Black teams up with holo glitter – that’s why I picked 1000 Light Years Away for last weekend, when I attended Fantasy Filmfest White Nights. I thought that this combo, which also reminds of a little galaxy on the nail, would suit fantastic and horror films. The glitter comes in various sizes.
Two coats applied. These photos were taken directly after I had applied top coat; in fact 1000 Light Years Away is a top coat eater …
Daylight. The polish stayed on my nails for three days, and I had no problems with either chipping or tip wear. (But don’t forget that I spent about twelve hours on Saturday and Sunday at the cinema, went straight to bed after coming home, and I caught up with my chores on Monday again.) Just opened crisp bags while watching the ten films, and stirred my hot chocolate.

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!
With Christmas approaching, I’m definitely in the mood for glitter and bling (apart from Christmas sweaters 😉 ). Pour Some Glitter On Me is packed with hexagon-shaped golden and silver glitter chunks, and it is even more special because it dries matte. That’s really something, isn’t it? 😉
I didn’t fish for the glitter and “poured” one coat on Chanel Fiction. You might notice the matte effect.
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”. 😉
