I’m enjoying the time at my mother’s. We (i.e. my daughter and me) go swimming every day, and yesterday we watched Star Trek VIII: First Contact on DVD. My mother has got the largest TV screen! 😉
I know I had posted Grenat before, but since it was my chosen nail colour for Christmas, here are some more, maybe even better, photos. Two coats applied.
A current favourite, with special regard to Christmas. I fancy reds and I fancy neons; Scenario combines both.
Two coats applied. The finish is actually matte but photos were taken with top coat.
On my way to the subway – here you can probably see how bright this is. 🙂
Seems that I saved the best for last, regarding Dior’s Precious Rocks nail polishes. Here’s Grenat – red with a hint of berry.
Two coats shown below. Again please excuse the bad lighting.
“Natural” light, haha … rather meaning: cloudy skies in the morning. But Grenat really stands out. 🙂
Ruby is indeed ruby red, coming with a shimmer finish.
Two coats applied. Artificial light – I am genuinely sorry for these rather bad pictures. Inside (at my mother’s) it was too dark and outside wasn’t better because it had been raining almost all the time with the usual dark clouds.
Maybe the photos aren’t that bad …
This is outside and with a tiny raindrop on the bottle. Tried so hard. I might wear Ruby again because it’s also a pretty shade for Christmas.
New photos of Chanel Dragon – still one of my favourite classic reds. Application was two coats.
Lancelot was perfect for the final day of Fantasy Filmfest. Amazing blackened cherry red, which I could not wait to try.
Two coats shown below. It’s hard to see that this is actually a very, very deep red. But it is, although the proportion of black is really high.
Sophisticated (which is, although part of this year’s autumn collection, not available in Europe, as far as I know) is a cherry red with “crelly” finish, hence crème and jelly hybrid.
I applied two coats.
