[A England] Sleeping Palace

Hidden beauty in my stash – literally. It’s been a while since I purchased Sleeping Palace, 2013 to be precise. But only recently I came to wear it. The colour is a muted plum with copper and scattered holographic finish.


Two coats shown below under artificial light.

[Chanel] Patine (Garland)

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

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] Troublante (675)

I guess this is my favourite for autumn: Troublante. I’m wearing this for the second time now and I know I will be quite sad when having to remove it. So pretty and stunning – and hard to describe. Troublante is composed of copper, bronze and purple, also with a visible proportion of purple. It’s so complex, it also has a shimmer finish and shifts colours all the time, depending on the angle and lighting it is exposed to.


Two coats shown below and a couple of photos. I am definitely not a fan of colder seasons, but with Troublante, I might enjoy them at least when looking at my nails!

[Chanel] Salsa (13)

I did not buy many nail varnishes during the past few weeks – still waiting for new collections being released. Nevertheless, my drafts are bursting, and since the weather is gradually getting warmer and, overall, nicer, I am looking forward to more summer days. Salsa is a colour that looks great in bright sunshine; it’s a duochrome and shifting between copper, orange and fuchsia.


Shwon below is two coats.

[Dior] Vibrato (618)

Vibrato. Usually, I’m not that much into golden/bronze-leaning shades, but this one is really pretty. It’s more on the copper/bronze side and packed with glitter.


Two coats applied and I admit, I liked it on my nails. Maybe because of Christmas being near. 😉

[OPI] Sprung

Here’s the next shade from the Mariah Carey Collection, Sprung, a copper tone with glitter. Very sparkly.


Most copper shades fit my skintone, which was the case with Sprung, too. This is two coats. I don’t own that many copper colours, so I’m happy to add this one to my collection (but I hardly wear these shades, I guess…).
