FUN Lacquer "Christmas 2015" - Desires (H; Lacke in Farbe ...und bunt!)

Hey everyone,

While I have gotten more into green nail polish ever since I started my nail addict journey, I have to admit I was a bit at a loss for what to show here today. Medium green is, as the name suggests, between light and dark green, and I definitely have mostly the latter. I did find something that I think fits nicely, though, so here goes.

I used three coats and top coat. This is very sheer, so I guess layering would be best. And I know the two photos don't look like they're showing the same polish, but yeah, this baby really shines in sunlight.

Catrice "Noir Lacquer" line

Hey everyone,

It's that time of year again when makeup companies are sorta prematurely transitioning their product range into fall, and Catrice has introduced a whole new line of polishes called "Noir Lacquer". The concept itself isn't very new, but I haven't personally seen a whole line done specifically with the thought of having a collection of only near-black polishes. That doesn't mean it hasn't been done, but yeah. Let's just get into this thing...

Noir Marron

Two coats and top coat.

Noir Rouge

Three coats and top coat.

Noir Cassis

Two coats and top coat. Could benefit from a third coat; as you might be able to see it's not patch-free just yet - unfortunately I noticed that too late.

Noir Bleu

Two coats and top coat.

Noir Gris

Two coats and top coat.

Noir Vert

Three coats and top coat.

Most of these are more like jellies than creme polishes, apart from Noir Gris, which I felt was more easy to get opaque and streak-free. Overall, I'm liking these.

Maybelline "Boho Babe" - Sunset Cosmo (Lacke in Farbe ...und bunt!)

Hey everyone,

We're starting off the new round of "Lacke in Farbe ...und bunt!" with coral. I was struggling to think of a polish I could use, but this was conveniently still sitting out on my desk, so yay for that.

I used three coats, and it was still somewhat sheer at that stage, but fine enough for me. I added top coat, as usual.
