[Chanel] Rose Prodigious (#586)

I just realised that the last post seems ages ago and that I still owe you, especially berrymilktea, photos of Rose Prodigious. This is berry with copper shimmer.

Two coats applied. Artificial light (the shimmer does not really show). Overall, this is very pretty, feminine and elegant.

I took this photo spontaneously when I was on the way to the metro. The sun came out for a short while, so I seized the opportunity.

[Yves Saint Laurent] Fuchsia Intemporel (#9)

Hello there! Yesterday I checked my stash and realised that there are still so many Chanel and Dior nail varnishes I haven’t shown yet, not only vintage shades but also newer ones, such as Rouge Red of this year or Monochrome (standard collection).  I was sure that I had already tried them, but no. Good for you though, still lots of stuff to go through. 😉

As for Yves Saint Laurent, I don’t own that many of this brand’s nail colours. Here is one I bought recently, Fuchsia Intemporel, which is … fuchsia!

Or fuchsia with a hint of berry. This is two coats.

[Dior] Precious (#779)

Precious is my favourite of the Dior nail varnishes for Christmas 2016. I have not tried red Splendor so far, but I think, Precious just is it. It’s not really pink (less blue-leaning and thus warmer), more a raspberry red with microglitter.


Application was two coats.

[Chanel] Golden Raspberry (Rose d’Or) (#46)

I am waiting for the Christmas collections to be released and trying some of my vintage nail colours in the meantime. This is Golden Raspberry (or Rose d’Or), a raspberry red with golden shimmer. As often with older polishes, I do not now how this might be, but the formula is still smooth.

Two coats applied. There is indeed a fine golden shimmer on the nails.
