[Essence] You’re My Flavourite

Essence has launched a cute collection, actually it’s even kawaii (hence “Happy Kawaii”). The nail polishes come in little bottles, which remind of ice cream cones. Today I’m showing you You’re My Flavourite, mint green with shimmer.

[Essence] My Sweet Escape

I’m still at my mother’s house, not wearing any new colours for the time being. But there are some Chanel varnishes waiting at home. 🙂 As for this posting, I tried My Sweet Escape some weeks ago and it’s actually a thermo nail polish, changing its colour from beige to rose/peach. Hence it’s more a neutral shade.

I tried my best to capture both colours but the cold version (= beige) wouldn’t really show up. Two coats applied, artificial light.

Natural light. This is for sure the warm version.

[Essence] 1000 Light Years Away

Black teams up with holo glitter – that’s why I picked 1000 Light Years Away for last weekend, when I attended Fantasy Filmfest White Nights. I thought that this combo, which also reminds of a little galaxy on the nail, would suit fantastic and horror films. The glitter comes in various sizes.

Two coats applied. These photos were taken directly after I had applied top coat; in fact 1000 Light Years Away is a top coat eater …

Daylight. The polish stayed on my nails for three days, and I had no problems with either chipping or tip wear. (But don’t forget that I spent about twelve hours on Saturday and Sunday at the cinema, went straight to bed after coming home, and I caught up with my chores on Monday again.) Just opened crisp bags while watching the ten films, and stirred my hot chocolate. :mrgreen:

[Essence] Grey-t to be here

Happy New Year – although it’s been 2018 for almost one week. I just realised that this is the first post of this year. I’ve been back in Hamburg for a couple of days and already been a bit busy too … happily enjoying the rest of the weekend.

Grey nail varnishes are so special; I like this colour very much, also regarding clothing. Grey-t to be here comes with a pink shimmer. It’s really there even when it’s hard to see from the photos, argh! 😮

[Essence] Pour Some Glitter On Me

With Christmas approaching, I’m definitely in the mood for glitter and bling (apart from Christmas sweaters 😉 ). Pour Some Glitter On Me is packed with hexagon-shaped golden and silver glitter chunks, and it is even more special because it dries matte. That’s really something, isn’t it? 😉

I didn’t fish for the glitter and “poured” one coat on Chanel Fiction. You might notice the matte effect.

[Essence] Chrome Into My Life

Chrome Into My Life. According to Essence this comes with a “melted chrome” effect, so I thought it could be mirror-like (as the bottle design indicates). The colour is silver.

Actually, it’s silver with metallic finish. No mirror-shine though but still pretty. This is three coats because the formula is pretty sheer.
