BM16 & Dior Vernis Pink Porcelain

Hi everyone!

Today I would like to show you the latest manicure I'm wearing: Dior Vernis Pink Porcelain & BundleMonster plate 16. Yes, I'm still wearing Pink Porcelain! I don't know if it's because of the quality of the Dior polish, or because of my new CND Stickey Base Coat, but this manicure seems to last forever! :)

It began to bore me a little, so I tried this BundleMonster plate no. 16 for the first time...



Base: Dior Vernis Pink Porcelain (about 3 to 4 coats, on some nails)
Stamping: White stamping polish from Backscratchers
Topcoat: Seche Vite

Because my nails are too long, and also a bit too wide, for the small BundleMonster full images, I double stamped each nail (I stamped horizontally, and with this image, it works and doesn't really show).




For about a month ago, I ordered 3 bottles of stamping polish from Beautiful Scratchers. I saw some pictures on another blog with very opaque white stamping results, so I thought: must try them!
This was the first time I tried them, so can't really tell if they're really that opaque as I thought they would be. I must try them on a darker base color.


I like this manicure, and I'm already wearing it for a couple of days...

I made the ring myself, and I'm so happy with it! :)

Have a great weekend!

Love,
Kim

Dior Vernis Pink Porcelain

Hi everybody!

Today I want to show you a polish that I got as a gift:





It is Dior Vernis Pink Porcelain. It's a babypink, with bright silver shimmer in it. Beautiful in the bottle but a real pain in the ass to apply! Unfortunately the shimmer disappears when applied on the nail...The polish is also very streaky, and needs 3 to 4 coats to be really opaque. Overall very disappointing for a polish which is too expensive in my opinion (€22,50 about $33).

Here are some swatches:

On this pictures you can see the shimmer in the bottle but not on my nails...


See how beautiful the shimmer is?
Too bad it doesn't show on my nails...


I like the color; too bad it takes 4 coats to get the streakyness even...


What do you think about this color... Would you buy it?

Do you own Christian Dior polishes?

Have a great weekend!

Love,
Kim
