This post has been so so long in the making! I finally have my thoughts and swatches for some of the Dior Vernis Gel Effect shades released Spring 2014. I had swatched them all back when they arrived, but I wasn't happy with the swatches! The formula didn't play nicely with the base coat and the colors didn't photograph accurately for me. I spent so much time trying to color correct in the editing phase that I finally gave up. Then of course my husband loosing his job and us having to sell our home and relocate across the country just got me all off balance. Happy to be feeling more settled in our new home and I've been able to upgrade my photography setup with a new camera and new lighting! Yippee! So finally - I give you Dior Vernis!!

I love the new gel-like formula, it glides on with great staying power. I really love the improved brush design. It's got the same rounded tip but sleeker, softer and better. Makes application effortless!
