dior miroir swatches & review
I’m not sure if ya’ll know how much I love chrome polishes, but in real life I love them. I’m pretty sure they’re all made just for me because they don’t wear spectacularly well (on account of the finish). That’s perfect for me because really, nothing wears spectacularly well for me. One day polish? I’m great with that ‘cause that’s how often I change my polish anyhow.
This Dior Miroir 001 Vernis (above) is a silver chrome. It feels remarkably similar to OPI’s Push & Shove but it seems to have a little more top coat built into the formula. That makes it better than the OPI. And also better than the Sally Hansen Color Foils.
My finish is flawless. Will you be able to get it on your nails as evenly and smoothly as I did? If you have a smooth nail surface and a smooth top coat you will! There’s a trick, friends – use a top coat as a base coat to ensure a smart, level base. I have a clear soak-off gel base under there so I have no bumpies or ridgies (not that I really do anyhow) and my finish is perfection.
That’s one coat. One. OCW! And did I mention the brush? Best.Brush.Ever!!! My pinky finger only requires one single stroke of polish for complete, even coverage. So good. So very, very good.
And wait… as chromes are notoriously craptastical in their wear time, how about I slap some top coat over it to see if I can prolong the life of this beauty?
Wheeee! The Dior Gel Coat over Miroir doesn’t dull it at all! Lookit that! Stupendous, right?
Yes, Dior Vernis Miroir 001 is indeed limited edition and it’s on counter right now. In Canada, get it at The Bay. In the US, get it at Nordstrom. In the UK, hit Selfridges. Hurry though, this stunner ain’t gonna last much longer and you’re going to need it for New Year’s Eve! Am I right? Yeah, you know I am!
