I went into the stash today to wear a polish I adore and have had for a while now. Dior 916 Or Tsarine is an amazing shimmery, golden brown that sparkles in the light. I bought this from a Dior stand after seeing some swatches online. Its still love at first sight.
As with all new Dior Polishes, this one has the fancy pants brush. And I love it. Once you get the hang of it, it delivers perfect application time and time again. You can avoid your cuticle area and it paints the polish on in a great shape. Formula is outstanding on this polish, thick but not gloopy, pliable and not drippy. Two coats provides great even coverage. Smell was minimal which is always a plus. Each bottle holds 10ml and costs around £17.50
Images above show the bottle, painted nail under lights and with flash and then the final shot is Or Tsarine with a Matte Top Coat. After seeing lots of other sparkle polishes mattified I thought I’d give this one a go. I kinda like it, you can still see the shine but its very subtle now.
Dior have been on a bit of a polish release fest in the last 18 months or so, in fact so many that I struggle to be able to afford the ones I adore. Polish Jinx has done an amazing job of trying to collate all the Dior polishes that exist, do check it out. I really wanted Dior Les Rouges (see Polish Police for swatches) but I never saw or heard of a UK release.
I really REALLY want these and I might cry if I can’t get hold of them…
