Dior Holiday 2011 Les Rouges Or Collection Bottles

Dior holiday 2011 Les Rouges Or collection (from left to right. Click for individual swatches):

I love gold. When Dior infused their holiday collection with gold, I couldn’t resist picking up all four Vernis. You know what I’ll be wearing for the next few manicures. :)

Did you grab anything from the collection? Which one is your favorite?

  1. I have 2 of them I think but I daren’t swatch them now that you will :P Could you perhaps show us a good way to paint ones’ nails? I’m super bad at it.

    • Hi Paris! I know you have Apparat! :D How do you like it? Which other one did you pick up? Painting just took practice for me. I used to be pretty horrible at it, especially with my non-dominant hand, but now I can sometimes paint with it better than with my right lol. I try not to worry about mistakes since I just wash them off in the bath :P.

      I’ll consider a tutorial of some sort in the future, though I’ve never done anything of the sort! Thanks for the idea. :)

  2. I picked up Or Divin. From the color dots that and Exquis were my favorites, but when I saw Exquis in person it reminded me of China Glaze Ingrid, which I own, so I passed on it. I’ve been thinking about picking up another one but I haven’t decided if I will yet. I’m going high-end polish shopping this week though, so we’ll see what happens when the temptation is right in front of me!

    • You’re lucky you already own a similar color. I don’t have anything like it, so I was most excited about Exquis and Or Divin. Let me know what you end up picking up during the week. I want to go shopping, too!

      • Exquis is beautiful, I would totally have gotten it had I not had Ingrid. In fact, while I was purchasing Or Divin I had Exquis in my hand and was admiring it and talking myself out of taking it, too!

        I actually got something already! Last week I impulse purchased Dior Silver Lake because Dior sent me an email offering free shipping on polish and it came a few hours ago. I wouldn’t usually buy an expensive polish with only bottle renderings/color dots to go on but it turns out to be AMAZING! It’s a gunmetal or silvery base, pretty close to the bottle renderings, but it also has scattered yet visible TEAL SHIMMER. It is very beautiful and I can’t think of anything like it.

        I’m still excited to go shopping though, it’s been about a month since I did my first high-end holiday polish run so I’m hoping the smaller brands like Lippmann and Le Metier de Beaute will have their holiday sets out now.

        • I didn’t know Silver Lake has teal shimmer! I’m so excited to receive it and am envious you’ve already gotten yours. :) It seems to have been launched out of nowhere, but I like these mini-releases!

          What’s on your radar from Lippmann and Le Metier de Beaute? I’d love to try their polishes sometime.

          • I’ve never tried Le Metier de Beaute but they have two holiday sets out that look very interesting, and their Rock n Romance set for Nordstrom has also been tempting me. I’ve heard good thing about their polishes, the only real hesitation I have is that when you see them in person their bottles are SO SMALL (.14 oz/4 mL). On the one hand like most of us I have more polish than I could use up probably ever, but on the other hand if I like the color that’s only a few manicures and I have a horror of running out of a color I like. For Lippmann there is a set of mini polishes called “Dance Music” exclusive to Nordstrom and another set of more metallic-y polishes exclusive to Neimans. However the mall I go to is an outdoor mall and the weather here is terrible so I’m waiting a couple of days to go when at least the sun–which I haven’t seen in days!–is supposed to come out.

            • The Le Metier de Beaute holiday collections look so pretty! The colors are my style, too, but I agree, they’re so tiny and I haven’t tried them because of that as well. I know I’ll never run out of them, but I like bigger/full-size bottles for some odd, irrational reason!

              I really must try DL soon. Hope the sun showed up there and you’re able to go on a spree! :)

  3. awwww you have all of them:3 sooo jealous :p
    I like Apparat too!!>

  4. Apparat is beautiful! Oops! Here’s the bunny! :)

What say you?
