Dior's Summer Mix Collection

Excellent and thorough discussion on yesterday's post! I learned a lot from you ladies. Thanks for chiming in on that topic :)

Well Dior has surely made my heart skip a beat with their 2012 Summer Mix Collection! It's COLORFUL! It's BOLD! It's FUN!

It features nail colors in Lagoon (Blue), Cosmo (Pink), Calypso (Red), Acapulco (Yellow) and lip gloss shades in Red Cruise (Red), Pink Bikini (Pink), Orange Pareo (Orange) and Gold Sunrise (Yellow). For some reason I'm drawn to the yellow nail color. I also want a pair of yellow J Crew ballet flats but that is another story! HaHa

The ad campaign and video features Julia Hafstrom. The song in the video is the oh-so-candy-filled-sweet-and-addicting "I Want Candy" by the 80's group Bow Wow Wow. Do you know I just found out they were not the originators of the song!?! It was actually a group called The Strangeloves. You learn something new each and everyday I tell ya.

WARNING! The video below is SWEET overload!
I want the nail polish, lip glosses AND some candy! LOL Dior's Marketing Team is so wrong for this TEMPTATION!
So what are your thoughts on this collection? Would you wear these colors?

A Little Lagniappe:

I'm guest posting over on Lindsay's Blog Black and Blonde! 

She's getting married! Go Lindsay!

So stop by and say Congratulations! 

She has a very informative blog :)

Have a Great Day Everybody!


  1. Those colours are delicious, they remind me of those long ice lollies I used to get as a kid. They were so good :))) xx

  2. I have a really similar color to Calypso on my nails now and it was less than $1! I'm way too cheap to spend a lot of money on nail polish :)

  3. Colors are gorgeous, though a little bit too sweet for me. It's been awhile.

  25. The colors are totally amazing. As for Dior polish, I have never bought any (yet) but I tried some at Sephora and was so shocked at how amazing they are! 1 coat was like 3 coats of OPI and it dried quickly!!
