It’s definitely been a while. Last week, I started my new job, which is again completely different from what I did before (i. e. working in a bookshop), since I’m a lecturer for maths now. Like, finally. 🙂 Moreover, I’m still doing the proofreading as a freelancer for the law school. Things have changed so fast; I’m still grieving and will always be, but I am glad that there is at least a bit of stability regarding work.
I also got the phone call from Alsterhaus for the latest Chanel nail colours, and here is Mirage – a beautiful muted mauve.
Two coats applied.
Look what I found in my stash – in the meantime, Manhattan have changed their bottle design ages ago, and there are still nail varnishes in my collection I hadn’t applied yet. Purple Poetry has a purple base enriched with pink and blue glassflecks.
Two coats shown below under artificial lighting.
Although I’ve worn Purple Ray a couple of times so far, I could not manage to take proper photos during daylight. So I’ll be showing you the ones taken under artificial lighting, but bringing out the colour, which is a muted lilac and purple.
Application was two coats.
Yes, this was actually taken outside but I had to flee from a far too cloudy sky.
I’ve got new photos of Shadow … (here’s the initial post). Two coats and finally daylight.
Bin scenery in the background! 🙄

The bottle photo was taken when my mother was still among us, it’s the balcony of her former room at the nursing home. We had just come back from town and bought Holo Me Crazy. Silver purple with holographic glitter.
Two coats shown below. The surface dries a bit gritty, so I applied to layers of top coat.
It’s probably hard to recognise but I took the following photos outside and after my swimming routine, so it’s Alsterschwimmhalle background.
Well, another purple! 😉 Yesterday at Alsterhaus department store they stated that I seem to be into berry shades, so they’re probably right and that explains the many pinks and berries here … Today I’m presenting Diorcelestial, which is one of my latest additions. It’s got a purple base filled with glassflecks in pink, blue and silver.
And yes, the sparkles are visible on the nail. Two coats shown below. I like this colour so much that I got the matching lipstick. 🙂
It Wasn’t Me is almost vintage because it was released in 2015, and it’s only recently that I finally applied this purple glitter. It’s almost eggplant or at least a deep purple shade, which is packed with purple and blue glitter.
The finish is gritty; here are two coats without top coat, for this sandy effect. In spite of all that glitter removal was easy.
