Finally our department stores have received the Dior Diorific collection last week. I jumped on Diva and Marilyn (that one will or should make an appearance in my next week's NOTD's).
Of course I had to start the week with Dior Diorific Diva:
These are three coats of Diorific Diva over Rescue Beauty Lounge Base Coat. To be honest, I am disappointed. With me the beautiful shimmer just refused to show in normal indoor lightning or during our overcast days. However it added luster coming from within that I found beautiful. The formula is excellent if applied in one go. If you go over the same part of your nail a second time it's colour dragging and leaves bald spots - hence the three coats. Dry time was fast though and Ciate Speed Top Coat gave it the glossy finish. And for once I can judge on durability: I just had tip wear on some of my nails due to furious typing at the office. Else the polish remained immaculate but then I hardly ever experience chipping with any nail polish.
And here a comparison picture of the Dior Diorific brush and the regular Dior brush:
I found the brush of Diorific Diva easy to work with but had some issues with holding the metal ball that's the cap - I felt I got hands like Goliath :-S
I had no time to change my polish until Thursday, so I simply tuned Diorific Diva by adding one coat of Lush Lacquer Black Friday.
I found the base of Lush Lacquer a bit thicker than with the previously tried Lush Lacquers but since this polish is so densely filled with glitter application is very easy. I just had to dab a few glitters here and there. I used Essie Good to Go (from a half empty bottle - i.e. thicker consistency) and achieved smooth surface of nails with only one coat!!!!
Last but not least here comes Picture Polish Denim:
I love their polishes so much that I don't want to use them (smack myself). Everything is perfect with this polish: colour, formula, application and even by applying Top Coat it keeps that special shine from all the shimmer particles in it. I used China Glaze Ridge Filler as Base Coat and Essie Good to Go as Top Coat.
When I prepared my morning coffee I realised that Picture Polish Denim is nearly the same colour as my favourite Nespresso coffee
And then I went on to practise accent nails (not all that bad but I feel I still have lots and lots of room to improve)
I bought Diorific Diva at a local department store. Lush Lacquer can be ordered with Llarowe and Harlow & Co. Picture Polish can be ordered with Llarowe, Harlow & Co and Pshiiit Boutique.
Do you also amp-up your mani when you have no time to change it completely?
I look forward to reading your comments!!!
Thanks for reading!!
