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. 😎
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.
One of my latest Chanel nail varnishes and the first spring nail varnish of 2017 I’m showing here. Blanc White is a sheer to semi-sheer ebony shade.
Three coats shown below for a rather opaque look.
Ivoire (which has been re-named to Muguet) is a semi-sheer nude shade, combining beige and rose.
Since this is really transparent, I used three coats – still without achieving opaqueness.
Loved having Organdi on my nails; it’s a nude pink, very opaque and elegant-looking.
Shown below is two coats. In search of some sunlight, I went upstairs to the attic and took the photos. Different setting though. 😉
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.
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.
Close-up photo (but I was unable to capture the shimmer).
