[Chanel] Scenario (#604)

A current favourite, with special regard to Christmas. I fancy reds and I fancy neons; Scenario combines both.

Two coats applied. The finish is actually matte but photos were taken with top coat.

[ManGlaze] Nawsome Sauce

Hello! I’ve stayed in Hamburg over the weekend but took some time off the Internet and the more I have to catch up with now when it comes to work and organising stuff. Nevertheless I had a wonderful weekend.

Here is another green, an older one: Nawsome Sauce by ManGlaze.

Two coats shown below without top coat. And, yes, even though it looks glossy, it’s actually matte (but with shimmer).

[Essence] Relax Rosy

Due to a severe storm in the North of Germany we were advised to stay home, for safety reasons. So I swatched some nail varnishes and watched Guardians of the Galaxy on DVD. This one is another matte. Relax Rosy is pink with a hint of rosewood.

[Manhattan] Midnight Sparkle

I guess you won’t be surprised to hear that I have a ton of nail varnishes in my stash which I have not worn, nor swatched yet. There are many pretty colours among them, such as Midnight Sparkle. This is denim blue with small silver and blue glassflecks.

Moreover, but it does not say so on the bottle, it dries semi-matte. Shown below is two coats.

Matte Is Murder

Last matte nail colour I am showing for the time being – you have my word. 😉 I’ve posted Matte is Murder before, back in 2011, and wore it again during Fantasy Filmfest. Because black and horror movies are a good match, and matte black with glitter is even better. Two coats applied, no top coat.

[Dior] Jungle Matte (#614)

I’m back from Fantasy Filmfest (although I was in Hamburg all the time, of course, but spending time at the movies for almost 12 hours a day is somewhat different …) and, being super crazy about this horror and independent stuff, saw all of the 54 films. 😉

Right now I am wearing Jungle Matte on my nails, which is a brand new Dior. So they ae doing mattes now and kind of re-invented this finish with a formula that is super easy to apply and dries quickly. No gritty surface – just pure matte. Jungle Matte is a nude beige (or light brown) colour.
