While waiting for the spring collections to arrive at Alsterhaus, here is City of Stars, which was a Christmas gift from my daughter, who knows too well that I can’t resist night sky colours. Hence City of Stars is a dense glitter, packed with blue, turquoise and green microglitter bits.
Two coats shown below.
New year, new postings – so far for the plans. I saved the glitter top coat of Dior’s Happy 2020 Christmas collection for New Year, so here it is. It’s a transparent pink base with lots of multicoloured glitter. At first glance, there are golden, turquoise, blue and pink glitter bits.

This manicure was amazing, not only for the combination of colourful glitter over black but it lasted for three days without any chipping or tipwear. And I would still have it on my nails, wasn’t it for a change of colour matching tomorrow’s outfit. We’ll be going back to Hamburg then. Not really looking forward to it because I enjoyed the peaceful and quiet rural environment.
This came out last year for Christmas, and I haven’t been wearing it until my birthday (which was in November) because the bottle of my traditional nail varnish, Happy Birthday, was finally used, except for some thick glitter stuff at the bottle … In spite of all the tragic and hardships of the past months, I still wanted something cheerful on my nails. So it was multicolour glitter in a sheer base.
Two coats shown below. I still think the Grinch collection is so pretty!

Look what I found in my stash – in the meantime, Manhattan have changed their bottle design ages ago, and there are still nail varnishes in my collection I hadn’t applied yet. Purple Poetry has a purple base enriched with pink and blue glassflecks.

Back in Hamburg, here is Nuit Blanche, the light sister polish of Nuit Noire. This one is rather sheer and hence more suited as an effect top coat, containing white and iridescent glassflecks.
Three coats shown below – it’s not really meant to be worn on its own, even though the flakies look quite dense in the bottle.
I’ve got new photos of Shadow … (here’s the initial post). Two coats and finally daylight.
Bin scenery in the background! 🙄

I check the Dior website regularly, for new releases and inspiration. Hence I found Coraloha, a semi-sheer coral base with golden and coral glitter particles. I don’t know the collection it belongs to – any suggestions welcome -, I just ordered it because I noticed that I needed it for my stash, and I don’t know whether it’s meant to be used as a topper either.
Since it’s really sheer, this is three coats, still with visible nail line.
But the colour is pretty and the glitter makes it somehow special. Here it is outside under natural light.
