NOTD: Dior Capeline from Summer mix collection 2013


Hello my dears! How are you doing today? I hope you're all doing fine. I have a gorgeous polish to share with you today it is Dior 658 Capeline from their recent Summer mix collection.
As soon as I saw it in the counter at Manor's I fell in love and thought I had to buy it. But the problem was the price tag. In Switzerland Dior polishes retail at 38 USD, which is too much for a nail polish! I thought I'd wait and eventually I bought it in Italy, during my vacation, where I payed 18.50 Euro, which is 24 USD!! Such a huge difference between two neighbour countries!



Capeline is a very pretty shade right in the borderline between warm hot pink and coral, it's the warmest pink of my collection, almost coral I'd say, but still pink enough to my eye to belong to the pink category. Take a look at my nail wheel of hot pinks to have an idea.

I particularly love this shade because I always feel warm pinks compliment my skin more than cool or bluer pinks.

Capeline is a creme nail polish with a wonderful self levelling formula. Perfect consistency and flawless application, I did zero clean up! The brush is the regular wide Dior brush, which I personally like a lot. All I would expect from a nail polish of this price. I applied two coats over my Mavala002 basecoat for full opacity, and it was so glossy I just skipped the topcoat. I'm loving my not so long nails in this colour, and it's always so pleasant to rediscover creme polishes after wearing a lot of shimmer and glitter this summer!!

Let me know your thoughts on this beauty, and whether you like better warm or cool shades of pink (if you like pink at all!). 
Love,
Nati

  1. This suited you so well! Pink is not my favorite color so I wouldn't pay that price, but still, but gosh what a price difference between Switzerland and Italy!

    1. Ciao Bella, I'm glad you like it! I have a project going on of swatching my whole collection on nail wheels according to colour families, I've finished 14 wheels, but I still have many to go, and the hardest part is to gather the similar colours, and decide whether certain colours are green or blue or what!! lol!

  4. Salut Nati, ohhhhh, ahhhhh, quelle beaute!!!! This is really a perfect pink next to your skin, me as well, I rather wear pink on shorter nails. I only splurge on a Dior here if I have a voucher. Else I also find those prices here are way too steep. Bisous xxx

    1. Salut Christine, I thought you'd like it! I now buy my Dior stuff abroad, it's cheaper! I order them online over the site feelunique.com, a british site. And I get from 20 to 40% cheaper prices comparing to Switzerland!! so crazy. I sent you an invitation once, because I thought you could take a look and having a "parrainage" would give you a 5£ voucher on your first purchase. I always go to the Manor counter first to see and test the product, but they have the highest prices, then Douglas, then Mariaunnaud, but online is even less.
      bisous, xxx

  5. ¡Hola, Nati!
    Che bel rosa fenicottero questo Dior e ti sta anche molto bene! Anche ame capitò di comprare uno Chanel a 25$ (a New York), mentre in Italia costava 18 euro. Dior e Chanel costano un pochino meno in Francia, ma non così tanto come speravo. Buon week end!

    1. Ciao Francine! Ho imparato una nuova parola grazie a te! non conoscevo "fenicottero"! Tra Italia a gli States il prezzo è quasi lo stesso, ma qui in svizzera è veramente esagerato! Buon fine settimana anche a te!

    1. Hi Melissa! I'm glad you like it, I think is a musthave too! but many people in the nail-blogging world love less pink and reds because they find them too "traditional". Whatever, if you ran into it, get it, because is Limited edition! :-)

  8. This is just gorgeous! I love a good pink like this and its something that's seriously lacking in my collection. Always gotta love a good self-leveling formula!

    1. Hi Ithi! Thanks for your sweet comment. Looking at my nail wheels I couldn't say the same, since it seems I have enough hot pinks to paint a car! LOL
