Jade Impérial again

New photos of this since the old ones, taken about five years ago, were a bit too dark. Two coats applied.

These were taken during summer holidays before my favourite swimming bath in Hamburg, Alsterschwimmhalle (website in German).

Sprung (OPI) Again

I am currently wearing Sprung and since it’s been a while since my last OPI post (I haven’t bought nail colour of this brand recently) I thought I could share this with you – although there is a already a blog entry. Nevertheless, I think that with its copper foil finish Sprung is made for this season. Hard to believe that it was actually released for Spring, isn’t it? 🙂

This is two coats.

Altough I am definitely no fan of winter or cold wheather, I am beginning to adapt to it. I still cannot say that I like being outside during rain or snow – but I go swimming regularly (I always loved swimming) and swim long distances, and I guess it helps coping with any season. I don’t feel that uncomfortable during winter anymore. Normally wintertime was equal to permanently suffering from a cold. 😉 But regardless of the wheater, I make my way to the swimming bath and realised that it’s probably only a matter of the right clothes. We’ll see!

[China Glaze] Tart-y for the Party

Here is what is on my nails today; Tart-y for the Party is a bright lilac. I’ve had this for ages, but without even swatching it, and when I saw a girl lately with a similar shade on her nails (probably Essie), I digged this up from my stash.


Photos were taken only about two hours ago – and notice the flower wallpaper: This is my old room at my parents’ house, now used by my daughter when we are there. Things change – or not, since I am glad she likes the wallpaper! :mrgreen:

[China Glaze] Sunday Funday

So here we have another China Glaze, Sunday Funday. I really love this, it’s an awesome bright blue.


Applied on the nails, however, I found this shade hard to capture with the camera, so the bottle was replaced by Bäri Bäri.


Some more photos. There are mini sizes available of Hipp baby cream, always showing a baby animal with a scarf. They are limited editions and I got them all (however, they aren’t that many yet). 🙂


Photos were taken last summer, you might recognise my longer nails.


[Chanel] Charivari

I guess that I’m rarely posting shades from current collection. I don’t know why, but probably because they are shown on so many blogs much more popular than mine and with better photos 😉 , and not least, I love presenting older varnishes. Charivari, however, is one of Chanel’s current shades for spring, a dark dusty purple.


When I tried it first, I wasn’t that fond of it because it seemed a bit too dark and I would have loved the dusty elements showing up more dominantly, but under direct light, Charivari is a real beauty and pretty interesting. It’s probably also due to the lack of daylight that I had to get used to this colour. Shown below is two coats.
