This is an older draft, from October. The garden in the background looks different now. 😉
Meet Me In the Mirage is a rose gold foil, also containing hints of bronze. Sparkly and pretty.
Shown below is two coats. I had wanted to apply this for so long; it is more a summer colour, and a bit of sunshine would have brought out its sparkles.
Something bright. Rain Dance the Night Away is a classic turquoise crème. My kind of colour. The bottle pic shows the mini version.
Shown below is two coats.
Happy New Year everybody! Hope that you all had a great time celebrating New Year’s Eve and that 2016 will be just brilliant.
My manicure to welcome 2016 was Point Me to the Party. This is a glitter topper in a transparent base, and the glitter comes in various shapes, sizes and colours, i. e. neon pink, yellow, green, orange and blue.
Here is Point Me to the Party layered over two coats of Dior Bar.
China Glaze again. What’s She Dune is a beige nude, containing a small proportion of taupe. Probably not really meant for the current Christmas season (I like is sparkly these days) but I could not resist. 🙂
Two coats shown below.
Finally another red. 🙂 I admit that the Desert Escape by China Glaze somehow skipped my mind until, by chance, I came across its mini versions – and had never noticed China Glaze minis before. These are so cute, except maybe the label sticking to the bottom, its print being so small that it’s hard to read when you’re heavily short-sighted. This is The Heat Is On, a bright tomato red with a slight jelly formula (but not too sheer).
Two coats shown below.
Plur-ple is a neon purple, but it is really hard to capture its true colour.
The formula is a bit runny but builds up opacity with two coats. I also used a white base (and a topcoat). Plur-ple is actually much more brighter and more purple than shown below.
Home Sweet House Music. I thought I had already posted this. Nevertheless, here is this awesome tangerine neon shade.
Appication was two coats of Home Sweet House Music over Dior Snow White. Since Home Sweet House Music is, I guess, UV-sensitive, its actual colour is hard to capture. Whether sunlight, artificial light or inside with natural light, it can look totally different. Also, I took some photos with my smartphone.
All photos taken inside. Here it looks more tangerine.
Same angle, but photo taken with smartphone.
Here it presents its orange-leaning side.
Perhaps needless to say but I like this colour! I don’t have any other tangerine nail varnish, except Barry M Tangerine, which has a shimmer finish. 🙂
I posted this already but was not happy neither with the photos nor the mani itself. Sunwashed is a pretty shade, I relly like to wear this pale yellow – to put it short, here are some better photos I took last week, with a better application than in the April post. 🙂
Daisy Know My Name?, a bright and vivid yellow.
Since this is almost neon and UV-sensitve, it’s tricky to capture. Thus, photos were taken with my mobile phone and inside. Application was one coat of Dior Snow-White (because I aimed for an intense yellow) and two coats of Daisy Know My Name.
With direct lighting.
Wearing holographic nail varnishes during the summer is really fun. I like how they reflect in sunlight, their effect is complex and really stunning. Proserpine has a teal base with holographic shimmer, and it also contains a tad of blue.
I was really glad eing able to take photos while the sun was shining, the result couldn’t have been better. Application was two coats.
