Each season I eagerly await Diors nail polish releases. The colours are always on trend and the formula just sublime. As always spring did not disappoint, with Dior releasing 4 new gorgeous colours ranging from an elegant mauve pink, a bright orchid pink to a nude girlie, confetti top coat! There was something for everyone.
I was sent two for review and picked up Majesty as it was too pretty to pass up. Here’s Majesty, Lady & Eclosion. So perfectly spring!
Majesty is a light warm peach in a cream finish. I like that it has a heavy white base that gives this colour a very fresh ‘sorbet’ look , something I don’t often see in Dior except during spring I believe, like last years baby blue, 204 Porcelaine.
The consistency of this was perfect. Not too runny or too thick and two coats delivers a nice even finish. Wear wise I couldn’t complain either, this nail swatch was taken three days after application and there’s zero tip wear! In fact i’m straining to find something that’s off with this polish but I really cant! It’s sublime.
On to Lady, a medium, muted mauve pink in a cream finish. I found this particular shade to have a slightly thicker consistency which resulted in visible ridges and unevenness once the second coat was applied. A top coat always masks this problem so I didn’t think of it as soo much of a deal breaker.
If you are looking for a slightly cooler toned nude for transitioning to spring. This is it.
Eclosion is a clear top coat containing ‘micro confetti’ in yellow, blue and white. Such a perfect, cheery polish for spring!
Personally I find these confetti type top coats very hard to apply, as it’s difficult to get a uniform distribution of particles. This was actually my second attempt applying the top coat and I feel I did a better job. There were less bubbles and a more pleasing distribution of confetti without being ott.
Here’re a few other similar polishes I rounded up for comparison. I hope you find them useful.
*All swatches seen above are with 3 coats for maximum opacity.
The newly reformulated (since summer 2014) Dior polishes have an exceptionally long wear time. They are very chip resistant and glossy even without a top coat, which I think is linked to their new gel technology. I also love, love, love the brush too, the new brush is more even and perfectly rounded at the edge that it allows a very neat application following the base of the nail closely, so you get a perfect oval. These are basically a nail polish lovers dream. Hence why I own so many.
This collection of nail lacquers or ‘vernis‘ are part of Diors Limited Edition Spring release, which means they are only here till stocks last. So get them while you can.
*Already available at Dior counters, Dior Boutiques as well as Sephora. Each retailing at SGD 38.
