Today is a sad day. The reason it is so sad is that this is my very last post sharing the Dior Summer 2015 Tie Dye Collection. There were those eyeshadows, and eye crayon, and blushes, and BB cream, and lipglosses, and lipsticks, and now, finally, there’s the Dior Summer 2015 Tie Dye Collection Nail Polish*.
There are three limited edition polishes from the Dior Summer 2015 Tie Dye Collection, and that includes two perfect summer shades, Dior Vernis Sunkissed and Sunwashed, as well as a unique Dior Vernis Top Coat Tie Dye. The Dior polish bottles are a bit smaller than average (10 mL) but super sleek. They have silver caps that are removable which makes them really easy to paint with.
Dior Vernis Sunkissed 239 is a peachy, pink nude cream that starts off a bit streaky, although 3 coats (shown) does seem to mostly even it out. Both of the Dior Summer 2015 Tie Dye Collection Nail Polish colours are white-based, which tends lead to streakier polishes, and unfortunately these aren’t immune either.
The second shade is Dior Vernis Sunwashed 319 which is the perfect lemon cream, that also was a bit sheer and streaky so I went with 3 coats. The end result was quite pretty considering how hard good yellows are to find. That said, what I really ended up loving after trying the Dior Summer 2015 Tie Dye Collection Nail Polish was two things 1) the fantastic top coat I’m about to share and 2) the BRUSHES. I swear, Dior Vernis has the perfect brush for my nails, and I am in love!
The really unique centre piece from the Dior Summer 2015 Tie Dye Collection Nail Polishes is the Dior Vernis Top Coat Tie Dye 869. It’s a sheer pink jelly polish that applies evenly, and I have seen it used in a lot of ways, but I actually haven’t yet seen it used for a traditional ombre manicure. To create this look, you simply add an extra coat as you go across your nails, so there is no top coat on my pinky, one coat on my ring finger, two on my middle finger, and then three on my index finger. Depending what base colour you use, you get a totally different effect and I especially adore the way the Dior Vernis Top Coat Tie Dye looks applied over Sunkissed. This is nail art at its easiest! I know this, because I managed it! Of course, in addition to how I’ve shown it worn, you can also build up the top coat on one nail for a gradient effect, or just use it as a transforming top coat over whatever shade you like.
What do you think of the Dior Summer 2015 Tie Dye Collection Nail Polishes? To me the standout is definitely the Tie Dye Top Coat, but I honestly just love the Dior polish brush so much I’m tempted by all of their shades now.
