Ultra Violet (#687) again

It’s Ultra Violet – again, because I’ve learnt that ultra violet is the Pantone colour of the year, which brought me to remember this beautiful Dior nail polish. Wish the sky hadn’t been so cloudy when I was taking the photos.

Grenat Again (#745)

I’m enjoying the time at my mother’s. We (i.e. my daughter and me) go swimming every day, and yesterday we watched Star Trek VIII: First Contact on DVD. My mother has got the largest TV screen! 😉

I know I had posted Grenat before, but since it was my chosen nail colour for Christmas, here are some more, maybe even better, photos. Two coats applied.

Emerald (Dior, #809) again

I’m waiting for A England’s Tudoresque to arrive – and have more or less applied colours I had worn before, more or less. That’s why I have finally better photos of beautiful Emerald, one of my Christmas favourites this year.

Close-up. This is such an amazing colour, in my view. It even seems to contain a hint of teal.

Frimas (Dior, #318) again

Some of you long-time readers may probably remember Frimas, which was released for Holiday 2013 (but not in Europe, as far as I know). The one thing I remember is the bad photos I took because they lacked proper lighting, although I tried so hard. 😉 Last week, I applied Frimas again – so here is an update.

Two coats shown below. The colour is mauve with hints of rosewood – and a beautiful golden shimmer.

[Dior] Cruise (#676)

First of all, I have to apologise to quite a few of my readers (hello out there :), especially those who got in touch with me via e-mail. The caramelfrappe Google address has been “seized” by my daughter to register with Snapchat and whatever other social media stuff; we actually share it but she didn’t seem to tell me about messages and I didn’t check the inbox for quite some time.

So I’ll be catching up with this and am really, really sorry! Thank you for your sweet messages; some of you were asking why lots of photos are not visible any more, or with the Photobucket message. This is, in fact, because of Photobucket’s conditions, which were changed in the summer, not allowing third-party links for free. I am still moving my stuff to Flickr and it will take a while but I can assure you that all photos will be back one day. It’s just that there are so many.

Today I have Cruise, pink with golden glassflecks (and my blurred face in the lid :mrgreen: ); this posting is for Anna, who is, as I have happily learned, a huge Dior fan. Although this was released for Spring 2016, it took me a while to get hold of it because Alsterhaus didn’t received this particular colour. I ordered it in Italy more than one year later.

Cruise is a bit sheer. This is two coats – with visible nail line.
