[Chanel] Sargasso (#558)

Finally the first summer nail varnish. I’ve had Sargasso for a few weeks now but could not manage posting the photos earlier. This is such a beautiful shade, grey with green (or, as Chanel says, blue-green) shimmer. I have always been fond of Black Pearl, and Sargasso reminds me of this, although darker and without the pearl finish.

Shown below is two coats. It’s hard to notice the shimmer, which is more than subtle, once applied. Artificial light.

[China Glaze] Good Tide-ings

Bright periwinkle blue. I also notice a hint of lilac in this, at least under artificial light.

Natural light, under which Good Tide-ings might appear a bit dull but don’t get deceived, this is definitely on the brighter side.

Not long after Fantasy Filmfest Nights (they are touring this weekend again, in Munich, Frankfurt, Cologne, Stuttgart and Nuremberg) I was at Savoy cinema again because they were screening the cult Battle Royale (2000). And of course there they were again, some of my Fantasy Filmfest fellows, like a study group. 😉 I also reserved tickets for Tuesday next week, to watch Guardians of the Galaxy 2.0 with my daughter, although I’m not into Marvel superheroes and ignored the first part, but I adore raccoons and everything “bear” 🐻 , and there is Rocket raccoon in it.

[Dior] Tease (#550)

So I spent last weekend at Fantasy Filmfest Nights, the smaller film festival which starts my usual festival year. Ten films in two days, and this year, they were especially good (last year, they presented too much mainstream stuff and thus a sold-out theatre), lots of sick themes, creepy stuff but also fun.

Yesterday was some kind of recreation day, catching up with tons of laundry, organising the week and so on (at the swimming pool, I was just like in the water, not actually swimming :mrgreen: ), so that I can show the next nail polish today. 🙂

Hence on to Tease, which is peach with a proportion of pink. Not really something for a horror film festival (I should have mentioned that I’ll be at the cinema again tomorrow, to watch a special screening of Battle Royale, totally addicted, haha) but classy and timeless. It’s been a while since I took the photos.
