Old NOTD: Dior Liquorice

Statement of the obvious: it is hard to find Dior for cheap. This one I got from CosmeticAmerica for about $18.50 (and I think I had a free shipping coupon too). Better than $20 + shipping but it's not really better by that much. :(

Dior Liquorice

Of the four Diors I've tried so far, this is my least favorite in terms of application but probably the color I like best. I love this dark burgundy that comes alive when light hits it. In low light, it just looks like very dark purple: your average vampy shade. But in the sunlight, the burgundy shimmer just pops. The above photo was taken after about 24 hours (with Nubar Nu Nails and Diamont) so there's a little bit of tipwear. This took me three coats to even out. It applied less smoothly than the other three I've tried. Whereas for the other three, I could have gotten away with two coats, Liquorice was a mess until the third coat. The third coat really evened it out. (I was starting to feel stupid for liking Dior polishes so much before the third coat.)

Beautiful shade on you. I'm getting so many purples anymore. I think I better start waiting for something that is really special. Thanks for swatching.
