I went through my Chanels and realised that I had neither posted nor worn Fuchsine yet, so here it is. It’s a vintage colour, wine red with purple, as well as a slight but visible blue and purple shimmer. As for the exact release date, I have no clue.
Formula is still good, i .e. like new. Two coats applied.
I am back – with Poison Metal, which I am currently wearing, wine red with metallic finish and thus made for autumn.
My mani shows two coats although I have to say that it is close to a one coat wonder. Excellent formula.

It’s been a year now since our trip to Paris. I got Bastille My Heart before we left (but then decided to apply Rouge Garçonne …), a burgundy/wine red – but not too dark – with s slight shimmer.
Two coats. I instantly fell for this colour.
A second set of photos I took a couple of weeks later.
Another Chanel I got from Malta almost exactly two years ago: Tulipe Noire. This is a beautiful wine red with a slight golden shimmer.
Much anticipated. Minuit spots glassflecks in a wine red/plum base. It’s an awesome shade that puts me in the mood for Christmas.
Two coats. The pictures show my actual mani, thus topped with one coat Sally Hansen InstaDri. So far, Minuit is my favourite shade for Christmas, although I’m very excited to try (Chanel) Rouge Rubis.
Beautiful, but not really the kind of finish I prefer … Rouge Moiré is a raspberry red (actually, it’s a bit of a wine red) with a pearly finish. Looks nice, but not on me, despite its visible shimmer.
Two coats. Probably, when Christmas approaches, I might try this again. Nevertheless, I took a couple of photos. 🙂
I adore each of the collections by a-england, but the Gothic Beauties contain some of my favourite shades. Jane Eyre has a black base with a noticeable eggplant/wine red shimmer. I read the book during my final year at school, like so many classic novels.
Two coats. Gosh, it was at the end of November last year when I took those photos … And because of the time of the year, all of them were taken under artificial light.
Close-up view. Don’t even remember how I managed to capture this. 😉
One of my new favourites! Oh, I love this plum shade with a hint of wine red; I had Orchid on my nails yesterday and it looked so beautiful.
The first two pictures were taken late at night and under artificial light.
Natural light, more or less… daylight photos are tricky at the moment, since it’s raining almost every day, with the sky being cloudy. But anyway, these are rather colour-accurate.
(Tea) Time to present another OPI; God Save The Queen’s Nails (British Collection of 2003, thus it’s pretty old). Yes, that’s a great name, I love it. The polish itself is a shimmery wine red.
Two coats. 🙂
I have a passion for vintage nail varnishes and guess I own some treasures by Dior. Pourpre Invention aka Plum Invention is one of these older polishes, a dark plum with a visible shimmer.
Two coats. 🙂
