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.

It snowed today although the sky cleared up soon, so that the snow melted quickly. But I had this pretty winter nail varnish on my nails; Hot Cocoa & Fuzzy Socks is a deep plum shade.
Two coats applied.
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! 😮
Two coats shown below.
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.
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.
This is a super old swatch – I thought I had posted this ages ago but obviously I haven’t. It’s “Fetifest” currently, a totally sick stuff film festival, which is kind of co-hosted by Japan-Filmfest Hamburg and lasts for two days at Studio-Kino. Also, there is a Sion Sono special at B-Movie cinema … so lots of films to watch for me for the rest of this month.
As for You Blong to Me, this is a classic mint green with a small proportion of turquoise (or even blue).
Two coats applied.
Close-up. (Why did I do that? It’s crème finish, but anyway.)
Here’s an older Essence. I picked Icebreaker about three years ago because of its fascinating, slightly iridescent shimmer. The base is blue and the shimmer is magenta.
Sadly the formula is very sheer. Shown below is three coats and there is still a visible nail line. But the shimmer is amazing.
