Dior Sailor Vernis ($30.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is a rich, cobalt blue with a jelly-cream finish. MAC Breezy Blue (LE, $16.00) is darker. MAC Blue Gaze (LE, $16.00) is darker. Illamasqua Force (P, $17.00) is slightly darker. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Pond (P, $10.00) is a smidgen more muted. China Glaze Ride the Waves (LE, $7.50) is lighter. China Glaze Manhunt (LE, $7.50) is darker. Deborah Lippmann I Know What Boys Like (LE, $19.00) is darker. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

It’s one of three shades available in the Saks-exclusive Voyage Transatlantique collection, and with my luck, it just sold out online. You may be able to track it down in store if you happen to be near a Saks (or know of one to call–I’m sure they’ll ship it to you as well). There are two other shades–Captain and Yacht–but I didn’t purchase either, so I won’t have any insight into them. Each shade is paired with nail stickers that can be applied to the nail. Sailor applied beautifully with mostly opaque color coverage (just enough translucency so that it had that squishy, jelly look) in two coats. I didn’t have any issues with the consistency, as the polish flowed evenly and smoothly across the surface of the nail without bubbling, streaking, or pooling along the edges. It dried down at an average speed but finished with a glossy shine. I typically get a week of wear out of Dior’s formula with no chipping, just minor tip wear.
