Dior Makes It Easy To Be Blue
Bearing in mind its founder’s indelible words—”navy blue is the only color which can ever compete with black”—the house of Dior is celebrating shades of navy with its Fall color collection. Its Blue Tie range includes a silver Cannage compact with an eye shadow quad of shimmering sapphire, dark midnight, deep marine, and rich pewter pigment for building the perfect smoky blue eye, as well as two different blush duos and four shades of neutral lipstick. But it’s the trio of nail lacquers that we’re most excited about. Having never much cared for black varnish, navy has always been our preferred alternative for dark tips, making us fast fans of Tuxedo, a glimmering shade of the dark hue. Blue Denim offers a creamy homage to medium-blue jeans, while Dior’s existent Beige Safari provides a nude contrast that, when painted on, is like foundation for your nails. If you feel like getting a little funky, we’d suggest slicking on two coats of Beige Safari topped off with a few swipes of Tuxedo for a chic update on the French manicure. Get into it.
