Dior Mandarin Orange and Rescue Beauty Lounge Liberty with Cirque Colors Galinda

In a Facebook group I'm in, we were discussing our love of Dior nail polish. Yes, they are pricier, but some colors are truly worth it! If you wear as much polish as I do, you know you have experienced some pretty terrible formulas. Well, I cannot say that for any of my Diors! So we are all posting a Dior manicure today!

This Dior actually means a lot to me. It's an older Dior that was no longer available when I got into this brand. I saw it on ebay for over $40, and I just couldn't buy it. I lusted over it, constantly searching for new auctions. Well, an amazing woman in the mentioned Facebook group SURPRISED me with it. Let me tell you, I actually let out a shriek when I opened up the package, confused what it was. The nail community is JUST so amazing.

Now the polish:Dior Mandarin Orange is a long discontinued color. It's a peachy orange with gold shimmer and flakes and it is just so stunning. I decided to pair it with Rescue Beauty Lounge Liberty, which is a pale green shimmer (and was another super lemming). It was a weird combination but I think it works. Lastly, I did a gradient using Cirque Colors Galinda, which is a satin white glitter. It was just enough not to take away from the gorgeousness of Mandarin Orange and Liberty.

There was no sun, and outside shade was turning the orange more "orangey" than it really was. Although the inside pictures are more color accurate-- I've linked Pointless Cafe's swatches of Mandarin Orange. Same goes for Liberty; the indoor photos are more color accurate.
