Sephora Creme Swatch

Youpi les soldes! L’occasion de se faire plaisir sur des couleurs classiques mais sympa 🙂 Sales time! An opportunity to treat myself to classic yet always pleasing colours 😉

D’abord un vernis crĂšme blanc (dans le flacon il semble blanc cassĂ©, mais blanc sur l’ongle), opaque en 2/3 couches Sephora Under The Covers a white creme (looks off-white in the bottle but not on the nail), opaque in 2/3 coats.
Un corail poudré, opaque en 1/2 couches Sephora Jealous a dusty coral, opaque in 1/2 coats.
Un turquoise qui tire vers le vert, opaque en 1/2 couches Sephora Bikini Party is a green-leaning turquuoise, close to a Tiffany blue /Robin Egg blue. Opaque in 1/2 coats.

 

 

 

Essie Leggy Legend & Essie Bon Boy-age swatch

ConvoitĂ© depuis longtemps… hah! on vernis bronze? cuivre? or? au fini mĂ©tallique, opaque en une couche Leggy Legend I’d been coveting it for ages… it’s finally mine! A bronze? copper? gold? metallic polish, opaque in one coat.

Un vernis crÚme vert clair légÚrement poudré, opaque en 1/2 couches Bon Boy-age a light, slightly dusty creme green opaque in 1/2 coats.

 

N°7 Swatch & End of Holiday Mani!

Aujourd’hui, deux vernis de chez N°7 (collection Gel Finish), une marque de qualitĂ© que l’on trouve partout au Royaume-Uni. Le pinceau est court, plat, plutĂŽt large avec un bout arrondi; et l’application facile.
Two polishes from N°7 (Gel Finish series) today, a good quality brand that’s easy to find in the UK. The brush is large-ish, flat with a rounded tip, it makes the application easy and quick.

N°7 Ginger & Beach Blues

Un vernis crĂšme bleu lagon pour la petite touche vacances, qui rend le mieux en deux couches fines ou moyennes plutĂŽt qu’une Ă©paisse: Beach Blues, a lagoon blue crĂšme polish which looks its best with two thin to medium coats rather than one thick coat. A taste of holidays still on my nails!
Un vernis crĂšme couleur brique (trĂšs septembre!), parfait en une couche – il y en a deux sur quelques doigts mais ça ne fait pas de diffĂ©rence. Il est un peu plus foncĂ© sur mes ongles que sur la photo, et tire plus sur le marron que le rouge/orange comparĂ© Ă  OPI It’s A Piazza Cake. Ginger is a brick-coloured crĂšme polish, perfect in one coat. I did two on some nails but there was no visible difference. A colour that’s perfect for September! A bit darker on my nails than on the picture. It’s more brownish, less red/orange than OPI It’s A Piazza Cake.

Sephora Cupcake Nails

Les trois vernis crÚmes testés sont faciles à appliquer avec le pinceau court, large et plat de Sephora; trÚs pigmentés et opaques en deux couches. The three cream polishes are easy to apply with the short, large and flat Sephora brush; very pigmented and opaque in two coats.

Sephora Secret Boudoir, nude beige.
Sephora Chocolate Junkie, de couleur (oui oui) chocoat: un marron brillant tirant légÚrement sur le rouge / a chocolate (what a surprise) coloured polish: a shiny, slightly red-leaning brown.
Sephora Lime Cocktail, un vert chartreuse vif / a bright lime green.

Malheureusement, les vermicelles sur les cupcakes sont un peu ratĂ©s 😉 I sadly fudged he sprinles in the cupcakes 😉
