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.
I’m back from Fantasy Filmfest Nights and had a wonderful time. Ten films in two days, that’s my passion. While I had chosen YSL Nuit Noire for the film fest (best match for the theme), I managed to try the second Polka Dot set, Pastilles, with 212 (beige) and 795 (turquoise)
This time, I was satisfied with how the dots looked. 😉 Actually quite proud. I gave up on the idea of holding to bottles at once because my hands are too small …
The turqoise shade is in fact much brighter, a bit hard to capture too. But I hope the photos might give you an idea. Unfortunately, this colour stained upon removal.
Jasmin, a neutral beige with a slight hint of pink, as well as a subtle shimmer, just very classy.
Coverage is not too opaque, so three (thin) coats are necessary, unless you would not mind a visible nail line. Unfortunately, it was impossible to capture the shimmer.
Chanel again, with an older release: Trapèze, combining grey/silver with hints of beige and taupe. Frost finish.
The formula of Trapèze is a bit sheer, so three coats were needed to achieve opaqueness.
China Glaze again. What’s She Dune is a beige nude, containing a small proportion of taupe. Probably not really meant for the current Christmas season (I like is sparkly these days) but I could not resist. 🙂
Two coats shown below.
