    This is the nail polish in the collection I like the most! A bit bummed out about how the glossiness and shimmer don’t translate so well onto nails, but still it’s an interesting color! I like strange colors when it comes to nail polishes, so Diva is really my thing :)

      Diva is a gorgeous colour, just underwhelming because of the shimmer bit. I like my shimmer to really come through in a polish (its not so easy to make mistakes with shimmer polish! hah!)

    It’s pretty, but I’m so bad at applying polish so this looks like an accident waiting to happen for me haha! I’d be dropping it all over the place the nail klutz that I am!

      Which is why I paint my nails sitting on the floor so I’m closer to the ground LOL!

    Hmmm… if only one could hang them on a Christmas tree! HAH HAH HAH! Eeeeps the color is so pretteh! If I got my hands on it, methinks I’ll just stare at my finger nails the whole day, wee~!

      I’m sure one could – drill a little hole in the cap, tie a bit of string and hang it on the tree! Then after Christmas, use the polish LOL!

      Oh, good to know I’m not the only one who finds it awkward. I think the normal polishes are still better

    I love darker nail colours and I’ve been eyeing this. The light pearl one (Lady) streaks like crazy… now that I’ve seen your swatch, I think I have something similar from OPI so I’ll pass. That one applies beautifully :-) I have to agree on the packaging. Cute and pretty!

      I’ve seen the swatches for Lady and I’m glad I didn’t end up with it, because I’d probably have really slammed that one LOL Looks like a tricky formula. I have found a similar polish for Diva though, and a prettier more sparkly one so I’ll have to feature that one soon ;)

    That’s a really nice colour, and what a great looking bottle!

      I have to hand it to Dior for packaging. Hands down winners!

    I LOVE that colour and the packaging but Dior nail polishes have never worked on me so I’ll pass on this – not willing to risk it!

    This reminds me of OPI My Private Jet. I might bring that out tonight! :D

      Dior hit it out of the park with the packaging. But formula wise, I didn’t think this one as good as their regular ones which do work well enough on me, considering I can’t keep polish on for more than 3 days :D

    That’s one of the BEST nail polish packaging I’ve seen but I worry that its difficult to use especially if you plan to do nail art (ahem..ME) the handle is quite short and difficult to navigate..oh well! If you have that cute bottle of nail polish, who says you need nail art? I can just hold it close to my face and act “cute” LOL

    • Paris B
      November 29, 2012

      Haha yes, not one for the nail artists! The packaging is absolutely gorgeous though and as you said, you can always just act cute with it LOL!

    I love the packaging for these nail polishes! It’s too bad the shimmer doesn’t come through on the nail – too restrained.

    I like bold colors on nails – so fun! But it’s a bit hard to wear at work around here :/ So I keep my toes boldly colored.

    • Paris B
      November 29, 2012

      I thought it was a bit too restrained too. Something a bit more blingy would be more fun and I think make the polish stand out better :) I sometimes paint my nails but I tend not to wear open toed shoes so I’ve stopped.

    that’s really too bad about the sparkle. It looks so vibrant in the bottle — it sucks that that doesn’t translate so well on the nails.

    You’re right about the packaging, though — SUPER cute! <3

      Dior wins hands down just for packaging! Who needs to know how the colour looks right? LOL ;)

    Love the bottle! And the shade is very intriguing too, but it’s a shame the shimmers don’t translate that well on the nails.

      I think colour wise, there are better colours out there, but so far, nothing has come close to beating Dior for packaging :D

    Oh I love the packaging! It is very unique, but I also prefer its color on the bottle than on the nails…

      Seems like that’s the most common reaction – pretty bottle, but erm… not so pretty polish LOL!

    Yes, bauble!! I KNEW it reminded me of something lol. I think this looks gorgeous on the nail, although I do agree that the bottle color is just…beyond gorgeous. Definitely adding this to my holiday wishlist :D

      Maybe you could get it to work, better than I can MM! :D This holiday is churning out so many pretties, my wallet cannot keep up! :P

    I like the brush and formula of Dior Le Vernis, but chose to skip this Christmas Diorling ones. Have never been a big fan of holiday makeup because they are way too bling and cool.

    I like shiny black too! But I already have a decent one from Sephora, and don’t wear black often, so this has to pass.

    But I got a lipstick from the regular Diorling line though! So pretty.

    • Paris B
      November 29, 2012

      Ah which lipstick did you get, Jyoan? :) I really like Dior’s lipsticks maybe because they are one of the few unscented ones out there

      • Jyoan

        That will be Diorific 023 Rose Diabolo. I actually wanted the limited edition Rose one, but it was sold out at my nearest counter, and I thought it was not all that special enough for me to hunt down that one. So I ventured into the regular collection and found this.

        When I picked this, the SA told me my choice is similar to the LE one, but no, haha, I do not agree. I still think the LE one is a little bit better.

        So for people who got the Rose LE one, I’d say great choice! =D

    I love black and dark golden brown for nail polish! its so sexy

      It is! And somehow, not many people like wearing dark colours on nails, I’ve noticed so it really stands out when you do :D

    Right now I have my eyes on that beautiful lipstick color. I already have the Dior Rouge Dior Nude Lip Blush and love it. This color is pretty also.

    • Paris B
      November 29, 2012

      Ooh the Rouge Dior Nude lipsticks are very lovely! The texture of the Diorific Diva is lovely too but take a sniff in case the scent is too strong for you :)

    i liked the color though like you said, the color was better in the bottle!!! packaging is very cute but i thought it wasn’t really handy!!! many times fancy packaging is not pragmatic for me.

      That’s true, Swati. I think its a balance between practicality and beauty and sometimes one has to give :) A slightly longer handle would have been better but perhaps less cute :)

    Dark nail polish is nice but it needs sturdy hands. That’s why I am lazy to use dark colours.

      Ah I’m the opposite. I find dark colours easier to apply as I am less prone to making mistakes (or maybe mistakes can’t be seen) while light colours need my hands to be really steady. Then again, maybe I don’t practice enough :D

    The bottle design is really quite original and pretty! Diva looks amazing in the bottle, but like you said, I wished the glitters were a bit more apparent on the nails. Still, this is a gorgeous classy nail polish to me, love it!

      Maybe Dior intended for the colour to be more understated, and less blingy. Something that everyone can wear perhaps? Still, I would like something more blingy ;)

    What a lovely review! I would just buy it for the bottle. Let it sit and prettify my dressing table. Would be happier if it was a bit more opaque and with coarser glitter though.

    • Paris B

      LOL it would be an expensive dressing table accessory! ;)

    I really like Diva 901. I wish the polish was easier to apply though but the bottle is too beautiful to resist.
