{Fall favourites}

Suffice to say my favourite shade when it comes to autumn (fall) is burgundy. What, you didn’t know?! From berry hues of handbags to deepened wine lips I’m all about mixing elements of this gorgeous autumn appropriate shade in to my wardrobe.

It lends itself marvellously to shades of black, mustard, cream and brown. Chocolate eyes and wine lips…one of my favourite looks for autumn.

What’s your go-to colour palette for this season?

dior mirage essie urban jungle summer nail art

indian nail art finished look

{Indian summer inspiration}

I never pegged myself a nail artist and in all honesty up until last year I could barely paint my nails. “Be patient and start with the hand you find hardest to paint,” Leeanne of Tips Nail Bar told me. Well her genius advice worked and now I’m finding myself doing a lot more than just two coats. If I can do it so can you!

This look was inspired by the textures and colours of an Indian sari and my eyes wearing orange nail polish is the kick off to summer beauty. I wanted to keep it a little on trend by including a new nude (Dior’s Yacht) as the base.

{Minimal but bright}

Oh the colour of the year! Dior nailed it with Mirage. Complemented wonderfully with Essie’s Urban Jungle. My favourite nude of the year so far. This look is so easy to do with Sephora’s Complete Art At Your Fingertips Nail Kit.

{Naughty Nautical}

This is easily the hottest nail polish to be swooned over in the blogosphere. Cobalt blue is all the rage in the luxe summer collections and Lancome’s Nuit D’Azur for their Summer 2014 collection.

Dior spring nails

{Dior Vernise Spring 2014 in Bouquet, Porcelaine Bloom & Top Coat in Perle}

Dior nail polishes have taken their place in my favourite nail polish formula of all time, right next to YSL’s offerings. There’s nothing more satisfying (in the DIY mani world) than layering on a shiny, sweep of colour with the utmost of ease. Believe it or not, more of my favourite shades aren’t easy to work with but the flat blush, quicky drying, glossy formula that Dior has to offer is sublime. Best of all? These spring shades are to die for.

Gimme moah!

{Bloom}

This vibrant shade is spring/summer perfect. A fuchsia that would compliment any skin tone.

{Porcelaine}

The name on everyone’s lips and soon-to-be on everyone’s tips. It kinda reminds me of Chanel’s Riva (the perfect sky blue) and Dior are making this eggshell totally cool again. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. This totally makes me think of a shade that Beyonce would wear.

{Bouquet}

Oh hai pretty in pink coral shade that’s perfect for spring. While Bloom fit better for a summer pedi, Bouquet is the ultimate in daytime spring shades. I’ll take this beaut for a ride when I want a a feminine and fancy mani.

Introducing Dior’s new topcoat (reminiscent of YSL’s La Laque Couture) this shimmering Perle sets to a matte finish with a hint of sparkle (pretty cool of you ask me). I love the original effect it offers and it pretty much enhances most shades it’s partnered with.

Which of Dior’s new shades are you looking forward to most?

These beautylicious products were sent for consideration and were good enough to make the cut!
