[ManGlaze] Santorum

Gosh, the name! :mrgreen: Check out Wikepedia or some urban dictionary, if you haven’t heard of “santorum” before, it only sounds like a monastic order 🙄 … As for this nail varnish, the colour is dark brown with shimmer, due to silver microglitter. Super matte finish too.

Application was two coats. Artificial light:

Natural light on the next day; I had applied hand cream and did some household chores, that’s why the finish looks more glossy in these pics.

[Dior] Reflects (#228) (over Essence No Hurries, No Worries)

So I presented No Hurries, No Worries (aka one of the most opaque nail varnishes 😎 ) yesterday, and here it is topped with Reflects. Reflects is meant as a top coat and packed with golden glassflecks in a sheer base.

One coat of Reflects over my (two-coat) No Hurries, No Worries mani to achieve a slightly golden shimmer.

[Essence] No Hurries, No Worries

When I noticed No Hurries, No Worries at the local drugstore near my mother’s, I could not resist. White. Just pure and plain white.

But what is more, No Hurries, No Worries has great coverage. Shown below is two coats; having some experience with white nail polishes, I feared at least three coats … So overall, this is amazing!

Artificial light. I’ve had No Hurries, No Worries on my nails for three days – topped it with Dior Reflects on day 2. No chipping, no tip wear. 🙂

[Chanel] Inframétal

First entry for this month – Japan Filmfest Hamburg ended last Sunday and – as always – I had a wonderful time. It’s a bit like going on a study or even school trip, only with sleeping at home. But with being at the cinema around noon and finishing past 1 am (that’s five to six films a day), it feels like that. 🙂

Inframétal would have been a good pick regarding the (mainly) horror-themed films I saw. It’s charcoal metallic with shimmer.

[China Glaze] Fresh Prince-ss

Japan Filmfest Hamburg is approaching, only two days to go, and for the first time (mainly due to my general admission ticket), I’ll be joining the opening night with “Innocent Blood”. Really looking forward! 🙂

As for further preparation (actually just for fun), I have planned to finally visit Sakura manga shop tomorrow – let’s see what they have got. To be honest, it’s more my daughter who wanted to go there (I’m more of a film buff).

But let’s skip this and have a look at today’s nail varnish, which is Fresh Prince-ss. Baby pink, a bit like sakura maybe. 😉

Shown below is two coats. Flawless China Glaze quality as always.
