[Dior] Blazing Bronze (#729)

Definitely a summer colour and perfect for sunny days: Blazing Bronze (which is more a brown bronze) is one of my favourite summer shades for this year. It’s packed with golden and bronze shimmer, which is already prominent in the bottle and also visible on the nails.

[China Glaze] Meet Me In the Mirage

This is an older draft, from October. The garden in the background looks different now. 😉

Meet Me In the Mirage is a rose gold foil, also containing hints of bronze. Sparkly and pretty.

Shown below is two coats. I had wanted to apply this for so long; it is more a summer colour, and a bit of sunshine would have brought out its sparkles.

Czarina Gold (Or Tsarine) (916) – again

Back again. Although some Diors arrived during the past days – and I collected the brand new Skyline colours for autumn – I have not tried any new shades so far. Don’t know why, mainly because of the weather and due to lack of time. Less than one month and Fantasy Filmfest is going to start – it’s the 30th anniversary. So looking forward to eleven days of film addiction.

For the time being, here is Czarina Gold, which is actually a Christmas colour. But since I like wearing dark shades with bright sunlight (especially when they a a bit sparkling), I didn’t mind. 😉 Brown and bronze base with tons of glassflecks which come in olive and gold. I had posted this before, in 2012.

Two coats shown below.

[Chanel] Golden Sand (317)

Golden Sand lives up to its name; this one is a muted gold (gold and bronze) shade presenting a pearl finish (thus it can get a bit streaky).

Programmes and timetables for Fantasy Filmfest are now online, really early this year, although screenings in Berlin will start on 17 August (with Hamburg being the last festival city from 8-18 September). So what I have been basically doing for the last days was watching film trailers. :mrgreen: I really can’t wait!

[Chanel] Patine (Garland)

Another vintage Chanel nail varnish. Patine/Garland is basically bronze with a visible hint of copper and golden shimmer.

Patine (Garland)

Surprisingly, it looked good with my skin tone and I really liked it on my nails. In addition, this is very easy to combine with every make-up or clothes. 🙂

[Chanel] Or de Russie (327)

Or de Russie presents bronze and brown microglitter in a blackend base, the glitter being dense. Moreover, depending on the lighting, this can appear olive too.

Or de Russie

Application was (the usual) two coats and I noted that, on the nails, it looks darker than I thought. I liked this since it is a great shade to combine with any colour, bright as well as neutral.
