On Her Majesty’s Secret Service

Another reloaded shade. It’s almost been two weeks since Fantasy Filmfest, and looking back I remember On Her Majesty’s Secret Service which I had applied. (You’ll find the initial post here.) Shown below is two coats.

Reloaded: The Spy Who Loved Me

Fantasy Filmfest starts next Thursday, hence I’m sorting out nail colours for my personal event of the year. I’m still loving the James Bond collection by OPI, which was released for Christmas 2012. Here are more recent photos of The Spy Who Loved Me (initial posting here).

The colour is tomato red with glassflecks.

[Butter London] Fiddlesticks

Here is another mani I had applied shortly before Christmas (which at present seems ages ago 😯 ), Fiddlesticks. I had worn this raspberry/magenta pink with sparkling glitter particles a couple of months before, at the beginning of last year or so, and I liked it – but the weather was not good enough to take photos, as lighting in the flat was somewhat bad. So here is Fiddlesticks.

I have no clue how the name relates to the name of this colour – but it is pretty. 🙂 When applying Fiddlesticks, I had a little scratch on my ring finger, thus the plaster.

[Essence] Let It Snow (Top Coat)

My favourite top coat for this season, imitating snowfalls. It’s packed with big white bits and smaller glitter particles in a transparent base. My daughter got Let It Snow for me, and so far, I’ve tried it over a couple of varnishes.

My first pick was Pillow Fight (Ciaté), a grey shade with a tad of lilac/mauve.

Here is Let It Snow combined with another Essence, Goofy Blue (Snow Jam Collection of last winter). Goofy Blue has a shimmer of its own and contains flakies, so at first I thought it might be too much topping it with Let it Snow … but in the end, this is my favourite combo.

Here it is over Essence Always On My Mint, a pastel mint shade with a slight shimmer. I liked this too, that’s probably the reason why I took so many photos!
