I'm a Pisces and really do feel drawn to all things to all things water related. I studied in Marseille for a year and would often take a walk down to the craggy beaches of the Calanques nearby to my University accommodation. Dionysus reminds me of how the sea looked as the bright sunlight bounced off the turquoise blue of the Mediterranean. I honestly don't think my 21 year old self really appreciated how lucky I was!
The LMdB nail varnishes are 3-free and are fortified with strengthening proteins and hydrators. The bottles are very small and the brush is quite narrow. It doesn't splay like the pro-brushes that I'm used to but I experienced no difficulties in applying. The polish goes on nicely and only requires two coats. It seemed to level up the uneven surface of my nail a little to give a nice looking manicure even with my scrappy nails. It lasted well but I think some of this may be down to 'capping' the tips which I've only just learned. I did find my nails stained a little, even with Nail Envy as a base coat.
The colour and sparkle of Dionysus is spectacular. I kept admiring my nails the whole time I was wearing it and I don't think my pictures (or nails) do it sufficient justice. In terms of a dupe, the closest I have to this is Barry M Racing Green but Dionysus is definitely more 'peacock-y' in comparison.
