Every holiday season, I love seeing which colors Dior has created for the most festive time of the year. The Dior holiday 2018 nail polish collection is from the Diorific collection, and includes four fabulous colors for the holidays. I am reviewing three of those colors for you, since the fourth color is a classic red; and my favorite red of the 2018 holiday season can be seen here.

The Dior nail polish holiday 2018 collection features two festive red hues, a golden party shade, and a sweet, sparkling pink. This is a fabulous array of colors for the holiday season! The two reds, Diorific Audace and Diorific Triomphe, give you a choice of which classic holiday color to wear throughout the season. The golden hue, Diorific Promesse, is ideal for holiday parties, and New Year’s Eve. Lastly, Diorific Lively is a sweet and sparkly pink, which is perfect for winter weather; yet sparkly enough to wear to holiday celebrations. Love this!

So, without further ado, here are my three favorite colors from the Dior nail polish holiday 2018 collection!

Dior Diorific nail polish holiday 2018: Dior Audace

Dior Audace nail polish is a beautiful, deep red hue which is ideal for moving from fall into the holiday season. It is a classic color, so it will work with any color palette your wardrobe serves up. This nail polish hue can take you from right now, into the new year. Love!

I tested out Audace by Dior with one base coat, and two coats of color. It is really long lasting, yet I found it easy to remove with nail polish remover; which cannot said for most red nail polishes!

Dior Diorific nail polish holiday 2018: Dior Lively

This is my favorite color from the collection! I am not normally a pink nail polish person. I really thought the gold hue would be my favorite, but when I tested out all the colors, I fell in love with Diorific Lively. This is a medium pink with blue undertones which also features sparkles! The sparkles are not tiny bits of glitter, they are extremely dainty particles which add a festive, holiday element to an an otherwise classic pink polish.

I tested out Lively by Diorific with one base coat, and two coats of color. The polish went on smoothly, leaving a solid, streak-free color on my nails. While the Diorific application brushes bug me a little bit due their short length, it was easy to apply the polish. Lively was also quick-drying. This is something I found amazing! It dried right away, allowing me to clean up a little bit in the kitchen after polishing my nails; which is normally a big no-no in my book!

Dior Lively nail polish for the holiday 2018 season is a great everyday hue. The sparkles allow it to go from day into night; making it easy to wear to holiday soiree’s. Since pink is a classic nail polish color, Lively by Dior is also easy to wear with any color palette in your wardrobe this season. Love!

If you are looking for an easy color to wear to the office, to holidays parties, and on weekends, this is your go-to holiday hue!

Dior Diorific nail polish holiday 2018: Dior Promesse nail polish

Diorific Promesse nail polish for the holiday 2018 season is surprisingly understated! Normally when you think of gold nail polish, you imagine a bright, bold, sparkling gold which borders on gauche. Promesse by Dior is none of those things! This is a pale gold hue with particle-like sparkles. It is soft and sweet, making it easy to wear during the day. Due to it’s gold hue, I also believe this is a fabulous color for New Year’s Eve!

I tested out Diorific Promesse nail polish with one base coat and two coats of color. The polish goes on smoothly, and is not dense. I could easily have applied three coats since the polish is not opaque. If red or pink isn’t your thing, and you want something fun this holiday 2018 season, then Dior Promesse nail polish is your color!

They create a safe and strong base coat, while topping off the color with a strong gel that is long lasting, shiny, and safe to use. Love that!

Chanel holiday 2018 nail polish review

I am so excited to announce the Chanel holiday 2018 nail polish collection has arrived! The fall collection was nice, but didn’t really excite me like Chanel nail polish tends to do every season. So when the Chanel holiday 2018 beauty collection hit store shelves, I was thrilled! These colors are fabulous!!!

There are two beautiful colors in the Chanel holiday 2018 nail polish collection; Chanel Flamboyance and Chanel Opulence. One hue is a twist on a traditional Christmas color, while the other is bordering on avant-garde, love that!

Since these two nail polish colors are so pretty, I have immediately switched from fall nails to holidays nails; and plan to wear these colors throughout the entire season. They are THAT fabulous! I’m really excited about Chanel Opulence, which I feel is a great color for transitioning from fall into the holiday season. Chanel Flamboyance will be my go-to after Thanksgiving since it is the perfect color for the holiday season. I’m excited-I hope you are too!!

So, without further ado, here are the two fabulous hues from the Chanel holiday 2018 nail polish collection!

Chanel holiday 2018 nail polish: Flamboyance

How pretty is this color! Chanel Flamboyance is a classic cherry pie red with a twist. It has sparkles! Who doesn’t love sparkles during the holiday season! I wish I had the ability to post a video on my blog in order to show you how sparkly this polish really is. It’s a beautiful cherry pie red with just the right amount of  pink undertones. When mixed with the sparkles-which are much smaller than glitter bits-this polish offers a festive sophistication you will want to wear all. the. time!

I tested out Chanel Flamboyance nail polish for the 2018 holiday season with one base coat, and two coats of color. It was chip resistance, and offered a smooth, even color without any streaks. It’s beautiful! I’m not normally a red nail polish kind of gal, but this color is really pretty, and I love the sparkles; so I will definitely be rocking it after Thanksgiving for the holiday season.

Chanel holiday 2018 nail polish: Opulence

OK, Chanel Opulence is my favorite color of the two hues in Chanel’s holiday 2018 beauty collection. While I am in love with both colors, this one is beyond fabulous. I tried really hard to capture the two personalities of this color with my camera. When I photographed it straight on, the gold sheen showed up perfectly. I tried to turn my hand and find the right angle to capture the purplish-red hues in the color; which is the photo on the bottom. The photo still didn’t capture the depth of the color, but I think you can see how the polish changes color in light, or according to angle. I hope!

Chanel Opulence nail polish is a beautiful golden red hue for the holiday season. It looks different in various lights, and also at alternate angles. It’s such a fun nail polish! The golden red has both a fall vibe, and a holiday look to it; which makes it the perfect nail polish hue for transitioning from the fall 2018 season into the holiday 2018 season. Love that!

I tested out Chanel Opulence nail polish from the Chanel holiday 2018 nail polish collection with one base coat, and two coats of color. Just like most of Chanel’s longwear nail polishes, Opulence by Chanel was chip resistant and offered an even, streak-free application. It’s such a pretty polish!

I am really excited about the Chanel nail polish collection for the holiday 2018 season. It contains two fabulous colors which both serve a purpose, and are easy to wear with our current color palette.

What do you think of the two nail polish colors for the 2018 holidays from Chanel? Do you have a favorite hue?
