Twinsie Tuesday- Biggest Splurge

Happy Twinsie Tuesday Polished Babes! As the days draw closer, I am getting more excited about starting my job next Monday. I'm spending this week trying to get myself together and prepare for this new routine. I haven't worked in four years so this may be tough in the beginning. Anyway, the Twinsies are showing off our biggest splurges today! Let's take a look at mine...
Dior Minuit

I purchased this polish a long time ago and I just adore it. This is only my second time wearing it, but I am sure I will be loving it this fall. Dior Minuit is from last year's "Golden Winter" collection. It is described as "a vibrant plum based polished with fine gold glitters." I absolutely adore this polish and the formula is truly amazing!

As I stated above, the formula is amazing. It is a creme/jelly hybrid formula that doesn't skew too far in either direction. It went on effortlessly in three thin coats. Two would likely be sufficient, but I added an additional coat for the depth. The golden shimmers peek out from the plum base in just the right amounts. There are also hints of fuchsia as well.

The only minor issue I had was the length of the brush. I have large hands and fingers, so it is sometimes difficult to hold the brush properly. This goes back to the amazing formula. If the formula hadn't been so great, I would have had a mess on my hands. The polish practically applied itself, leaving mistakes and clean up to the bare minimum.

Overall, I am still in love with this polish! It is one that is a staple on my makeup/nail desk. It's too beautiful to be kept hidden away inside of a helmer. Biggest splurge. Definitely. Dior Minuit cost me $32. Yep...$32. All $32 (plus tax...hehe) of my dollars were well spent. Yes...that's quite a lot. I don't care and I surely don't regret it.

  1. Lovely fall color that is and the packaging is interesting.

  2. I don't think I've ever heard a single bad thing about this brand. And this color looks absolutely fabulous!

  3. What a gorgeous shade! I picked Dior too but it didn't come in a fancy schmancy bottle like yours!

    Thank you! I love the packaging!

    Thank you! I haven't heard anything bad about their polishes either. Perhaps this is one of the high ends that are truly different and worth the extra bucks.

    Thank you Steph! The packaging is what first drew me to this one. When I saw this color, I knew I had to have it. My other Diors come in the regular bottles though.

    This is absolutely stunning!!! I could never spend $32 though.

    Thank you Marisa! I was definitely doing a little splurge for myself at the moment. Nowhere near the norm and I haven't seen anything else that would cause me to pay it either.

  9. Beautiful! I love the bottle ( I know they don't really matter but still it is adorable!)

  10. I just love this! The bottle, the color, everything!
