[OPI] Barefoot In Barcelona

I’ve been at my mother’s place for a week now and enjoying it so much. Didn’t tell you that Hamburg has early Easter holidays – so we are taking some time off in Lower Saxony, starting our days with swimming. I swam two kilometres each day except Sunday and it’s so great.

Once I’m back in Hamburg, there will be new Chanels to show. I noticed that I have not posted a nude shade – and an OPI nail varnish – for a while, so here is Barefoot in Barcelona. It’s beige with a proportion of rosewood. Lovely!

Two coats shown below and another premiere for this year: The weather is getting better (i. e. warmer) and thus I am taking photos outside again. 😎

[Chanel] Beige Beige (#556)

One of those shades that look nicer in the bottle than on my nails. Beige Beige is indeed beige (with a hint of peach).

Combined with my skin tone … you barely notice that I’m wearing nail polish at all. That’s why I only swatched it because I had opted for some colour on my nails. But nevertheless I think that Beige Beige is somewhat of an elegant shade. Application was two coats.

[Dior] Lovely (157)

Lovely is my latest Dior nail varnish. Its base colour is rose and beige, and in addition it has a golden shimmer. So, indeed, it’s a lovely shade, however, as part of this year’s Diorsnow collection, available in Asia only (I got mine from Hong Kong).

The formula is a bit sheer although it looks nice with a slight visible nail line. Since I like it more opaque, I applied three thin coats.

[Chanel] Bikini Rose (125)

For the past three days, I had Bikini Rose on my nails. I like those neutrals from time to time, imagining they make my nails look fresh and glowing, somehow. 😉 Bikini Rose has a rosy base that is packed with suble pink shimmer.

Bikini Rose is a bit sheer, so three thin coats applied. Because of my skin tone, it doesn’t look too pale on me and I really liked it. The pink shimmer is amazing.
