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!

  3. Dv says:

    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!

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

    What do you think? Dupe?
