Going through my Essence drafts. … & my flaky caty is one of their recent releases, beige nude with black glitter and a finish that is frost and satin at the same time! What is more, look at its cute bottle design.
Two coats shown below, no top coat.

I’m back from Fantasy Filmfest (although I was in Hamburg all the time, of course, but spending time at the movies for almost 12 hours a day is somewhat different …) and, being super crazy about this horror and independent stuff, saw all of the 54 films. 😉
Right now I am wearing Jungle Matte on my nails, which is a brand new Dior. So they ae doing mattes now and kind of re-invented this finish with a formula that is super easy to apply and dries quickly. No gritty surface – just pure matte. Jungle Matte is a nude beige (or light brown) colour.
Daylight, two coats (no top coat, of course).
I’m almost off to Fantasy Filmfest (while it’s raining heavily …) – officially Day One -, so this is going to be a short post, but I didn’t want to make you wait for ages for the next blog entry. So today it is all about New Dawn, which is dusty mauve, probably with a slight hint of beige. Exceptionally unique.
Two coats shown below.
When I went to Alsterhaus on Tuesday, to check whether the ladies at Dior know anything about the autumn collection, they were actually expecting me: A drawer was opened, showing three nail varnish boxes with my name attached. Surprise! I was speechless and impressed. 🙂
Today I had Enigma on my nails, which Dior describes as champagne shade, but in my view, it’s more rose gold, or even rosy beige (it certainly has a beige undertone), although with champagne bits of glitter.
Application was two coats. Summer seems to be over and I took the photos outside while it was raining and under grey clouds.
A single raindrop on the lid. 😉
I’ve been at my mother’s place for a week now and enjoying it so much. Didn’t tell you that Hamburg has early Easter holidays – so we are taking some time off in Lower Saxony, starting our days with swimming. I swam two kilometres each day except Sunday and it’s so great.
Once I’m back in Hamburg, there will be new Chanels to show. I noticed that I have not posted a nude shade – and an OPI nail varnish – for a while, so here is Barefoot in Barcelona. It’s beige with a proportion of rosewood. Lovely!
Two coats shown below and another premiere for this year: The weather is getting better (i. e. warmer) and thus I am taking photos outside again. 😎
One of those shades that look nicer in the bottle than on my nails. Beige Beige is indeed beige (with a hint of peach).
Combined with my skin tone … you barely notice that I’m wearing nail polish at all. That’s why I only swatched it because I had opted for some colour on my nails. But nevertheless I think that Beige Beige is somewhat of an elegant shade. Application was two coats.
Ivoire (which has been re-named to Muguet) is a semi-sheer nude shade, combining beige and rose.
Since this is really transparent, I used three coats – still without achieving opaqueness.
