Chanel Metal Roux 93 swatches and comparisons - vintage

Chanel Métal Roux 93 – is a vintage and I’m guessing 1990's – do you know...?
Metal Roux is a bronze/red copper metallic with a subtle shimmer, not a color I normally would buy, but it's my mission is to swatch as many Chanel’s as possible!
It is fairly opaque in one coat, but this is 2 coats without a top coat. 
- and finally a comparison
- so tell me - do you like Métal Roux?

Pastel and pattern skittle doodling manicure - super quick nail art

The base color is a nameless pastel mini collection from Claire’s – see swatches HERE. I grabbed a black striper and painted some random and super quick abstract doodling. The top coat is Seche Vite.
What do you think of this super quick nail art..?
Ugly, too quick or OK :D

Claire's mini pastel set

Unfortunately this set of 6 pastel 5ml mini bottles from Claire’s have no name, not even numbers. Some of them are OK to work with, some a bit sheer and chalky. The set is cute, but I wouldn't buy it for any other reason than that, the formula is not good enough, I experienced chipping within a few hours in the green and the blue.
The set comes with a coral shade too - but I only have 5 fingers ;)

V-shaped French nail art with cherry blossoms

The base color is Dance Legend 302 (one of the Enamel Classic), see swatches HERE!
I painted a v-shaped French top with Ozotic 901 Sugar, a light pink shimmer that was more visible in person. As usual I painted the cherry blossoms with acrylic craft colors, and the top coat is Seche Vite.
I wasn't super happy with this one - what do you think..?

Too Fancy Lacquer Orchid of 2014 swatches

This polish was sent for me to review from Edgy Polish!
Too Fancy Lacquer Orchid of 2014 is a soft orchid pink linear holo made in honor of the Pantone color of the year. It's a pleasure to work with, the formula is great and the dry time is good. This is two easy coats without a top coat.
What do you thik of this soft beaut..?

Easter brush stroke nail art - Artsy Wednesday

I didn't really feel like painting cute Easter nail art, so I went for something including bright spring colors and pastels...
The base color is the mint Nailstation Juicy Gossip, and the I randomly added brush strokes of Essie Lovie Dovie (pink) + Bond Whit Whomever (lilac), Nars Sharks Left (yellow) and Jessica Sophia - True Blue. I have since worked more with the marbling technique I used and  I might eventually do a tutorial. The top coat is Seche Vite.
My original plan was to paint something over it - but I ended up leaving like this.
Do you like this mani?

This might be our last Artsy Wednesday, we haven't quite decided, but is has been fun the last two years, so it's sad to say goodbye!
