Ooooh! I have been playing with the beautiful limited edition nails colours from Dior at Harrods and have even been a bit brave with some nail art!! I must be feeling inspired!
This is my attempt at a half moon manicure using the fabulous Dior Vernis in Windsor 807.

It is a seriously gorgeous dark metallic grey-black – check out the expensive looking shimmer to it.

I am not entirely sure about my talents with the half manicure but I was desperate to see what Dior Vernis Windsor 807 would look like with its sister Limited Edition shade Dior Vernis Dioling 258. They make such a stunning couple.
So the base shade is Dior Vernis Diorling 258 which is probably my favourite nude ever!! If you would like to see that one better, check it out all on its own HERE. It has just zoomed its way up into my all time faves list at a ‘0-100 mph’ pace!!
For the half moon, I had a bit of coaching on twitter from the lovely nail artist Paige McDonagh. As I didn’t have any hole reinforcer stickers which apparently work a treat, Paige suggested “rest your elbows on a table while doing it and use your little finger as an anchor next to the finger you’re painting”.
This worked well but then I realised that there was no way I’d be able to do it with my left hand!! So I actually ended up cutting slithers of sellotape to cover the half moon area before painting. I peeled it off after one coat while it was still wet.
Dior Vernis in Windsor 807 gives the most amazing coverage in just one coat, so this will be a real winner when it comes to getting gorgeous nails fast. There is no top coat in the photo.
The Dior Vernis in Windsor 807 is a Harrods exclusive for Spring 2013. It costs £18. Don’t forget you can get a free Dior Manicure with 2 purchases from Dior cosmetics at Harrods until April 14th 2013.
