Japan Filmfest Hamburg is approaching, only two days to go, and for the first time (mainly due to my general admission ticket), I’ll be joining the opening night with “Innocent Blood”. Really looking forward! 🙂
As for further preparation (actually just for fun), I have planned to finally visit Sakura manga shop tomorrow – let’s see what they have got. To be honest, it’s more my daughter who wanted to go there (I’m more of a film buff).
But let’s skip this and have a look at today’s nail varnish, which is Fresh Prince-ss. Baby pink, a bit like sakura maybe. 😉
Shown below is two coats. Flawless China Glaze quality as always.
So pretty, Sweet As Candy. It’s a light, milky pink in the tradition of neutral and nude shades, thus always looking good.
Application was two (thicker) coats; I am also a fan of the gel-like finish.
Hope your Christmas was wonderful1 Now let’s move on to the end of this year. I am still enjoying being in Lower Saxony. So peaceful and quiet here, swimming bath every day … although less Pokéstops than in Hamburg! 🙂
Rose Scabiosa. I’ve had this in my stash for ages. It’s light pink – no pastel – with a hint of lilac. Looks very feminine in the bottle but often these pinks clash with my skintone, which is probably why I had put Rose Scabiosa on hold.
Two coats shown below.
On Tuesday, I had an appointment at Alsterhaus with my favourite Chanel counter, since their Makeup artist Yannick Lemaire was back, and so he did my makeup, using products mainly from the current Collection Libre. I had Pink Rubber on my nails, which is part of the collection. Yannick re-created the look of the campaign, a strong eye with graphic effects – liked it so much and felt gorgeous.
As for Pink Rubber, this is a pale pink with a suède (“velvet”) finish.
Two coats applied.
I played Pokémon Go before taking the photos, and a Spearow turned up to take charge of the bottle, haha! 😉
Regatta is a pretty light pink with a hint of lilac and, in addition, pink and magenta shimmer. It’s not really pastel (thus flawless application) but more a baby pink shade.
Shown below is two coats.
Pale pink with shimmer; I admit I got this mainly for its name. But apart from this, Let Me Bayou A Drink is a pretty shade.
Three coats applied (it’s a bit pastel and thus tricky – but not too much – to build up).
Close up view.
Loved having Organdi on my nails; it’s a nude pink, very opaque and elegant-looking.
Shown below is two coats. In search of some sunlight, I went upstairs to the attic and took the photos. Different setting though. 😉
