[China Glaze] Custom Kicks

This is a real summer colour: Custom Kicks combines bright teal with golden microshimmer. The latter, however, is barely visible on the nails. But the shade is generally awesome.

Two coats applied. However, hard times after removal, i. e. stains. But the colour is worth it.

[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.
