[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.

[China Glaze] Strap On Your Moonboots

Hit or miss, that’s probably what it is about holographic shades, or even more, textures. Strap On Your Moonboots has a night blue base and it is slightly iridescent.

Two coats, no top coat (most of them would dull the holographic effect, nevertheless, I made a couple good experiences with the Dior quick dry top coat).

[Chanel] Fracas

Guess what I’ve been up to – transferring loads of photos after finally founding my USB cable, as well as browsing tons of swatch pics. Here is one of my favourite pinks for the summer, Fracas, which has a slight blue and magenta shimmer.

Bottle shimmer (since I could not manage a closeup view of the actual manicure).

Two coats. This is just stunning. Gorgeous!
