[Ciaté] Iced Frappé

Iced Frappé is a light, almost pastel mauve with hints of grey and nude. Thus a perfect neutral, but not nude, colour, great for every occasion.

I’ve got the mini version (from last year’s Ciaté advent calendar) and applied two coats.

[Chanel] May

What I like about May? Everything. It is one of my favourite pink nail varnishes, coming from the lighter side of pinks.

I realised that I applied May only a couple weeks ago although I definitely fell in love with this shade immediately at its release in January 2012. Two coats, I guess.

[Nubar] Lemon

Bright lemon yellow. 🙂

It’s been a year since I did my nails with Lemon, I applied it for my husband’s birthday party back in May 2012, so photos show the actual mani.

[OPI] Get Your Number

I’ve become a huge fan of the Mariah Carey Collection, not only for its variety of beautiful shades in general but also because of the liquid sand varnishes, of course! Such an interesting finish. Here is Get Your Number, a turquoise base packed with glitter in various sizes.

Two coats; I’ve been wearing this for almost three days and did not experience any chipping or tipwear. 🙂

[China Glaze] Aquadelic

A couple of hours ago, I painted my nails with Aquadelic, a beautiful bright turquoise, which I had already mentioned when presenting Where’s My Chauffeur? by Essie, since both shades are quite similar (see bottle comparison at the Essie link, at the end of the page).

Two coats. This is my pick for Shrove Monday (although we are not celebrating Mardi Gras).
