Dior Le Vernis Spring 2013

April 28, 2013

I’ve been quite successful at staying away from the Dior roadshow… until this week!  Their juicy Spring 2013 colors have been calling out to me every time I step into a mall, and they finally smacked me in the face (literally, I walked into 1 of those display cases at Takashimaya!!!) so I had *no choice*…  ;P

For Spring 2013, Dior has launched 4 gorgeous nail polishes – Princess (girly pink), Spring Ball (soft nude), Delice (racy coral), and Diablotine (fiery red).  To create the perfect glossy effect for your nails, Dior has  introduced the Gel Coat, which mimics the curvature and gleam of a gel manicure.  There is also a matching lip color for each of these shades for the ultimate matchy-matchy!

I had the opportunity to experience Dior Le Vernis via a complimentary express manicure, and chose Diablotine.  And I must say, I’m totally, and utterly in luuurrvvee!  On its own, Diablotine is a wonderful, sparkling cool red on my nails, brightening up my hands tremendously.  When topped with Dior’s latest gel coat, it leaves a shimmery, holographic effect that is so much fun to look at!

I love this nail polish so much, that it is with incredible sadness that I have to report that they don’t last….!  Ok, i’m incredibly rough with my fingers, but these take the cake!  Within hours of application, i managed to rub off a portion of the polish from my thumb whilst trying to rip open some plastic packaging.  And overnight, I found the polish had worn off the edges of my tips (hence the horrid photos)!  The gel effect of the topcoat also disappeared within 24hrs.  :'(

Perhaps a good way to experience these Dior Le Vernis for yourself is to take advantage of the current promotion going on during their roadshow.  Buy any one of the Dior Addict lip gloss, and receive a free mini Le Vernis and enjoy a complimentary express manicure!  The next stop for the roadshow is Paragon from 29 April to 3 May, so hurry down and check out these lovelies for yourself!
