Dior Exquis (611) Vernis Nail Lacquer ($22.00 for 0.33 oz.) is a murky brown–it’s not quite taupe; it seems too brown to be taupe–with muted golden shimmer threaded through the color. It was opaque in two coats.  Dior’s formula lasts a week on me with minor tip wear (with a base/top coat–I use Zoya Anchor and Armor).  For a brown, it’s not overly warm, so I think cooler skin tones may find it a workable brown.  The lightness of it should also help with wearability.  I think the addition of the golden shimmer keeps it on-trend without being overkill.  Exquis applied easily without being too thick or thin, so it flowed evenly across the nail bed and didn’t bubble or streak.

China Glaze Street Chic has a very similar base color, though it’s slightly less murky. Rescue Beauty Lounge Decorous is a bit lighter and cooler-toned. China Glaze Ingrid is similar in overall color and shimmer, but it is several shades darker.
