[Essence] Mrs. Brightside

We’re having the best sunny weather today, loving it! 😎 I already went swimming (the outdoor pools are open now) and sadly we’ll be going back to Hamburg later during the afternoon. But I am going to collect new Chanel nail colours from the Beauty Boutique tomorrow, so it’s worth the ride back.

Here’s a nail colour perfect for hot summer days, Mrs. Brightside. Bright, flashy yellow – just what you might expect regarding the name.

[Essence] Everybody Say Yeah

I actually wanted to wear this for Easter because the slightly pastel mint green would have matchedsome festive days. A few days later, Everybody Say Yeah made it to my nails.

Shown below is two coats. I’m still excited about the new (even better) Essence formula: three days without chipping or tipwear, probably longer, but I usually try to change colous every two or three days. I’m getting used to the new bottle shape too.

[Dior] Lucky Dior (#539)

Here we go again – April has been the busiest month so far, with Fantasy Filmfest Nights and (German) Mensa Annual Gathering but I had lots of fun and met the sweetest people. Before it’s time for Japan-Filmfest Hamburg (but only during the second half of May), I’ll show you Lucky Dior. If you think you have heard this before, the colour is indeed similar to classic Lucky – coral red with a hint of watermelon -, but this one adds some glassflecks.

Application was two coats. Obviously red is the dominant shade in this.

[Dior] Sparkle (#347)

This is for sure going to be a super quick post because I’m nearly on my way to Fantasy Filmfest Nights. Its about Sparkle, the second nail varnish from Diorsnow 2019. Again we have the frost finish but this time with a peach – and slightly pink – base.

It’s ok on my nails but not my kind of shade. Shown below is two coats.

[Dior] Twinkle (#574)

Twinkle is the pink frost from this year’s Diorsnow collection, actually available exclusively in Asia – or via the Dior webshop, where I got mine bottle from.

Since it’s pink with a hint of cherry I hoped that it would look good with my skintone – and it does. Two coats shown below.

[Essence] Legally Pink

Presenting the second shade I bought from the new nail varnish range with its re-vamped bottles. Legally Pink is, as you’ll see from the photos, more coral pink than true pink. It’s bright and beautiful.

Application was two coats. Perfect coverage and I have the feeling these new colours last for ages without tip wear. After three days, my nails don’t look any different, no chipping either.
