Dior Darling (653) and Trafalgar (657) Vernis Nail Enamel

Dior Darling (653) Vernis Nail Enamel ($24.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark pink cream with cool, blue undertones. It was opaque after two coats, and the consistency wasn’t too thick or too thin. The formula applied evenly without pooling along the edges or streaking. It dried down to a naturally shiny finish, though a top coat would give it extra glossiness. Formula X A+ (P, $10.50) is a touch darker. Cult Nails Morning Glory (P, $12.00) is matte. MAC Toco Toucan (LE, $16.00) is bluer-based. MAC Girl About Town (LE, $16.00) is also bluer-based. L’Oreal Members Only (P) is very similar. See comparison swatches

Dior Shadow Nail Lacquer / Vernis

Dior Shadow Nail Lacquer ($23.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as an “intense, shimmering purple.” It’s a dark eggplant purple with flecks of coppery red shimmer. Cult Nails Spontaneous is lighter. MAC Festive Finery is duller, slightly lighter, and has a cream finish. Cult Nails Enigmatic is browner. China Glaze Urban-Night has a stronger red undertone. You might be remembering Bobbi Brown Twilight from yesterday, but while both are dark, purple-ish shades, Shadow is much more of a purple-eggplant without all of the brown that Twilight had.

Dior Golden Light Vernis / Nail Lacquer

Dior Golden Light (207) Vernis / Nail Lacquer ($23.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is a sheer, champagne gold with subtle yellow undertones and then dirty gold and red shimmer. OCC Cruising is more opaque and yellower. Shades like Chanel Diwali are all more brown, less yellow. China Glaze White Cap is more of a white gold.  I couldn’t think of a dupe for this shade, though–the red sparkles do make it different from other potential golds.
