Dior Wonderland Nail Lacquer Review

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post for AVEENO®. I'm a 2014 AVEENO® Ambassador. All opinions are 100% my own. I received a 12 oz bottle of AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Lotion and a $100 Visa gift card for participating in the #AveenoDailyChallenge. Come with me on my three week personal journey, as I commit to activities that will help me de-stress, meditate, reflect, and take time for myself. I'll be using AVEENO® Daily Moisturizing Lotion everyday, along the way.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Challenge #14 - Dream And Find Your Personal Wonderland - Ever since I was a little girl, I've been a dreamer. I love to dream. I love to imagine. I believe dreams are our deep desires. They are things we want. Things that make us happy. Things that put a smile on our face. Things we crave. Things we hope for. As we grow older, the challenge is to take those dreams and make them real (to fulfill them). That can be challenging, depending on the desire. For today, let's just stay in WONDERLAND. What's WONDERLAND? It's your happy place! A place in your mind. A place where anything is possible and can happen. Dreaming is an excellent de-stresser and always helps me relax. Someone from Dior must've been dreaming! They recently came out with a WONDERLAND gel nail lacquer. My eyes lit up when I saw the name and color of the polish! I was like, yesss! WONDERLAND in a bottle? I'm all for it! I purchased it and thought the name was befitting for this challenge. WONDERLAND in your mind. WONDERLAND on your nails.
I really love this nail lacquer. Think strawberry pink! Think strawberry ice cream soda or float, with whip cream & a cherry on top! That's the color of Dior's Wonderland (#575) Couture Colour Gel Shine And Long Wear Nail Lacquer when applied and dried. It's the perfect spring and summer shade. You'll think you're sitting in an ice cream or candy shop. I need to learn nail art and use the Nicole by OPI chocolate polishes with this. I could make some cute little sundae nails.HaHaHa There's something magical about the color of Wonderland. When you receive it, you'll think you ordered the wrong nail lacquer, because the pink is lighter in the bottle, than pictured on Dior's website (and even my pictures...my pictures show what it looks like dried). My first thought, was like ohhh...whoahhh...this might not work. HaHaHa It looks neon pink in the bottle. Well I applied it, and low & behold it turned out gorgeous. It darkens after applied and dried. It also gives off a fabulous shine. There are a couple of hiccups. The long-wear part? I couldn't find out how long Dior claimed it would last, but the wear time was 4-5 days for me (which is normal in my book). The brush is pretty wide and holds a lot of product (that didn't bother me, but some nail-istas may find it to be an issue). Neither were problematic for me or stopped me from loving it. Just when you think you've tried every PINK imaginable, another fabulous one comes out. Dior did an excellent job with this. You'll want to add Wonderland to your collection, if you're a fan of pink or Alice in Wonderland (or BOTH! HaHaHa). It's gorgeous and I think it would look fabulous on every skin tone. Not all pinks do. 
Sweet-Bittersweet-NotSweet

  5. I'm a huge fan of the Alice in Wonderland movie by Tim Burton, so this is right up my alley. Great review, Kim. :) The colour looks gorgeous on you. I love that the colour goes darker after awhile.

  6. You are absolutely right Kim. As we get older it's important to try to make our dreams (or at least some of them!)come true. I'm often disappointed by shades of pink as they are often too bright or too pale. This one looks like my kind of colour and perfect for summer. As I was reading the post I was admiring your cute book too.

  7. If we didn't have our dreams, we'd be lost. They guide us if we listen to what they are trying to say. My head is in the clouds like 24/7...dreamer for life, haha. Love Alice in Wonderland and all those kinds of things, this is quite a gorgeous shade of pink really. I like it & I think it would look good on any skin tone as well. Super review doll :) xx

  26. When at night I kiss my princess good night, I always tell her about the wonders she's going to find in the secret garden of her dreams. This nail polish will be featured in mine. I have an almost identical shade whose brand now I don't recall, it's time to take it out for a ride!!

  28. This shade of pink is so fun and lovely. Looks great on you Kim. There are so many dreams I wish I could accomplish them all. And there are things I am daydreaming about knowing it probably will never happen but it is fun to do that at times.

  29. What a beautiful shade! I love Dior nail polishes; I actually like the wider brush better. It looks great on you! Glad that there are other dreamers out there. Dreams are what keeps us going and hoping :)

  41. This is such a fun edit. Haha Kim in Wonderland! I can't believe you have a personal vintage comic. That is so sweet. I love the Dior nail varnish packaging, but I think they're a bit funny in the sense that the square top doesn't twizzle off itself, but you have to pop that bit off first and then unscrew. Wonderland looks like a beautiful shade. I love the little moving pics (I know you have called them gifs before -see, I do read!- but I'm not tecchy enough to let myself call them that) because I think the shade translates so much better than in an ordinary photo.

    Haha snackopoly is great! Before I visited your link I thought it was like a chocolate monopoly that you could eat as you played. There might be something unhygienic in that, I guess.

    Feel like I haven't spoken to you in a while. Hope you're having a lovely week! Rosemary x

    ReplyDelete
  61. seriously, a company needs to come out with a polish that lasts forever...or at least longer than a week for lazy people like me! i just put on OPI night before easter, and after a couple handwashings easter morning, it was all chipped! i don't have time to do my nails often, so i need a polish with staying power.

    ReplyDelete
  62. oh, went off on a tangent, lol...meant to say i like the color! for some reason, like with lipstick, pinks are much easier for me to wear than reds. i can never have too many pinks.

  65. such a cute post. I love to dream. I used to do it more. But, sometimes, as an adult, it gets tougher to dream as I did as a kid. Regardless, I love the concept of being able to dream as I once did. =)

  72. I'm so glad you added the end note coz the only question I had in my mind while reading this post was to ask you about the Alice in Wonderland backdrop. I love the vintage feel of it.

    Dreams... what would we be without them? I'm a dreamer too. High 5!
