Can you imagine it’s freezing out there again? On Friday (when we were still in Lower Saxony) it was even snowing but being in a nicely heated swimming bath watching the snow can be a bliss. 🙂 So I’m back to swimming again and it is great.
Here’s a foil; I’ve been storing Carly for ages and finally applied it. Even though I might associate foil finishes with winter, this was actually released as part of a summer collection. Purple base and the glitter comes in silver and red particles.
Two coats applied.
Some photos under natural light.
I am currently wearing Sprung and since it’s been a while since my last OPI post (I haven’t bought nail colour of this brand recently) I thought I could share this with you – although there is a already a blog entry. Nevertheless, I think that with its copper foil finish Sprung is made for this season. Hard to believe that it was actually released for Spring, isn’t it? 🙂
This is two coats.
Altough I am definitely no fan of winter or cold wheather, I am beginning to adapt to it. I still cannot say that I like being outside during rain or snow – but I go swimming regularly (I always loved swimming) and swim long distances, and I guess it helps coping with any season. I don’t feel that uncomfortable during winter anymore. Normally wintertime was equal to permanently suffering from a cold. 😉 But regardless of the wheater, I make my way to the swimming bath and realised that it’s probably only a matter of the right clothes. We’ll see!
This is an older draft, from October. The garden in the background looks different now. 😉
Meet Me In the Mirage is a rose gold foil, also containing hints of bronze. Sparkly and pretty.
Shown below is two coats. I had wanted to apply this for so long; it is more a summer colour, and a bit of sunshine would have brought out its sparkles.
Liquid Mirror. I like grey and silver on my nails, at least from time to time; moreover, silver is rare in collections, regarding nail colour. Liquid Mirror is a silver foil, flashy yet elegant.
Two coats shown below.
This is how Liquid Mirror relates to other silver shades: Silver, Intemporel, Liquid Mirror and Miroir.
Just stopping by and hope you are all having amazing Christmas days! We are at my mother’s place now and I’m enjoying the calmness. This is really different than Hamburg’s city life (although I have plans regarding Dior as soon as I’m back, haha!), not the place where I grew up but a spot I do know quite well.
Today’s post is featuring Flashy Wonderland, a liquid foil shade combining lilac (with hint of purple) and silver. In the bottle, it looks more silver-leaning but this really ‘melts’ with the nail varnish being applied, leaving an indeed ‘flashy’ lilac, which is also a bit mirror-like. Flashy Wonderland had been kindly given to me by my daughter and mother. 🙂
Two coats shown below.
Omen is a bright green with silver glitter and foil finish. Moreover, this is UV-sensitive – so that I really regret not having a UV lamp. But I guess it’s outstanding already because of its colour …
Shown below is two coats.
Again, I have tons of swatches of recent varnishes, such as Chanel Cosmic and Magic, but I still need to edit those pics, or even upload them. So I decided to browse through my drafts – there are loads of them too. 🙄
The Samba box contains two shades with a smaller bottle size than usual; here is the turquoise one, #794 (it doesn’t officially have a name), presenting a foil finish.
Two coats. This is wonderful for sunny days
Perfect beach life, but without Samba #794 (and Bäri Bäri).
