A Brief Review on Dior Diorific Vernis Lady 011

The Grand Bal Collection brings you nail polishes that look rather unique. Some think they look like light bulbs, Christmas tree ornaments and what have you. Either way, I still think they look cute. Probably not what Dior is going for, but oh wellz šŸ˜›




The Diorific Vernis applies quite easily despite its packaging. The brush is not the wide flat tapered one that I love, but it is just like any other brushes out there. I don’t have a problem applying and the little gold knob fits quite nicely between my fingers.




Lady is a sheer pearly white that would have looked fantastic… if it didn’t streak. I don’t know if this is supposed to streak so bad, but I have a hard time getting an even coat on my nails. First coat is sheer and uneven and streaky, second coat is better still streaky and third coat makes it more opaque but STILL streaky. I thought it was my application technique, but when I checked, this seems to be the review across the web. I would have liked it much much more if the finish makes my nails look like pearly shells.



Did you get any of these Diorific Vernis? Which shade caught your attention? I had my eye on the sparkling black one but never got round to purchasing it. Do you have a pearl nail polish that applies better?

    Thanks for the review Lily! most of my pearl-finish nail polishes are streaky as well! such a pain in the you-know-what to paint it on =/

    Well, at least the nail polish looks nice sitting on your vanity šŸ™‚

    • Yes, I remembered to review this for you šŸ™‚ I know, pain in the arse. Hahahah!!!!

      • Charlotte

        Thank you so much! So sweet of you!! <3

    Aww, what a same it’s streaky! It’s such a lady-like shade!

    • It is a shame, isn’t it? Just imagine the potential. It could have been great šŸ™‚

  • oh thanks for this review and swatch!
    i wanted to get this because of the bottles. i had a dior polish housed in the same bottle before (about a decade ago) and wanted to have it again. lolz
    while the color looks stunning, the streaky finish is a bit too much for me to handle.
    i just got spa ritual ice ice baby which is similar, i’d just settle with it. šŸ˜‰

    • Yeah, it’s the streaky finish that bothers me. Everything else is great
