Dior Diablotine (643) Nail Lacquer ($24.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is described as a “sparkling poppy red.” It’s a bold, bright red with warm, orange undertones and soft flecks of sparkle. MAC Vivid Effect is less shimmery and lighter. Dior Merveille is slightly darker. Rescue Beauty Lounge Poppy is redder, darker. Essie Too Too Hot is redder. See comparison swatches.

It has rich, intense color payoff and yielded full color coverage in two coats. The consistency was nicely balanced and wasn’t too thick or too thin, so the polish flowed well across the nail and never streaked, bubbled, or pooled along the edge. Dior’s wider brush makes it easier to apply one coat smoothly and evenly, and it minimizes any chance of brush strokes (no visible ones here). The finish is amazing; it is subtle but sparkling–perfect for summer–and shiny without needing a top coat. I usually get a week of wear with no chipping, just minor tip wear, with Dior’s formula.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities!

I have Spring Ball and I’ve worn it a handful of times (which is a good indicator of how much I like it)! Now I want Diablotine too, or maybe just all four of them!

I found mine very thick to apply and it lost its brightness the day after applying, becoming dull and needed another coat of top coat to be shiny again. I fell in love with all the nail lacquers of the Gloss addict collection but because of this poor experience with Diablotine, I didn’t buy the other colors.

I love your site and respect your reviews greatly but I have a small plaint. This polish is from the spring collection and isnt available anymore at most stores so what’s the point of us even having it for reference? I’m sure you have a lot on hand and can’t get to everything but I’ve seen that many times I’m forced to read other blogs for reviews on the season collections because there’s such a delay in the timing of your reviews from seasonal products. I much prefer your reviews to some others blogs but I like to see reviews of stuff before it sells out or when it’s just released so it helps me decide what to buy. I wouldn’t even mind a short review of a few products and swatches of a new collection than a long detailed one much later.

Hi Sara,

It’s available on dior.com and Sephora.com! I just bought this myself about a week and a half ago or so? I’m sorry you do not find the reviews to your liking! Unfortunately, this is the pace it takes to receive, photograph, swatch, and test for me (I do not speak for other blogs, only myself). For many brands, I don’t get any kind of early access, so I’m either buying or receiving products as they’re being released. Often, they release first, and then I reach out to a brand or buy it, depending on whether the brand has samples to provide or not. I work between 10-12 hours a day, seven days a week – this is me doing my very best, and I’m very sorry that we’re not providing you with what you’d like! I would love to tell you I’d work harder or do better, but I’m really giving you everything I have now. I will continue to look for ways to improve as much as possible.

Sorry Christine, I didn’t mean to say you don’t work hard. I know you work extremely hard and I love all your reviews. They are the most thorough and your photographs are amazing. I don’t know about Dior.com but I was going by the fact that all the department stores no longer have the display even. I just said it because I love your reviews most and can’t wait when new collections are released(mainly Guerlain, Dior, Chanel). Anyways, my apologies… It wasn’t my intention to say you don’t work hard, thanks for all the great work.

Hi Sara!

I don’t live near any counters, so I have no idea what is or isn’t still out on counters, so I go by what’s still available online (and as a result, buy almost 95% of makeup online) 🙂 Thanks so much for your feedback!

Christine, I just want to say I love your reviews and appreciate the effort you put in!

To Sara, temptalia.com has an international audience, often items reviewed here haven’t even been released in the UK (and other countries) even if they are long sold out in the US (or other places) and vice versa! I would much rather see items that are no longer available to me than miss out altogether by no reviews being published! Sometimes I see things and think ‘I’m SO glad I didn’t purchase that’.. and others I lust after something and am often able to track it down somewhere, and if not.. it’s not the end of the world!

Also, the reviews are excellent references for people looking for dupes or ways to use a product they’ve previously purchased!

Christine, please know that you have so, so many readers who greatly appreciate the hard work that you do for your blog and are more than satisfied with the style/pace of your blog.

I’m only now noticing how little product are in these bottles. I like the color, but coral is not an unusual polish color. I’m sure there’s something similar out there for less.

Hi! I had the same concern, but when I tried the color Dior Lucky it is clear why. Most luxury polish does market in the 1/3 oz size. Dior’s new formula is so good, it can cover in one coat, dries fast and may not need top coat! I was stunned, couldn’t shut up about it. I used two coats of Lucky with no primer and it scarcely scratched at all in 10 days! Best formula I’ve used lately, you WILL get many applications from that small bottle.

It’s a pretty color. However, after trying lots of brands (both drugstore and high end) my favorite nail polishes are by Revlon. They wear well on me and come in a ton of colors. So, I don’t really bother with anything more than $8.
