Lipgloss for the Nails: Dior Sparkling Shine

nail polish swatches and review

The new “Addict” polishes from Dior are so unbelievably juicy. I first tried them at their top-secret launch in Paris earlier in the year (you can read about that trip here) but have only just got around to having a proper test.

In the photograph I’m wearing Spring Ball, shade number 343. It’s a sparkly, corally pink that could be a little “beauty pageant” if it wasn’t Dior – they just seem to have a way with the sparkle that makes it just the right side of chic. This kind of shade could easily look a bit cheap, but Dior’s sparkle is a different class of sparkle. It’s somehow juicy and plump looking, a little like it could be made from jelly sweets. There’s a gel-like quality to it that gives a wonderful shine and gloss – I suppose, in a way, it looks like thickly-applied, shimmer-finish lipgloss.

Lipgloss for the nails, then – appropriate considering that the Vernis Sparkling Shine accompany the launch of Dior’s Addict glosses. They, too, are super-shiny and glimmery with just the right finish. I’m currently in Palm Springs shooting beauty stories for TWO Magazine so this polish is from Sam Chapman’s stash, but I think I actually have this shade at home. I hope so, because it’s the perfect spring/summer shade for giving a bit of instant “lift” to your nails – the shade Delice is a nice option if you want something a little punchier.

A note on wear, application, finish: I love Dior’s polishes for their wide brush, easy application and good wear. I consistently turn to their nude shades for a quick nail fix if I need to look groomed and presentable and I’d say that the Sparkling Shine shades are just as easy to apply and wear as the nudes. I’d definitely recommend a base-coat with these corally shades, though – I often end up with severely stained nails if I skip that step!

  1. Lovely nails! Do you do your own manicures at home? Care to share any tips?

  2. This looks gorgeous! May have to treat oneself….

  3. I dont like this polish. The color is beautiful, no doubts, but the way nail polish goes on the nails is horrible! It is very dense and has a tendency to swing over the nail onto your nail beds making it very hard to clean it around. It also does not dry out fast because it’s so dense.
