Claw Of The Day: Dior 155 Tutu Nail Polish

I couldn't resist to pain this baby on as soon as I got it in the mail. The nail polish in question is Dior #155 "Tutu". It came out in the Spring 2013 Cherie Bow collection but for some reason in America it was not released (as far as I know, only Rosy Bow and Gris Trianon were sold in all the displays I saw). It later became available as a Neiman Marcus exclusive shade, part of the "Pink Champagne Collection". Confusing, right?

Long story short - I bought it from Neimans and I love it. I painted my nails with it ASAP last Wednesday. No top coat, no base coat. Just two rushed coats of Tutu and I was out the door. This photo is of my nails a full 5 days later. No chipping, no scuffing, and minimal tip wear. Application was a breeze. 

Dior nail polishes have a slightly thicker tapered brush so if you are careful it literally only takes one stroke to coat the nail. This polish could have probably used a third coat for total opacity but I cannot rave about it enough. Finally a pastel pink that's not a pain in the ass (*cough* OPI Mod About You and Essie Fiji - I'm lookin' at you!)

  3. I want this polish so bad, i saw it in a magazine and it looks like the perfect pink. Im just going to have to get it now haha x


  4. Hahaha I love that you call it "Claw of the day" - that is amazing. Happy hump day!


  5. Do you like this better than Ciate Strawberry Milkshake? I was drooling over your instagram pic, but I can't find regular Ciate nail polishes at my sephora!

    1. I love both but I do prefer this because it's more cool toned. ciate is more of a pastel peachy pink

  6. Claw of the day? That is so funny :-D Loving the claw, girl, what a pretty pastel pink.

  7. such a lovely colour, I'd want it for the name alone but it's definitely a plus that it's a great colour and has a lovely finish x

  8. Wow can't believe that is 5 days later!! Great manicure, looks like you got it done!

  9. Aww, such a soft, feminine pink! So lovely for Spring :)

  19. Bonjour, so I know people hate these comments but just hear me out, I'm 12 & one of my biggest dreams is to be a decent well-known blogger.My posts are written with good literacy skills & much thought. I post 15 times a month & love it to death.

  20. Beautiful Sandra! I need to try that color, or the Ciate Strawberry Milkshake polish you wrote about a while back. I recently picked up OPI Don't Pretzel My Buttons, a cool nude it reminds me of your style!

  21. I have a weakness with pink nudes and pastel nails. This looks amazing... I am tempted to add this to my collection!

  22. My son likes to sleep on his tummy, for what i can tell, he couldn have wet his clothes wet 3 times each nite using diapers. But with honest diapers, even though it's not 100% guarantee there's no accident, it only happens when he drinks super-lot during the nite. For my 19-m-old boy, Honest works 3 times better than other diapers!

  23. Lovely polish
