December already and I just recognised that snow is back at WordPress! Let’s combine this with Winter, which I own since 2013 but have not applied before because I am not really into almost sheer shades, even when they contain golden and silver shimmer in a tinted white base. I don’t remember if Winter was meant to be a top coat? Nevertheless, here we go.
Three coats of Winter on its own.
Liquid Mirror. I like grey and silver on my nails, at least from time to time; moreover, silver is rare in collections, regarding nail colour. Liquid Mirror is a silver foil, flashy yet elegant.
Two coats shown below.
This is how Liquid Mirror relates to other silver shades: Silver, Intemporel, Liquid Mirror and Miroir.
Waltz Of the Flowers (which I thought I had shown before). This is a pretty lilac holographic shade, also slightly iridescent.
Don’t get mistaken by the photos – we are in the middle of a heatwave now, which I had wished for when I actually took the pictures about a week ago. Two coats shown below.
We are finally in Lower Saxony at my mother’s place, and I am enjoying the garden view. Did you know that I was collecting high-end perfumes initially? (Guess I have not mentioned before.) That is, I have been collecting ballpens since school and am still after them. As for perfume, it all started with duty-free Chanel and then simply evolved. I had quite a collection which I also used (same as I’m applying my nail varnishes), but when I got pregnant I could not stand most scents any more, and that was when I either gave them away or also threw them away (what an idiot, I know) – and kept a few bottles. I should actually just have given them to my mother, which would have been a wiser choice.
I remembered my passion for perfume because I received a sample of Jil Sander Sun about two weeks ago, and this had been my favourite for the summer for a long time. Still loving it to bits. So much for this. 🙂
Kalinka – I realised that this was still in my drafts. The colour is silver-based with a hint of lilac and holographic glitter. Stunning!
Application was two coats and this first photo taken outside doesn’t do Kalinka justice.
Back in our flat. I like this colour; the lilac is definitely visible but still Kalinka matches most colours. I combined it with a floral dress, when we went to a little garden party last Saturday.
Hope you are enjoying the sunny wheather as much as I do! I love being outside now, preferably in my mother’s garden. For this weekend I picked Encore Margot, which is a holographic silver shade – a stunner!
Two coats shown below and nothing else to say when looking at how it sparkles in direct sunlight. 🙂 I thought I had posted this before but it seems that I really saved it for a wonderful warm day.
My daughter put this on her nails yesterday (she’s doing her nails on her own now 🙂 ) and I thought I could post this – with my own nails. Chrome Paradise combines dark green, grey/silver and purple shades with an iridescent shimmer finish. Quite complex and pretty.
Two coats applied.
So here is Precious, the sister polish of Lovely of this year’s Diorsnow collection (which is Asia exclusive). The colour is taupe combined with silver in a semi-sheer base. It’s sparkling too and has a shimmer finish.
Shown below is two coats. I have worn precious twice now, not because I like this shade so much but to find out what to think about it. It’s not a favourite, I have to admit – maybe I’ll try it again when it gets really sunny outside. It looks pretty in the bottle but a bit boring on my nails, although it goes well with my skin tone. And Precious is in fact unique in my stash.
