Nail of the Day: Dior Red Queen Satin # 842



Happy Easter Sunday!

Just a quick post to show you my NOTD: Dior Red Queen Satin #842 - from the sweet Kim over at The Ides of Polish.

This one went on like a dream - PERFECT formula. Two coats for full opacity and no top coat for the photos. The brush isn't the really old one, it's the semi-wide, flat one from right before they changed to the current wide, beveled, flat one. It's my favorite brush they've had. I like the newest one, but not quite as well.

OH! And I've already been asked how close it is to Dior Mervielle. It's not.

Here's a quick snapshot - Mervielle on the thumb - no top coat.

It's SO sparkly in person - no glitter just a glowing shimmer or glass fleck. It's got that "lit from within" look for sure.

This is discontinued, but it's still available on eBay and Amazon for around $20 or so.

    1. Really? There were several on eBay and a few on Amazon today when I posted this! I guess there was a run on them or something.
