dior tuxedo (blue tie)

tuxedo was a part of dior's blue tie collection for autumn 2011, so it is now a bit of a problem, although not impossible, to find it. the other two polishes are safari beige and blue denim.

the color is maybe not the most unique one in the nail polish world, but nevertheless, it is stunning. it is a deep navy blue with lighter blue shimmer, and on the egdes and under artificial lighting, it even gets a hint of a deep violet. whatever the light is, it never looks black.

when i was considering whether to get this polish, i read that there were complaints about the formula being too thick. i didn't have those problems, it is thick, but easy to work with, without streaks and completely opaque after one coat. i did the second one this time, as a force of habit and for the pictures, but i will definitely go with one coat in the future.

i used base (opi start to finish) + two layers of polish + top coat (essence better than gel nails top sealer BTGNTS)
