Dior / Diorific - Minuit #995

Hi everyone! I'm back today with Dior's stunning nail polish Minuit #995 :) It was released alongside Winter #128 which I reviewed last week, in the Dior Diorific Golden Winter Holiday Collection. Minuit is a deep burgundy shimmer - the base is maroon-red with purple undertones, and it's full of gold and red glimmering flecks. The gold pieces really add dimension to this dark polish, contrasting the purplish hues, and I think that's what makes it so eye-catching. I'd say it has a jelly formula, as with 2 coats it was still a bit see-through, so for once I actually went with 3 coats! :) As I wore my ol' trusty base coat, there was no staining at all, no problemo. Maybe you could skip wearing top coat because of the super glossy finish, but I personally always wear both base and top coat! :) Final verdict below the photos :)

Pretty gorgeous if you ask me! It was the first from this collection to be sold out everywhere in my town, and I can't say I'm surprised :) This is without a doubt a nail polish I can use all year round, when I want to vamp it up or just be ultra glamorous for a night. Or day. It really wouldn't matter to me, because it's so beautiful!

I'm sorry about the image quality, I tried to edit some of the discoloration before blurring out the edges to make the photos look more natural! At the moment I'm trying to gather some info on how to get a great indoor photo/light setup. I know other bloggers struggle with this, so maybe I should ask them what they've found out so far. Someone on Instagram mentioned something called an ott light. Ugh, it sucks sitting around all day waiting for the sun, and when it's finally up it's so vague and dull because it's winter. First world problems! :D

Anyway I hope you're all doing well! Always feel free to drop a comment here or write to me on Instagram @nailescapades :)

See you soon<3
