Realising that I haven’t added new colours to my A England stash for quite some time, I placed a small order and picked some varnishes of recent collections. So today I’m presenting If the Ravens Leave the Tower, which is a blue-ish petrol with a scattered holographic finish.
Happy to have new A England polishes again! Shown below is two coats.
I couldn’t decide which photos to pick, so here is a picture overload. These were taken with artificial lighting.
Hamburg was hit by heavy storms today – trains (and flights) were cancelled, and some underground and bus timetables are disrupted too. It has been raining all day. I’m glad that we went to Nienburg last weekend but hope that the graves will be fine (I might ask my friend or neighbours over there to check, once the weather clears up again). As for tomorrow, I expect the metro to be crowded … hope I’ll make it to my workplace safely and on time. It’s a wonderful job by the way, with great colleagues.
I finally put on legendary Holographic from the Duo Platinum Set – holographic silver, there’s probably no more to say -, which I bought ages ago from Valerie, a fellow Mensan and Chanel collector, but without realising at first that is was her (I just found the name familiar 😉 ). Here it is.
Two coats shown below, no top coat. I also forgot about the aqua basecoat and used a regular base. Still the holographic effect is more than stunning!
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.
Another set of photos which I took during the summer, in August, when I spent a couple of weeks at my mother’s. Hence you’ll notice the small hothouse in the background, as well as the garden in full bloom.
I’ve shown Dancing with Nureyev before, and it is still one of my favourite holos and A England colours. Two coats applied.
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!
March already – and Hamburg is still covered with snow. At least the sun is shining today and I will be going out, if only for shopping because I am still recovering from the flu but getting better every day.
Sunshine is normally ideal for holographic nail varnishes but it’s been a while since I had applied Anne Boleyn and taken the photos. This has a dark red base with a scattered holographic finish.
Two coats shown below. Beautiful …
Natural light. Unfortunaly, photos were still taken in the flat so that the daylight doesn’t bring out the holo much more.
