[Essence] Guardians of the Unicorn

Here’s an iridescent shade, shifting between lilac and blue, Guardians of the Unicorn (nice name too).

Application was two coats. I took these photos right after swimming, so my cuticles might look a bit dry.

[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:
