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.Β  I imagine it should be on Sephora in the next couple of weeks.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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 πŸ™‚

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

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!!!!
