Hello again and Happy New Year! I am so glad that 2018 is finally gone and am eager to see what 2019 will bring.
I don’t have new photos to show because I have not yet tried any new varnishes, but I found an old draft of Sparks Divine in my stash (link to original post). This is the old version of this colour (I don’t own the new release), with only little bits of glitter showing after application, with probably two coats shown below.
Today, and before 1pm, I went shopping, swimming and see the undertaker; in the afternoon, I was at the graveyard. It’s been a bit windy, but overall a lovely day with a clear blue sky.
The town is Nienburg at river Weser (Lower Saxony, Germany),with a population of about 33,000. It’s cute with a beautiful medieval city centre. The photo shows a hotel next to the theatre (announced on the flags), which is also close by the swimming bath.
Baby pink, if not girly, with a hint of pastel. My Hula Hoop belongs indeed to my daughter but I could not resist this pretty colour.
Two coats shown below.
Happy Halloween! Hope you are having fun out there. I’m not doing anything special today; we were just watching a DVD (The Piano Forest, a Japanese Anime and not Halloween-themed) and gave out treats. 🙂 I thought Rouge Noir would fit All Hallows’ Eve – dark vampy red. This is the re-formulated version of 2016.
Application was two coats. Still one of my favourites.
Here’s the previous version of Rouge Noir, and I also like Free Bear Hugs by China Glaze, which is similar, if you are not looking for Chanel.
I’m affected by photobucket’s new T&Cs, which won’t allow embedding photos in third-party websites any more, if you have a free account (like me). That means that you will notice those funny (actually they are not really funny) black boxes in some posts. I’m working on this; I rediscovered my flickr account which I had set up years ago but never used, but migration will take some time, so thank you for still sticking around!
As for Monochrome, photos are hosted by flickr already. 😉 Pretty grey shade, two coats applied.
Just uploaded new pictures and thought, why not posting Pirate? It’s one of my favourite reds and I love the crelly formula as well as its colour. Here is the new formulated Pirate.
Two coats applied.
Wheather is crazy by the way. It’s noon now and we’ve already had a super dark sky with thunderstorms, while the sun is shining at the moment, with temperatures expecting to rise up to 30 degrees celsius. 😎 We’ll see, I’m going out later.
Plump Power. This is another shade my daughter gave me for my birthday; she had picked a dark plum.
Shown below is two coats. Plump Power really is that dark. 🙂
Natural light, we even had a bit of sunshine.
Rebel At Heart was a birthday present, given to me by my daughter, who knows that I am into sparkly shades. This has a dark grey base, packed with silver and some golden microglitter.
Two coats without top coat – Rebel At Heart dries a bit matte, but not gritty.
For the following photos, I added top coat, achieving a shinier result.
Just about to get the new Chanel nail colours for Christmas, here is some sort of classic shade, Particulière, but with the new formula of 2016 (see here for the previous version). I still like this elegant taupe; it matches every occasion, always looking good – love to combine it with a bold lip, for instance.
Two coats shown below.
You might remember that I am not a huge fan of golden nail colours (I actually haven’t heard of anyone who is), but Chaîne Or is somewhat different, and I really liked wearing it – and will probably apply it again. It is more a yellow gold, shimmer finish too. When I went swimming, it really sparkled in the water and sunlight, and I have to admit: I like this.
Two coats applied.
It’s not news that I like white on my nails. I just think it’s a classy and chic colour, also a bit extraordinary. I could not resist Sandy Toes & Salty Kisses when I first saw it at the drugstore – but did, in order to come back a couple of days later and after I found it sold out everywhere. Nevertheless, the brach I usually shop still had some leftovers of the collection – and I got it for free, because they had already removed everything from their database. So that was really sweet.
Sandy Toes & Salty Kisses is a true white with silver glitter, described as “sea salt finish” (i.e. gritty and matte).
Two coats turned out to be a bit patchy, so I needed three. What’s really disappointing, the glitter does not show once everything has dried. Not really showing through and hard to make out.
Next week the wheather is going to be brilliant, thus I will pull out my beloved China Glaze neons. It is probably supposed to be the last hot week for this summer. I know that you might be waiting for Dior Skyline, the only one of the autumn polishes I have not worn and shown yet, but I am currently more in the mood for bright and flashy colours …
