Cat Crazy

Baby boy with my Charlotte Olympia kitty flats

The Husband surprised me with this vintage mug from Etsy. 
I now use it as my designated tea cup.
I almost cried when I opened it.. {Haha!}

Dior Gris Trianon

This was my first time trying a Dior nail polish, and I am very impressed! Gris Trianon is from the new Spring 2013 collection. Not only is this particular color gorgeous, but the application and formula was flawless. I don't think any other brand even comes close in comparison. This was two effortless coats. 

I think what made the most difference for me was the size of the brush. It is flat and HUGE! I was almost able to cover my entire nail in one swipe. With Essie or Chanel, it normally would take about 3 or 4 - making more room for error.

Like Chanel, these are definitely not cheap. But in my opinion, they are far better in quality. And even a few bucks cheaper I believe. Chanel does have a better selection when it comes to color, but Dior wins for everything else. I will definitely be purchasing more of these. I currently have my eye on Tutu {also from the new Spring collection - similar to Essie Fiji or French Affair}. 
I should mention that this looks super similar to Essie Chinchilly, but this is slightly lighter. Chinchilly also has some blue/purple undertones.
