Chanel 629 Atmosphere, Orly Naked Canvas.  This last is a grey-leaning buff with a subtle violet flash in the bottle, even more visible on the nail.  A perfect base for the show-stopper next door.

1x Orly Naked Canvas, 1x Chanel Atmosphere.

Bandaged middle finger, 3x BritBrit2000.  Bandaged ring finger, 3x Crystal Sugar.  Pinky, 3x Golden Rose Paris Magic Color 305, below.  With these girly shades and poorly disguised kitchen injuries on my hands, I feel like a prototype for the art department of a Sofia Coppola movie.

Catrice 58 Meet Me A Paris.  Sheer pearl with pink microshimmer flash.  I wasn’t expecting much from this varnish, but it’s the most flattering of the bunch for me.  On thumb, three coats.  It looked great at one and two, as well.  I hope Catrice’s contract with their dodgy bottle/brush supplier ends stat.  The current brushes are the worst in the business, and we pay more for them than for the oldies but goodies!

Above and below, variations on the previously shown varnishes:

Right index:  1x Golden Rose 305, 1x Floss Gloss BritBrit2000

Right middle:  2x Chanel Atmosphere, 1x Paul & Joe Petunia on tips.  I was looking forward to this combination, but it bombed.  The P&J glitters get lost in Atmosphere and just look gritty.

Right ring:  1x Floss Gloss BritBrit2000, 1x Paul & Joe Crystal Sugar.  This turned out to be a nice surprise.  Subtler and less juvenile together than apart.

Right pinky:  1x Orly Naked Canvas, 1x Catrice Meet Me A Paris, 1x Paul & Joe Petunia, entire nail.  Unique, if slightly streaky and grainy.

Final final of my kiddy-adorned but still middle-aged left hand.  🙂
