Hello! I’ve stayed in Hamburg over the weekend but took some time off the Internet and the more I have to catch up with now when it comes to work and organising stuff. Nevertheless I had a wonderful weekend.
Here is another green, an older one: Nawsome Sauce by ManGlaze.
Two coats shown below without top coat. And, yes, even though it looks glossy, it’s actually matte (but with shimmer).
I guess you won’t be surprised to hear that I have a ton of nail varnishes in my stash which I have not worn, nor swatched yet. There are many pretty colours among them, such as Midnight Sparkle. This is denim blue with small silver and blue glassflecks.
Moreover, but it does not say so on the bottle, it dries semi-matte. Shown below is two coats.
Going through my Essence drafts. … & my flaky caty is one of their recent releases, beige nude with black glitter and a finish that is frost and satin at the same time! What is more, look at its cute bottle design.
Two coats shown below, no top coat.

October already! Because of the German Reunification Day on Tuesday, I’m staying at my mother’s for a long weekend. Listen to the Sound of the Waves is the shade I applied yesterday. This nail varnish actually belongs to my daughter, but when I noticed it, I had to try it. In the bottle, it looks grey with silver microglitter, and it also says “Sand Effect” on the lid.
Once applied, however, the finish isn’t “sand” or even gritty at all. At no stage during application. Nevertheless, I don’t mind. I checked out other blogs, and they too report that Listen to the Sound of the Waves dries actually glossy. On the nails, it also shows hints of lilac, and the shimmer is very subtle. Overall, it’s very pretty! Shown below is two coats.
Been out for a walk. 🙂
Close-up. I think the glitter makes it seem three-dimensional, so probably this is what is referred to as “sand effect”. 😉
On to another holo glitter. Holo Fever is the lilac version of Holo Maniac – packed with an incredible amount of glitter, so that you hardly notice the transparent base.
Two coats shown below.
I have a couple of new Essence nail varnishes to share with you; most of the photos were already taken during the summer holidays. I am generally a huge fan of the Essence brand because their cute designs, especially with regard to their “trend editions” are always a surprise.
Concerning their current nail polish range, they have a small holo glitter series – and I snatched Holo Maniac from my daughter. The turquoise glitter (and it’s more a glitter bomb) made me think of China Glaze Atlantis, but the latter is more greenish. Nevertheless removal of both Holo Maniac and Atlantis is a pain.
Two coats applied; as with most dense glitters, this one is a topcoat eater too.
Last matte nail colour I am showing for the time being – you have my word. 😉 I’ve posted Matte is Murder before, back in 2011, and wore it again during Fantasy Filmfest. Because black and horror movies are a good match, and matte black with glitter is even better. Two coats applied, no top coat.
