Androgyne is a smoky eggplant shade with a hidden green shimmer (which is more present in the bottle – although not really in the photo shown below ) than on the nails). So elegant.
Application was two coats.
One of my latest Dior nail varnishes is Cosmic – it’s actually brand new, being part of this year’s Christmas Collection. The colour is a dark eggplant/plum base with golden shimmer.
Application was two coats. I tried my best regarding capturing the shimmer, but it was too dark in the flat. Probably the macro view at the end of this post will give you an idea.
Première, a slightly muted plum shade. I actually wanted to show this yesterday, but had some issues with uploading photos … so here it is now.
Two coats applied. Photos were a bit tricky to take because there wasn’t so much light in the flat, but it wasn’t really better outside, because of grey clouds. I tried my best and when the sun finally came out, I grabbed Première again from my stash (which is in a built-in cupboard) like a maniac; so much for the last photo. 😉 However, in the first picture, the colour comes close to how it actually looks like.
Direct sunlight, yay! 😎
This too was kept in my stash for, well, years! You Ottaware Purple dates back to 2004 (Canadian collection, as implied by the name) the and so I guess that that was the age of shimmer finishes, which adds to the purple base of You Ottaware Purple.
As for the formula, it’s rather sheer. I applied three thin coats. This colour somehow takes me back in time. 😉
Châtaigne. Dark chestnut brown with a slight proportion of eggplant/plum, just enough to be visible.
Brilliant glossy finish, by the way. I only added top coat to achieve a dry surface more quickly, but it is not really necessary for Châtaigne. Shown below is two coats.
Indirect light (that’s why I am posting so many photos).
