NOTD – Dior Vernis Silver Purple Holiday 2009

Posted by Lipglossiping On December - 13 - 2009


A beautiful gun-metal silver/grey metallic with more than a hint of purple.

Applies beautifully with absolutely no brush marks.  Needs a top coat to achieve a great glossy finish, wear has been very good.

It’s a fabulously winter-y shade and my first Dior Polish, I’m very impressed with the quality!

What are some of your fav Dior polishes?

    I think you’ve convinced me to get this. I’ve seen it every time I go to Dior and I’m never been 100% sure I want to get it.

    I knew you’d scoop me on this! I have such a thing for purple varnish at the moment, it’s not even funny!

    Loving this colour!

    It is similar to the Lincoln Park After Midnight OPI shade.
    Dark colours look so good on short nails!!

  8. @Sirvinya – I’m really pleased I got it, it could perhaps do with a teeny touch more purple… but I adore the gun-metal grey in it too much to care.

  9. @Get_Lippie I’ve been boring everyone about the Dior Holiday Collection since the beginning of November!

  10. @Dv – Eek, that wishlist is gonna need more than one page soon! xx

    That’s such a pretty color! I don’t have time to put on any polishes right now and plus I have to buy a base coat first!

  12. kelliegonzo says:

  13. @makeupdivaa – course you can, would be delighted!

  14. Pfefi says:

    It’s also very similar to Nicole by OPI Shimmy Shimmer that Nihrida just posted about!

    What do you think? Dupe?
