[Essence] Chrome Paradise

My daughter put this on her nails yesterday (she’s doing her nails on her own now 🙂 ) and I thought I could post this – with my own nails. Chrome Paradise combines dark green, grey/silver and purple shades with an iridescent shimmer finish. Quite complex and pretty.

[Chanel] Vert Obscur (679)

There we go again; I had quite a few things to do and to prepare (and still haven’t carved the pumpkin for tomorrow, to put outside my mother’s place), but finally, here is Vert Obscur. This is a dark green, slightly blackened and with a jelly-ish formula.

Vert Obscur

Two coats applied. With one coat, Vert Obscur is rather patchy and sheer, while after a second coat, it also becomes very dark (but the green still being noticeable).

I like this colour very much! Moreover, I got the impression that Vert Obscur is similar to Orly Le Chateau. I wiped them both on a tissue, and their colour and finish turned out to be pretty close.

[Dior] Métropolis (701)

Fantasy Filmfest starts tomorrow (at least in Hamburg) and I was happy that I could pick the latest Dior nail varnishes yesterday – because it would have been difficult otherwise, since I am going to spend lots of time at Savoy movie theatre. This is the most exciting time of the year! 🙂

As for Métropolis, I guess it’s my favourite of the Dior autumn polishes. I instantly fell for this dark muted green, containing a proportion of grey.

Application was two coats. Unfortunately, cloudy skies again and lots of rain. Can’t really imagine that the weather is said to be getting better towards the weekend but I hope for sunshine!

[Essie] Dive Bar

This has been in my drafts for more than two years. 😯 No idea why it has taken me so long to post this, since Dive Bar is actually such a beautiful colour! This is an iridescent dark green with hints of teal and purple, as well as shimmer, really pretty for this time of the year.

Although these photos were taken in June 2012 ❗ , I am sure I used to coats back then. 😉

[Zoya] Evvie

Evvie is a dark green shade with a hint of grey, hard to describe … it’s easier regarding its name, reminding me of my little one. That’s why I opted for Evvie.

Although I liked how Evvie looks in her bottle (my daughter didn’t, she said, it’s not a ‘real’ colour 😉 ), she’s even more beautiful on the nails. Zoya nail varnishes apply flawlessly – so I did two coats.

[essence] Chic Reloaded

Happy New Year everyone! new year Hope you had a nice time yesterday. I don’t really miss 2012 and thus am looking forward to what 2013 might bring – apart from (hopefully) loads of beautiful nail varnish shades. 😉

A couple of minutes ago, I painted my nails with Chic Reloaded, which brings back a bit of yesterday’s party mood, since it’s a complex shade and shifting between dark green, grey, purple and whatever! :mrgreen:
