Back to a classic holiday red for Christmas this week, with Dior’s re-issued Marilyn. Now, while I have to admit to loving the color (a true red with an almost invisible shimmer), I also have to say I’m not really crazy about the polish itself. First off, the brush felt a bit awkward. I’m used to sweeping one side of it then applying color on the nail with what product’s left on the other. This didn’t work here, since practically no product was left on the brush if you did it. So, “dip and apply” seemed like the way to go. The polish consistency was also a bit off and getting a uniform color result proved quite tricky. There was no streaking but the color seemed to pool in places, creating what looked like “bold” patches in others. I actually had to re-do one nail ’cause of that, so not too happy… Two coats (+ topcoat) and about an hour later I am still not feeling confident about going to bed (feel nails sticking to each other still, and would hate to wake up to a bedsheet-ruined night’s work) which is another thing I am not happy about. All in all, considering value for money, I doubt I’ll be buying Dior nail polish again…Any of you have different experiences? Do share…
Simply stunning. You can’t beat a classic red, especially at Christmas. Lovely, just lovely xx
No problem xx
Thanks for the honest review! Too bad it wasn’t right in so many ways. The shade is similar to Revlon’s Cherries in the Snow (but no shimmer) and I think you might love that one – especially as it’s really easy to work with. And Cherries in the Snow dries quickly as well. 🙂
Revlon is impossible to find in my hometown. What a bummer 😦 Would have loved to try “Cherries in the Snow” out!
Oh no! I thought Revlon is everywhere. 😦
You’d think… Apparently not around here, though 😦 Damn!
Darling, I’m off to bed now.
Have a good night.
Me too! Have a 6.30am start, tomorrow (& everyday, really).
Go get some rest! Sweet dreams 😉
