This is Coquillage. Apricot with golden shimmer (which you should not expect to show up on the nail because it doesn’t, otherwise it would be really cool 😎 ).
Application was two coats. I am pretty tanned now (on Thursday, they’ll open the outdoor leisure pool again 🙂 ) and was surprised how good Coquillage looked in combination with my bronze skin.
Definitely a summer colour and perfect for sunny days: Blazing Bronze (which is more a brown bronze) is one of my favourite summer shades for this year. It’s packed with golden and bronze shimmer, which is already prominent in the bottle and also visible on the nails.
Two coats applied.

On Sunday I had Spring Bud on my nails. This is from the latest Diorsnow collection and thus Asia-exclusive (I got my bottle from Singapore). You may remember that I am deeply into greens. Spring bud is a seafoam green (not pastel) with golden and green shimmer.
Although it was cloudy in the morning the sun came out when we finished swimming, and so these photos were taken right in front of the swimming bath. 😉
I just realised that it has been six days since my last post; I am back in Hamburg now, having really enjoyed the break in Lower Saxony. Yesterday I picked up the latest Chanel and Dior nail varnishes, and Spring Bud from Asia-exclusive Diorsnow was delivered today. I am currently wearing Washed Denim by Chanel … so the will be a few shades to show. 🙂
For now I present Joy To The Waves (before spring will be finally kicking in). Blue with fine green and golden shimmer; to me, it looks more summer than Christmas.
Two coats applied.
Artificial light (in my mother’s kitchen, haha). I note that it’s not really different from the daylight view.
Here’s another vintage Chanel: Calypso. The colour is red brown with golden shimmer. I’ve still got lots of older Chanel nail varnishes I have not tried yet, and I will show them from time to time. 🙂
Two coats applied, natural light.
I was eager to try Pearl Jammin’, which seems to be unique in my stash. It’s dove grey (or blue-grey) with golden shimmer, the shimmer also being slightly iridescent.
As for the formula, I wasn’t sure, since I had read that Pearl Jammin’ is a bit on the sheer side. But I was happy with two coats.
One of my latest Dior nail varnishes is Cosmic – it’s actually brand new, being part of this year’s Christmas Collection. The colour is a dark eggplant/plum base with golden shimmer.
Application was two coats. I tried my best regarding capturing the shimmer, but it was too dark in the flat. Probably the macro view at the end of this post will give you an idea.
