I was totally drawn to this colour when I first set my eyes on it. My brain was chanting, "Buy, buy, buy!" And so, I bought, bought, bought.
Bronze Caprice is like a goddess in my eyes. It’s brownish gold. It’s bronze with oomph. I wiped some of this polish off on a piece of tissue and eww, the colour was very unpalatable. It was like.....you know.....excrement. But wait.
Nobody applies nail polish on tissue paper, so banish that thought!
In fact, it’s not at all a flat colour. It’s, as the name suggests, bronzy with tiny specks of shimmers in the formula. Application was a breeze with no weird streaks. Its consistency was just right, I thought.
Arcancil is a French brand that began life in 1935. In the old days, its forte was eye makeup, especially eyeliners and mascaras. Currently, it offers a whole range of makeup products priced at around the level of GOSH. If you’re interested, more information can be gleaned from the Arcancil website.
I’m sure you can tell by now that I’ve become quite addicted to stamping. Perhaps it’s a passing phase (or perhaps not). Here, I’ve used this image from the Essence Nail Art Stampy Set 02 Have Fun. The maroon nail polish used for the stamping is a Stiletto Nail Polish from Alessandro.
My nails here are with two coats of Bronze Caprice and the photos were all taken in daylight. Bronze Caprice was very camera-friendly. The colour you see here is simply the colour in real life: rich, bronzy and opulent.
Oh, that thing I’m clinging on to is a woollen scarf but it’s not just any woollen scarf. It was a Christmas gift from some years ago from a very dear friend whom I’ve known for a long time. I don’t see her that often anymore as she lives across the Channel. Mary’s a lovely lady with a kind soul and just a few months ago, she turned 85!
