Dior Spring 2015 Kingdom of Colors - Dior Vernis 294 Lady and Top Coat Eclosion 001

Dior’s Spring 2015 Kingdom of Colors features quite a fun and eclectic mix of colors, but there are 2 particularly fun items that I’ve been playing with the past week. 

2 of the 4 varnishes launched with the collection; 

  • 294 Lady - a dusty mauve-pink creme
  • 001 Top Coat Eclosion - a multi-colored and -shaped speckled top-coat in opaque pastel colors

If you want the ladylike look for Spring, 294 Lady is perfect. But if you like things a little more “Springy” and fun, that top-coat works beautifully over any bright or pastel creme polish. 

Applied over pastels, it looks like little sprinkles on a cupcake. Yum.
