned to finally visit Sakura manga shop tomorrow – let’s see what they have got. To be honest, it’s more my daughter who wanted to go there (I’m more of a film buff).

But let’s skip this and have a look at today’s nail varnish, which is Fresh Prince-ss. Baby pink, a bit like sakura maybe. 😉

Shown below is two coats. Flawless China Glaze quality as always.

[China Glaze] Good Tide-ings

Bright periwinkle blue. I also notice a hint of lilac in this, at least under artificial light.

Two coats shown below.

Natural light, under which Good Tide-ings might appear a bit dull but don’t get deceived, this is definitely on the brighter side.

Not long after Fantasy Filmfest Nights (they are touring this weekend again, in Munich, Frankfurt, Cologne, Stuttgart and Nuremberg) I was at Savoy cinema again because they were screening the cult Battle Royale (2000). And of course there they were again, some of my Fantasy Filmfest fellows, like a study group. 😉 I also reserved tickets for Tuesday next week, to watch Guardians of the Galaxy 2.0 with my daughter, although I’m not into Marvel superheroes and ignored the first part, but I adore raccoons and everything “bear” 🐻 , and there is Rocket raccoon in it.
