Dior Croisette Summer Collection: Nails in Saint Tropez

When I saw the press release of Dior Croisette Summer Collection, I was attracted to 2 things: The nail varnish in Saint Tropez and the eye glosses which I thought were interesting. I just got back from my 2-week vacation, and the first thing I did (other than unpacking) was to paint my nails with this beautiful sea foam blue!


Do you see how pretty this is? It brightened up my mood almost immediately! The photos don’t translate the hint of teal in the shade, but in real life, the colour is not a true blue. As all Dior nail varnishes go, the texture is creamy and what you see above is 2 coats, without base or top coat, taken in natural day light. It goes on smoothly without streaking and the brush is flat and thick, made easy for dummies like me. I don’t have a steady hand when it comes to applying nail varnishes, and I love how easy it is to use this brush.



This colour is one of the 2 released in the Dior Croisette Summer 2012 collection, and I’m glad I was sent this. Absolutely stunning! If I’m not mistaken, this retails for RM72 and it is limited edition. Here is another photo below, taken with flash.



I wish I had this before I went on vacation. This is such a lovely shade of light blue with a tinge of teal. I’m thinking it will go well with flowy sun dresses, and even with denim. In fact, I’m going to wear black to work tomorrow just to emphasise my bright nails.

Have you checked out the Croisette Summer collection? I will be featuring the eye gloss soon, so stay tuned!

    This is adorable! I swatched both nail polishes at the counter, but naturally Bikini works a lot better for me. This one doesn’t look bad on me per se, but I’m still not sure it’s for me. Looks great on you though!

      I say give it a try! I always feared colours before but because I had to try new things for the blog, I find that it’s really not as bad as I thought! Warm or cool, there are ways to make it work 🙂

      Hi Bellen, this is quite lovely, isn’t it? Have you tried this yet?

  • Bellen

    Unfortunately not. I think this collection is not yet available in my country. Somehow everything comes to us with delay. 🙁

      Well, when it’s out, be sure to check it out. The colour in my photos turned out more blue than it really is. In real life, it is a more unique colour =)
