We finally have some sparkle! Yes!! The Dior nail polish summer 2022 collection has three beautiful nail polish colors, and two of them have sparkles! I love sparkling nail polish, it has so much more dimension than cream polish. Love!

The summer 2022 Dior nail polish collection offers a bright coral hue with Dior Bayadere, a vivid sparkling pink with Dior Riviera, and a chic golden tan with Dior Golden Hour. There is something for everyone in this small yet perfect summer nail polish collection.

So, without further ado, here are the three beautiful nail polish colors from Dior for summer 2022! All three nail polish colors were tested with one base coat, and two coats of color.

Dior nail polish summer 2022 | Dior Bayadere

dior bayadere nail polish summer 2022 review

Dior Bayadere nail polish is a bright and cheery coral with an orange-red base for the summer 2022 season. This is a cream nail polish which glides on smoothly and provides the perfect color saturation on your nails in two coats. If sparkles aren’t your thing, this is the summer nail polish for you!

Dior nail polish summer 2022 | Dior Riviera

How pretty is this vivid pink from Dior for the summer season? Love! Dior Riviera is a vivid pink hue with sparkles. It shimmers in the sunlight and offers beautiful color saturation in two coats. I am not normally a pink person, but this one is fabulous. I am looking forward to rocking Dior Riviera this summer. If you work in a conservative environment, this might be borderline, but you should be able to get away with it!

Dior nail polish summer 2022 | Dior Golden Hour

J’Adore Dior! This is my favorite color from the Dior summer 2022 nail polish collection. I love the golden tan hue of this polish. Dior Golden Hour also offers really nice color saturation in two coats. It too has sparkles, and Golden Hour by Dior evokes a warm summer beach vibe. Love! I am wearing this nail polish as I type my review!

Well, there you have it! Three beautiful nail polish colors for the summer 2022 from Dior. I am really happy with this collection and I look forward to wearing these colors this summer season. Which color from the Dior summer 2022 nail polish collection is your favorite?

BAF Weekly IT List

spring street style trends

BAF Weekly IT List from top right: blazer vest / small convertible handbag / spring nail polish / casual dress (under $50) / eye shadow quad / small top handle bag / slingback heels / classic satchel /

The weather is heating up! This means freshening up our wardrobes with lighter pieces so we can get through these warmer days. This lightweight dress is perfect as we move into summer temperatures. It can be worn casually with sandals or sneakers, or dressed up with flats or a low heel. It also comes in tons of colors! I am picking up another one for the summer season. Love this dress!

There are so many handbag trends this year, it can be overwhelming and hard to keep up! You can jump on the early 2000s bandwagon and pull a bag out from your archives, or go for a small bag such as this convertible handbag or this fabulous IT bag by Balenciaga. Of course, a classic satchel which has been on department stores best seller list for over a decade is always fabulous too.

One of my favorite trends in the late 1990s was the blazer vest. I am so glad it’s back! This is a great alternative to a blazer on hot summer days, plus, it can elevate a pair of jeans or a denim skirt on casual days. I am thinking of snapping another one up in a fun color for the summer. Black is perfect to start. Love!

The 2000s bag trends that are hot now

2000s bag trends hot summer 2022

Remember those bags you coveted back in the early 2000s? They’re back! So crawl into the back of your closet and pull out your archives, because they are hotter than hot this year!

There are a few late 1990s, and early 2000s IT bags which are back with a vengeance this year, in addition to overall handbag trends. Remember the Balenciaga City Tote aka “moto bag?” It’s back, and if you cannot get your hands on a vintage one, Balenciaga has a new version with slightly inverted sides you can purchase now, and rock as if it were the original.

Remember the Dior Saddle bag? It has been popular again for the past few seasons, and it is holding steady as an IT bag to own now. If you don’t have one from back in the day, Dior has a few sizes, colors, and fabrications to choose from today. The common complaint I hear from Saddle bag owners is that everything in the bag falls to one side, if you don’t mind that, this could be your bag.

In addition to specific IT bags from close to twenty years ago, the early 2000s gave us several handbag trends which are hot again this year. Remember oversize handbags you could carry a small child inside? They are back, and the hottest one on the streets this year is from YSL. See above graphic.

The other trends to watch for include nylon bags from Prada, Bowler bags (I love Dior’s version), all types and sizes of hobos bags, baguettes (doesn’t have to be Fendi), classic Chanel bags (think flap and 2.55), and the Chloe Marcie in any style; saddle or satchel. Love!

What was your favorite handbag trend from the very late 1990s and early 2000s? My favorites include the baguette, Chloe Marcie, hobo bags, and nylon bags.

Quick shout-out to nylon bags; they can be worn in the rain! Love a bag I don’t have to worry about during inclement weather.
