[China Glaze] Highlight Of My Summer

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. 😉

[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.

On my way to the subway – here you can probably see how bright this is. 🙂

[Chanel] Magnetic

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. 😎 😉

[Chanel] Ultrasonic

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.

[Chanel] Fantastic (Neon Wave)

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.

[China Glaze] Flirty Tankini

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.
