I haven’t got a special Easter manicure but decided for something colourful the days before Easter, Azur topped with Eclosion. I was really sick of cold wet (and icy) days and wanted something bright, to invite Spring.
But then it snowed the next day! This was taken after swimming, on my way home. Just notice the snow in the background. 😮
Nevertheless a close-up. Of the nails, not the snow of course. 😉
For the actual Easter days I decided on Glory, which is currently on my nails.
It’s spring – at least on my nails. I had to wait a bit until Chanel’s spring/summer makeup collection hit Alsterhaus, but when I received their phone call yesterday I was so excited. Here is my favourite of the four new nail colours, Giallo Napoli. You know I love yellows. 🙂
Two coats applied.
I finally managed to add the Dior nail colours for spring to my collection. 🙂 As a lover of yellow, Early was the first to be on my nails. This is a bright yellow (but with hints of lime and it’s also a bit neon) with a slighly visible shimmer, due to small glassflecks.
Two coats applied, artificial light. It’s an amazing shade, so very beautiful and obviously unique in my stash.
Natural light on the next morning (since it’s called “Early”, haha), making it seem more yellow.
Bright egg yolk yellow. I’m a fan of yellows. 😎
Two coats applied. I guess there’s no need to mention but this is another of those perfect summer colours. Unfortunately, Bienvenido a Miami was released in 2012 (though Essence have yellows in their core collection) and is, moreover, a yellow that applied easily.
It’s spring finally! At least the sun has come out and it is definitely getting warmer, especially compared to yesterday when the sky was grey and it rained almost all day long. I was so – literally – sick of the cold and dark wheather. Hope these fine days will last. 🙂 At least I carry some sunshine on my nails, Sun’s Up Top Down is a beautiful bright yellow with shimmer finish.
The formula is a bit runny with slight pooling at the tips. But somehow I managed a more or less smooth application (with three thin coats).
Garden is probably the most interesing shade of the Dior nail varnishes for spring, these being currently available. This chartreuse colour, combining green with a visible hint of yellow, is really extraordinary.
Shown below is two coats. You may notice that I took all photos inside and with more indirect light, revealing the green proportion of Garden.
Happy New Year everybody! Hope that you all had a great time celebrating New Year’s Eve and that 2016 will be just brilliant.
My manicure to welcome 2016 was Point Me to the Party. This is a glitter topper in a transparent base, and the glitter comes in various shapes, sizes and colours, i. e. neon pink, yellow, green, orange and blue.
Here is Point Me to the Party layered over two coats of Dior Bar.
