Dior Vernis - Nail Lacquer Bikini 231.

Hello lovely! Today I would like to bring you a review of my favourite Nail Lacquer from the Dior 'Croisette' Summer 2012 collection; I present to you Bikini 231.



As soon as I saw the product launch pictures from the States, I knew that Bikini by Dior was instantly my new favourite summer coral nail varnish. I took to Twitter to post a gush about my new love affair with Dior and a friend of mine bought 'Bikini' for me as a birthday present when it launched in the UK before I had chance to purchase it. (How amazing!)

If you are not lucky enough to have incredibly intuitive, generous friends - then Bikini by Dior will set you back £18 and you can find it in all good High Street cosmetics stores, Boots, Debenhams, Selfridges, etc. 


On the picture above you can get a really good idea of how truly amazing the tapered brush is... It's one of my favourite things about Dior nail lacquers. There's almost always no need for any 'clean up' when applying. Even when you use your left hand! (Honestly...)

Most notably, since wearing Dior Bikini for the last 3 days I have been inundated with comments about how lovely my nails look - whilst currently utterly innappropriate for the current dismal UK weather.

The coral colour is somewhat unrivalled (I strongly believe) this Summer, it's only real competitiors shown below in the form of Orange Fizz by Chanel, Distraction also by Chanel which has a pink tinge, Cabana by Laura Mercier which for my money is much more baby pink than coral and a slightly darker version from Dior called Riviera which has much more of a Red undertone.



Having said that, if you have any of the above in your collection, you may want to hold off on purchasing Bikini in favour of another colour that adds further depth to your collection.

So how does it look on the nails? Exquisite...



My name is Laura, and I am a Dior-a-holic.

Always Geek, Forever Chic.

    1. It's beautiful isn't it? I'm such a fan. I used a base coat and just 1 coat of Bikini and then a top coat. It's such a thick consistency I didn't feel the need to use another coat and the opacity is beautiful! x

    1. As a previous 'Chanel' girl; I am a complete Dior convert. The consistency is better, one coat is more than enough and the brush (oh the brush...!) is completely unrivalled. x
