Anyway, onto nail stuff! Today I selected a gorgeous polish -- Dior's "Star". Funny I'm listening to one of Madonna's new songs from Rebel Heart, "Iconic" and this polish matches the song. How perfect! In fact, a few of the songs match. <3

I have always loved Dior polishes -- the colours are so beautiful, the formula is amazing and the brush is perfect. I have zero complaints about this brand (except maybe the price!). I have maybe 10 Dior polishes and I adore all of them. This shade, "Star" is from the Fall 2014 collection and is one of their new "gel effect" polishes (super shiny & long-lasting). "Star" is a bright cherry red -- though in some light it looks fuchsia. The cool thing about this polish is it has very faint teeny tiny glitter sparks that you can only really see under certain lighting. I think it gives this shade more depth without being overly blingy or glittery. For this mani I used 2 coats of polish and topped with Seche Vite.

I LOVE THIS COLOUR! Seriously. It's one of those polishes that you don't want to take off once you have it on. It's seriously beautiful. <3 It just makes your hands look pretty. :)
Where to buy? Dior polishes can be purchased from various retailers, check out their website to find a location.
