Dior Lilac Colorvision Swatch and Review - Pastel Zebra Nail Art for Digit-al Dozen and The Nail Challenge Collaborative

Hello!! How's your Monday going? I had a super busy weekend, so of course my challenge manis this week are being done the day of. Oh wait...I always do that :P

This week The Digit-al Dozen group strikes again with "Animal Week". Oddly, I didn't have any trouble coming up with ideas for this week and I'm looking forward to showing you! I have also picked back up with my Nail Challenge Collaborative group, and we've decided to do 4 manis each month that follow a theme. This month is "pastels". Lo and behold!! The pastel animal print is today's manicure. Love it when I can get two for one. hehe.


 I chose the amazing Dior Lilac Colorvision as my base, which I picked up at Sephora.com. I used 2-3 coats (2 thick coats or 3 thin) and it went on flawlessly and dried to a high gloss.

 Then I painted a Dior Tutu stripe down the middle. I needed two coats.
 The above and below photos are without top coat after I painted on the black zebra stripes with a small nail art brush using Dior Untitled Black.

 And finally, the rest of the photos are the final version, with Seche Vite top coat.



This is actually the first time the zebra print has made its way to my blog!! Needs some practice, but not bad for a first try! Definitely liking how this turned out. What do you think?

XO, Victoria

  2. This is a really cool look, I've never seen anything like it. I love the print and how you just put it on top of the stripe. I'm going to have to try that!

  4. Very pretty! Even though it's animal print, it's still kind of subtle because of the pastels... *like*

  7. This looks tottally fantastic! Although I can't say I dislike your accent nail, I think the whole mani would've looked even more impressive if you'd kept all nails the same - but that's just me and my humble opinion ;) love it to bits still! :D
