[Chanel] Bleu Trompeur (#624)

Bleu Trompeur; this is blue and kind of a crème-jelly hybrid, although opaque with two coats and having an amazing glossy finish.

Dior Azur topped with Eclosion

Happy Easter!


I haven’t got a special Easter manicure but decided for something colourful the days before Easter, Azur topped with Eclosion. I was really sick of cold wet (and icy) days and wanted something bright, to invite Spring.

But then it snowed the next day! :mrgreen: This was taken after swimming, on my way home. Just notice the snow in the background. 😮

Nevertheless a close-up. Of the nails, not the snow of course. 😉

For the actual Easter days I decided on Glory, which is currently on my nails.

[A England] Katherine Parr

Sorry for posting so many A England nail colours these days, but it’s the only brand I am currently wearing, since I am so addicted to the Tudoresque collection. 😉 Today’s nail varnish is Katherine Parr, again scattered holographic finish. Base colour is blue but with hints of lilac and a pink shimmer.

Two coats shown below. This, too, applies flawlessly and presents high opaqueness.




Natural light – even with direct sunlight.

[Essence] Icebreaker

Here’s an older Essence. I picked Icebreaker about three years ago because of its fascinating, slightly iridescent shimmer. The base is blue and the shimmer is magenta.


Sadly the formula is very sheer. Shown below is three coats and there is still a visible nail line. But the shimmer is amazing.

[Manhattan] Midnight Sparkle

I guess you won’t be surprised to hear that I have a ton of nail varnishes in my stash which I have not worn, nor swatched yet. There are many pretty colours among them, such as Midnight Sparkle. This is denim blue with small silver and blue glassflecks.


Moreover, but it does not say so on the bottle, it dries semi-matte. Shown below is two coats.
