Last month, Julep wished me a very Happy Birthday with the…
Much like the Dior Holiday 2016 lipsticks, the Diorific Vernis nail polish have the same packaging as last year (with new updated shades). I figure if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.
What I love about the packaging the most is the top. This makes application so damn easy and, of course, it looks like a shiny Christmas bauble.
There were a few shades released this season and I was lucky enough to receive two to try. The first, 850 Splendor, is deep garnet/burgundy shade with very subtle gold shimmer.
This shade is a touch darker than a classic red but a touch lighter than a vampy burgundy. The formula is opaque in one coat and really levels off nicely. It doesn’t stain the nails either (although you should totally use a base coat).
And of course like last year, they have added a gorgeous sparkly top coat to the mix. 001 Nova is a broken mirror top coat that reflects both silver and gold and even a little bit of light blue.
This has a clear base and glitter that doesn’t sink! The shapes of the glitter are like shards of glass, so the best way to apply is by dabbing on and strategically placing. You may end up with a rogue edge here and there, so just move back into place and wait until dry.
Here is Splendor (1 coat) with Nova on top (2 coats). Wear time with this combo was at least four days with no chips or cracks. I love these together!
