Spring is hear, at least in the blog. Outside, the wheather changes between light snowfall and cold breezes, so it’s chilly in any case. Techno Bloom lights up the day. It’s a bright fuchsia and labeled “neon”.
Two coats applied. No top coat, since I like the matte finish. Photos were taken under artificial lighting.
This is Techno Bloom without a white base, but I will try this colour again, in order to bring out the neon effect.
Reloaded during the summer (inital post). Still loving this bright tangerine.
Two coats shown below with my mother’s little hothouse in the background. 🙂
Finally here’s Rose Néon. Since I could not get this at the Chanel Beauty Boutique because for some reason it hadn’t arrived, I ordered it online from Chanel. Neons are amazing and in summer I can’t get enough of them. Rose Néon combines pink with a hint of coral.
This is two coats over a white base. The finish is actually semi-matte, but I decided to use a top coat.
The ice cream is called “Freitagabend” and it’s caramel with popcorn and salted caramel chunks, which are really salty, hence absolutely yummy stuff.
Highlight Of My Summer. Amazing neon mint green – truly an unsual combo, which is why I like this so much. Moreover, it has been snowing again (note: It’s Holy Thursday and exactly one year ago we had 22 degrees celsius outside 🙄 ), so I need bright colours that at least remind of spring.
Two coats shown below. The neon is more on the pastel side but it’s really bright and flashy. Couldn’t stop looking at my nails and admiring it. 😉
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.
On my way to the subway – here you can probably see how bright this is. 🙂
Magnetic, the neon pink shade, is the only colour of the Chanel Neon Wave varnishes I have not yet shown. So here it comes.
Unfortunately, I have only photos under artificial light but will wear this again soon. It’s bright and flashy, truly textmarker pink. Three thin coats over white.
This is the only outside photo I have – but with a water I got from Chanel after being at their Alsterhaus counter. 😎 😉
Orange neon. This is incredibly flashy and so far my favourite of the Neon Waves.
Three thin coats over white, no top coat (but hand cream on the next day, thus the normally semi-matte finish seems a bit glossy).
So bright! Too this photo with Arthur Bear while chasing Pokémon and fighting at a Pokégym in Kellinghusenpark.
Indirect natural light.
I picked up Pink Pulse collection at out local Chanel Beauty Boutique yesterday – and hav eno idea when to start with those, as I am still into the Neons. Here is Electric, the blue shade of the Neon Waves.
Three coats over a white base (Essence No Hurries, No Worries), no top coat. The finish is semi-matte.
Monday marked the day of my first visit to Chanel Beauty Boutique at Mönckebergstraße, Hamburg’s major shopping areas. The boutique opened a year ago and I had not managed going there, since I usually purchase my nail varnishes at Alsterhaus or online. But regarding the Neon Wave collection, I felt I had to get them at the Boutique, not wanting to wait for any delivery (they are boutique-exclusive). Which I did not regret of course. The shop assistants were lovely and the boutique is beautiful. So Chanel, so handy when you live in Hamburg.
As a fan of greens, I will show you Fantastic first.
All of the Neon Wave colours are flashy, but it’s hard to capture their brightness when taking photos. This might give you an idea.
Shown below is three coats of Fantastic – with top coat, the finish is normally semi-matte, and I realised that I actually prefer wearing these without top coat (which you will see with the blue one, Electric, in a different post). What is more, for the next manicure I tried white base, to bringt out the neon effect.
Nevertheless Fantastic stands out against the grey clouds.
I’m trying to get an overview regarding my China Glaze stash. Like this brand so much. So I recognised Flirty Tankini and that I hadn’t shown this yet. Here it comes, neon coral (with a hint of pink).
Artificial light and the normal finish, which is semi-matte.
Here it is with a layer of top coat, which doesn’t really make a difference in the photos, I guess.
