Dior Bleu Poison: Review and Photo Swatch

Dior limited edition vernis nail color in Bleu Poison 

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 Almost a deep teal. There's also a dark blue with a faint shimmer. And for Spring, a fabulous dark green.

Hi Steph,
Love your blog. You wrote: Always wrap the free edge or tip throughout each step. I didn't see this step in the video. Could you please explain how to do the wrap process and with what material. Thank you.

I am wondering if these gel polishes can be used with other gels. I have a different system with a different brand of base coat and top coat, can the different brands of gel mix?

I've had my kit for a couple of months now and love the way it lasts; but the Structure and Brilliance brushes are starting to stiffen and so is the gel in the bottles. Anyone else having that issue? Is there a way to thin them out?

Hi, does anyone know if I can thin out the red carpet base coat so that it is easier to apply?

Hi Prinzy,
It was a gorgeous color! I remember picking up a few bottles because I loved the color so much! lol! Actually, yes, I'm launching a store in the next couple of weeks. I have everything built, I'm just working on the Terms and Conditions right now, so it should be very, very soon.

I only have about 10 Studio M colors in the store currently, but I will be taking special pre-orders once it opens.

I've been playing with this system for about a month now. I love it! When I first started I used the clear just so I could get a feel for it. Then I got adventurous and tried a "sandwich" with a China Glaze color. It probably would have stayed on longer if I had been able to seal off the edges, but my nails were so short it was a bit difficult. The next time I used RCM gel polish in Simply Stunning (a pale slightly shimmery nude color). This time I had gotten enough practice to really make my coats thin and it worked out fabulous. I'm trying to send all my friends the Ulta 20% coupon (5/26 is the last day) so they can get a kit for about $64. :) Now I hope to get a little creative with color combos and nail design. Thanks for the review.
