Dior Aloha (Electric Tropics, Summer 2011)


Dior Aloha
Ahh. A neon orange creme I can get behind. Neons always screw with my camera so just imagine this photo as being less red and more screamingly neon. Applied gorgeously: it could've been fine in two coats but I did three. As usual for Diors, it dried quickly. I didn't use the topcoat that came in the Electric Tropics set (and honestly, was miffed that I had to pay extra for a topcoat I didn't want) so this was just using Poshe. Photo was taken on Day 3.

Oddly, the bottle was made out of orange-tinted glass. The tint was actually far more muted than the actual shade of the polish, which makes me think that they didn't want it to be so screamingly loud in their displays. (Otherwise, why on earth would you put nail polish into anything but a clear bottle? What's the point?) But it is loud. And I love it.

I love neon orange polishes, but I was very disappointed by Dior polishes I bought in the past, so I will skip this one.

I only got brave this summer and bought my first neon shade - in a pink - but now I want an orange. I lived already though 2 major fashion trends of neon in clothing so it kind of took me time to appreciate them in polish. Odd the bottle on these Diors are tinted. Seems they would want the color the polish is to shine through.
