NOTD: Dior Vernis 671 Violet Graphique
Here is today's nail: Dior's Violet Graphique aka Graphic Berry: a glossy, deep raspberry cream. I think I may prefer this one more for a pedicure. It doesn't exactly have a spring feel, being quite dark, but is the sort of shade that could easily be worn year-round. I am loving the Dior Vernis formula lately. This one required two coats and is nice and shiny, without any streakiness. It has the wide tapered brush, which took me a while to get the hang of, but I like the way less brush-strokes are required, making for a speedier application. This looks somewhat darker on the nails than in the bottle. I was hoping it would be just a bit lighter with more violet or magenta tones -- in low light this looks more like a plum-wine and in brighter light it sometimes looks almost like a cherry red.
