Can you imagine it’s freezing out there again? On Friday (when we were still in Lower Saxony) it was even snowing but being in a nicely heated swimming bath watching the snow can be a bliss. 🙂 So I’m back to swimming again and it is great.
Here’s a foil; I’ve been storing Carly for ages and finally applied it. Even though I might associate foil finishes with winter, this was actually released as part of a summer collection. Purple base and the glitter comes in silver and red particles.
Two coats applied.
Some photos under natural light.
It’s still February and Chanel has already released so many beautiful nail colours. This one is Violet Piquant, which also contains a hint of indigo.
Two coats shown below. On the nails, the finish is jelly-ish and glossy.
Here we have a beautiful OPI nail varnish I have posted before, Boris & Natasha. Plum with crème finish. I felt like applying this again recently.
It’s Ultra Violet – again, because I’ve learnt that ultra violet is the Pantone colour of the year, which brought me to remember this beautiful Dior nail polish. Wish the sky hadn’t been so cloudy when I was taking the photos.
Merry Christmas everyone! 🙂 Hope you are all enjoying a wonderful Christmastime and wishing you happy holidays from the bottom of my heart. I’m at my mother’s place and a bit tired although it was a nice trip because there weren’t many people travelling. I guess most people preferred to stay at home today, spending time with their beloved ones.
At Lower Saxony, we have no snow and I admit I like the mild wheather. Tomorrow we are going to watch a DVD, King Arthur – Legend of the Sword. 😉 The swimming bath is closed, so I’ll go there again on Boxing Day.
As for The Most Happy, I had this on my nails a couple of days ago. It’s bright purple with holographic glitter and a scattered holo finish.
Shown below is to coats.
I’ve got better (at least I think they are) photos of Amethyst. 🙂 Two coats.
Articifial light. It’s really an elegant plum shade.
Can’t believe that Christmas will be in less than one week. 😯 I have the feeling that time flies by …
Elfin Whispers was a wonderful birthday present I got from my daughter last Sunday (hence on my actual birthday). It’s currently available at drugstores which have Essence cosmetics and I would have bought it anyway because I was curious when hearing about “melted chrome”. Elfin Whispers is purple and has a metallic finish.
Application is good but you have to be quick; this can get stripy. Without topcoat the finish is more semi-matte or satin. Adding topcoat, the finish becomes glossy – but not shiny as in “mirror-like”. Nevertheless, it’s a pretty colour and formula. This is two coats, by the way.
