[Essence] Born to Be Wild

Born to Be Wild, another birthday present I received from my daughter and my mother. And again they put much effort in selecting brilliant shades. Moreover, I like effect nail varnishes, especially when Christmas is near (and it is, less than one month to go 😯 ).This is an iridescent teal/petrol with metallic finish.

[A England] Proserpine

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.

[Chanel] Méditerranée (707)

Méditerranée is meant to be teal, but it contains a visible proportion of turquoise – making it really pretty.

Photos were taken the garden of my mother’s place; everything is blooming, and it is simply beautiful. I am glad that we had some sunny hours during the weekend. Finally! Please ignore the otherwise messy garden, particularly the high grass; my mother is not able to look after the garden herself anymore, and I will need to find out who was the gardener (since she won’t remember) or we will be gardening ourselves.

[China Glaze] Tongue & Chic

I’ve been quite lazy recently … or busy, looking forward to Fantasy Filmfest Nights taking place in Hamburg next Saturday/Sunday. Moreover, it is Hamburger Stummfilmtage currently, dedicated to silent films and in particular Austrian screenplay writer Carl Mayer. So lots of stuff to discover, and I will spend tomorrow afternoon with my daughter to watch the latest Cinderella movie. 🙂

As for Tongue & Chic, this pretty teal shimmer made its way from Elena‘s place to my stash. I am still fond of China Glaze nail varnishes, they have a great variety of extraordinary shades. Although I do not collect them seriously (compared to Chanel and Dior), I am always happy adding new colours to my stash.
