Caviar Nails, etc.

Standard

I went to Sephora & had fun playing with their nail polish. While I was there, one of the girls working there demonstrated these caviar nails. I think they mostly stayed on about 2 days until I started really picking them off (which is pretty good for me).

Here’s what was used: Dior Nirvana, Dior Gris Montaigne, Nails Inc. Westminster Bridge Matte Top Coat (I think that was it and the girl who did the caviar nail said you don’t put a top coat on, except the tip but I did anyway so they’d all be matte), Ciate Caviar Manicure in Black Pearls (just the pearls), and some other top coat on the tip of the caviar nail. 🙂

What do you think of caviar nails? Fun? Silly? Impracticle? Worth a try?

Let me know in the comments!

Shopping Sighting: Dior Polish

Standard

I was browsing Sephora and testing their nailpolishes (my fingernails were quite exquisitely varied after my fun there) and found this beautiful color from Dior! Seems like it was a darker shade in real life, but maybe that’s becase I had layered it over some other polish. I’m not a huge fan of the name of the shade, but for some reason I’m kind of obsessed with the color. (Maybe I’m just obsessed with the idea that I had Dior on my thumbnail. It’s quite possible.) It’s a dark turquoise-y color that I ended up really liking…not enough for the price tag, but liking it enough to post about on my blog. 🙂

I felt pretty fancy having a Dior-painted thumbnail. It went on nicely in one coat, but the brush was a little weird to work with…if you’re thinking of buying it, test it out first. But I suppose you could always just use a different brush if you don’t like the way this one’s made (the stick part is kind of flat instead of round. It also seemed to get a lot of polish if I remember correctly). I put some sort of shimmery eyeshadow in a similar color on part of it (going for sort of a gradient-ish look), which was quite pretty.

Do you have Dior polish? Or have you tried it? What do you think of it?
