Shadow (#783) again

I’ve got new photos of Shadow … (here’s the initial post). Two coats and finally daylight.

Bridal Veil

Bridal Veil (shown before) was my pick for Fantasy Filmfest closing night. I thought this charcoal shade with holographic glitter particles would be perfect for the last day filled with great films.

Two coats applied. Unfortunately no direct sunlight but cloudy sky, so you don’t notice the shimmer.

Artificial light with brings out the sparkle.

Steel My Soul

Pulled this out again, i.e. found it at my mother’s. I’ve shown this already but still like the colour (which is taupe with a hint of lilac, as well as golden microglitter) and the finish; it’s called “Brushed Metal Effect” – similar to suède finish. Since Steel My Soul was released in 2012 – and Catrice have changed their bottle shape a while ago -, it’s not available any more, sorry for that.

Application was two coats. I remember that back in the early (2012) days, I didn’t have many matte nail polishes and was still fascinated by this finish.

[The Hungry Asian] Zera

I have the summer nail varnishes of Chanel and Dior ready to be applied – but first, it’s Zera. Last week I was in the mood for grey, and this one comes with a subtle green shimmer.

After I had taken the photos I realised that there was still a draft waiting to be posted – since 2012! So here are the old photos, two coats (I guess).

[Essence] Grey-t to be here

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! 😮

[Chanel] Distraction (#549)

I remember that I, for sure, applied Distraction after its release in 2012 – but as I didn’t find any entry in this little web space, nor draft, I must have forgotten to take photos. However, Distraction is a beautiful coral shade with pink shimmer, which I am finally presenting.

Application was two coats. Daylight and cinnamon ice cream. :mrgreen:
