WATCH: The Barely-There Nail Polish Shade For the Girl Who Does Not Want To Wear Color
Just as there are girls who can't leave the house without red lipstick and girls who only wear old-school chapstick, nail polish preferences vary from person to person. Bright manicures aren't for everyone, and sometimes a barely there color is all you need. If you want your nails to look polished without a colorful polish, this is the product you need. For healthy, shiny nails that aren't covered in color, Dior Nail Glow is the only way to go.
Even if you're a girl who prefers color, if you ever feel like your nails need to "breathe" and take a break from constant polish changes or gel manicures, Dior Nail Glow comes to the rescue. Though it looks like a bright magenta polish in the bottle, it goes on completely sheer. Dior Nail glow promises to "enhance the color of your natural nails," which is exactly what we want in a barely there look. The slight pink tint of the polish is supposed to make the pinks of your nails pinker and the whites whiter. Even better, you don't need a base or top coat with Nail Glow. One or two swipes of Nail Glow and you're done, which makes it perfect for those in-between manicure times. If your polish job is on its last leg but you don't have time to get to the salon or give yourself a mani, instead of letting it chip away into a stubby mess, take it off and get out your Nail Glow. The beauty of Nail Glow is that your nails don't look dull and un-polished; they look like your natural, bare nails got treated to a spa day. Dior Nail Glow is for your nails what a great lightweight tinted moisturizer is for your skin—it still looks natural but refreshed. Dior Nail Glow does exactly what beauty products are supposed to do: It enhances your natural beauty instead of covering it up. We'll admit, it's a bit of a splurge for nail polish, but it's a safe investment to make.
