[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.

[Chanel] Sweet Star

Sweet Star is a sparkly duochrome, shifting between lilac/purple and silver. So beautiful and really awesome; this might become my favourite Chanel nail varnish of the 2014 releases (although I’m really looking forward to Phenix).

[Chanel] Azuré

Azuré is the third polish of Chanel’s 2013 summer collection. I received from Judi from the States, it was a lucky coincidence, since this time, I didn’t want to buy the varnishes from Alsterhaus, for various reasons… Judi, moreover, had to Azurés – and that’s how I got mine. 🙂

This is a metallic turquoise/greenish duochrome, reminding of an ocean. Since we finally had some sunny days, I tried this with my tanned skin.

And because of the same sunny weather, I managed to take a close-up shot of Azuré.

[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:
