Dior Nail Sparkling Powders
The front of back of the box. It's made of a thick paper. I had a hard time opening the side flap and creased the paper.
This is the inner box. The real box. Inside is the tray that holds the polish. You can see the little satin handle on the side to pull it out.
The first thing I see after pulling out the tray is my limited edition certificate with my edition number. On the back of it are the directions.
Finally the polish! I can't remember if I put the powders back into the tray in the right order. The powders are minis.
Here's a swatch of the powders after I applied top coat the night before. Not so sparkly.
I removed my first attempt from the previous night and reapplied the powders so you can see the amazing sparkle. Messy!
I did a much better job of putting the excess powder back into the bottle this time around.
After applying the powders a second time, I realize I was wrong about the brush. It's not a hard stick, but an actual brush. It's just very stiff. I cleaned it with polish remover after use to discover the truth.
Voilà! The finished result. I used a cuticle stick to trace around the cuticle to define the nail shape. I also used a cotton swab dipped in water for clean up. Water is your best friend for clean up in this case. Polish remover didn't do anything.
Still, my pics fail to show off the amazing sparkle. I made a video to truly show the sparkle effect, but I'm unable to upload it. I don't have a YouTube account or anything similar. I wish I could post it for you to see.
