Macys Summer Exclusive: Dior Grenade
Just when you thought three limited edition polishes wasn't enough this summer, Dior's springs an four addition as a Macy's summer exclusive. Now that you've seen Michelle's preview of Sweet Orange from the Cristal Collection, I'm bringing you some good ole Grenade.
Click here to see another one of Dior's releases, Purple Candy.
Described as a vibrant hot pink with extremely fine shimmer of blueish - purple, hot pinkish - red and silver. Although, you've only see the various colors of shimmer in the sunlight.
If you look real close at the second picture (yes, bring your head directly to the screen, I know we all do that LOL) you can see the blueish purple.
The application was just perfect and only required two coats for coverage. However, I used three coats for my swatches because the more shimmer the better.
Grenade is only available at Dior counters at Macy's. As far as I know, each counter only received about four bottles or so. Grenade should be available in April.

Only four bottles a counter!!! Dang! I hate that - this means I'll be running around all over trying to nab this one. I understand they don't want left over stock...but 4 bottles? Come on! This normally isn't my shade...but this looks so fun for summer. Plus I love Dior's formula.

Reminds me of Zoya's Kiki. Hmm... I admit it sorta hurts my eyes, keke.

It's hard to find a pink nail polish that pops but wow this one really does, it's stunning!

I went to Nordstrom to see if they are going to carry Bubble Gum or Purple Candy and imagine my surprise when the consultant said all she had was Paprika-a light shimmery pink- that no one else has! Why does Dior not give any heads up like Chanel does?

Hi Katy, I know, right - only four bottles? I completely agree! Dior's formula is outstanding and the same goes with this one. :) Hi Tiffany, It's definitely a brighter hot pink :) Tessi, This one certainly pops! I dig it :) Hi Debby, I just noticed Paprika on Nordies site just last week but haven't had a chance to see in real life? How did you like it? So, we have a Sephora, Nordies, Macy and Dior's exclusive this summer. Think we might need more :)

It looked really pretty in real life. It has a really pigmented pink and you can tell it's frosty, not just shimmery( if that makes sense ).

I don't know about Grenade, but I purchased Paprika a few weeks ago, the colour is about the same as Grenade, but I believe the shimmer in Pakrika is even finer than Grenade. The colour is gorgeous though!
