This little gem was conceived by Dior in 1963, and I'm sure Brigitte Bardot used it way back then in order to stay supremely French to the tips of her toes...
I find my nails rebel during the summer months. They are soft, weak, breakable, not to mention horribly dry (especially my toenails). Dior's Crème Abricot, or to give it its stultifyingly dull English name, Nail Fortifying Cream, is a fabulous product to be used extremely sparingly and if possible overnight. It sinks in quickly, immediately hydrating your nails and works its magic overnight leaving your extremities in tip-top shape for the next day by strengthening nails, conditioning your cuticles and encouraging growth. I'm really not usually that keen on designer-brand products as they rarely give you much bang for your buck. This peach-coloured beauty is an exception.
