The Chanel spring 2019 beauty collection is here! Inspired by the cities, streets and markets of Asia, the Chanel spring collection offers contrasts seen in everyday beauty. For the two nail polish hues, Chanel is offering a bold, neon hue and a subtle, neutral color. There is a color choice for everyone in the spring 2019 nail polish collection!

In the spring season, Chanel normally introduces three or four color choices in nail polish. For spring 2019, Chanel is offering one neutral, and one bold hue; leaving the collection simple and fresh. I purchased both colors because I love having one neutral hue, and one fun color, for the upcoming warm weather season. This nail polish collection is a ton of fun! Love!

Without further ado, I tested out both colors from Chanel’s spring 2019 collection, and here they are!

Chanel spring 2019 nail polish: Techno Bloom

Are you ready for some 1980s retro fun? Chanel Techno Bloom nail polish screams 1980s fun! It’s a bright neon nail polish which is both mature and wild. Instead of a shiny, flashy neon pink, Techno Bloom is a matte nail polish; despite the fact that it is not labelled velvet or matte on the bottle or on the box. This matte pink, neon hue is easy to wear due to it’s matte nature. The color is bright and neon, without being loud. The matte finish keeps it wearable, so you can get away with wearing neon polish at some workplaces, and for day-to-day activities. Love that!

I’m looking forward to wearing Chanel Techno Bloom nail polish this spring season. It is a fun color that plays well with spring’s color palette; since pink acts like a neutral when it comes to beauty products. This color is fun! Get ready to feel the 1980s vibes!

Techno Bloom by Chanel is a bright, neon matte nail polish. I used two coats of color; but for a brighter look, you can apply three coats. It acts like a cream polish and offers a smooth, even application. Love that!

Chanel spring 2019 nail polish: Bleached Mauve

If a neutral nail polish is what you are looking for, Chanel Bleached Mauve nail polish is perfect. I love this pinkish-beige hue. It is a chic neutral color that can easily be worn to the office, and for daily activities. This color is a workhorse, and can easily be worn throughout the season without worrying about clashing with any ensemble. It is the ideal nail polish color! I look forward to Chanel Bleached Mauve being my go-to nail polish color this spring 2019 season. It is a really pretty, feminine, and chic color. Love it!

This is a cream nail polish which applies evenly in two coats. It is easy to apply, and stays on with a solid color.

I tested out both colors with one base coat, two coats of color, and no top coat. Like most of Chanel’s nail polish hues, they are chip-resistant and streak-free. They are both fabulous! I’m excited that Chanel gave us two choices this season; one IT color, and one chic neutral. Love them!

Dior nail polish holiday 2018 Diorific collection

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!
