|Dior Diorific Nail Polish Minuit ($26)|
This gorgeous nail lacquer is part of Dior’s Holiday Look Collection and takes its inspiration from the ultimate refinement of the Palace of Versailles. Its extravagant architecture and French-style garden fascinated the imagination of Christian Dior, and the stunning makeup collection reflects the majestic golds and rich colors that dress the palace and its gardens.
Dior definitely has one of the prettiest holiday collections this year, and for me, nothing speaks holidays like the sparkling plum Minuit in it's beautiful gold packaging. This is a complex color that looks a dark burgundy plum under regular daylight and changes to a warmer-toned vampy color under artificial lighting. The shimmer that is seen so clearly in the bottle shows up just as beautifully on the nails - tiny specks of gold and red shining brightly through the dark base. Scroll on for more photos.
Minuit is the perfect autumn/winter color - a deep vampy plum base that's lit up from within with tons and tons of sparkles. This is my first Dior nail polish, and I love the formula! The brush is easy to work with (I have small hands/fingers, though, and a lot of people find the cap quite difficult to hold), and the polish goes on quite smooth. Minuit needs 2 coats to give a lovely opaque finish, and while it does have a glossy finish, a top coat would definitely give it a lot more depth and help the very visible shimmer stand out better. My photos just couldn't capture how beautiful this polish color is, but this is one of the few nail colors that I would recommend as a definite must-have and must-have backups too!
