Today's blog posts share a theme: breaking all of my rules! I've mentioned that I don't like showing you items that aren't readily available, but I can't resist with these beauties. US-based readers, my apologies. Hopefully you have friends in Europe or Asia like I do who can grab these at their local counters.
Today's NOTD is a polish that I fell in love with at first promo pic. This was the color that I looked forward to hitting local counters. Unfortunately, Dior decided to keep it from North America. Much love to my makeup angel friend for getting a bottle of Dior Diorific Royale (#775).
Royale is packaged in the jewel-like Diorific bottles that just look amazing on your vanity. These don't have the typical wide Dior brush, but are lovely to work with.
Royale is a saturated, warm pink creme. This is a true creme, with no shimmer either in the bottle or visible on the nail. My mani is with 3 thin coats.
Royale feels like a fun, festive alternative to red nails, and is perfect for holiday. It's of similar intensity to Chanel Tentation, but with a creme finish. I wore this to work and it felt festive but work-appropriate. I actually put this back on several times.
