Dior Garden Party Spring 2012 Forget-Me-Not

This manicure is Dior Forget-Me-Not. Forget-Me-Not is a slightly brownish purple creme(plummy). There is a tiny/microscopic bit of shimmer in the bottle, but I don't really see it on the nail.
I have 250 purples and the closest thing I had in my collection was Illamasqua Velocity (though it is noticeably lighter).
This mani is one coat Spa Ritual Lacquer Lock bc, one coat CND Stickey bc, two coats of Dior Forget-Me-Not, and one coat of Seche Vite.

  1. I would like to wish you, first of all, the greatest year, since so many of your dreams are about to come true and I truly wish you the best, eventhough I do not know you in person; but I guess that when a person decides to share a bit of her life with total strangers, and those on the other side decide to follow those flashes willingly, effortlessly and eagerly we kind of become friends. I´m from Portugal, I do not post very often but I follow your blog daily, anticipating with excitment what the news are going to be this time, never disappointing and always revigorated and inspired. Secondly I’d like to thank you for letting a door open for us, so that we could appreciate the way you’ve evolved into someone so inspiring, so creative, so meticulous, so spontaneous, but above all, so genuinely true to yourself. Thank you, for I have also grown with you. I’ll keep on coming here, visiting you, hoping that if you come to my country one day, I’ll have the pleasure of welcoming you personally, opening then the doors of my house to you and hoping that you’ll feel at ease, just like I do, everytime I come to your blog. Cheers to you doll! Keep on being very Happy! I'd love if you visited my blog!
