Anyone else out there that thinks Spring collections hit the counters ridiculously early this year? Like seriously!??? I bet next year they’d try sneaking it up on us well before NYE, mark my words!
That being said, I’d be lying if I told you I wasn’t excited to spot the Dior Spring collection out last morning.. had my fill of pastels for the day 😛
Anyway, the purpose of this post was to get the swatches out for my picks from the Dior Spring 2014 polishes. There were 4 released in Singapore. (Apparently the US carries two colours that didn’t arrive at our shores, Pampille 192 and Blossom 132)
The local (Singapore) releases were-
Bloom 777- A deep fuchsia pink
Bouquet 457- A corally peach sorbet shade
Porcelaine 204- Pastel powder blue
Perlé 187– A topcoat with lilac shimmers, or so it seemed. (testers weren’t out at the time)
I returned home with Porcelaine and Bouquet
Like all Dior’s regular polishes, this came with the signature wide applicator brush which is great for quick and easy application.
Consistency was not too runny or too thick, it was just right 🙂 ; and Porcelain applied smooth with a little streaking on the first coat (something I have come to expect with lighter cream finish colours as these) and by the second coat it looked opaque with all streaking corrected.
*Pics were taken with just two coats and a top coat
Bouquet applied pretty much the same as Porcelain, opaque in two coats with no streakiness, and this one was a warmer shade, so I see myself using this during Summer as well!
Something worth noting is that this applied much more brighter on the nails than seen in the bottle.
My favourite was Porcelaine, and like last years Nymphea 307 I expect this to sell out just as fast. Call your nearest Dior counter and reserve it now!
Dior polishes contain 10ml – 0.33 fl.oz
I purchased mine for SGD 38 at the Tangs beauty boutique
