I’m trying to get an overview regarding my China Glaze stash. Like this brand so much. So I recognised Flirty Tankini and that I hadn’t shown this yet. Here it comes, neon coral (with a hint of pink).
Artificial light and the normal finish, which is semi-matte.
Here it is with a layer of top coat, which doesn’t really make a difference in the photos, I guess.
This is so beautiful! Although I am into the Arthurian legend, I had neglected Avalon for quite a while. That is, I didn’t even own it until last month. 😉 This amazing purple with pink and blue shimmer captured me instantly.
Two coats applied. It’s especially stunning when being looked at in direct sunlight.
Ignore the index finger – this was my second try because I somehow got a small dent shortly after the first application. So I removed the colour of the index and seemed to have forgotten to apply a second layer, which I only noticed when taking the photos. 😮
Artificial light. Here’s the small bump at the tip of the index, indicating that this was my first try … (I actually should have left it like this, I now know. But I am so perfectionist).
I have neither worn nor shown purple for a while. It’s rather berry and coral season now, since summer has arrived, so I had nearly forgotten how classy purple can be. Pitter Patter had patiently waited for its turn, so here is this eggplant purple with shimmer.
Two coats applied.

Gosh, the name! Check out Wikepedia or some urban dictionary, if you haven’t heard of “santorum” before, it only sounds like a monastic order 🙄 … As for this nail varnish, the colour is dark brown with shimmer, due to silver microglitter. Super matte finish too.
Application was two coats. Artificial light:
Natural light on the next day; I had applied hand cream and did some household chores, that’s why the finish looks more glossy in these pics.
So I presented No Hurries, No Worries (aka one of the most opaque nail varnishes 😎 ) yesterday, and here it is topped with Reflects. Reflects is meant as a top coat and packed with golden glassflecks in a sheer base.
One coat of Reflects over my (two-coat) No Hurries, No Worries mani to achieve a slightly golden shimmer.

First entry for this month – Japan Filmfest Hamburg ended last Sunday and – as always – I had a wonderful time. It’s a bit like going on a study or even school trip, only with sleeping at home. But with being at the cinema around noon and finishing past 1 am (that’s five to six films a day), it feels like that. 🙂
Inframétal would have been a good pick regarding the (mainly) horror-themed films I saw. It’s charcoal metallic with shimmer.
Two coats shown below.
This is Coquillage. Apricot with golden shimmer (which you should not expect to show up on the nail because it doesn’t, otherwise it would be really cool 😎 ).
Application was two coats. I am pretty tanned now (on Thursday, they’ll open the outdoor leisure pool again 🙂 ) and was surprised how good Coquillage looked in combination with my bronze skin.
