This Dior polish was available until recently on the Dior website, and it’s still fairly easy to find online. It’s another one of those polishes that are seemingly called something different for the U.S. market, although the packaging calls it Rose Trianon.
Dior’s Bronze Libertine came out back in 2010, in the holiday collection that also included Timeless Gold and Czarina Gold. I didn’t end up getting it, though, because I think it was only sold at Neiman Marcus and I wasn’t as focused on Dior at the time. And it’s been hard to find since then, until it popped up recently.
Here’s another set of pictures I’ve been meaning to publish, this time of a sheer Dior pink. This polish is one of the new, widely available Diors, but it’s called Pink Icing everywhere. However, the box is labeled in French “Rose Dauphine” and then in English underneath “Dauphine Pink”. Apparently someone decided that Americans would be totally panicked by the word ‘dauphine’, and that we should all just pretend it’s called something sugary and familiar, hence ‘icing’.
Dior’s Glacier is a new Asia-exclusive release. I feel kind of silly about it, or like I crossed some sort of nail-polish-crazy line, because I had to order it from Hong Kong. But it is so beautiful! I also have to admit that I kind of think it was worth it.
Dior has a couple of new summer polishes that are now available. I guess one of them isn’t really that new, since it’s a re-release of the very limited Saint-Tropez from last summer. But Bikini is an all-new peachy color that’s nice for spring into summer.
Today I have swatches of the last of Dior’s new Color Block polishes – Plaza is a bright, hot pink that’s warm and summery.
Dior’s Lucky is also from the recent Color Block Collection; it’s a bright, pinkish red on the nail. It reminds me of Hawaiian Punch color, or maybe red hots – it’s definitely got an artificial, red food coloring feel.
Dior’s Riviera is from the same new polish collection as Incognito – it’s something about a Color Block Collection, tied to some new Dior lipsticks. I haven’t really seen that much about it, though. Riviera is a bright orange with coral or pinkish undertones.
Today I have swatches of a new Dior polish – Incognito is part of a set of polishes that Dior is releasing. The other three are all very bright, but Incognito is a pale, pinkish beige color. I wasn’t able to find any swatches of this online before ordering, so I wanted to share it first for anyone who’s trying to decide if they’re interested.
Someone requested a comparison of two new greens for Spring 2012: Dior’s Waterlily and Essie’s Navigate Her. They’re pretty different, as you can see in the pictures…
Although the name of this OPI polish kind of makes me shudder, it’s a nice glitter for a Valentine’s Day manicure. I tried it over a couple of different polishes to see what I liked best.
I have a few more colors from OPI’s Nicki Minaj Collection to share, and I’m starting with Fly, a bright turquoise.
Dior’s Ultra Violet is another polish from their recent collaboration with German artist Anselm Reyle. It’s a bright, grapey purple.
Today I have swatches of another of the Anselm Reyle polishes – Electric Blue is a vibrant, screaming royal blue. It’s by far the brightest blue polish I own.
Dior’s Forget-Me-Not is the second polish from Dior’s Spring Collection. Like Waterlily, it has a soft, soapy-rose scent when it dries (but you should not stick your nose in the bottle to smell it-although you probably wouldn’t have gone that far!) I found out that when it’s wet and still-bottled, it smells just like normal nail polish. Not something to be huffing.
