[Dior] Hot (#531)

Hot has an orange base with hints of terracotta, and it also contains golden shimmer particles. The colour reminds me of carrot & ginger soup. 😉

Steel My Soul

Pulled this out again, i.e. found it at my mother’s. I’ve shown this already but still like the colour (which is taupe with a hint of lilac, as well as golden microglitter) and the finish; it’s called “Brushed Metal Effect” – similar to suède finish. Since Steel My Soul was released in 2012 – and Catrice have changed their bottle shape a while ago -, it’s not available any more, sorry for that.

Application was two coats. I remember that back in the early (2012) days, I didn’t have many matte nail polishes and was still fascinated by this finish.

[Dior] Wizz (#541)

I’ll be off to my mother’s again, but let me show Wizz before I won’t be posting for the next few days because I am not taking my laptop with me.

Wizz is a coral shade containing subtle golden shimmer.

[Chanel] Rose Prodigious (#586)

I just realised that the last post seems ages ago and that I still owe you, especially berrymilktea, photos of Rose Prodigious. This is berry with copper shimmer.

Two coats applied. Artificial light (the shimmer does not really show). Overall, this is very pretty, feminine and elegant.

I took this photo spontaneously when I was on the way to the metro. The sun came out for a short while, so I seized the opportunity.
