    You're Paying for the Name

    I bought Dior's deepest purple because it was beautiful in the bottle. However, on my nails, it just looked like black. The polish didn't wear any better than less expensive brands, so I knew I was just paying to have a bottle in my bag that said "Dior". I have enough expensive cosmetics that I don't need overpriced nail polish. If the color is TRULY one-of-a-kind, then, yes, I can't resist. But this wasn't it. I took it back and got something else at Neiman's.

    #226 Timeless Gold

    First of all, I would call this color a little more of a pewter than a gold, as it seems to be a mix of gold and silver. That being said, I really loved this polish very much. This was my first Dior Vernis, and most other brands of polish tend to chip off very easily for me, but not this one. I could genuinely get at least a good 5 days of solid wear out of this polish (can't say as much for most moreother brands of polish). This particular color was gorgeous (alas, it was a limited edition holiday 2010 color). I will probably buy another Dior Vernis, however, I will really miss Timeless Gold as I'm pretty sure they won't have it now that it's May 2011!

    #219 Nude Chic

    I so wanted this to be a new classic in my polish collection. i hate going for trend colors, but the new Dior display of Parisian Spring made me buy #219, Nude Chic. I don't know if it's the color (one of the most true nudes i've seen) or it's the formulation, but i don't feel like wasting another $20 to find out. the polish acts like it's a few years old, sticky & stringy. it goes on streaky moreand thick. again, maybe it's the color, maybe it's the formula, but i suspect a little of both. then again i've worn $3 matte purple and haven't had the problem of applying coat after coat just to cover up the last one's streaks. the brush is good and i know how to do a great swipe job so it's not the application. it takes long to dry too. i used it with and without a base coat, getting the same results each time. i kept crossing my fingers that it would self-level, but it didn't. if you really want to waste money on a polish (cuz let's face it, $20 IS a waste) then go for Chanel instead. my experience with their Black Satin color was a lot better. still didn't last that long but the formula was great. If crazy colors are your thing, try Illamasqua.

    my favorite color

    This blue is my absolute favorite. I wish I could wear it all the time, but alas it's dark for where I work. However, I wear it the rest of the time. I'm sure I will cry when I run out, as I believe it has been discontinued. tear.

    A beautiful navy blue

    I was a bit leery about the price, but when my sweetheart bought it for me, I was certainly happy to try it out. First of all, the application was very nice. It went on smoothly, and evenly, and provided nice, even coverage in two coats. I used Orly Bonder base coat, and Seche Vite top coat, and this polish wore like iron for me. I mistreat my manicures quite a bit, and this one stayed through moreaps of abuse. The color is a lovely creamy navy, with just the tiniest bit of shimmer that only shows up in full sunlight. The only reason this dropped to 8 stars is the price. If this were half the price, and the same quality, it would be a 10 star product.
