Last week, I promised you a Chanel manicure for today, but I am going to have to make a slight detour. But, hey, it’s Dior so we’re practically talking about cousins here!

As a collector – and fan of blue nail polish – I am still sad that I missed out on previous Chanel “it” colours like Nouvelle Vague and Riva, but – c’est la vie! Philosophical resignation aside, I was super thrilled to at least get a second chance at a Dior “it” colour that was also a limited (and sold out) edition last summer: St. Tropez. Similar to Nouvelle Vague, this one is a gorgeous, saturated colour in the Tiffany blue family. A perfect summer polish! Isn’t it to die for?

Application was super smooth and easy; the Dior formula goes on like buttah. Two coats, and you’re done! St. Tropez was available at Holt Renfrew, as of a couple of weeks ago, but this is one polish you should grab quickly – it will probably sell out fast.
I really wanted to make the most of that beautiful aqua colour, so I decided to make it pop by pairing it with a contrasting colour in my outfit. Purple-aqua combinations are a stand-out for me. I took a further risk by mixing my prints. The black waistband on the skirt breaks up the patterns so they don’t fight too much, and the black jacket anchors the outfit.

Happy Friday!
