Sneak Peek: Dior Spring 2009 Nail Colors

Dior Porcelaine Porcelain Nail Polish

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.

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. :)

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.

Hi Sarah,

Can I still buy them in the stores now?

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.
