[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.

[Dior] Pow (#431)

I purchased Pow yesterday and applied it the same night. With it golden shimmer, this carrot orange looks so like summer.

[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.

Alchimie again

I’m bothering you with another “reloaded” mani. :mrgreen: But Alchimie can tell a story. When I first tried (and posted) this, I didn’t like it so much. Pretty but … it didn’t make it on my nails again until shortly.

A couple of years ago, my second husband went to Copenhagen, and that’s how I got a miniature Little Mermaid, which he had picked very carefully, because he wanted to pick a mermaid with the most beautiful hair. 😉 I kept her on my desk, then with my selection of nail varnishes I was planning to apply … and dropped her accidentally sometime in March. The head broke off. 😦 I was devastated but managed to glue the head back on. She looked good again, however, the crack was still visible – and that’s when Alchimie came into play. Nail varnishes are varnishes, aren’t they? 😉 This is the result:

Still a visible line, but Alchimie is indeed almost the same shade as the Little Mermaid.

Of course, I applied Alchimie on my nails too. 😉 It’s one of my favourite colours now.

[China Glaze] Custom Kicks

This is a real summer colour: Custom Kicks combines bright teal with golden microshimmer. The latter, however, is barely visible on the nails. But the shade is generally awesome.

Two coats applied. However, hard times after removal, i. e. stains. But the colour is worth it.
