[Essence] You’re My Flavourite

Essence has launched a cute collection, actually it’s even kawaii (hence “Happy Kawaii”). The nail polishes come in little bottles, which remind of ice cream cones. Today I’m showing you You’re My Flavourite, mint green with shimmer.

[Dior] Dior Glitz [#538]

I haven’t shown a Dior colour for quite a while. So here is one of my latest additions, which is currently available, Dior Glitz.It’s orange with a bit of coral and lots of glassflecks, particularly golden and orange ones.

[Chanel] Morocco (#37)

Well, hello! The past week was full of maths and I spent the weekend at my mothers and enjoyed “Frühjahrsmarkt” (kind of a fair), which was fun too. Although shops were open on Sunday and it was family day too, the small town in Lower Saxony wasn’t really crowded, nothing compared to Hamburg on a regular Saturday. :mrgreen: I am so happy that it’s finally spring – we had like 24 degrees celsius on Sunday – and so needed it for my mood. I’m definitely made for hot temperatures.

Which you would find in Morocco. The Chanel nail polish of the same name is brown with a silver shimmer, also containing hints of bronze. I don’t know how old it is, but it is certainly a vintage colour.


Application was two coats.

No Snow Petrol Again

Snow is melting and the sun is coming out – we might probably have witnessed the beginning of spring. Which would be lovely because I am planning to see my mother from Wednesday onwards for at least one week. Stll feeling a bit poorly I hope that I can go swimming again soon.

No Snow Petrol is one of my favourite Catrice nail varnishes. It’s not new in the blog, I had posted it before and thing I haven’t worn it since then. But this petrol base with its fine pink glassflecks deserves more than a second round. Application is still flawless after all these years; two coats shown below.





Artificial light. Very recently I noticed that Catrice changed their bottle design – obviously more than one in the past few years. 😉

[Chanel] Coco Blue (#551)

Coco Blue is not new at all but this fresh light blue with its subtle shimmer goes so well with – spring (if it had already arrived). Thus it is still one of my favourite blue nal colours. This is the relaunch of Spring 2012 and I’ve shown the Vogue Fashion’s Night Out version of 2011 before: Coco Blue.

[Chanel] India (#137)

Not yet the latest collection but a vintage gem. India has a rosewood base with a hint of pink and also contains silver microglitter bits, which are already prominent in the bottle picture.


Application was two coats and I am happy to present this colour in direct sunlight. 😎
