The hyped nail polish from the Dior Croisette 2012 Summer collection is definitely Saint-Tropez but I think Bikini is the dark horse of the collection. Personally I think Bikini is the perfect colour that would suit everyone.
At first I thought I would easily have a similar colour in my collection. I pulled out three polishes and compared them next to Bikini, and found that I didn't actually have a dupe.
Riviera is an opaque creamy pastel coral with no shimmer. I have found it suits as a pedicure colour as well as for manicures.
The first comparison is between Bikini & Riviera. You can see how bright Riviera is compared to the subtle and pastel Bikini.
Next is against Chanel Miami Peach. Miami Peach has more of a pink tinge and again is not as milky coloured. Miami Peach also has shimmers whereas Bikini is a solid cream colour.
Last is with Essie's Chubby Cheeks. This was actually the closest match, but Chubby Cheeks is more vibrant with more orange.
I have really enjoyed painting my nails with these summer nail polishes from Dior. Having finally mastered the Dior Vernis brush, I now actually much prefer it to standard nail polish brushes.
Bikini is the colour I'd recommend to everyone.
