Dior Summer Mix

Just a day after the official start of Summer I got a chance to play with my new Dior pieces. only has half of the collection available. I still want to get the the gold coloured Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss in Gold Sunrise, but that little one is only available on the Dior website right now, along with the rest of the collection.

I have always been a fan of the Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss so I was excited to see these fun colours come out. When I ordered Rose Bikini I thought it was going to be a more watermelon colour, but I was pleasantly surprised to see that it was much brighter.

I want to formally apologize in this post for my horrible breakout on my chin. I was trying an anti-redness serum which just ended up causing more redness by producing pimples everywhere.

This is the first time I used the Dior Vernis Gloss and I was caught off guard by the oddly shaped application brush. It's wider that most and has a rounded tip at the end. On larger nails it makes application easier, but when I tried to paint my smaller toenails it was a little more difficult.

I really like both colours and the almost jelly finish they have. With Lagoon I would say that you could confidently be done with just one coat. This is not so with the yellow share. With the lightness of Acapulco I had to apply three coats. I think it's a very pretty yellow though. It's a nice reminder that I need to go a vacation. Acapulco maybe?



Since there are no new shows to watch during Summer, I've been watching old Star Trek episodes from the Original Series. I noticed that the Lagoon Nail Polish is quite similar in to blueness to Spock's Starfleet uniform. Yup, sometimes I can't help but be a nerd.

There's a total of four Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss ($28) shades:

Orange Pareo - orange
Rouge Croisiere - red
Rose Bikini - bright pink
Gold Sunrise - gold

And four shades of Vernis Gloss ($23):

Lagoon - Star Fleet uniform blue
Acapulco - bright yellow
Calypso - bright red
Cosmo - watermelon pink

Swatch Time! I actually has some sun to swatch with (note the grass)


  1. Just draw a starfleet logo and you're done for that blue.

  2. I seriously will have to try that. High fashion meets trekky.
