[Dior] Printemps – Été 2014

I have the feeling it’s never going stop raining; it’s already the second day with nonstop rainfalls, and I actualy thought we’ve got summer! Today I got up at 5.40 in the morning, in order to catch the train to Hamburg … and got so tired in the late afternoon. 😉 So I am back in the big city for two days.

Printemps – Été 2014 at least alludes to summer, also in terms of its colour, which is a bright carrot shade. Moreover, it is the exact colour of Dior Mango. Believe me, not a tad different.

So here is Printemps – Été 2014 on my nails, two coats.

[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.

[Dior] Night Shock (#808)

Night Shock. I don’t wear dark colours that often when days get shorter – but this has been in my stash for a while, so I gave it a try. Nevertheless, Night Shock looked really pretty when I went to the swimming bath, refelcted by sunlight and the water. The base colour is dark grey or charcoal grey, and it is packed with microglitter for a shimmer finish.


Shown below is two coats. We are at my mother’s place currently, since it’s autumn holidays, and it feels nice being here. I wasn’t lucky regarding the weather when taking photos, but at least you’ll notice the shimmer in the bottle.

[Catrice] Call Me Princess

Japan-Filmfest is scheduled to start on Wednesday. Today I secured my tickets and, of course, I have already chosen my “festival nail colour”: Call Me Princess had been waiting patiently; it’s been in my stash for a long time, being neglected. It’s a sand polish and although I like this finish very much there was a time when I simply ignored it. I tried Call Me Princess, which is pink with golden glitter, about two weeks ago and loved how it sparkles. As for Japan-Filmfest, I prefer glitters, anything that looks a bit crazy and sparkly, so Call Me Princess really deserves to be worn.


Two coats shown below. This also has the advantage of drying quickly.
