I used Dior Minuit of this year's Christmas Collection. Minuit has a deep blood red base filled with lots of gold and red flakies. In low light, the polish has a hint of purple in it. While I absolutely love the color, I wasn't really happy with application. The formula is not too bad, just a little too sheer for such a dark color, I needed three coats for opacity. But the brush handle is a pain to use. This golden knob isn't really easy to hold, so the brush was hard to control.
The square gold studs I used are part of a nail art set from Born Pretty Store. I used a drop of clear polish to place them and secured the whole mani with one generous coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top. The studs stayed securely on the nails for two days, but then some of them fell off. I removed the mani after three days, and Minuit still looked pretty good, apart from some slight tipwear.
I wish you all a Merry Christmas, I hope you will be able to spend the holidays with friends and family, like I do.
