December already and I just recognised that snow is back at WordPress! Let’s combine this with Winter, which I own since 2013 but have not applied before because I am not really into almost sheer shades, even when they contain golden and silver shimmer in a tinted white base. I don’t remember if Winter was meant to be a top coat? Nevertheless, here we go.
Three coats of Winter on its own.
Getting sparkly again. 🙂 I thought this looks a bit like Christmas, because Holo At Ya Girl contains green, gold and turquoise glitter in a slightly tinted (purple-ish) base.
Two coats applied. The glitter is so dense that it builds up quickly.
This is Golden. Pure liquid gold, to say so. I might become a fan of golden nail colours, probably due to the season. 😉
Shown below is two coats.
You might remember that I am not a huge fan of golden nail colours (I actually haven’t heard of anyone who is), but Chaîne Or is somewhat different, and I really liked wearing it – and will probably apply it again. It is more a yellow gold, shimmer finish too. When I went swimming, it really sparkled in the water and sunlight, and I have to admit: I like this.
Two coats applied.
So here is Canotier, which at first I did not like too much since I am not a fan of gold-leaning shades, although Canotier is more a muted gold with hints of silver. Metallic finish – thus it is sensitive to visible brush strokes.
Two coats applied and not really my kind of shade, as mentioned above. But I also admit that I liked it with my skin tone and that’s why it wasn’t too bad in the end. 🙂
(Comments are manually approved at present but this is only temporarily. I have not become paranoid over night, just a precaution maybe. Don’t take it personally. I was kind of at variance with a long-term reader and sort of acquaintance, a matter I dedicated more attention than it deserved. So that’s why.)
This is Gris-Or, really pretty – gold and grey with hints of pink and lilac. Moreover, it’s iridescent with a shimmer finish.
Two coats shown below and this really put me in the mood for Christmas. I am not a huge fan of golden-based shades but thanks to the visible proportion of grey, and pink flashing through depending on the lighting, I liked Gris-Or on my nails.
Another Chanel; Samba is a copper-bronze duochrome with a visible shimmer, a wonderful shade for the summer.
For the swatches, I used two coats.
