Essence - Grumpy

| | Comments: (13)

Ah, "Grumpy"...
This is a colour I wanted so bad, not only because it's a BLUE, but also for its name, because I am grumpy too :D

Not much to say here, I simply LOVE it °_°

I'ts just too difficult to photograph, because it's dark and bright at the same time, and it's even a bit purplish too, so I tried to cath it correctly with my mobile camera:

... a little more true to life.

But trust me whn I say it's BRIGHT, just as my usual camera pictured ♥

Another try in low light, just to show you its darkest side...

The colour on the ring finger it's the hue you'll see in real life.

I remember it lasted pretty well several days, even if I added something else a couple of days later :^P
Anyway, straight in my favourites bin!

Have a nice day/night/whatever and thanks for your attention ;¬)

New stuff (from august)

| | Comments: (6)

I'm way behind the latest adds, but these are the august ones:

From left: 

- L'Oréal Color Riche n. 609 "Divine Indigo": ok, it's more purple, but it's not a purple, and it's a L'Oréal, a brand I don't like so much; but I've seen swatches around the internet, and I liked it. Me weak :^(

- Kiko n. 389; yes, I've already worn it, a thing I don't do as I don't like trying new colours as soon as I get them...

- China Glaze "Midtown Magic": I found a store in my city of nail and hair supplies, there were stands from some nail companies, and I really liked this odd mix of autumnal shades of fine glitters in a vampy burgundy base... Swatched here by my loved SpookyNails, and I've discovered we bought it almost at the same time, without knowing it! :D

Then, a little package from my Swiss nailpolish fiend:

Left, Misslyn n. 537 "Golden Leaf", gold-old green glitters (or chunks) in a dense dark base, I guess it won't be much sparkly, an interesting finish :>

Right, another Catrice Effect Top Coat, "¿Holo Qué Tal?", which isn't holo at all. But it's... sugary, just like another top coat I own, the Essence "Love" top coat, so: comparison time!

Swatched over black.
"Love" top coat has finer glitters, and it changes from pink to green; "¿Holo Qué Tal?" has a bigger grain, and changes from blue-violet to pink (extrem angles, green too).

Have a nice day/night/whatever and thanks for your attention ;¬)

FIVE colours!

This is not a post about five new colours I got :D

I LOVE sheer colours, but I see them always layered something else more pigmented...
So this time I tried them all together - well, not really all, just... five!

(indoor daylight)

Complex result!
Do you like it?

These are the characters:

One coat each of:

- Shaka n. 800 "Glossy Blue" (swatched on cap solo here);

- Basic Beauty n. 46PE, it added a crystal depth;

- Essence "City That Never Sleeps";

- Max Factor "Fantasy Fire";

- Deborah 3DTech Top Coat n. 102.

I applied them in the order I pictured them above, and that's all :>

(direct sun)

As always, it was 10 times better in real life, but I think you get the general idea :D

I LOVED the red-purple peeking out here and there <3

(outdoor daylight)

Whole hand-shot, looks nice, uh?

It lasted several days too; I think I used the "Better Than Gel Nails" top coat by Essence, but I guess my beloved clear nailpolish would have been perfect as well.

Pupa - n. 052 Disco Fuchsia

Look, a non-blue-teal-purple polish °_°

Ah, summertime...
I brought with me this neon Pupa nailpolish, because I knew I wanted to wear it with tanned hands.

But, wait, I wanted PINK nails, not red :^/


Look at the bottle and then my nails: different colour :^(

This is my first neon (pink) polish, but I'm a little disappointed.
It's so pink it's red!

Being tanned, it wasn't that bad on me, I somewhat liked it, but, hey, I'm not used to red, coral pink and I couldn't stand it for a long time.
In the "sun" shot you can see it a tad pinkier... Meh.
"Disco Fuchsia" has a jelly formula, pigmented, which needs a top coat to be glossy and chip-resistant.

Given that I bought two neon Pupas, I hope the next one will be better :D

Have a nice day/night/whatever and thanks for your attention ;¬)

Barry M - n. 291 Cobalt Blue

Here it is one of my newest blues.

I always try not to wear new colours immediately, because this way I neglect older buyings, but I was at my parents' home, without my stash, so I had to choose something from my blue swap :>

Few words here: a cobalt blue creme, took two coats and voilà, perfect result <3

It changes a little under different lightings (obviously), below a shot in low light :>

Now one of my favourites!

Have a nice day/night/whatever and thanks for your attention ;¬)
