Dior Crème Abricot, Now Less Precious
Dior’s Crème Abricot Nail Cream ($25) has become something of a cult classic, beloved as much for its effective formula as it is for its pretty porcelain-like packaging. The rich cream, developed in 1963, conditions cuticles while nourishing nails, making them look better immediately, but actually strengthening (and growing!) them over time. The feminine jar looks great on a nightstand, which is just as well since Dior recommends rubbing the apricot-coloured salve into your fingertips before bed, but they’ve just released an on-the-go version featuring the same active ingredients in a non-oily serum form. The Huile Abricot Daily Nutritive Serum ($25), packed with argan oil, vitamin E, and apricot oil (surprise!) comes in a little plastic tube with a brush on the end making it easy to pop a drop on each nail and blend. Taking better care of your nails from the bottom up will make any manicure last longer and look better—we promise.
