Seeing as I am a self-confessed nail polish addict with an edited down collection of 135 polishes, it’s surprising that until now I’d never tried any from Dior. I think it’s because I’ve always been so content with low end polishes that I never felt the need to see what the super high end brands had to offer for nails. 

I’m happy I did though. There’s definitely something different in the way that this polish applies and sits on the nails compared to even the gel textured budget polishes. The perfectly shaped brush meant I could easily paint the nails without messing up and after one coat the paint looked super glossy and opaque. I applied two coats for the sake of it but it really didn’t need it. I think it’s the gloss that really wowed me and made me see the difference in the quality of the polish. 

The shade Massaï is a sophisticated, deep red that’ll be gorgeous in the Autumn. I always thought Dior nail polish bottles were a bit too small but I actually found it really easy to hold and it’s kinda cute! 

I’m impressed. Damn… Now I’ll have to check out the other shades.

    Such a pretty shade and perfect for autumn! I’ve never tried Dior nail polishes either, I’ll have to check them out next time I’m at a Dior counter! x

    I’m totally the same about never trying the expensive brands when it comes to nail polish, because i’ve always been happy with the lower end polishes :) but this looks gorgeous on you and definitely worth checking out if the quality is as you say! Although I don’t think my bank balance will thank me if i start buying the more expensive polishes haha.

    This color looks just like my Esssie ‘twin sweater set’. With a top coat of seche vite it’s super shiny and holds forever.

    I love the Dior polishes! I have Wonderland, Aventure, Bonheur and Tra-la-la. A summer edit I suppose.

    I saw a swatch of the YSL nail polishes in Katia’s blog, and have also swatched the Este Lauder nail polishes on me, and I definitely can see the difference in them from the budget ones, butI can never justify myself if I buy one.

    That’s a lovely shade! However I’m very content with my Bourjois 1 second nail polish, they’re a nice thick consistency, long lasting and has a wide brush that makes it so easy!

    I love Dior nail polishes – they’re so underrated! I find they have the best formula out of any polish I’ve ever applied, be it budget, or other high end brands (yes, even Chanel).

    You’re right when you say this sits on the nails in a certain way. I can’t put my finger on it, but it definitely looks much nicer than a regular home-manicure. I’m a sucker for a classic red, so it’s needless to say that I love this shade.


  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/06714048031751769822 MissAnnaSparks

    Oh! That is such a gorgeous shade of red! So lovely and classic looking!


  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/05574176329404816414 Lauren S

    The shade is gorgeous, and I’ve never bought a high-end polish before as I thought the high street dupes were good enough; perhaps a christmas pressie

    Would love to try more high end nail polishes but the price just scares me so much! Would rather get a few from an affordable brand than one from a high end brand.

    this looks like such a good polish! i thought the same that, how could a high end nail varnish be that much different to a budget one but now i might have to try out the dior range!
