What makes a sticker a couture sticker, you ask? When it has a CD logo on it, of course.

Since our first xoVain/xoJane beauty crossover experiment went so well, I decided to go back to the well for another installment, also starring Olivia and DaMonica. (I’m trying to think of a good portmanteau for them: Olmonica? DaLivia? Vote in the comments.) 

This time, the nail experiment was extra fancy: Dior Manucure Transat Nail Polish And Couture Stickers Duo, from Dior’s summer beauty collection.

What makes a sticker a couture sticker, you ask? When it has a CD logo on it, of course.

Each kit contains one nail polish, in either Captain (cherry red), Yacht (a chic greige), or Sailor (bright blue; the one I wanted most, but Dior has been sold out of it since Manucure Transat launched). Also, 12 clear nail stickers adorned with nautical stripes and CDs, and a very chic Dior nail file.

Back to the nail stickers for a second: Have you ever had much success with those? When Minx first came out, I had a great experience wearing them and they lasted a surprisingly long time (nearly two weeks), but only because I had them applied by a Minx nail tech. I have never attempted to apply a nail sticker on my own. That’s where Olmonica comes in! They try these things so I don’t have to. Here, the review!

Olivia:

What is the name of the color you're wearing?

“I'm wearing Yacht, because that is what I'll be spending the summer on.”

What does the color make you think of?

“The type of money you don't talk about--not because it's illegal, but because there is just so much of it.”

How easy/difficult was it to apply the Dior logo sticker?

“It was really easy, but it didn't look great. I wish it stretched more so there were not as many bubbles.”

Any additional thoughts about Dior, nail stickers, or luxury brands, in general?

“I mean, I love luxury brands. I hate to say it, because the punk inside me screams every time I contemplate a major purchase, but those brands are highly regarded not only in style but in quality, so I don't feel bad buying them.”

DaMonica:

What is the name of the color you’re wearing?

“It's called Captain."

What does the color make you think of?

“Apples and red lipstick.”

How easy/difficult was it to apply the Dior logo sticker?

“It was a bit tough, only because I have tiny nail beds and the stickers are sized a bit larger than mine. Hence, I'm only wearing the two that could fit. Also, you have to be very careful because the stickers form bubbles as soon as it hits the nail. Maybe because the stickers are transparent?”

Any additional thoughts about Dior, nail stickers, or luxury brands, in general?

“I've used nail stickers in the past, and I've always had a hard time removing them, but these were easy to peel off. I'm not sure if that's a good or bad thing.”

What's your take on nail stickers, fancy or otherwise? And should it be Olmonica or DaLivia?
