We froze our asses off....it was C O L D: only 4 Celsius in the night (and we were camping!)....who would have thought it could be so cold this time of year in the Midi Pyrénées?!
|Cathedral in Albi, France|
|And yet...there were some sunny moment as well :-)|
|Salade in the swamp.....|
We had a very busy schedule so there were not much shopping opportunities....
I only visited La Fayette and the Nocibé:
|My two finds in La Fayette|
|Lollipops - Mademoiselle Violette nr.11|
|Biguine Gloss&Shock 13573 Kaki Silver|
The Kaki Silver reminds me of OPI's Designer De Better...it has the same feel to it. Metallic glass fleck with some different colours thrown together in a happy marriage silver with green and brown flecks. The formula was perfect a bit on the thick side but very workable. This is two easy layers.
|The three little Nocibé polishes|
|Nocibé Pure Glitter - Angels Only|
|Nocibé Vernis Caméléon - 3 - Spectral Pink|
|Spectral Pink with Angels Only|
|Nocibé Vernis Brillance Éclat - 182 - Fall In Love|
|Fall In Love with Angels Only|
Second up is the Vernis Caméléon in Spectral Pink a true duo chrome polish! The base colour is a golden copper tone that shifts from pure yellow gold to bright pink. It has a lovely workable formula and the result is pefect in two layers. It sparkles like crazy in the sun and I really like the added effect of Angels Only.
Third up is Fall In Love, a strawberry jam red with some micro micro glitter and a slight blue/purple shift. In the bottle this looked very interesting (especially in the bright halogen lights of the store...). In real life I am not so very excited though. It is a unforgiving colour: too rich and to cold looking on me....I do not think that it gives me lobster hands but it makes me look very pale and unhealthy. The topper does nothing for it either, in the pic it looks OK but in real life: >ieuw< ! The contrast was too big the gold too stark for the strawberry jam. No it did not make me fall in love and even angels couldn't help me.
The formula was good, this is two layers...perhaps I should have gone for three to make it even deeper and more like the bottle.
