Dior Summer Mix Swatches for Nails and Lips

 

 

Reboot your excitement for summer with the limited edition Dior Summer Mix range, a capsule collection of acid brights and tropical hues for nails and lips. It’s the perfect mid-season injection of colour – and a little treat for those of us experiencing a rubbish, grey summer!

The focus for this collection is the brand new formulation: the original Dior Vernis becomes Dior Vernis Gloss, a jellified, high-gloss polish. Dior Vernis Gloss is like sorbet for the nails – juicy, bright and translucent. In one coat, the colour is semi-sheer, in two it is opaque.

Perhaps the most distinctive colour in the collection, Dior Vernis Gloss in 118 Acapulco is unlike any yellow nail colour I have ever tried before. Where yellow nail varnishes can be hard to pull off, this tart lemon hue applies like a dream and looks ultra polished. Such is the beauty of the new glossy formula!

 

Dior Vernis Gloss in 158 Calypso is a very unusual red colour. This juicy candy apple hue is made unique with its neon, semi-transparent, jelly finish. It is the perfect colour to pep up both the fingers and the toes, and looks glorious with a tan.

 

The sorbet-like cranberry pink of Dior Vernis Gloss in 178 Cosmo is the most outwardly feminine nail colour of the collection. It applies sheer and dries to a semi-opaque finish in just two coats. Like its namesake cocktail, it is fruity, fun and a little bit naughty.

 

Like the depths of the Mediterranean sea, Dior Vernis Gloss in 198 Lagoon is a refreshing pop of cool, deep curacao blue. It is the most high-coverage of the four shades, and instantly updates any outfit with its attention-grabbing hue.

 

The beautiful pink of Dior Ultra Glow in 664 Rose Bikini contains no shimmer and has a jellified neon finish. The hot pink hue is a wonderful contrast to the deep blue nails of Lagoon in particular, and is a great matchy-matchy colour for Cosmo.

 

To constrast with the acidy hue of Acapulco, Dior suggests this almost-neon cherry red of Dior Ultra Gloss Glow in 854 Rouge Croisiere. The wet-look shade has zero shimmer and a high shine, jelly finish looks so fresh and effortless yet makes a real statement. Perfect popsicle lips!
