Dior Lime (602) Nail Lacquer
Dior Lime (602) Nail Lacquer

A Pop of Summer in Your Winter

Dior Lime (602) Nail Lacquer ($23.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “fresh green.” It’s a bright pop of yellow-toned, medium green. There is very, very tiny micro-shimmer that is only visible under bright light–even then it is barely-there. Rescue Beauty Lounge Abi is darker, yellower. Zoya Mitzi is brighter, yellower, more neon. Illamasqua Radium is much, much yellower. China Glaze Cha Cha Cha is the closest, but it is very shimmery.

It’s a new and limited edition shade from Dior’s 2013 Cruise collection (hence the summery vibe). It has an interesting cream-jelly hybrid of a finish, because it looks like a cream at a glance, but there’s that squishy look that you get with a jelly polish. It has a natural high-shine when it dries down. The drying time was about average, but the polish is very unforgiving if you apply before each coat is dry. This polish needs almost three coats to be opaque, and the consistency is a little thick but kind of runny, so it’s not the easiest formula to work with. The color is vibrant, beautiful, and when it’s on, looks lovely, but the formula needs improvement. I typically get a full week of wear out of Dior’s formula with minor tip wear but no chipping.

  3. Rita

    Looks awesome!

  4. Yellowlantern

    This definitely looks rather thick.

  5. Kiss & Make-up

    I like China Glaze Cha Cha Cha much better.

  7. Aditi

    I don’t know… Looks like pea soup

  8. i really do not like this colour..

  9. Such a pretty color! I think Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Limestone is similar, too.

    this could be similar to Wild Thing from the Pure Ice polishes at walmart. WT is probably less yellow and more sheer.

  11. I love this colour green! Definitely hard to pull off green nails though :( But I have an idea in mind! black and green outfit with this coloured nails: LOVELY JUBBLY :D

    I think “Def Defying” lime green crème from the Cirque du Soleil: Worlds Away inspired collection is really close.

    This would be nice as a base for layering, but I would never wear it alone. Still, as someone else mentioned, Sally Hansen has a similar shade, as does Revlon (and I’m quite certain Sinful Colors likely has one), all at fraction of the cost.

    I don’t like this colour but when I first opened the page and saw the bottle I thought that the lid looked like Batman! Then I realised it was the light reflecting on it, and that it’s just a regular square lid. D’oh!

      Lol I didn´t notice the Batman thing! I had to go and look at the bottle again, yep in that picture it looks like Batman :P awesome!

  15. Really not what I would expect from Dior. I appreciate the high end lines taking risks and doing more “out-there” colors but this is just screams “SHREK”…For 23 bucks I don’t want to look at my nails and see an ogre.

    Pass.

  16. Brenda

    Love this colour (I have a ton of green polishes, none of them really a dupe) but I wouldn’t pay $23 for a polish that’s at all fiddly to apply when I could get something similar that’s easier to work with for a fraction of the price.

  17. Avatar of Cat Cat

    I love Dior polishes… wish they weren’t all limited edition (or most of them, anyway). I love the way this looks! But it’s a bummer the formula is less than stellar.

  18. I am in LOVE with this collection of polishes–particularly Mango and Lime. All 3 are colors I love to wear on my nails year-round so it’s perfect for me!

  19. VickyM

    Even if it was nice, this shade of green is a NO for me.

  20. cool color! I like it! A lot of limey greens tend to lean more yellow, but I like this one. It’s very unique and evocative of actual lime.
