[China Glaze] Deliciously Wicked

I was at Fantasy Filmfest White Nights during the weekend (of course; I’ve mentioned it before), with Deliciously Wicked on my nails. Horror film festivals seem a perfect opportunity for glitter nails because nobody would think it’s strange matching them with Metal band shirts (mine was Arch Enemy, on the first day). As always, I had Bäri Bäri with me.

But this is about Deliciously Wicked. It has a light blue base (pearl finish by the way, I’ve never had this before with glitter nail varnishes), which is semi-shee and contains silver holographic glitter. It’s just awesome.

Two coats applied and, yes, it’s from the Grinch collection.

I am happy to include a daylight picture: This is on day 3, the day after White Nights, the mani still looking great.

[Essence] Cosmic Lights

Getting sparkly for the Season. Cosmic Lights was a birthday present, and I adore it. The steel-grey base is packed with silver holographic glitter, adding further sparkle to the foil finish.

It’s also super easy to apply, dries fast and not too gritty. Shown below is two coats with top coat.

Natural lighting, but photos taken inside.

[Dior] Lucky Star (#001)

First things first: Happy Halloween!

But apart from this, I also have a nail polish to show or, to be more precise, a top coat. Lucky Star contains glitter of various shapes (bars, round glitter and even stars, in gold and silver) and sizes in a transparent base.

Here it is dabbed over my Audace manicure, and I only applied it to the bottom part of my nails.

As for the little Halloween scenery, it might get even scarier. 😉 No nail colours but tons of treats in the bag!

[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.

[Essence] 1000 Light Years Away

Black teams up with holo glitter – that’s why I picked 1000 Light Years Away for last weekend, when I attended Fantasy Filmfest White Nights. I thought that this combo, which also reminds of a little galaxy on the nail, would suit fantastic and horror films. The glitter comes in various sizes.

Two coats applied. These photos were taken directly after I had applied top coat; in fact 1000 Light Years Away is a top coat eater …

Daylight. The polish stayed on my nails for three days, and I had no problems with either chipping or tip wear. (But don’t forget that I spent about twelve hours on Saturday and Sunday at the cinema, went straight to bed after coming home, and I caught up with my chores on Monday again.) Just opened crisp bags while watching the ten films, and stirred my hot chocolate. :mrgreen:

[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. 😎

[Essence] Pour Some Glitter On Me

With Christmas approaching, I’m definitely in the mood for glitter and bling (apart from Christmas sweaters 😉 ). Pour Some Glitter On Me is packed with hexagon-shaped golden and silver glitter chunks, and it is even more special because it dries matte. That’s really something, isn’t it? 😉

I didn’t fish for the glitter and “poured” one coat on Chanel Fiction. You might notice the matte effect.
