[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. 😎 😉



[Dior] Plaza (#579)

Plaza. This is one of those polishes of my stash I’ve had for years but didn’t realise I never wore them. So when I checked my swatches with my actual nail varnish list, I came across Plaza, which is a beautiful pink.


Honestly, I can’t tell why I had never applied this. Shown below is two coats, really bright shade.






[China Glaze] Fresh Prince-ss

Japan Filmfest Hamburg is approaching, only two days to go, and for the first time (mainly due to my general admission ticket), I’ll be joining the opening night with “Innocent Blood”. Really looking forward! 🙂

As for further preparation (actually just for fun), I have planned to finally visit Sakura manga shop tomorrow – let’s see what they have got. To be honest, it’s more my daughter who wanted to go there (I’m more of a film buff).

But let’s skip this and have a look at today’s nail varnish, which is Fresh Prince-ss. Baby pink, a bit like sakura maybe. 😉

[Dior] Tease (#550)

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 :mrgreen: ), 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.
