Freezing cold and icy nails

Standard

Brrr, it’s freezing cold here in the southern parts of Sweden.This morning it was -10°C (14°F). We have almost no snow yet but the little there is makes the grass frosty and you get that icy, cold feeling when you go outside so to match the weather I’ve got “icy nails” today.

OPI “Alpine Snow” with Color Club “Covered in Diamonds”

This is two coats of OPI “Alpine Snow” and two coats of Color Club Nail Lacquer “Covered in Diamonds” (at least what I think is CID, my bottle has no name label) and top coat. Covered in Diamonds is a flakie topper that needs more than one coat of top coat. I’ve only got one at the pictures and the surface is really rough.

Blue sky and nails

Look at the iridiscent flakes!

I really like the look of these nails, they match the frost outside perfectly. A good choice for a winter mani if I may say so myself 🙂

L’Oréal Colour Riche “Kimono Empire”

Standard

Today (or actually it’s yesterday’s nails) I have a gorgeous dark plum, a very regal shade with a very suitable name “Kimono Empire” from L’Oréal Colour Riche to show you.

L'Oréal Colour Riche "Kimono Empire"

L’Oréal Colour Riche “Kimono Empire”, two coats, no top coat, look at the shine!

My husband really liked this shade, he said “you should always wear this, then you wouldn’t have to buy any more nail polish”. Bah, like that really would happen!! Ha ha!

Then I took out a polish bottle I bought in NJ, USA this summer at a local beauty shop. I think I paid $1 for it(!) It’s a Color Club Nail Lacquer with no name label on it. I think it’s “Covered in Diamonds” but I’m not quite sure. I painted two coats on my ringfinger and then top coat on all nails.

I think this dark purple is very suitable color for fall/winter and I surely will wear it soon again!
