Dior Vernis Sparkling Shine 2013 Collection, Swatches and Review

Hi everyone! The Dior Sparkling Shine collection came out several months ago (March maybe?), and while it was love at first sight, I held off buying them right away. Let's face it, one or two Dior polishes is a nice splurge for me, but four...ouch! Luckily I was able to get these with Shoppers Optimum points, and it was well worth the wait.

This collection consists of four glossy, shimmery polishes perfect for spring and summer. There are also four corresponding Dior Addict Gloss lip glosses, which I wasn't able to get.

The formula on all of these was great. They go on very smooth and evenly, requiring 2-3 coats for full coverage. I didn't have any issues with streaking and they dry to a glossy shine, of course I put top coat on them anyways. All four have the same shimmer - it's a silver/gold/pink shimmer that some bloggers have called "glass flecked". The shimmer is what really makes these polishes stand out for me, and they are the perfect complement to the Dior Addict Gloss lip glosses - which I'm totally in love with.

The only down side of these polishes, in my opinion, is the brush. It's a wide, thick, rounded brush that should be perfect for applying polish with minimal strokes. However, I find it holds way too much polish, and is a bit too big for my smaller nails, therefore, I had a hard time keeping the polish out of my cuticles.

Délice (433) is a light coral-red with flecks of silver, peach, pink, and gold shimmer. I didn't think I would like this, but it's very saturated and bright - the perfect colour for summer. I used three coats here.

Diablotine (643) is a cherry red with slight magenta undertones and a red, pink, and gold shimmer. This is by far my favourite out of the four, and for me the perfect red for any time of the year. I only needed two coats for full coverage.

Princess (553) is a dusty pink with a silver, pink, and gold shimmer like the others. It's a very feminine colour without being too bright. I used two coats here but there's still some thin patches, so three would be preferable.

Spring Ball (343) is a light peach hue that leans slightly towards pink. It has the same shimmer as the others. I found it more saturated than Princess, and very flattering with my skin tone. I used three coats for these swatches.

Overall, I'm very happy with this collection. The colours are gorgeous and flattering and the formula on all four is excellent. If you don't mind splurging for Dior polishes, it's worth picking up at least one to have in your collection. My favourite is Diablotine, followed closely by Spring Ball.

Which one is your favourite? Did you pick up any of these polishes?

  5. An gorgeous orange be still my heart! I love Delice. I've been thinking about buying my first high-end polish (been working overtime for two months now) and this might be "the one."

    1. Buying a high end polish is definitely a good reward for the overtime. If you wanted to get Delice, I would act on it quickly - I don't know how long these will be available for.

  7. Hi Meghan, gorgeous swatches!!! I actually did splurge on the Diors - I got Diablotine (of course) and Spring Ball. And I have the same issues with the brush - my pinkie is nearly too narrow for it but then I prefer narrow brushes in general - precise painting is a lot easier ;-)

    1. Thank you Christine! I generally don't mind the wider brushes, but these are just a bit awkward to manage.
