Dior Vernis Porcelaine 204


Among the small treasures I gathered this Spring theres is the celestial Porcelaine by Dior.
What can I say? the picture speaks for itself.


I know what you are thinking, since when am I loving so much pastel blue? PASTEL!!? Me? Oh yes, very unusual for me. I admit it. But if you look closely you'll notice the quality of this nail polish is its translucency. Just as porcelaine. Is it as translucent as a jelly? Nope, I guess this is more of a "crelly" just in between creme and jelly. That rare quality is what makes this nail polish unique to my eyes, very refined and different from any pastel blue I've ever seen.


The formula is a dream to work with. The brush is divine. Best brush ever, hands down. The colour is *almost* opaque in 2 coats. It definitely photographs better with 3 coats. Definitely. In fact, I've used three coats on my pictures, but only 2 coats on my right hand and it looks perfect as well. I think in real life I prefer two coats over three, because with three coats it loses a little that halo of lightness the shade gives.



It dries quite fast, and it is pretty long-wear -at least for me- I already sported this shade three times this Spring one of which during five days, without one single sing of wear, unlike other times I must say this little treasure surely worth the penny.

What do you think about Porcelaine? Have you fallen in love with any colour/nail polish/ makeups this Spring? Let me know your thoughts in the comments! Have a lovely weekend :)

Love,
Nati

  1. Gosh, this is really a stunner. It reminds me of what China Bone looks like if held against the light. I wouldn't be surprised if Porcelaine will look this appropriate any given Season of the year and it amps up the tan of your skin beautifully. I didn't pick-up any in the shops here but splurged on Picture Polish, some KBShimmer creams and the Pahlish spring collection :-S - have a wonderful weekend xxx

    1. Hi sweetie, I'm glad you like it I do think Porcelaine might be appropriate for any season :) Oh, I understand you, how could you resist such unique indie shades! now that you mentioned this year I haven't bought any spring collection (I used to buy a whole collection each year for Easter) but nothing seems so tempting, may be I should take a look into indies this year!

  2. Me da una bronca terrible porque acá llegó toda la colección Trianon menos este esmalte. Solo trajeron unas re poquitas unidades que se vendieron en el evento de lanzamiento pero no para el público en general. Dijeron que es porque a las argentinas no les gustan esos tipos de colores pero para mi no es así. Más y más se están animando a estos colores y más atrevidos tsmbien
    Una verdadera lástima porque moría por tenerlo (y al top coat que viene en la colección también y tampoco llego) espero que se pongan las pilas y al menos traigan sailor, captain y el otro que no me acuerdo el nombre.
    Besos!!!

    1. Ay Paula, no me digas, qué quiere decir que a las argentinas no les gusta "este tipo de color" si es un celeste re-pálido? re suave... si esto les parece atrevido entonces el amarillo fluo qué es? jajaja.
      Si lo querés muuuuuucho puedo ver de conseguirtelo. no te prometo nada, pero lo podemos arreglar, escribime un mail, dale? beso

    1. I know Melissa, neither are my thing (usually). I only own two, now three, and I have nearly a thousand bottles of polish :P

  6. I love that one! Currently have it on my nails with Perle top coat for a sugary matte finish. I find it a bit patchy by the first coat though but tight the second it all looks better. Do you use base coat?

    1. Hi Sara, oh I bet it looks just divine with a sugary matte finish! Yes, I forgot to mention the basecoat! I use Mavala 002 basecoat and I guess it teams up with Dior fantastically because it wears forever!
