Holiday 08: Dior Black Sequins Nail Polish
Today's nail polish of the day is the new Black Sequins ($19.00) from Diors Holiday collection. A black lacquer filled with silver almost duocrome-y fleck like shimmer. So I don't know if I'm going crazy or what. I'm really seeing these flecks turn bluish in the sunlight. Even in some of my swatches you'll notice a silver/blue effect.
My application was smooth with no true problems. Black Sequins drys to a glossy/very slighty semi matte. You'll probably need a topcoat to accomplish a glossy look. If your wondering - is this the most uniuqe? Well, probably not. So, if your not head over heels for black polish - I'd pass on this one. If you love black - go for it girlfriend.
Let's start off with the closest comparison which would be Chanel's Black Satin. Black Sequins is more chunkier with slighty visible blue/sillver shimmer compared to Black Satin, but both are similar. It's a great alternative, espically if you wished Black Satin had a little more kick.
Dior's Black Sequins ($15) is now available at Sephora for a limited time only.

This color looks good. The bluish hue looks similar to Chanel Satin Blue in some light. Which is better Dior's Black Sequins or Chanel's Satin Black Limited Edition (the one with shimmer)? How about the other nail polish from Dior's Holiday Collection, Pure Diamonds?

Hi Chip, That's a toughie! I'd say Dior Black Sequins is much prettier IMO. It has visible chunkier shimmer compared to Black Satin but are both similar. Haven't had a chance to see Pure Diamonds in person but, I should have it this week :)
