[A England] Lancelot

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.

[Chanel] Rose Énergie (#600)

When Chanel Beauty Boutique sent me an e-mail about new nail varnishes having arrived, I grabbed them, of course, although I had no idea about the release of a “Pink Pulse” collection. Officially, Rose Énergie and its three fellow shades are due in September, but I am happy to present this cherry red shade today. It’s so worth to be waiting. 🙂

[Dior] Calypso (#158)

Calypso. I’ve neglected this for years and don’t know why. Maybe the mention of “Gloss” scared me away because I expected a jelly which would need at least four coats … The colour is red.

It’s indeed a bit sheer (but dries quickly). This ist three thin coats.

[Chanel] Pirate (#08), 2016 formula

Just uploaded new pictures and thought, why not posting Pirate? It’s one of my favourite reds and I love the crelly formula as well as its colour. Here is the new formulated Pirate.

Wheather is crazy by the way. It’s noon now and we’ve already had a super dark sky with thunderstorms, while the sun is shining at the moment, with temperatures expecting to rise up to 30 degrees celsius. 😎 We’ll see, I’m going out later.
