Dior Holiday 2013 Nail Polish : Dorific Vernis No. 993 Minuit

Autumn in England (borderline drop us straight into Winter) has finally upon us. This has definitely put me in the mood of dark nail colours.

The latest launch of Dior's Golden Winter (Holiday) Collection 2013 has four nail colours and a bottle of crystal pearls topping. The one I picked up is Dorific Vernis No. 995 Minuit.

Minuit is a dark plum purple with gold shimmer. The very fine gold shimmer give an extra dimension to the dark purple. I own quite a few different dark purpley burgundy nail polishes, but none has gold shimmer in them. Minuit looks festive yet very elegant at the same time. The colour reminds me of the starry midnight sky, exactly as the name of the polish. 

Please excuse my super short nails at the moment...
The application is very easy. I like two coats to maximise the richness of the colour, but one medium coat would also be ok if you are in a rush (to bed, for example... LOL). With a good top coat (I use Dior's Gel Coat) the colour can easily sail through 4-5 days and still looks perfect.

The limited edition bottle is just so adorable and beautiful that it will be on display on my dressing table this whole winter!

Are you tempted by any product in this collection yet?

Dior's Holiday Collection 2013 is exclusively at Selfridges at the time of writing..

"Are you serious?" I know what you are thinking. Wetherspoon pubs have revamped their menu and food quality, but the price has stayed low.

Budget Buy: MUA nail polish in Natural Days

When I was in Superdrug to buy the Tiffany colours (NYC nail polishes  - check out my blog post here ), as the offer was 3 for 2 across all nail polishes, I picked up a MUA polish as my freebie. I saw this pastel baby pink colour in Natural Days. The colour looks really cute in the bottle.

Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum

Lately I have been obsessed with the Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum . In the past I tried the Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution, it was alright but I didn’t find the result that amazing. So when I got a sample of for this Estee Lauder Enlighten Serum, I didn’t have high hopes … But how wrong I was! The sample bottle lasted me for two generous weeks and after that I rushed out to get the full size. Although it is called a serum, it is a light milky lotion texture, it is easily absorbed into skin and it feels moisturising. With the sample bottle, I used it every night after my cleansing routine. I can see visible results to my face after two weeks. My blemish marks are significantly lighter (my main concern) and the skin tone for the rest of my face is visibly more even.  Now I have the full size bottle (30ml, also available in 50ml size), I am going to follow the instructions to use it both day and night. Use it at night to reduce
