So I presented No Hurries, No Worries (aka one of the most opaque nail varnishes 😎 ) yesterday, and here it is topped with Reflects. Reflects is meant as a top coat and packed with golden glassflecks in a sheer base.
One coat of Reflects over my (two-coat) No Hurries, No Worries mani to achieve a slightly golden shimmer.

For the last couple days, I’ve been wearing Tout Paris, which is classic red – but far from being plain. Stunning colour.
Taking advantage of the sunshine. 😎 Two coats applied.
Night Shock. I don’t wear dark colours that often when days get shorter – but this has been in my stash for a while, so I gave it a try. Nevertheless, Night Shock looked really pretty when I went to the swimming bath, refelcted by sunlight and the water. The base colour is dark grey or charcoal grey, and it is packed with microglitter for a shimmer finish.
Shown below is two coats. We are at my mother’s place currently, since it’s autumn holidays, and it feels nice being here. I wasn’t lucky regarding the weather when taking photos, but at least you’ll notice the shimmer in the bottle.
So – Bleu Galuchat. This is a dark blue with a hint of teal, also containing glitter particles.
And having a leather effect finish (which you won’t notice from looking at the bottle though).
Honest opinion – although I (still) like most sand finish polishes and all of my YSL nail varnishes, I wasn’t really convinced by Bleu Galuchat. Maybe because the glitter can rarely be noticed after application; I had hoped for Bleu Galuchat being more sparkly. For the first time, regarding sand finishes, I also tried a topcoat, but it looks quite disastrous. In the end, I grabbed the nail polish remover and did another mani … 🙄 Nevertheless, Bleu Galuchat deserves a second chance (I really like this colour) sometime.
Lots of Chanel posts coming up here; I admit that I’m currently very much (again) into their nail polishes. So this is Exception, a red brown (or brownish red) with a slight shimmer, visible in the bottle. When I first saw it in real, I thought of Accessoire (573) and the “new”, brownish Paparazzi (579). It is indeed very close to Accessoire, and I will also need to have a look at Koala and Madness, since Exception is for sure in their colour family.
Exception is pretty opaque with just one coat, however, shown below is two coats.
So here is another post with two of the Chanel Fall colours, Atmosphère layered over Secret. I used two coats of Secret and topped them with one coat of Atmosphère.
Yes, I like this look but, to be honest, prefer Atmosphère on its own. It is so complex and beautiful.
I wanted to do the same regarding Orage, i.e. layering Atmosphère over it, but I forgot … so this would have to wait until I’ll be wearing Orage again, but this might probably be soon. 🙂
Another dark autumn colour. Orage is a blackened blue or very dark indigo blue with a slight shimmer.
At first and after applying one coat, I thought this might be more on the sheer side, but it’s perfectly opaque with two coats, as you can see below.
