[Dior] Nuit 1947

Not much to say about this beautiful dark red. Nuit 1947 is the kind of vampy shades I like. Also notice my bare nails reflecting in the lid … 😉

[Essie] Leading Lady

This has been the signature shade of Essie’s Holiday Collection of last year, Leading Lady. It’s a berry red with a jelly base containing glitter particles of different sizes.

Two coats. Leading Lady actually reminds me of the varnish I’m wearing right now, China Glaze Ruby Pumps (although the latter is more red-based and has smaller glitter bits.)

[a-england] Jane Eyre

I adore each of the collections by a-england, but the Gothic Beauties contain some of my favourite shades. Jane Eyre has a black base with a noticeable eggplant/wine red shimmer. I read the book during my final year at school, like so many classic novels.

Two coats. Gosh, it was at the end of November last year when I took those photos … And because of the time of the year, all of them were taken under artificial light.

[Dior] Icône

Thought I had already posted this, since I did the mani way back in May… Icône is so beautiful, it’s the darkest member of the Les Rouges family. Very vampy, also containing a visible shimmer.

Two coats… I think I should wear this again soon! And those long nails, it seems ages ago. 😉

[Chanel] Malice

Malice is this year’s holiday varnish by Chanel. In Germany, it’s only available at Breuninger (Stuttgart) and KaDeWe (Berlin) department stores. Luckily, my friend RoteNina surprised me with this by getting it directly from Breuninger right after they had received the Christmas collection. 🙂 Thank you again!

The shade is definitely Christmas-themed, being a dark red/burgundy red with a visible shimmer.

Daylight photos. I’m sorry but I could not manage doing a makro shot of Malice’s shimmer, since lightning was so bad… 😦
