my private luxury

"my private luxury" nail polish by ANNY (401)

Today I want to show you one of my favorite nail polish colors: “my private luxury” by ANNY (#401). It’s the perfect shimmery dark blue shade for any style, be it an evening dress or just a normal jeans outfit (if you’re wearing jeans, at least, I’m usually not. Like never ^,^°). It just goes with so many other colors, like all blues, purples, pinks, some greens and neutral colors of course. I just love all blue and turquoise nail polishes. I already collected so many shades over the years. Partially they seem awfully similar, especially in the bottles but…

vibrant vibes

It’s not easy to find a good green nail polish. I already wrote about the adventure how I found my last green nail polish, when I was particularly looking for one. This time it was a little bit easier: In August I just went to my local drugstore like any other day and suddenly discovered the new Essie Neon Collection. All the other colors weren’t real neon colors in my opinion and I already own very similar colors, but I really liked the green color called “vibrant vibes” (#368). It’s a pretty special light and bright neon lime green color. And…

stiletto lady

While I don’t like red nail polishes nor owning one, I do enjoy pinks, purples or rosy colors. And then there’s also this beautiful aubergine-colored nail polish: stiletto lady by ANNY (#198.70). I already bought it (and also took these photos) back in spring, on the same day I bought ANNY’s paradise on earth at Douglas, but never came to show it to you. I think this is just a perfect color for the upcoming fall, so I’m using the opportunity to write about it now. I’m honestly not into fall fashion or colors. Every year at around this time…

Electric Yellow

This year’s summer is incredibly hot. Normally I just love summer, sun and heat, but the last weeks were even too much for me. The temperature outside was always around 30°C up to 38°C during the day and in our living room we always had 28°C to 32°C. And the fact that I have a really active toddler around me the whole day, doesn’t make it any easier… Phew! You can’t stay inside because it’s so hot and stuffy and outside you’ll just burn to a crisp because of the sun. I haven’t actually been as tanned as I’m this…

paradise on earth

"paradise on earth" nail polish by ANNY (368.80) - X-MAS UNDER PALMS (2012)

At least once every week I have to decide which nail color I want to use next. And since I’m very bad at decisions, I always ask Tom to help me pick a color from my big collection (in fact it’s even bigger now, I have more than 60 different colors!). One month ago I asked him again and he chose green. Perfect for the upcoming St. Patrick’s Day! Well, this was when I just realized that the only green nail polish I own would be essie’s “the more the merrier”, a bright grassy green, which just didn’t suit my mood…

Dive Bar

Last week when I went shopping, I found a great new essie nail polish color called “dive bar” (#90). It’s a black-blue color with a pretty turquoise shimmer. Somehow I’ve never seen it before, so I thought it has to be a color from a limited collection but when I checked the essie website later, I found out that it’s one of the standard colors. Normally I don’t really like black nail polishes, because they look quite boring, but with the great green-bluish shimmer it really looks different and special. I’m a big fan of nail polishes with some shimmer…

Flashy Neon

Wow, it’s gotten really hot here for the last few days. Each day was over 30°C! After the long and terrible winter and the cruel spring this feels completely different. The change is pretty harsh, but even if it might be a little bit too hot without air-conditioning, you have to enjoy it while we have sun at least. You never know, when the weather will be bad again. The weather forecast predicts rain again for next week >.<. So I’m really happy to be on vacation again for a few days this week! top – H&M/Divided (only €2 on sale)…
