Well, hello! The past week was full of maths and I spent the weekend at my mothers and enjoyed “Frühjahrsmarkt” (kind of a fair), which was fun too. Although shops were open on Sunday and it was family day too, the small town in Lower Saxony wasn’t really crowded, nothing compared to Hamburg on a regular Saturday. I am so happy that it’s finally spring – we had like 24 degrees celsius on Sunday – and so needed it for my mood. I’m definitely made for hot temperatures.
Which you would find in Morocco. The Chanel nail polish of the same name is brown with a silver shimmer, also containing hints of bronze. I don’t know how old it is, but it is certainly a vintage colour.
Application was two coats.
Chanel released another dark brown, which looks like chocolate – I’m in love with Brun Contraste!
Brown always seem to go absolutely fine with my skintone, so two coats shown below.
Glossy finish even without applying top coat; this has kind of a built-in Le Gel top coat. 🙂
Sir Loyal Heart. Another unique nail colour in my stash; its base shifts between bronze and brown, containing maroon and golden shimmer. And, of course (because it’s A England 🙂 ) it’s a scattered holo finish.
Shown below is two coats.
Bengale is a brown shade with perhaps the slightest hint of khaki. But mostly brown.
Two coats shown below.
I’m back from Fantasy Filmfest (although I was in Hamburg all the time, of course, but spending time at the movies for almost 12 hours a day is somewhat different …) and, being super crazy about this horror and independent stuff, saw all of the 54 films. 😉
Right now I am wearing Jungle Matte on my nails, which is a brand new Dior. So they ae doing mattes now and kind of re-invented this finish with a formula that is super easy to apply and dries quickly. No gritty surface – just pure matte. Jungle Matte is a nude beige (or light brown) colour.
Daylight, two coats (no top coat, of course).
I tried to find Paparazzi in this blog, then realised that I had worn but obviously not been taking photos of it … thus I applied it again. The colour is brown with a hint of plum and copper shimmer.
Two coats shown below. I didn’t like it when I first tried it shortly after its release (hence summer 2013) but don’t remember why. Maybe the usual skinton/nail colour clash. Nevertheless, when I wore Paparazzi again a couple of weeks ago, I thought it looked really classy on my nails. Even under artificial light. 😉
Even better in daylight! 😎
So, I’m sorry for not having shown it before. But even if I had – Photobucket is still keeping my stuff on hold, and I am very slow regarding migrating to flickr. I usually try to update all posts (i. e. uploading photos again) I notice you were clicking on, so at least you’ll have those.
And for something else: Tomorrow we’ll be going to a pool party, which is taking place at the local swimming bath (it’s a small, but this place has only a population of 32,000). You remember that I love swimming and I go there regularly. There will be a professional setup, involving many games and so, of course, it’s especially for children, so I guess my daughter will have loads of fun. And me too. People are so incredibly nice over there, guests as well as staff. I have kind of a swimming buddy – not a real buddy, just an old man I can share a lane with when it gets too muddled up in the pool. So we never speak – but don’t get in each other’s way, and he is a bit faster than me, but I seem to have gotten better, haha. 😉 But what I was actually about to say: At first, I thought he was in his mid-50s, until I could take a look at his face without his goggles – I would have guessed: 70 and above. But swims so so fast! Today I had another peek, and believe me or not: He must be way older than 80! I was just thinking: OMG! 😯 I wish I was that fit. Amazing.
(Also loved that tousle-haired granny today, who was a slow swimmer but still decided to move to the fast track – which I only use when there is no other lap. She looked to happy and smiled a lot! 🙂 )
I have absolutely no idea when I took these photos – but since then, about seven years might indeed have passed! 😯 Thanks to the Phobtobucket fail and the vast majority of my photos not being displayed any more (I’m still working on it, migrating to Flickr, but I am progressing so slowly), I found Absolutely Stylish on my hard drive, wondering why I never published a post of this really unique brown with green glassflecks. So here it comes.
I am pretty sure that this is my usual two-coat application.
