Back in Hamburg, here is Nuit Blanche, the light sister polish of Nuit Noire. This one is rather sheer and hence more suited as an effect top coat, containing white and iridescent glassflecks.
Three coats shown below – it’s not really meant to be worn on its own, even though the flakies look quite dense in the bottle.
I haven’t got a special Easter manicure but decided for something colourful the days before Easter, Azur topped with Eclosion. I was really sick of cold wet (and icy) days and wanted something bright, to invite Spring.
But then it snowed the next day! This was taken after swimming, on my way home. Just notice the snow in the background. 😮
Nevertheless a close-up. Of the nails, not the snow of course. 😉
For the actual Easter days I decided on Glory, which is currently on my nails.
It’s spring finally! At least the sun has come out and it is definitely getting warmer, especially compared to yesterday when the sky was grey and it rained almost all day long. I was so – literally – sick of the cold and dark wheather. Hope these fine days will last. 🙂 At least I carry some sunshine on my nails, Sun’s Up Top Down is a beautiful bright yellow with shimmer finish.
The formula is a bit runny with slight pooling at the tips. But somehow I managed a more or less smooth application (with three thin coats).
UV Meant to Be is a bright blue.
To be honest, its formula is pretty runny … nevertheless, UV Meant to Be is a beautiful colour and making up for the hard times application had given me. Two coats over white, and since this was so hard to capture again, photos were taken using my mobile.
There is also a new, white “colour booster base coat” (that’s actualy its name) by Essence, which I tried with UV Meant to Be, and it really worked in terms of colour-intensifying. Moreover, no stains upon removal, which I expected.
I applied this some weeks ago; Wanderlust is a light pink with hints of pastel and lilac, containing a beautiful golden shimmer. This was so perfect for the summer.
Shown below is two coats.
Seems that China Glaze has taken over my nails recently but I just love this brand, and they have tons of great shades for the summer. Dashboard Diver is a light blue with a copper and pink shimmer. Awesome.
I used three thin coats.
Another China Glaze, Boho Blues. Periwinkle shades look so great but at the same time, they can be tricky to photograph.
I tried my best to capture the actual colour because this pretty shade deserves it. Two coats applied.
