Here is this beautiful red again (initial post). I actually wore it twice during the past two weeks; Vodka & Caviar is one of my favourite OPI reds.
Two coats shown below.
It’s still February and Chanel has already released so many beautiful nail colours. This one is Violet Piquant, which also contains a hint of indigo.
Two coats shown below. On the nails, the finish is jelly-ish and glossy.
Sophisticated (which is, although part of this year’s autumn collection, not available in Europe, as far as I know) is a cherry red with “crelly” finish, hence crème and jelly hybrid.
I applied two coats.
This is the colour I am currently wearing, Orange Fusion. It’s more blood orange, containing a certain proportion of red. But jelly finish and a bit sheer. I also got a cardigan of the same shade. 🙂
Because I like it more opaque, this is three coats. Overall, Orange Fusion is bright and glossy.
Blue-Ya surprised me. It’s got a blue jelly-ish base containing blue and green glitter bits. And of course I thought it would be rather sheer – but it isn’t. It turned out to be almost opaque after the first coat. And the shimmer … Stunning!
Two coats applied. Artificial light (bringing out the blue glassflecks).
In daylight, hints of green are clearly visible. Most of the time, however, Blue-Ya presents its blue side.
I’ve got the Essence advent calendar for this year, which is packed with beauty items. So this is where I got Do You Speak Love from, classic cherry red with jelly finish.
Despite being a jelly, it’s opaque with two coats – shown below under artificial light.
Still featuring Chanel’s nail colours for Christmas, here is Hyperrose Glass. This is both on the jelly-ish and sheer side and can be used as top coat too, to add some shimmer and pink.
Application was three coats of Hyperrose Glass on its own. Natural light:
