New photos, it’s been a while, so thanks for stopping by. But I don’t want to bother you with my current state – loss, coping with suicide, everything turned upside down. It’s basically a nightmare happening since 9 September.
So, on to Pure Black (it’s in the name).
Two coats shown below, and the green shimmer is the reflection of my phone case …
Bridal Veil (shown before) was my pick for Fantasy Filmfest closing night. I thought this charcoal shade with holographic glitter particles would be perfect for the last day filled with great films.
Two coats applied. Unfortunately no direct sunlight but cloudy sky, so you don’t notice the shimmer.
Artificial light with brings out the sparkle.
And another colour I had shown before: A England Jane Eyre. Here are some photos of last week, taken outside, hence natural light. Jane Eyre is a black shade with red and copper microglitter.
I’m at my mother’s for almost one week and it’s so peaceful and calm here. Lots of space, fresh air and my favourite swimming bath. I did my nails with Ciaté Chinchilla a couple of days ago but forgot to take photos – it’s a dove grey, which I will certainly be wearing again.
In my drafts I found these photos of Black Magic, probably taken sometime in spring. As always, two coats applied.
This is the latest black Chanel has released – for Christmas last year, who would have thought? 😉 It’s stunning (although “just” black) and would be perfect for Fantasy Filmfest White Nights, which will finally take place in Hamburg too. Can’t wait.
Two coats shown below.
Lancelot was perfect for the final day of Fantasy Filmfest. Amazing blackened cherry red, which I could not wait to try.
Two coats shown below. It’s hard to see that this is actually a very, very deep red. But it is, although the proportion of black is really high.
Last matte nail colour I am showing for the time being – you have my word. 😉 I’ve posted Matte is Murder before, back in 2011, and wore it again during Fantasy Filmfest. Because black and horror movies are a good match, and matte black with glitter is even better. Two coats applied, no top coat.
This is from the current Midnight Masquerade collection and reminds me of Chanel Ombre Essentielle “Swing” eyeshadow, only as nail varnish. They are a perfect match. Meet Me Midnight is a blue glitter polish; the small glitter being so dense that I’m not sure whether it has a blackened base … It’s also a bit iridescent, shifting from medium blue to dark blue, sometimes with a hint of purple.
Two coats shown below. I had slight issues with the stubborn brush, maybe because I have not applied Essence nail colours for quite a while and because of the bristles being cut straight at the tip. But then I got the trick and the second coat was flawless.
Here’s Gris Obscur, my latest Chanel nail varnish. Although it is called Gris, it is more a blackened dark grey (if not black) with silver microshimmer – but still unique.
Application was two coats. On the nails, the shimmer does not really show, it’s very, very subtle.

Heathcliff presents multicolour glitter in a black jelly base, the glitter bits being red, blue, silver, gold, and purple.
I applied two coats for perfect coverage (and tried not to think about removal issues, haha). To achieve a smooth finish, I sealed the mani with top coat.
