[Wet n Wild] I Need a Refresh-mint

Quite literally, yes! Over the past few days, temperatures have risen to about 33 °C. I Loved it but when it gets that warm, liquid intake matters so much. Moreover, we wnt to the swimming bath every day. It’s so mich fun there and never crowded. Before we left for Lower Saxony, I secured my pick from Chanel’s collection for autumn at Alsterhaus, but due to the heat, I’m still not in the mood for anything autumnal (indeed, I have been wearing neon colours on my nails and am sill) … so I have not tried anything yet (got some eye makeup stuff too and the solours look so amazing).

As for today’s nail colour, it’s I Need a Refresh-mint. Classic mint green with a tad of turquoise. I remember when I received this from my friend Judi of Middle Aged Beauty Queen blog, and since I am a huge fan of mint shades, this became a favourite instantly.

[Dior] Bay (601)

Bay has been released only recently and is, as I understand, kind of super limited, which is sad because it mint green colour (also spotting a hint of turquoise) makes it special, even in my Dior stash. Notice my reflection on the lid; I tried really hard capturing the actual shade of Bay. :mrgreen:

As soon as I had Bay on my nails, the sun came out. Nothing beats outdoor photos, I guess. Two coats applied.

[A England] Katyusha

This is from the current Russian Soul collection, you may notice a slight hint of turquoise added to the white gold base … packed with metallic shimmer too.

Katyusha

Formula of A England is flawless als always; I applied two coats and seized the sunshine. In bright sunlight, Katyusha is a stunner.

[Dior] Polka Dots Pastilles 001 (212, 795)

I’m back from Fantasy Filmfest Nights and had a wonderful time. Ten films in two days, that’s my passion. While I had chosen YSL Nuit Noire for the film fest (best match for the theme), I managed to try the second Polka Dot set, Pastilles, with 212 (beige) and 795 (turquoise)

Pastilles

This time, I was satisfied with how the dots looked. 😉 Actually quite proud. I gave up on the idea of holding to bottles at once because my hands are too small …

Pastilles

The turqoise shade is in fact much brighter, a bit hard to capture too. But I hope the photos might give you an idea. Unfortunately, this colour stained upon removal.
