Hi, I'm Jen and I'm a Dior addict. <-- First step, admitting the problem. Ok, maybe it's not that bad, but it's definitely an addiction I need to reign in sometimes. I find that I buy Dior with abandon and hardly ever wear them. Well I decided that needs to change. This mani used 3 colors I hadn't tried yet form my Dior stash and they made the perfect Spring skittles. I promise to try to work harder on getting more Dior posts up.
I wanted to do something pastel since it's so close to Easter so I pulled out Lilac Colorvision, Tutu and Porcelaine. These 3 colors worked so week together and created a perfectly creamy Spring mani. But I will admit, they were not as easy to use as some of Dior's brighter/darker colors. I have Tutu on my index finger. Tutu is a soft pink creme. It was a little patchy during application so I needed 3 coats for coverage and leveling. I then used Lilac Colorvision on my middle finger. Lilac Colorvision was my favorite of the 3 colors I used for this mani, not only for the soft lilac color but also for the great formula and application. I used 3 coats for full coverage. I then used Porcelaine on my thumb, ring and pinky fingers. I wish I liked Porcelaine more, but it was a real pest to use. Porcelaine was very streaky and patchy. I made sure to let each layer completely before applying the next but I still had problems. I used 4 coats of Porcelaine. I finished with 1 layer of topcoat.
I decided to give my mani a little bling so I sponged the tips and did my accent nail with Lumina Lacquer The Childlike Empress. The Childlike Empress is a glitter bomb full of stars, moons, triangles, circles, and hexs in a blend of white, blue, silver, gold and silver. Lots of holo glitters in here too so it has a pretty awesome bling factor. I sponged 2 coats on the tips of my nails and used 2 coats on my accent nail I finished with 1 layer of topcoat.
