NOTD: Dior Birds of paradise Summer 2013. Nail Lacquer duo for tips and toes - #794


Image source: http://www.dior.com/magazine/en_gb/News/Exotic-Beauty#

Hello my lovelies! How are you doing? I'm very excited today because I want to show you one of my recent purchases, it's the latest Dior Summer nail lacquer duo for tips and toes. This is part of the new Summer 2013 makeup collection Birds of Paradise,
should be available by now pretty much every where they sell Dior makeup.


To be honest I love EVERYTHING in this collection! I could spend a fortune on this makeup. But to start with I picked the nail lacquer duo at Manor's because last week they were having everything -10%.


There's two nail polsih duos in this collection, I chose n°001 Samba, which contains a turquoise creme, leaning to acqua green (very close to Essie Turquoise & caicos) with the number #402, and and intense sparkling teal, kind of metallic finish, with extra fine golden shimmer with the number #794, which I find so exotic and summery! This is the one I'm showing today. Stay tuned to see swatches (and comparisons) of the other shade really soon.

This polish was very easy to apply, formula is not too thick or too thin, and the brush is good (like the standard new Dior brush, and no the old chunky one). you need two coats for total opacity. I'm wearing it with a coat of seche vite, because I'm planning on leaving it for as long as it holds! I love this shade, and the sun out there makes it look even more gorgeous.



I'm so happy I got this one, I was hesitating, but I don't have any dupes in my stash. The closest shade in my collectionis a very old one from Astor (n°66) but it needs like 4 coats to be opaque and it leans a a little bit more to blue than to green. But is very very close, so if you have it you may not need the Dior one. It comes really pricey.


Have you spotted the new Dior Collection? Anything about it that appeals to you? What do you think about the nail polish shades? Do you know of other possible dupes?
Please, do not hesitate to share your thoughts!
Love,
Nati

  7. Salut Nati, I discovered the new Dior Collection with Globus and took my own sweet time to ogle its contents ;-) - and left without any of the polishes!!! You defintely picked my favorite of the duos and this shade looks simply perfect on you!!! I think I have a similar from Jade - an awesome green/blue foil that really should get back onto my nails soon!!! I am so curious to see the green on you too and oh I treated myself with the lip maximiser :-) Bisous xxx

    1. Salut ma belle Christine, You're right the nail colours of the collection are very summery and pretty but not all that unique. I took it despite the fact the green one looks so similar to Turquoise & caicos, just because I fell in love with this teal and have nothing in my collection that's really as gorgeous.
      So I see you're all lippie lately! great, shiny lips are so sexy for summer! bisous,xxx

    1. hi Melissa! my prize arrived this morning, thanks!!
      I thinks the Dior collection is right in my beloved palette for summer, greens, tels and turquoises, so I'm having the hardest time o resist and no buying everything!! lol. But I'll most probably pick-up one or the other 5-colour eye palette. bisous!
