Dior Cherry Blossom Nail Lacquer
Dior Cherry Blossom Nail Lacquer

Pretty in Pink for Fall with Dior

Dior Cherry Blossom Nail Lacquer ($21.00) is a yellow-pink with white-gold micro-shimmer. It applies very smoothly and evenly, and you only need about two coats for good color opacity. It’s very flattering on both warm and cooler skin tones, because it’s just a smidgen warm. It doesn’t actually feel like a fall nail color to me at all–definitely something I’d expect in the spring or summer.

This shade is a Sephora exclusive, and Dior’s fall collection is just starting to trickle into department stores now.  I imagine it should be on Sephora in the next couple of weeks.

    WOW that’s gorgeous! Expensive too :)

  2. Love it! This is so pretty… looks like a must-have for me!

  3. Laia

    I think it’s a truly beautiful shade, and I agree with you on the fact that it doesn’t look like a fall colour. Anyway, this looks like a very sweet and warm pink, truly flattering!

  4. Hilana

    It looked MUCH darker in the bottle than on your nails! And I have to agree, it really does look summery or springy and not fall at all.
    Pretty, but not exceptional. Looks like a “bride of the month” colour to me. Very feminine.

  5. That’s a gorgeous color! I am always so in love with Diors nail collections. And the eyeshadow palettes <3

    It’s quite pretty! I can’t think of a dupe of this off the top of my head. Can you? OPI’s Love Me Tender comes to mind but it has gold shimmer.

  7. Amy

    LOVE it! Such a beautiful color!

  8. Kata

    Cherry Blossom, what an odd name for a Fall collection item :s Anyhow the shade is pretty!

  9. amy

    It is a pretty shade, but definitely not a must have shade for me.

  10. Wendy M.

    Ooh, it’s so pretty! :D

  11. I love this shade it’s very gorgeous ! I thought it would be much darker but on your nails it’s very pretty.

  12. Ariel

    This may sound strange, but do you know of a lipstick in a similar color to this?

  13. Janet

    Gorgeous color! I’ve been trying to convince myself to indulge in a Dior or Chanel nail polish, but I always convince myself that I can just get a cheaper, similar color. This color is so pretty, but definitely not the most unique.

  14. Victoria

    Funny you should put this up. This morning I was looking trough my polishes, to find something exciting to wear – actually something like this would be perfect. But I find myself going back to a very old bottle of polish from Estee Lauder called Berry Fizz – actually it’s like MAC’s Lollipop Loving l/s on nails – and I’m left wondering…. why do I buy nailpolish all the time, and go back to the same one…..aaarrghhhh :-)

  15. Kristiana

    Such a gorgeous color! Can you think of any dupes for it that are available now?

  16. Lexi

    The number of this is it 386 ?
    Because the names are different here in France and I find it absolutely
    gorgeous !!!

  17. Norma

    Without a oubtthe color is bueatiful however because of its price and shade I will not be purchasing this color because Revlon has this exact shade in a much affordable price. Why not get the best of both worlds right?

    Revlons in exact color as Diors: 151 Iced Mauve

  18. Val

    Which brand has better quality nail polishes: Chanel or Dior??? I bought Chanel Kanki Rose and I love it! Only 1 coat and it looks perfect already!!!!
