Dior Vernis in Smile & Be Dior Swatches + Review

Dior Vernis in Smile & Be Dior Swatches 2Yesterday I shared three shades from the new 2015 Dior Addict Lipstick lineup, and today I’m back with two polish shades that compliment it. There are actually 4 “It Girl” shades in the Dior Addict line and each of them have a new Dior Vernis to match. I have the Dior Vernis in Smile* and Be Dior* to share, but there are also polishes available for Tribale and Wonderful.

Dior Vernis in Smile & Be Dior SwatchesDior Vernis come in a rectangular bottle with silver cap you can remove to reveal a smaller handle to use when painting your nails. I find it quite easy to hold, and the Dior brush is easily one of my favourites. It’s fairly large and it takes about 2 swipes to apply across an entire nail. I haven’t had a dud brush yet, they all give a crisp, clean line at the cuticle.

Dior Vernis in Smile 552 SwatchesDior Vernis in Smile (552) is an orange coral with a golden sheen to it. I used 2 coats which is really very almost opaque, so I probably should have made them a bit thicker. There’s definitely more a shimmer in the bottle than on the nail, but this is a juicy, summery shade with a very shiny finish.

I don’t have the Dior Addict in Smile, but what I have gathered based on online swatches is that none of these duos is totally “matchy matchy”, it’s a similar shade that compliments the lipstick but doesn’t look like you applied the exact same thing to your lips and nails.

Dior Vernis in Be Dior 892 SwatchesDior Vernis in Be Dior (892) is a berry plum with a subtle shimmer to it. This shade is nearly opaque with 1 coat, although I went with 2 for the most even application and finish. It’s a really gorgeous berry with more visible shimmer than Smile, and it’s just perfect for fall.

I think it’s really neat that Dior launched complimentary polishes to go with their new Dior Addict Lipstick line, but even if you aren’t a fan of the lip colours maybe you will find a polish you must have! What do you think?
