Dior Mango (438) Nail Lacquer
Dior Mango (438) Nail Lacquer

A Ripe, Juicy Mango of a Polish

Dior Mango (438) Nail Lacquer ($23.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is described as a “deliciously fruity and radiant yellow.” It is a brightened tangerine orange with a cream finish. China Glaze Orange You Hot is darker, more orange. Zoya Arizona is more orange. China Glaze Papaya Punch is a darker orange. China Glaze Sun Worshipper is closest but brighter–almost neon.

The formula is a smidgen on the thicker side, so it takes a little longer to dry, and it’s best to let the first coat dry down before applying the second, as it has a tendency to pull/drag more so than other polishes.  The color coverage was mostly opaque after two coats, and it didn’t pool along the edges.  I typically get a week of wear with minor tip wear but no chipping.

Mango

B+
Bright enough to be summery, but not so bright that it turns neon, it still dries down to a shiny finish without need for a top coat.

  1. Wow! I love how bright this is! Beautiful :)

    Pretty but it’d probably look horrible on me.

  3. I hate thick polishes, but since this one only leans on the thick side, maybe I will still check it out. The color is just TOO gorgeous to resist!

    This looks like it could be a color-dupe for the Illamasque rubber-finish nailpolish in Optimist.

    Agh, I love mango, Dior’s polishes, and this color. Don’t think I can pull it off, though. :( You’re safe for now, wallet.

  6. This sort of mango-golden-rod-orange is one of my favorite colors, but I’m not really loving it as a nail color

  7. What’s up with that brush? Is it different compared to normal brushes or does it just look that way?

  8. Aiysha

    is this nail polish going to be released on dior counters in the uk?
