A Gold By Many, Many Names

Dior Diorling Diorific Vernis ($26.00 for 0.40 fl. oz.) is a sheer, shimmering champagne gold with flecks of copper-red. I’m pretty sure this is a renamed version of Golden Light (also known as Golden Era and or Lumiere or #207), and while it may be called Diorling, the number is #207. China Glaze Jingle Bells has a similar coloring, but it’s opaque and does not have any red shimmer/sparkle. Chanel Diwali is more of an antique gold (less yellow). OCC Cruising is a stronger yellow gold and has a lot more shimmer/glitter. Readers mentioned some great dupe potentials here as well! ๐Ÿ™‚

After two coats, it’s still rather sheer. Without a color description from Dior, it’s hard to say what they were aiming for. I prefer to err on the side of a lower grade rather than give a brand the benefit of the doubt, but you may prefer this kind of sheer look. The consistency was on the thicker side–thicker than the version I had previously–which did cause a little unevenness in the texture of the polish as it applied. I did get some pooling along the sides, too. There are noticeable brush strokes from the metallic finish of the polish that become more visible under harsher light. ย I don’t have any wear problems with Dior’s formula and typically see a week with minor tip wear and no chipping.

Since it was released previously, you can pick up the color regular Dior packaging as well. If you go that route, it’s less expensive at $23, but it does contain less product (0.33 fl. oz. compared to 0.40 fl. oz.). I think the regular packaging makes for easier application, but the packaging on this one may strongly sway some. It’s not comfortable to use to apply the actual polish, though the brush wasn’t the normal wider brush of Dior’s polish. The bottle I have from before seemed to apply better. ย There are three other shades coming in this limited edition, holiday packaging, though–so maybe one of those will perform better!

I’ll be honest, I’m going to buy this set of nail polish just to put it on my dresser. Even if it is a nice shade, I still wouldn’t use it (well maybe once). Just because I want it to look full.

From a usability standpoint that packaging looks terrible.

I already have difficulty opening nail polish bottles with regular long handles. I can already imagine the grunting and red face I’ll have trying to open this bottle with its little sphere-with-flat-sides handle since I can’t just wrap my hands around the handle like I normally would.

Yeah last night I tried to open a old bottle of OPI polish that I haven’t used in years and I looked terrible trying to open that thing.

I’m drawn to its adorable pacakging. I think it would be lovely over other polish, but I won’t shell out my hard earn money for it as there are tons of great polish out there for cheaper, though minus cute packaging ๐Ÿ™

Do you have any shots of the brush? Is it possible to see a comparison between the two brush types? Thanks Christine! I think this is a hotly anticipated product for some! ^_^

I was wondering the same thing! I could perhaps picture it as a layering polish over the red? that could look stunning but i’d like to try before i buy first. I got the Dior Diva yesterday, just gorgeous! Definitely wouldn’t like the sheer polish on its own.

The red sparkles are a nice touch, but the gold base color is nothing really special (in fact, I have an old WetNWild polish that is pretty much the same, both in terms of color *and* texture/pigmentation). Also, the fact they released the same shade under a different name is just a big turn-off; it comes across as shady and dishonest, as a way to gety consumers to believe they are getting something new. I have no problem with brands re-releasing shades (I often like it), but at least keep the same name.

I’m not too excited about this shade, but I’m dying for the bottle! I can’t wait to see the black one. Do you think you could take a picture of the brush for one of the other shades?

I can’t afford to spend %26.00 on a single bottle of nail polish. Neither will I ever buy any beauty product just because I love the packaging. BUT – if I COULD afford to buy high end polish and if I WERE the kind of person who buys things just because they’re pretty, I would definitely buy this. The bottle is simply gorgeous!
