Catrice - Vino Tinto (Lacke in Farbe ...und bunt!)

Hey guys!

We have a blast from the past today! This picture is already pretty old, but fits the aubergine (or eggplant) category so nicely that I could finally put it to good use. Here we go!

Two coats, fully opaque, gorgeous color! This is with top coat. I was surprised at how much I loved this, it was a bit of an impulse purchase. Catrice is changing up their standard range for spring and summer right now, but this is still in there so go get you some!

Christmas 2014 nails

Hey guys!

Back to English I am, and with a bit of a throwback as well! Remember my post on Christmas Eve 2014? I say that like it was ages ago... well, it was a few weeks ago. Before this turns into any more of a disaster, let's look at the polishes, shall we?

Christmas Eve
I put down two coats of Gloriana by a-england (Elizabeth and Mary LE) as a base and then added deborah lippmann's "Boom Boom Pow" for a bit of a special touch. I proceeded to mattify the whole thing... and didn't really like it. But by that time I was beyond caring (since prior to starting that mani I had spent basically all day contemplating what I wanted to wear, unable to decide on one thing or another), so I just thought "eff it, this is what I'm wearing".

Christmas Day
So since I didn't like what I'd put on the night before, I didn't mind messing around with some new stuff. I had Anny's "look of love" sitting on my desk and just put it over what I already had on - and loved it! I wore this for about three or four days total. Of course it was a bit of a pain to take off, but well.
