[China Glaze] Highlight Of My Summer

Highlight Of My Summer. Amazing neon mint green – truly an unsual combo, which is why I like this so much. Moreover, it has been snowing again (note: It’s Holy Thursday and exactly one year ago we had 22 degrees celsius outside 🙄 ), so I need bright colours that at least remind of spring.

Two coats shown below. The neon is more on the pastel side but it’s really bright and flashy. Couldn’t stop looking at my nails and admiring it. 😉

[Chanel] Paparazzi (#579)

I tried to find Paparazzi in this blog, then realised that I had worn but obviously not been taking photos of it … thus I applied it again. The colour is brown with a hint of plum and copper shimmer.

Two coats shown below. I didn’t like it when I first tried it shortly after its release (hence summer 2013) but don’t remember why. Maybe the usual skinton/nail colour clash. Nevertheless, when I wore Paparazzi again a couple of weeks ago, I thought it looked really classy on my nails. Even under artificial light. 😉

So, I’m sorry for not having shown it before. But even if I had – Photobucket is still keeping my stuff on hold, and I am very slow regarding migrating to flickr. I usually try to update all posts (i. e. uploading photos again) I notice you were clicking on, so at least you’ll have those.

And for something else: Tomorrow we’ll be going to a pool party, which is taking place at the local swimming bath (it’s a small, but this place has only a population of 32,000). You remember that I love swimming and I go there regularly. There will be a professional setup, involving many games and so, of course, it’s especially for children, so I guess my daughter will have loads of fun. And me too. People are so incredibly nice over there, guests as well as staff. I have kind of a swimming buddy – not a real buddy, just an old man I can share a lane with when it gets too muddled up in the pool. So we never speak – but don’t get in each other’s way, and he is a bit faster than me, but I seem to have gotten better, haha. 😉 But what I was actually about to say: At first, I thought he was in his mid-50s, until I could take a look at his face without his goggles – I would have guessed: 70 and above. But swims so so fast! Today I had another peek, and believe me or not: He must be way older than 80! I was just thinking: OMG! 😯 I wish I was that fit. Amazing.

(Also loved that tousle-haired granny today, who was a slow swimmer but still decided to move to the fast track – which I only use when there is no other lap. She looked to happy and smiled a lot! 🙂 )

[Dior] Créoles (678)

Apart from (vintage) Chanel nail polishes, I have quite a few Diors too I have not tried yet. I am currently wearing Créoles, a bright pink (with a touch of blue) which was released in 2013. I remember that the released date somewhat clashed with Fantasy Filmfest so that I preferred darker colours at that time of the year, and so Créoles waited patiently in my stash … to be forgotten until two days ago. 🙂

[China Glaze] That’s Shore Bright

I’m having trouble with my internet connection currently, so I haven’t uploaded new swatch pictures so far. But luckily (or not), there are still lots of drafts. For instance That’s Shore Bright. In the summer, I love neons and pastels, and since I have presented a couple of pastels lately, here is the next neon shade, a bright pink with a tad of lilac.

[China Glaze] Too Yacht to Handle

Since the days are getting warmer (hopefully, because actually the weather forecast had mentioned something like 19° C for Good Friday, but in fact, we barely hit 10 degrees 😦 ), I love wearing neon shades. Too Yacht to Handle is a dream of a jade green, mixed with a dab of turquoise.

I guess that I don’t have to express my love for China Glaze nail varnishes again. 😉 Shown below is two coats.

This is pretty off-topic, but I prepared yummy easter nests. 🙂
