It’s Mother’s Day today but I seriously did not have it in mind when picking Don’t Tell Mama last night. I rediscovered this blackened green, containing tons of teal shimmer, in my stash and was just in the mood for a darker colour.
Application was two coats.
Here is another nail varnish with a ‘positive’, forward-looking attitude (or kind of, at least), Today Was A Fairytale. As with many of my old drafts, this has been in my dashboard for ages. Today Was A Fairytale consists of silver glitter in a transparent base.
I combined it with Pixie Dust but guess that it will look great too when worn solo.
One of those gorgeous reds. I was given this by my friend Judi, who knows exactly which shades I love. My Old Flame is a killer red. So pretty.
This is two coats. On the nails, it’s as beautiful as in the bottle. Classic red colours are timeless, and my experience with Deborah Lippmann varnishes is that they are really long-lasting.
Haven’t done a Deborah Lippmann posting for ages, although I adore her creations, especially the glitters although they can be a pain to remove. 😉 (However, I’m patient…) Some Enchanted Evening is packed with pink glitter in various shapes and sizes in a transparent base.
That’s still the bottle. 😉
Two coats of Some Enchanted Evening over Essie Made to Honor; again some ‘older’ photos, guess they were taken in spring. But I like glitter polishes when the days become shorter, with Christmas approaching.
From tomorrow until Tuesday, I’ll be in Durham (North East)… Here’s the latest addition, Yellow Brick Road by Deborah Lippmann, a jelly-based yellow. I’m a huge fan of L Frank Baum’s The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, so Yellow Brick Road reminds me of this (but also of the mystery horror film Yellowbrickroad, which is really a weird movie!), but I guess that this varnish derives from Deborah Lippmann’s collaboration with Lady GaGa. Well done!
Yellow is still a favourite shade on my nails; this one’s very opaque, but four coats gave it opaqueness.
Again. This post more or less replaces the old one.
At least on my nails it’s fun time today, since it is my actual birthday (and the bottle will hopefully last for the next 30 years or so…). For a couple days, I was unsure whether to go posh (Facettes d’Or/Chanel) or cheerful (Happy Birthday) because, I must admit, I have not been in a very bright mood this week. I was sooo looking forward to my birthday – but some things have changed, unexpectedly, lots of other things have happened, plain and simple, it is overwhelming.
Nevertheless, here’s the nail varnish. As mentioned in the previous Happy Birthday post, it’s got a sheer jelly base that is packed with glitters coming in various colours and shapes. After the base (Essie Fill the Gap) I applied one coat of Essie Made to Honor before doing three coats of Happy Birthday.
It does look happy, as long as I don’t think about how to remove this stuff!
One of my best friends in Durham did this cake for me three years ago. 🙂
Party In A Bottle. A transparent base with multicoloured glitter in various shapes.
