[Essence] It Wasn’t Me

It Wasn’t Me is almost vintage because it was released in 2015, and it’s only recently that I finally applied this  purple glitter. It’s almost eggplant or at least a deep purple shade, which is packed with purple and blue glitter.

The finish is gritty; here are two coats without top coat, for this sandy effect. In spite of all that glitter removal was easy.

[Essence] Mauve-llous Fairy

I’ve added this to my stash in 2015 and indeed never got to wear it – until two weeks ago. Mauve-llous Fairy has a slightly transparent mauve base, which is filled with mauve, silver and lilac glitter.

To achieve opaqueness (it wouldn’t get really opaque), I used three coats. No problem because Mauve-llous Fairy dries quickly.

[Essence] Play With My Mint

Play With My Mint; this is a shade I had wanted to try for so long. Mint green is for sure a favourite colour. This came as a surprise with my Essence advent calendar, hence the cute snowflakes on the lid.

Application was two coats. Perfect mint green – and glossy on its own already (although I sealed the manicure with a top coat).

[Essence] Chrome Paradise

My daughter put this on her nails yesterday (she’s doing her nails on her own now 🙂 ) and I thought I could post this – with my own nails. Chrome Paradise combines dark green, grey/silver and purple shades with an iridescent shimmer finish. Quite complex and pretty.

[A England] Sparks Divine

Happy Easter! Hope that you are enjoying some free days with wonderful people around you. Although my nail polish pick for Easter is Garden (I like its green undertones, really feels like springtime), I chose to show Sparks Divine today, thw photos of which had been in my drafts for quite some weeks. This is a caramel shade with a pretty shimmer, reminding me a bit of soft brown sugar. 😉

[Essence] Be My Town Home (over City Girls Rule)

Be My Town Home is an amazing glitter top coat I was given at, I guess, my birthday, thus way back in November, and which I have not tried until recently. It’s beautiful and stunning containing glitter in various shapes and sizes, such as white hexagon chunks, black, pink and fuchsia glitter bits. They all come in a transparent base, no need for fishing either.

Here is one coat of Be My Town Home over Essence City Girls Rule (not yet shown), a silver foil.

[Anna Gorelova by Dance Legend] Baechnik (Баечник)

Actually meant for Halloween, I wore Baechnik about a week ago because it matched perfectly my grey and black striped knit dress, and I am trying some Fantasy Filmfest outfits at present. Only a little more than one month to go until the “Nights” will be starting, marking the start of my personal film fest year. 🙂

Baechnik has a very transparent light grey base and is packed with black glitter coming in different shape and size, even spider-shaped, but it does not look too creepy. Fishing for bigger glitter chunks is easy too.


Because it’s so sheer, I applied three coats.

[A England] Wuthering Heights

Pretty, isn’t it? Wuthering Heights has a grey base with a hint of lilac (visible under direct light,which I did not have 😦 ) – and holographic finish. This is of course named after the novel by Emily Brontë, which I remember reading when I was 18-ish and I don’t remember too much of it, just the popular, tragical stuff …

So this is the Wutherings Heights nail varnish, two coats applied.
