NAILS | Dior Pastel Mint with a 70s Vibe #CBBxManiMonday

Dior Pastel Mint 70s Nail Art
Pastel Mint #203 purchased by me. Rest of polishes are press samples.

I don't know if I have mentioned this, but in terms of a personal makeup brand focus, I have decide it will be Dior. I was going through some of my old Dior press samples, where I was hopelessly spoiled for years, until I no longer qualified for their PR list anymore (hey, it happens) a few years ago and realized just now NICE their makeup was! I started looking at what new things Dior had and I became so enamoured with their packaging and products once more that I decided that I would devote my beauty spending budget to predominantly THIS brand! I even have an Excel spreadsheet started just to make sure my spending is budgeted. I will focus on buying Dior through my SA at Holt Renfrew followed by I will avoid Sephora as much as I can because I find the service much better with the latter two. I mean, the GWPs are just SO MUCH better!

A few days ago, I was at work and felt that familiar urge to do a little bit of retail therapy so I popped on over to Dior at Holts to see my SA and picked up one of the new Dior Summer eyeshadow palettes along with one of the two limited edition summer polishes in Pastel Mint. The other shade, Lemon Glow, is a sheer shimmery yellow which is not really my thing, but the Pastel Mint is gorgeous for Spring! I mean, just look at it! 

I would say you would need 2-3 coats for opacity for Pastel Mint to be fully opaque, but because I was going to be doing nail art, I only used two coats. I then free-handed some ocean blue splotches and bright coral dots (isn't that colour stunning?) to create this pattern, which I feel should be on a shower curtain. I like it!
