The white I’ve been looking for! A soft, milky but yet opaque white, without being chalky. I found it! Essie Marshmallow. 3 coats here, and OPI Lights of Emerald City on top on the ring finger. But I like it more without the glitter accent (first picture) – white only gives a really fresh and sophisticated look.
Some cool greens for spring:
Stranger tides, a dusty pale green with a hint of yellow from the Pirates of the Caribbean Collection for spring 2011, by OPI.
Keep Calm, Paint On, a cool, minty green with silver shimmers from the Avant Garden Collection for spring 2013, by China Glaze.
Maximillian Strasse Her, a greyish green for spring 2013 by Essie, the Madison Ave-Hue Collection.
Mermaid’s Tears, a dusty jade green, also from the Pirates of the Caribbean Collection for spring 2011, by OPI.
Finally I got my hands on this beauty – Poudre Signée de Chanel from the Printemps Précieux de Chanel Collection. It’s a warm golden shimmering powder that I use as a highlighter over the cheekbones and under the eyebrows. Hadn’t planned it, but when the sales person at the Chanel counter told me it was the last one, I made a hasty decision to also get the peachy blush Frivole from the spring collection. Chanel makeup makes me really weak…
Here are the best shots I could get in some really bad lighting…
My picks from Chanel spring 2013 makeup line…oh they’re so pretty… If only my nails could grow a bit, so I can paint them. They broke pretty badly a couple of weeks ago, and I don’t want to waste my pretty polishes on ugly looking crooked nails… Fracas, L’éclatante and Rubellite seem to be a perfect match.
So ready for spring now! A girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do, to make the spring arrive. Here are some of my picks for the upcoming season. Never tried Guerlain Météorites before, the pearl shaped powder balls in different colours. Is there a better time than gloomy February to try them out? Fortunately, Guerlain releases a new version of them, called Météorites Perles du Paradis, for their spring look. Estée Lauder released the Heavy Petals Collection, with five pastel nail lacquers for spring 2013. I went for the dusty baby blue Dilettante and the avocado slash lime green Absinthe. My sweet hubby got me Tutu, a milky pink lacquer from the Cherie Bow Makeup Collection for spring 2013 by Dior. Can you feel the spring? :)
