Here’s another beauty for autumn. 4 P.M. is a light brown, containing a hint of taupe.
This is a classy yet special (since it’s brown) shade. Two coats applied.
Pulled this out again, i.e. found it at my mother’s. I’ve shown this already but still like the colour (which is taupe with a hint of lilac, as well as golden microglitter) and the finish; it’s called “Brushed Metal Effect” – similar to suède finish. Since Steel My Soul was released in 2012 – and Catrice have changed their bottle shape a while ago -, it’s not available any more, sorry for that.
Application was two coats. I remember that back in the early (2012) days, I didn’t have many matte nail polishes and was still fascinated by this finish.

On to the next Tudoresque nail varnish. I thought Katherine of Aragon (Henry’s first wife)would make a beautiful colour for the last days before Christmas. It’s an antique gold shade with a hint of taupe and containing holographic glitter, resulting in a scattered holo finish.
Two coats applied. Again, one coat would have been fine too, with regards to opaqueness.
Just about to get the new Chanel nail colours for Christmas, here is some sort of classic shade, Particulière, but with the new formula of 2016 (see here for the previous version). I still like this elegant taupe; it matches every occasion, always looking good – love to combine it with a bold lip, for instance.
Two coats shown below.
So here is Precious, the sister polish of Lovely of this year’s Diorsnow collection (which is Asia exclusive). The colour is taupe combined with silver in a semi-sheer base. It’s sparkling too and has a shimmer finish.
Shown below is two coats. I have worn precious twice now, not because I like this shade so much but to find out what to think about it. It’s not a favourite, I have to admit – maybe I’ll try it again when it gets really sunny outside. It looks pretty in the bottle but a bit boring on my nails, although it goes well with my skin tone. And Precious is in fact unique in my stash.
Chanel again, with an older release: Trapèze, combining grey/silver with hints of beige and taupe. Frost finish.
The formula of Trapèze is a bit sheer, so three coats were needed to achieve opaqueness.
