High-end Review Part 2: Dior Perfecto

Yesterday I looked at the first of my high-end polishes from my Saturday haul, Illamasqua Phallic.  Today, let's take a look at the most expensive of all, the $24 Dior Perfecto.  A dark slate grey with blue overtones, Perfecto is a very understated polish, at least for me.  In the bottle, a tiny hint of silver shimmer.  Take a look at how different the polish can look even under the same light then I'll discuss application. 






Looking black in some lights, slate in others, Perfecto is a very mature colour.  Application was good, as you'd expect for $24, two coats to opacity.  I did notice that it dried very shiny, always a plus.  I had this one on for a day and didn't notice much tip wear.  What I was disappointed with was that the shimmer just disappeared into the polish.



The verdict:  Not really worth $24.  Sure, application and appearance are both nice but I'm sure there's an OPI or China Glaze that would match this colour, or come close.  It's not so unique that you'd need the Dior.  I was happy with the wear though, very little tip wear which is always a problem for me.  I'd recommend trying one of the higher end polishes for the lulz, but that's about it.

  1. I am sorry to hear that the shimmer didn't work out. :( I hate it when that happens!

  2. Are you returning or exchanging these more expensive polishes when you find out they aren't quite right for you? I hope so! I just made the super-high-end plunge yesterday, and it was for a much sought after bottle of Chanel Peridot; I had to go to three different cities to find this baby! Luckily, it is everything I dreamed it would be. <3

MOAR FLOWERS, NOW SPARKLY

Ok! So you may be feeling a sense of deja vu but WHO CARES SPARKLIES.  I actually did this flower mani before the neon one - I held the the neon glitter under my blacklight and there was no way I could not immediately apply it to my nails. Running The Sparkly Shop just continues to have perks...  And yes, I do have a blacklight bulb that handy.  Anyway, this glitter is just as amazing as the neon, it's RIDICULOUSLY sparkly.  Same thinness, nice and easy to work with.  Let's take a look, shall we?

NEON FLOWER EYE MELTY GOODNESS

Alrighty!  So I recently got a hold of some very interesting flower glitter as a sample for the shop.  In the past I've stayed away because I've found it really hard to work with because it either won't lay flat or it's too thick or it sticks up or something, and generally just hasn't really been worth it.  UNTIL NOW.  Now, not only is this glitter thin enough to behave it also literally explodes under blacklight.  LOOK AT IT.  Makes me want to carry around my blacklight bulb all the time...more....


Ocean and Sand Teeny Tiny Glitter Mermaid Nails!

Hi everybody!  Sorry for neglecting you, life is hard.  I've still been doing nails but taking that extra step to take the proper pictures and edit them and actually write words is just a step too far lately.  To make up for it I did a mega sparkly mermaid mani!  With glitter that clocks in under a mm!  For what's probably very close to a thousand pieces of glitter! YOU STILL LOVE ME RIGHT????
