Sneak Peek: Dior Spring 2009 Nail Colors
For Spring 2009 Dior introduces two new lovely colors right on track with the Whites, Pink, and Nude upcoming nail trends. When Dior's promo images surfaced on the net a few weeks ago, I was thinking "oh more pink and nudes" how boring. So, to make a long story short - I'm totally biting my tongue on this one you guys.
Porcelaine is decribed as a feminine porcelain pink nail color with fine white/silver shimmer that was surprising pretty. It reminds me of a perfected version Chanel's Allegoria with added shimmer and less the hassle. Porcelain also resembles Chanel's new one, Django but with more pink undertones.
Dior's Porcelain has it going on because it's actually opaque in a non streaky way. While swatching, it wasn't like I had time to paint three and four coats. So, my nail swatches below are all done with a firm two coats. Which is one of the reasons it sold me!
All swatches are done with two coats including the MAC Colors.
Now let's talk about Dior's Nude Chic. A true to color nude beige jelly with no visible shimmer. Slighty sheerer than Porcelain, but still good color pay-off for a nude. Application was perfect with no streaking.

The Dior 09 Makeup collection should be available online and at counters mid Janurary.

Hi Steph, Can you do a side-by-side comparison of Porcelaine and Django? Which one do you prefer?

Hi LR, Of course! I've included the picture in my orginial post. Hmm...That's a hard question because both have different qualities, but I'll have to go with Django. It's a great shade all around and not as pink. However, I do like the chunkiness in Dior's too. :)
