When it comes to high-end polish brands, Dior is my #2. My Chanel collection is kind of ridiculous in comparison, due to my previous compulsion of buying up almost every new Chanel polish between 2008-2012. However, I’m a bit more discerning with my Dior selections. I have a few HTF (hard-to-find) vintages, such as Sparkling Blueberry but mine are mostly selections from 2009-2012.
Summer is coming to end, so I will be posting a few past summer collections before September. The first one is Dior’s Summer Mix 2012. The collection consisted of 4 “sorbet finish” nail polishes and 4 lip glosses. I’ve deciphered “sorbet finish” as a cross between crème and jelly.
Acapulco (three coats): bright sunshine yellow
Calypso (two coats): candy apple red
Cosmo (two coats): watermelon pink
Lagoon (two coats): Mediterranean blue
The application was only finicky for Acapulco, which is not surprising for yellow nail polish. For some reason, most yellow nail polishes are just a pain to work with. The others applied well in two coats.
Is it just me, or has summer just come and gone quickly? I feel like time just started racing by after I turned 30.
