Dior Day! Half Moon Mani: Dior Bouquet and Dior Perlé!

Press Sample

Good evening, readers! This is a late post for me, but a group of friends decided that we should all wear Dior polish today and blog it together. I ordered 2 of the new Diors and I was so happy to see they were out for delivery today! So once they came in the mail, I had to start my mani much later in the day. But I made it!

Two dear friends, Ashley and Sheila, sent me a super sweet gift card for my birthday(back in December) and I was holding off on ordering until I picked which polishes I really wanted. I was pretty excited to see the new spring Diors and fell in love with Bouquet 457 topped with Perlé 187. They are such a fun match so I knew I wanted to find a way to wear them together for this post.

Bouquet was my base color and I topped it with Seche Vite to help it dry as well as make it super shiny. Then, I used the half moon mani nail guides from the Sticky Nails Nail Tip Guide Pack I reviewed a few times last week (HERE and HERE). I painted a coat of Perlé up to the tip guides and peeled them off to reveal the half moons. I love that Perlé dries to a satin matte finish so it was a great compliment for the shiny Bouquet half moons. 

What do you think of this look? I can't wait to use these Diors for other manis as well! Thank you so much Sheila and Ashley for the birthday presents!! <3

The Sticky Nails Guides made this look SO EASY and quick! I was definitely pleased. There are different sizes as well so that made it helpful for my nails of different widths.

If you missed my previous post, here is what the guides look like in this specific set. I've now used the half moons, the chevrons, and the zigzag guides! 

You can purchase this kit, and see the rest of the kits offered, at the Etsy Shop link below. This kit retails for $10 and has free US shipping! Thanks so much for reading!
