A true vintage shade – I have no idea about the release date of Flocon. But as you see, this is a white pearl.
Because Flocon tends to be a bit sheer, I needed three thin coats to achieve full coverage. Below is the result.
When I noticed No Hurries, No Worries at the local drugstore near my mother’s, I could not resist. White. Just pure and plain white.
But what is more, No Hurries, No Worries has great coverage. Shown below is two coats; having some experience with white nail polishes, I feared at least three coats … So overall, this is amazing!
Artificial light. I’ve had No Hurries, No Worries on my nails for three days – topped it with Dior Reflects on day 2. No chipping, no tip wear. 🙂
This is probably a totally summer colour – Optic White is (the name says it) white with shimmer, due to small glassflecks. You might remember that I love whites and this one is quite unique in my stash, because of its shimmer.
Dior does gorgeous whites! Remember Snow White and its high pigmentation? Optic White, too, is almost opaque with only one coat and definitely opaque with two, as shown below.
The shimmer, however, is not too present. I tried to take a macro shot but guess there is hardly anything to recognise …
One more white (although I am currently wearing the new Blanc White by Chanel; finally, I could get my hands on the Spring collection – photos will be shown soon) … The Frosted has a matte (or suède) finish, yet this white contains glitter particles.
This is two coats without top coat under artificial light.
Applying a top coat brings out the shimmer. I took these photos the next morning, so it’s natural daylight. Even though I like matte nail colours, I prefer the glossy look in this case.

Yesterday I paid Alsterhaus a visit; it was my daughter’s birthday and we wanted to go out a bit, actually having some chai latte. However, no spring collection yet, neither Chanel nor Dior. Instead they were moving their stuff to a different part of the department store, trying not to seem too busy. Refurbishing is still going on at Alsterhaus.
At least I have a Chanel to present today, and as it seems that I’m into white these days, it’s Blanc Ceramic. White with pearl finish.
It’s rather sheer, thus three coats.
