Dior Vernis #585 Poppy Pink

April 6, 2015

Happy Mani-Monday, my loves!  I’m very excited today to be able to give you a preview of something special that is launching very soon!  Every Spring, Dior releases a very special collection just for the Japanese market, and this year we will be launching them in May at Dior Backstage Boutiques in Singapore!  I have a few items from the collection to show you, starting with 1 of the 2 nail polishes – Dior Vernis #585 Poppy Pink!

Dior Vernis 585 Poppy Pink

Dior Vernis #585 Poppy Pink is an interesting shade that is completely beguiling inspite of its name.  It is a medium warm-toned mauve that pulls slightly caramel against my skin tone.  It is one of those lovely cream formulas that I simply adore from Dior, and is nicely opaque in 2 coats.

The swatch above is 2 coats with 1 base coat, and no top coat.  The finish is not as shiny as I like, and I find that adding Dior’s Gel Coat over helped to level out the polish and give it a more professional finish as you can see from the swatch below.

Dior Vernis 585 Poppy Pink is neither an eye-popping hue nor pink.  If I were to decide simply based on name, I’d have thought this to be a fuchsia or neon pink of some sort.  Thankfully, it is a very classy and elegant mauve that is very wearable for all occasions.  Dior Vernis 585 Poppy Pink is limited edition and will be out at Dior Backstage Boutiques in May!

Will you be adding this to your collection?
