Dior Bleu Poison: Review and Photo Swatch
As ya'll know, I'm a little obsessed when it comes to blue nail polish so, I couldn't resist this one. Dior just released Bleu Poison, an Sephora exclusive limited edition nail polish color, inspired by the legendary Dior Midnight Poison fragrance. So, does it live up to the hype of all the other "navy blue" nail polishes out there? How does it compare to the infamous Chanel Blue Satin? I'll explain.
What's the difference? Dior is a high-gloss, dark navy blue-blackish nail polish, with a slight hint of dark blue shimmer pigments. Dior's formula is much thinner compared to Chanels Blue Satin, which made it a dream to apply. Although, there is very little shimmer in this polish, it looks gorgeous in light, due to the perfect amout of shimmer to make this a very sophisticated polished look.
Dior proclaims long wearing, yeah right? This formula is definitely long lasting and dreamy! I love when I find a nail polish that is long lasting and easy to apply! My manicure lasted me a good 7 "rough" days with no chipping. So, thats is a plus in my book. Check out the photo swatch below.
I love that fact that is more of a sophisticated glossy polish. Perfect for the office, and those special night outs. Even though there is not much shimmer, it lets off the perfect amout of sparkle in the right light.
Blue Satin VS Bleu Poison. One big difference is the consistency of the forumula. Chanel's is much thicker than Dior which made it difficult to apply Blue Satin at times. Another big difference, Blue Satin ususally looked dark blue-blackish is most lighting, except the sun. Bleu Poison shimmers and sparkles in a sophisicated way in most lighting that isn't too overpowering.
Overall, I think that Dior's Blue Poison is much appropriate in the corporate world and the night life. Also, perfect for those who love high-gloss cream polishes and those who like just a touch of shimmer.

I think one of the most beautiful blue polishes is Dead Calm from Rescuebeauty.com. Almost a deep teal. There's also a dark blue with a faint shimmer. And for Spring, a fabulous dark green.
