[Chanel] Nuvola Rosa (#588)

Nuvola Rosa is a light pink, very feminine and girly in my opinion. Totally spring colour – although it’s still frosty outside.


Application was two coats.

Chanel is launching nail vanish like crazy at the moment. I’m happy about each new colour and there are quite a few stunners, but it also means that there will be lots of swatches to do. 🙂 I’ll be purchasing Aurore later and then heading for tea at HafenCity, Meßmer Momentum. White tea coconut & chocolates is my favourite flavour.

[A England] Anne of Cleves

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.

[China Glaze] Fresh Prince-ss

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. 😉

[Yves Saint Laurent] Rose Scabiosa (#48)

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.

[Chanel] Pink Rubber (#542)

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.

I played Pokémon Go before taking the photos, and a Spearow turned up to take charge of the bottle, haha! 😉
