Dior Vernis Haute Couleur Gel-Effect Shine & Wear Nail Laquer | Junon and Front Row | Photos, Swatches, Review

The new Dior Vernis Haute Couleur Gel-Effect Shine and Wear Nail Laquer ($26 CAD) gives beauty lovers the ultra-shiny and lasting finish of a gel manicure in 14 beautiful shades. Techno-Polymer from laminated glass technology transfers the lacquer into a film that is as shiny and smooth as glass. Organic silicon in cooperation with the adherence properties of the Techno-Polymer create and invisible fusion between the polish and nail for long-lasting wear.

494 Junon and 769 Front Row are both classified as Statement shades.

Junon (shown two coats with no top coat) is a gorgeous mid toned grey. Who knew I could love boring old grey so much? This is NOT boring!

Junon with the matte top coat 187 Perle (released with the Spring 2014 Trianon Collection) creates a stunning smoky lavender nail. I am obsessed with this combo!

Front Row (shown two coats no top coat) is an insanely stunning bright, iridescent pink. I mean WOW!

The improved rounded, flat shape of the new Dior Vernis brush makes impeccable application effortless. I am very impressed with this new formula. Of course it isn’t going to really be as resilient and long-lasting as an actual gel manicure but it sure is an amazing nail lacquer. The finish is gorgeous.

Available April 2014 at Dior Counters Nationwide and The Bay and TheBay.com. Available at Sephora in May 2014

Trind Caring Color Spring/Summer 2014 Beauty and the Beach Nail Lacquer Collection

I have a Spring/Summer 2014 collection to share with your from brand that is to to me. Trind was founded in 1988 in the Netherlands.


Trind Nail Lacquer in Burst my Bubble, Miss O’Hara, Mellow Yellow, Appletini, Mint Julep, Surf’s Up


Burst my Bubble is a bubblegum pink crème. Formula is a touch thick but applied well and was even after two coats. This is such a pretty pink.


Miss O’Hara is a fuchsia red crème. It actually has almost a jelly transparent quality to it. It was the thinnest formula in the collection and the best in my opinion. It applied flawlessly.


Mellow Yellow is a yellow crème had the thickest formula and was the most troublesome to apply. It is still a touch uneven after two coats but not that noticeable. This is such a great shade of yellow that I find it work the little bit of extra effort. It can be tough to find a yellow with nice opacity sometimes and Mellow Yellow delivers.


Appletini is a green crème with hidden golden micro shimmer. It is probably my favourite in this collection. It is such a fun shade of green and the micro shimmer offers such a beautiful touch. The formula is pretty thick on this one as well but with care you can get a nice even application in two coats.


Mint Julep is described as a teal crème. Beautiful shade and the formula on this one was lovely and opaque in two coats.


Surf’s Up is a blue pearl. The formula was nice and thin on this one. I found it tried to pool in spots on my nails for some reason but with two coats the coverage was even. Such a beautiful shade for spring and summer.


The Trind Caring Color brush is on the long side as is the handle. I thought I wouldn’t like that but I found it actually worked very well. While overall the formula overall certainly wasn’t one of the best I’ve used the colours offered in this collection are all perfect. It is just such a bright and lively breath of fresh air and a versatile well rounded collection for spring and summer.

The Trind Spring/Summer 2014 Collection is available at www.nailpolishcanada.com and www.spaboutique.ca and is $13 CAD per bottle.

OPI Muppets Most Wanted Collection | Photos, Swatches, and Review

Muppets Most Wanted opens in theatres this Friday March 21st and OPI is celebrating with the limited edition, 8 shade,  OPI Muppets Most Wanted Collection. I have 6 of the 8 shades to share with you today.

OPI Muppets 01

Int’l Crime Caper, I Love Applause, Chillin’ Like a Villain


Int’l Crime Caper To miss this opalescent pearl would be the crime of the century. This is a very sheer opalescent white that reflects quite strongly pink. Quite pretty.

I Love Applause This sheer, sweet pink deserves a standing ovation. This is a lovely soft pink that is quite sheer. I found after two coats it was still pretty uneven.

Chillin’ Like a Villain My evil plan… to get away with this precious, sheer nude. This is a pretty nude peach that is quite sheer. I found after two coats it was still pretty uneven.

Kermit Me to Speak, Gaining Mole-mentum, Let’s Do Anything We Want!


Kermit Me to Speak Listen up… I’ve got lots to say about this rosy mauve. I took lots of (pretty crappy sorry!) pictures of this fun duochrome shade that flashes from purple to mauve to antique gold. It’s a really love shade with nice even coverage in two coats.

Gaining Mole-mentum Make your beauty mark with this shredded gold and chunky pink glitter. I absolutely love this mix of gold and pink shard glitter. It is such a fun look and once coat gives a nice even dispersion of glitter.

Let’s Do Anything We Want! There’s no holding back this rose gold glitter with white confetti. I was surprised by how much I loved the effect of this mix of pink and white glitter and white confetti. I do wish there was a higher concentration of the white confetti as I found I was struggling to get even one piece per nail. I really love how this looks over a soft pink.
