Let's communicate.

Hey everyone,

I've once again been spending a bit of time (over)thinking what to do with this blog in the future. Long story short, I thought I'd just ask y'all what you want - please do share your thoughts! To make it a bit easier for you, I've created a neat little poll. I really, really hope as many of all 157 of you as possible will participate in the poll, and of course if you don't like the poll I hope you'll leave a comment instead. Feel free to leave any sort of "please no more of x/y" feedback as well. Please, just give me your input.

What would you like to see (more of) on my blog?

essence - nude sweet nude (Lacke in Farbe ...und bunt!)

Hey everyone,

As we're flooded with gold in all shades imaginable for Christmas, I think seeing some bronze is a nice change of scenery, so to speak, so here's my pick for the week.


You may argue that this looks sort of rosegold, and I would have to agree with you. I'm always on the hunt for that perfect rosegold shade, but I never feel like I 100% got it, I don't really know why. As you may be able to tell, this is an older photo, so unfortunately the specifics of this polish are eluding me; nevertheless, I'm going to estimate/guess, as usual: two coats and top coat. And brushstrokes aplenty.

Catrice "VISIONairy" - Greyhound To Nowhere (Lacke in Farbe ...und bunt!)

Hey everyone,

We're looking at anthracite this week, and I have yet another older photo to share with you.


As this is a matte, it probably helps to work quickly. I would say two coats are good enough here, and of course there's no top coat on. I don't usually have the best experience, staying power-wise, with matte nail polishes - for example, China Glaze Stone Cold chips on me within less than an hour after application; I do have a new favorite base coat, though, which has, I feel, increased the longevity of my manis greatly, so I might have to try again one of these days.
