NOTD: Dior #402 from Birds of paradise Summer 2013 collection


Hello my dears! How are you doing? How have you enjoyed your weekend?
We've been busy thinking, planning, searching for improvements for our home, specially our balcony where we could spend really nice evenings this summer. If we ever come up to an agreement with my hubby and our balcony gets re-looked I might post one or two pics, would you like to see it?
As I've promised you (after having worn the shade Dior 794 for 9 days! you hear 9 DAYS is a record!!) I'm showing you today the other nail polish of the Dior Samba duo, #402. This is a gorgeous shade of green, which is quite similar to Essie Turquoise & caicos, but not a dupe. 


This was easy to apply and almost one coater. I prefer to do two thin coats, but if you're running late one regular coat has enough coverage. The brush is very nice, the regular new Dior brush, and the consistency is very good, not thick nor runny, just perfect. It's very glossy on its own, but I'm using one coat of seche vite because I needed to run  to pick up my baby and had no time to wait for the polish to dry.


I absolutely love this shade as I love Turquoise & caicos, but I'm afraid it doesn't look as good on me as it does in the bottle. Somehow this shade brings out my green veins, making them more evident, and that's not flattering! Anyway, that does not stop me from wearing it!
Do you like this kind of green-turquoise shades Which one of the two Dior polishes is your fave?
Let it all out!
Love,
Nati

    1. Thanks Ann-Sofie, I'd love to decorate my balcony, but we don't seem to agree with my hubby in what kind of "look" we want. So it's taking a little long. Fortunately the weather is awful here, so we don't really stay out there!

    2. Te entiendo , me pasa lo mismo con ciertos colores, algunos no me lucen bien para nada. Otros solo lucen bien en las manos y otro solo en los pies. Es raro explicarlo.

  5. Ciao cara! This is a really pretty colour and it looks great on you Nati! I don't see any green veins??
    I'd LOVE to see your balcony!! You should see ours in the summer... It's quite small but last years I squeezed out 29 different Geraniums ;) Baci! xx

    1. Wow! 29 different geraniums! so lovely! I don't think I could take care properly of so many flowers! I'm so bad at growing anything :(
      Our balcony is small also. It has 6,5 by 2 meters. We only need to put a pavement, and buy some furniture, and also put some kind of sunshade... but I want some modern look with modern tile flooring and light metal black/white elements, and my hubby wants some rustic thing with wooden pavement and rattan stuff. We never come to an agreement! lol
      bacioni, cara!

    1. Hi Ina, So glad you liked it! I own Turquoise & Caicos, which leans more to blue and is a slightly lighter shade than this one. But still not sure if that justifies owning them both :P

  7. This is a beautiful shade of green! Unfortunately I don't have any Dior nail polish, they are just too expensive for me :-/
