The bottle photo was taken when my mother was still among us, it’s the balcony of her former room at the nursing home. We had just come back from town and bought Holo Me Crazy. Silver purple with holographic glitter.
Two coats shown below. The surface dries a bit gritty, so I applied to layers of top coat.
It’s probably hard to recognise but I took the following photos outside and after my swimming routine, so it’s Alsterschwimmhalle background.
I was at Fantasy Filmfest White Nights during the weekend (of course; I’ve mentioned it before), with Deliciously Wicked on my nails. Horror film festivals seem a perfect opportunity for glitter nails because nobody would think it’s strange matching them with Metal band shirts (mine was Arch Enemy, on the first day). As always, I had Bäri Bäri with me.
But this is about Deliciously Wicked. It has a light blue base (pearl finish by the way, I’ve never had this before with glitter nail varnishes), which is semi-shee and contains silver holographic glitter. It’s just awesome.
Two coats applied and, yes, it’s from the Grinch collection.
I am happy to include a daylight picture: This is on day 3, the day after White Nights, the mani still looking great.
I totally fell for China Glaze’s Grinch Collection for Christmas, lots of sparkles, holographic glitter and really Grinch-related names. This is Merry Whatever – gold with holographic and golden glitter.
Two coats applied. Looks like tinsel on my nails. 😉
Daylight, which brings out the yellow proportion of the golden base.
Outside. You’ll notice that the glitter is really dense. Nevertheless, removing this was no pain.
Getting sparkly for the Season. Cosmic Lights was a birthday present, and I adore it. The steel-grey base is packed with silver holographic glitter, adding further sparkle to the foil finish.
It’s also super easy to apply, dries fast and not too gritty. Shown below is two coats with top coat.
Natural lighting, but photos taken inside.
Bridal Veil (shown before) was my pick for Fantasy Filmfest closing night. I thought this charcoal shade with holographic glitter particles would be perfect for the last day filled with great films.
Two coats applied. Unfortunately no direct sunlight but cloudy sky, so you don’t notice the shimmer.
Artificial light with brings out the sparkle.
So this was one nail colour I applied for Japan Filmfest Hamburg, which took place over the last weekend of May: Princess Sabra, already shown before.
I’m still fascinated by this golden and olive green scattered holo. We had tons of sunshine for almost two weeks, making the holographic effect even more visible. So sparkly and pretty!
Black teams up with holo glitter – that’s why I picked 1000 Light Years Away for last weekend, when I attended Fantasy Filmfest White Nights. I thought that this combo, which also reminds of a little galaxy on the nail, would suit fantastic and horror films. The glitter comes in various sizes.
Two coats applied. These photos were taken directly after I had applied top coat; in fact 1000 Light Years Away is a top coat eater …
Daylight. The polish stayed on my nails for three days, and I had no problems with either chipping or tip wear. (But don’t forget that I spent about twelve hours on Saturday and Sunday at the cinema, went straight to bed after coming home, and I caught up with my chores on Monday again.) Just opened crisp bags while watching the ten films, and stirred my hot chocolate.
Close-up. Note the hexagon-shaped glitter. 🙂
