According to Italian Vogue Christian Dior’s Silver Pearl No. 604 is the “it” nail-colour for the Spring 2010 season. Dior doesn’t typically release such bold metallic colours making this gun-metal hue a standout in their collection. The not quite black, not quite silver colour gives that perfect mix of edgy yet still sophisticated which will work great for spring. Dior’s Silver Pearl is one of the two Limited Edition nail polishes from Dior Spring 2010 Makeup Collection. With it’s cool tone and smokey grey silver finish it definitely shimmers in the sunlight which is why it works so well for spring. I personally wouldn’t consider this to be the usual spring look, but since I’ve been coating my nails with such dark hues like OPI’s Lincoln Park After Dark for the past several months, Dior Silver Pearl is a great transition to lighter colours this spring.

Along with partners-in-crime and fellow Tai-Tais, Maura Thompson and Natalie Firestone, she founded Sassy in 2009 and then Sassy Mama in 2011 after the birth of her daughter Elodie. Number 2 daughter Margot arrived in August 2012 and then two months later it was off to her new home in Singapore with tinies in tow.
