essence - it's nude, dude! (Lacke in Farbe ...und bunt!)

Hey everyone,

I don't really care about the whole "wear certain colors only during a specific season"-thing at all, but I have to say the basic association of colors or shades with seasons is instilled in me anyway, to some extent, anyway. Long story short: I think brown is very fitting for this week, as we're really noticing, finally, that we're heading into fall now.

This covers well, and I would say what you see here is two coats and top coat. I love the deep color with the shimmer, which is surprisingly apparent in the dark base.

Dance Legend "Sparky" - Aviator (Lacke in Farbe ...und bunt!)

Hello everyone,

Medium blue is our choice for the week, and it just so happened that I had a fitting shade on my nails end of last week, so I snapped a few pictures (and by a few I mean like 30).

This is four thin coats and top coat. Since my left hand isn't up to par with my right hand in dexterity, I only needed three thicker coats on my right hand. So yeah. I might layer this the next time I wear it, though, since it's still slightly transparent. The base is distinctly jelly-like in nature, so that's to be expected, really.

essence - baby doll (Lacke in Farbe ...und bunt!)

Hi everyone,

I chose a very delicate shade for rose, or light pink, which I do like quite a bit on my nails sometimes, even though I usually prefer dark or bold colors.

As this is another old swatch (yes, I'm sorry, there's not a ton left, just bear with me), I have to guess how many coats I've used; since this seems quite sheer I'm gonna say three - and top coat, of course.

Catrice - Plump Around (Lacke in Farbe ...und bunt!)

Hey everyone,

Today's theme is aubergine, and I do have a very recently swatched color to show you.

Since I'm a dork, I didn't make a note on how many coats I used (I know, I know). I'm pretty sure it's only two, though. Of course, I added top coat as well.
