I’m still at my mother’s house, not wearing any new colours for the time being. But there are some Chanel varnishes waiting at home. 🙂 As for this posting, I tried My Sweet Escape some weeks ago and it’s actually a thermo nail polish, changing its colour from beige to rose/peach. Hence it’s more a neutral shade.
I tried my best to capture both colours but the cold version (= beige) wouldn’t really show up. Two coats applied, artificial light.
Natural light. This is for sure the warm version.
Moving on to the next Chanel; this is Sea Whip. Described as “milky pink”, it’s rather peach, probably with a hint of pink.
Two coats applied.
So I spent last weekend at Fantasy Filmfest Nights, the smaller film festival which starts my usual festival year. Ten films in two days, and this year, they were especially good (last year, they presented too much mainstream stuff and thus a sold-out theatre), lots of sick themes, creepy stuff but also fun.
Yesterday was some kind of recreation day, catching up with tons of laundry, organising the week and so on (at the swimming pool, I was just like in the water, not actually swimming ), so that I can show the next nail polish today. 🙂
Hence on to Tease, which is peach with a proportion of pink. Not really something for a horror film festival (I should have mentioned that I’ll be at the cinema again tomorrow, to watch a special screening of Battle Royale, totally addicted, haha) but classy and timeless. It’s been a while since I took the photos.
Two coats applied.
Tulle (#568) is one of my latest Chanel additions. It’s a peach shade.
Surprisingly looking good on my nails, with special regard to my skintone. This is two coats and natural sunlight.
It’s nice, I guess. Peach with a hint of coral, and I like the name too.
This is to coats, and I realise that this colour is wonderful for spring.
Artificial light (here it looks more orange-y).
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.
Today we had a really sunny Sunday, and since it was probably the last opportunity to wear a shimmer finish in bright sunlight, I pulled out Spring Ball, which I’ve had for more than three years. This is a peach base with a slight hint of coral, packed with glassflecks.
Two coats shown below.
