Sir Loyal Heart. Another unique nail colour in my stash; its base shifts between bronze and brown, containing maroon and golden shimmer. And, of course (because it’s A England 🙂 ) it’s a scattered holo finish.
Shown below is two coats.
Merry Christmas everyone! 🙂 Hope you are all enjoying a wonderful Christmastime and wishing you happy holidays from the bottom of my heart. I’m at my mother’s place and a bit tired although it was a nice trip because there weren’t many people travelling. I guess most people preferred to stay at home today, spending time with their beloved ones.
At Lower Saxony, we have no snow and I admit I like the mild wheather. Tomorrow we are going to watch a DVD, King Arthur – Legend of the Sword. 😉 The swimming bath is closed, so I’ll go there again on Boxing Day.
As for The Most Happy, I had this on my nails a couple of days ago. It’s bright purple with holographic glitter and a scattered holo finish.
Shown below is to coats.
On to the next Tudoresque nail varnish. I thought Katherine of Aragon (Henry’s first wife)would make a beautiful colour for the last days before Christmas. It’s an antique gold shade with a hint of taupe and containing holographic glitter, resulting in a scattered holo finish.
Two coats applied. Again, one coat would have been fine too, with regards to opaqueness.
I actually have the next Tudoresque nail varnish to present, Anne of Cleves. This is a very feminine colour, light pink with golden glitter. Scattered holographic effect.
Application was two coats. I messed a bit with the index, which is not the nail polish but the top coat. Anne of Cleves, too, is opaque with one coat.
Daylight (but cloudy).
As I had mentioned before I was expecting A England’s Tudoresque nail varnishes and can tell you now that I am totally into this collection. Here’s the first one I applied, Catherine Howard (the fifth and youngest wife of Henry VIII). The colour is teal with a scattered holo effect and golden bits of glitter.
This is actually a one-coater, so dense and opaque. Only because I am used to it, I applied two coats.
I have a couple of new Essence nail varnishes to share with you; most of the photos were already taken during the summer holidays. I am generally a huge fan of the Essence brand because their cute designs, especially with regard to their “trend editions” are always a surprise.
Concerning their current nail polish range, they have a small holo glitter series – and I snatched Holo Maniac from my daughter. The turquoise glitter (and it’s more a glitter bomb) made me think of China Glaze Atlantis, but the latter is more greenish. Nevertheless removal of both Holo Maniac and Atlantis is a pain.
Two coats applied; as with most dense glitters, this one is a topcoat eater too.
