Dior Liquorice (Réglisse 972)

Hi everyone! Today I'm linking up with some lovely ladies and we are all doing some Dior manis! 
I don't have many Diors but I knew I wanted to join in and it seemed like a great occasion to get this beauty out of my untrieds!

This is Dior Liquorice (Réglisse 972), a now discontinued and hard to find shade (I know...sorry!) which can be a little pricey on Ebay. I am so lucky to own this thanks to my friend Kim from The Ides of Polish who found it for me.

I only own 2 Dior polishes but I am SO glad this is one of them. It is exactly my sort of colour.

Liquorice is a dark purple full of shimmer. The shimmer is as visible on the nail as in the bottle. I just love this on my nails. I used 2 coats for perfect opacity and found the formula really nice to work with. No application issues whatsoever.

I decided only to add an accent nail to avoid covering up this stunner (anyone else feel like that with HTF polishes?). I chose to create an embellished accent nail using tiny brown/bronze microbeads and some pink crystals, which I placed individually onto my nail to create a design at the cuticle.

I really love how this turned out. It feels like jewellery for my nail! 

What do you think of this mani? What is your favourite Dior polish? I feel like I could do with adding a few more to my collection probably starting with Perlé after seeing this post by my friend Sheila at Pointless Café

I am looking forward to seeing all the lovely Dior manicures today and I'm sure I'll find some to add to my wishlist!
