Shimmering lights of silvery pink and brocade prune: these two shades propel nail lacquers into a new dimension, for a half-shadow, half-light aesthetic that is always stylish.
As the shades in Dior’s Fall 2013 campaign, Mystic Metallics, reflect the mysterious colours of the galaxy, the three new shades of Dior Vernis truly play on this half-shadow and half-light dance. From the shadowy blue of Dior’s Mystic Magnetic polish (see it here) to the soft incandescence of Destin (382) and the magical depth of Galaxie (992), you will be easily transported to the stars.
Dior Vernis Destin is described as a silvery pink, which is how it truly appears in the bottle (see above), but once applied, ranges from a pink-tinted greige to a neutral taupe with a silvery ribbon of shimmer. It is the perfect neutral, dare I say, and would be flattering for most skintones. Application and formula were a dream. The Dior Vernis brush is slightly rounded, making it easy to use and applying just the right amount of polish. Destin dried to a beautiful high shine, in great time. I used two coats over base coat for these photos.
Behold the cool sheen of Destin in the shade:
Dior Vernis Galaxie, a brocade prune with a blue-red shimmer, is the perfect counterpart to Destin… deep, mysterious, and also extremely flattering. The barely-there shimmer is most noticeable in direct light, otherwise lending depth to the polish, much like the stars do for the galaxy. The formula was even dreamier than Destin’s – it was almost a one-coater with its perfect coverage. I used two coats over base coat.
Be mesmerized by Galaxie’s depth in the shade:
Both shades would categorize as “office-appropriate,” and with formulas like these, I would venture to say they are must-haves.
