It’s been really warm here in Calgary, which is a blessing in January, I felt like putting some spring colours on my nails. The new colours from Dior Spring/Summer collection are perfect. I put two coats of the pastel mauve pink (#294 Lady) as the base and the delicate sprinkle mix of yellow, white and blue particles as topcoat (Blossoming).

Spring is right around the corner… although it is still snowing here in Calgary, I definitely want to put on some pastel colours on my finger tips! The new spring collection from Dior is just perfect to put you in the playful mood. It includes #204 Porcelaine icy baby blue, #457 Bouquet peachy pink and #187 the sheer pearly top coat. I got the #398 Lilac Colorvision last year before Christmas, which is still perfect for now!

Orange is the new red! It is futuristic yet simple, not too overwhelming like red, and has more attitude than pink.
It doesn’t matter if it is creamy, matte, neon or pastel – every single shade of orange looks fresh and strong!
The “chemical peach” style of pastel orange colour gives you an instant freshen-up day look. Before you put on the lipcolour, it is very important to buff the dead skin off, no one wants to have orange chappy lips! And if you are using the matte lipstick, it’s always good to put some lip balm before, so the matte colour will look smoother and last longer. Because the colour is very light, you want to dab some foundation to cover up your own lip colour before applying the lipstick, in order to show the true pastel shade. To achieve this fresh day look, just keep the rest of the face matte and clean, with only sheer highlighter on the high points (brow bones, cheek bones and bridge of the nose), finish with one coat of black mascara. Wolah! Done!
Silvery metallic nails are the perfect pair with this “chemical peach” fresh look. File your nails square and short to make the nail colour look chic.
Bright, neon orange colour is great for a night out! It brightens up the face and makes the eyes sparkle. And it is very easy to transform the day-to-night look. Again keep the face matte and fresh with only highlighter on the high points, to balance the neon lips, you can dust golden shimmery shadow on the eye lids, along with winged-out black eyeliner, finish with two coats of black mascara.
Finish the bright night-out look with a pastel orange nail colour as a contrast of the lips, or with “go big or go home” high-shine sparkle metallic nail polishes.
I really love these orange shades on my lips, I hope you enjoy yours too!
