Acapulco among Lagoons: Dior Vernis Summer Mix
From what I’ve been featuring lately, we aaaalllllll know it’s summer. Well, it is in some countries, but winter in others and if you live in a country like mine, it doesn’t really matter. It’s just hot and humid all year round, with some occasions of thunder storms… and a yearly hazy phase that is toxic to my allergic nose. Anyhoo, I’ve been pretty excited about Dior’s Summer Mix Lips and Nails Collection. From the 4 Vernis shades, I am the most excited about these two: Lagoon and Acapulco.
Lagoon is a creamy opaque deep sea blue. 2 coats will get you an opaque finish, but 3 coats will deepen the shade a little further, which I prefer. I have never been a sweet pink nail girly girl, and I usually lean towards darker shades. This blue is deep enough to give a sultry mysterious feel when paired with black. However, I decided to match it with something brighter to give it a pop. You’ll see
Acapulco is a colour that brings me down memory lane… back to a bright sunny yellow polka dot dress I had when I was a kid It is a lemon yellow that changes in different lighting. Sometimes it looks paler, sometimes it looks richer. There are times when this colour reminds me of a healthy egg yolk. Either way, this is the FIRST yellow nail polish I’ve ever had. I tried it on for size, pleasantly surprised. Acapulco goes on quite sheer the first coat and I have to layer it 3 times to get an opaque finish. I have yet to wear yellow on all my 10 digits, because as soon as I got these, I decided to pair it with Lagoon. The result is quite a lovely one
See what I mean? The blue can be conservative but that one bright yellow added a little twist and fun into it. I wore it to work (a conservative environment) and no one said Whoa! which I think is a good sign. Below is another shot.
I have said before that I really like the creamier texture of Dior polishes and oh, the brush. Absolutely love it! Flat, tapered, wide. I wish the rest had bigger brushes so I’d have less of a tough time avoiding streaks. Sigh. I might be the only one though
Acapulco, Lagoon, Calypso and Cosmo are the 4 limited edition nail varnishes of the Summer Mix collection and they retail for RM72 each. Calypso is a bright red and Cosmo is a neon pink.
Have you seen these at your nearest Dior counters? If you were to try, which shade would you go for? Any yellow polishes in your stash?
