Dior Graphic Berry Vernis Nail Lacquer

Dior Graphic Berry Nail Lacquer ($23.00 for 0.33 fl. oz.) is a rich berry-red with a cream finish. Chanel April is lighter, pinker. Rescue Beauty Lounge Bruised is darker, purpler. China Glaze City Siren is redder. Butter London Blowing Raspberries is lighter, brighter. Illamasqua Vice is less red, slightly darker. China Glaze Winter Berry is redder. Essie Size Matters is darker and redder.

Graphic Berry had opaque color coverage in two coats, though it was almost opaque in a single coat–it was that pigmented. The polish flowed evenly and fluidly across the nail without bubbling, pooling, or streaking. Dior has a slightly larger brush that makes application a little easier, unless you have really narrow nail beds, then it may be more problematic. I typically get a week of wear with minor tip wear with this formula.
