Nails Of The Day: Dior Pandore. Forever Red.

I am the biggest red manicure fan ever, and quite frankly red nail polish is one of my favourite makeup product, it feels very me. And while I have been a huge fan of Max Factor Cerise, and used up 3 bottles  of it, I’ve decided to treat myself to some  high end red nail polishes.

So please meet these beauties: YSL  6 Red Dada and 754 Dior Pandore.

I would say that Dior nail polishes are probably my favourite high end ones, I love the wide and thin brush, the formula and the application. Below I am wearing

Finally the eagerly awaited new mascara and eye shadows from Dior are  available!

I am personally a huge fan of DiorShow mascaras and have written about three of them actually:  Unlimited, Extase and New Look.

So I am, obviously, excited about the new member of the DiorShow family which is a Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Mascara (£23).
