P.S. Once I learn to read and write Russian Cyrillic characters, I’ll fill in everything here from the Dance Legend labels *and* I’ll likely abandon the café to throw myself at nail_ru and kosmetista.ru!

I swapped away MAC Bad Fairy and OPI The Show Must Go On long ago. :/

Inspiration: The Sartorialist in Bologna, Italia

Remember how four years ago ’round this season, we were scrambling for Chanel Mimosa?

Over here in California, I was planning on showing you some new greens.

By the time I finished arranging and rearranging all one zillion of them, however, I viscerally understood the meaning of the phrase, familiarity breeds contempt.

So I turned to a long-neglected basket of yellows for relief from my green weariness, thinking to organize and photograph them for sale somewhere, as a lot.

Instead, I very unexpectedly discovered a *new* colour crush.

I even went out to the varnish warehouse (my garage) and plucked up the few yellow bottles languishing there…

Sally Girl and H&M have shimmer; SC Pull Over does not…

…but Sinful Colors Let’s Meet does.  Essence C&G is the only true crème in this batch.

SH CSM Mum’s the Word, farthest left above, had the smoothest formula and best coverage in two coats of all of these (could be because it’s the newest).

Because of Mum’s the Word, I skipped Dior Sunwashed.

I’ve used my P&J Summer 2015 Sangria as a sheer top coat over Mum’s the Word in lieu of Dior Tie Dye top coat over Sunwashed…

SH CSM Yellow Kitty was the first yellow varnish I had ever purchased, way back in 2010.

I remember having my eye on it as early as 2009, and I wasn’t even aware that Pantone had deemed Mimosa colour of the year for 2009.

Swatching it today was the first time I’ve opened the bottle, so it performed exceedingly well, all things considered!

NYC Mimosa Bouquet is my favourite shade of this shimmery batch, but it’s not basking in the glow of the winner’s circle.

Streaky, patchy, sheer, in spite of its beautiful pale glimmer, which I thought would help matters along…

Blue bottle collection supreme, here.

Have an ongoing infatuation with Zoya Sailor, but I’m slowly courting her after having conquered SC Navy I Do, who is a cheaper date, lol. 🙂

WnW Coast to Coast radiates a vibrant blue shimmer.  Don’t know why I just recently noticed this…

Essie and ChG are greener than this in real life…

Rita is also greener than she appears here.

The aforementioned, with Orly Teal Unreal tacked onto the end.  Orly is indeed greener in real life, as well.

Not Sally Girl Chillax – she does lean blue.  Must be chiquita pero picosa — tiny, but influencing the big ‘uns nearby

L. A. Colors Color Craze Jungle Fever, Colorama Africa a Vista Mar Sem Fim, Essence C&G Trust in Fashion

Jungle Fever holds a special place in my heart due to unusual immense self-control in restraining myself from buying her on repeated trips to an Asian grocery store.  She was less than $1 USD, but in those lean days of 2012, I had very little money for extras.  Thus, I always consider her fondly.  🙂

Sinful Colors Last Chance, Catrice Hugo Moss

Not sure about Last Chance (this and SC Envy live in the varnish warehouse untried), but Hugo Moss seems to be a great economical alternative to NARS Zulu.

P.S.  I gave both Zulu and Galion away untried.

P.P.S.  Nail wheels are in short supply at the shops these days!

Lucky charms #2

Vintage-feel pea soupy greens. I was so happy to have found these during my month-long Mad Men six-season marathon, as both colour and texture (the Orly’s hairlike holo spangles, yes!) seem so distinctly visually apropos to that era…

Unlucky with names, yet lucky with numbers…

I had initially labeled the Sally Girl Dour, the Zoya Twila, and the Orly Luxe. :/

But I picked up Doup, Tilda and Lush for less than $1 USD each due to crazy clearance prices at most retailers.

Guess these are colours most folks would consider hard to love?
