Dior Frimas – Holiday 2013

PurchasedMyself

 

 

It is such a beautiful day today! It’s not that hot, it’s sunny and just beautiful. I woke up today with the intention to swatch a bunch of polishes, but I ended up getting stuck watching a bunch of dumb movies. Instead, I have only swatched one polish and boy is it pretty. Let me show you Dior Frimas from the Limited Edition Holiday Collection.

Dior FrimasGet a load of the beautiful packaging. I’m a sucker for beautiful packaging and containers so I was drooling over these pretty bottles.

Dior Frimas 1Dior Frimas 2Dior Frimas 3Dior Frimas is a limited edition polish from this year’s Holiday Collection. This polish is basically a neutral on crack. That beautiful gold shimmer really takes it up a notch and keeps it from being just plain old beige. The formula on this polish felt a little strange because the shimmer makes it feel grainy. The graininess of the polish makes the formula a little thick but also easy to control. Despite the thickness of the formula, it feels a little sheer so I had to apply three thin coats for full coverage. As far as dupes, I think that China Glaze Fast Track is a similar polish because of the gold shimmer and neutral base, but Frimas is a little more golden/rose.

Overall, I really like this polish but what really kills me about this polish is the beautiful bottle. The curse of the Limited Edition status always gets me too. Is it worth $26 for a .4oz bottle? To most people, probably not, but it’s worth it to me because 1) I am a polish collector/hoarder 2) It’s LE!!! 3) I love Dior! One thing I do want to mention is that if you love the Dior rounded brush, you will be disappointed because the brush on this polish is thin and square. It’s not terrible, but it’s not great. I did manage to super splurge and also purchased Minuit so that one will be on the blog tomorrow. Thanks so much for the visit, and I will talk to you soon.

    It’s a pretty color. I have Orly Nite Owl, and the colors are pretty close.

    I freakin’ love this. Freakin’ LOVE. But my cheap, cheap, stingy soul will not pay $24 for polish. Nope-ity Nope. Haha! So I will have to find a dupe.

    1. You have the most gorgeous nails and they always looks amazing!
    2. This reminds me very much of one of my favorites – butter London All Hail the Queen. It also looks sorta like Orly Nite Owl and Essie Mochaccino…amirite? 😉

    I guess what kills everyone here IS the bottle in the first place. 🙂

    I really like this color – it reminds me of Essie’s Mochacino, although I know that Mochacino has silvery specks, not gold. Such a cute bottle!!

    I would not have known that was a polish just looking at the bottle. Wow what an interesting bottle!

    Well, I am all mixed up…I thought I already commented on this, and now I’ve commented on Minuit before this one!
    Anyway, I’m feeling kind of the same about this one as I did about Minuit: the bottle is cute, but I’m mostly ‘meh’. A few people have mentioned Orly Nite Owl and I do have that one and like it, so maybe I’d like it more in practice.
