[Dior] Early (#505)

I finally managed to add the Dior nail colours for spring to my collection. 🙂 As a lover of yellow, Early was the first to be on my nails. This is a bright yellow (but with hints of lime and it’s also a bit neon) with a slighly visible shimmer, due to small glassflecks.

Two coats applied, artificial light. It’s an amazing shade, so very beautiful and obviously unique in my stash.

Natural light on the next morning (since it’s called “Early”, haha), making it seem more yellow.

[Essence] Bienvenido a Miami

Bright egg yolk yellow. I’m a fan of yellows. 😎

Bienvenido a Miami

Two coats applied. I guess there’s no need to mention but this is another of those perfect summer colours. Unfortunately, Bienvenido a Miami was released in 2012 (though Essence have yellows in their core collection) and is, moreover, a yellow that applied easily.

[China Glaze] Sun’s Up Top Down

It’s spring finally! At least the sun has come out and it is definitely getting warmer, especially compared to yesterday when the sky was grey and it rained almost all day long. I was so – literally – sick of the cold and dark wheather. Hope these fine days will last. 🙂 At least I carry some sunshine on my nails, Sun’s Up Top Down is a beautiful bright yellow with shimmer finish.

The formula is a bit runny with slight pooling at the tips. But somehow I managed a more or less smooth application (with three thin coats).

[Dior] Garden (302)

Garden is probably the most interesing shade of the Dior nail varnishes for spring, these being currently available. This chartreuse colour, combining green with a visible hint of yellow, is really extraordinary.

Shown below is two coats. You may notice that I took all photos inside and with more indirect light, revealing the green proportion of Garden.
