Dior Addict Vernis 537 Riviera 659 Lucky 579 Plaza 257 Incognito Swatches and Review

Four brand new Dior Addict nail polishes have hit the universe with a storm and they are matching with the new Dior Addict Extreme lipstick line (swatches here). Each polish features a color family ranging from red to pink with a single polish that is more towards nude. The nail polishes are vibrant and full of pigmentation that look bold. They are new trend of Color Block!

The 4 new color block nail polishes are bursts of colors that bring life and character to the nails.

A desire to live for seduction, look beautiful, and have fun.

Each color shares the same nature of creamy and subtle micro shimmers in the bottle. The colors are quite electrifiedly pigmented. Shimmers are not very noticeable but to enhance the light reflection and dimensional look. You can see the shimmers in the sun swatches below.

The 4 shades of these Dior Addict Vernis from left to right are:

537 Riviera
659 Lucky
579 Plaza
257 Incognito

Starting off with 537 Riviera, it is a bright orange toned red color that almost reminds of last year’s summer lip color Fire (swatch here). You might notice that the color is a lot more warmer in tone compared to the rest.

After swatching the polish can be seen as a creamy lacquer that is complete with a smooth finish that also looks glossy as well. The reflection towards light makes the color shine. All swatches are done with base coat, 2 coats of Dior Vernis and top coat, the way how you should always wear nail polish.

659 Lucky is the Iconic color that Kate Moss wears. This color is seen to be a reddish pink tone. You could almost say that there is a bit of hot pink stirring in the formula.

Lucky is also a creamy polish along with every polish in the collection. The color is vibrantly hot in color. Almost like the colors of hot tamales the candy.

Next is 579 Plaza. The color is a much cooler toned hot pink. It almost has a hint of violet in it.

On the nails, the color looks pretty much like a Barbie pink which is quite gorgeous and after the nail polish is dry, the finish is absolutely flawless.

Last but not least is 257 Incognito. Incognito serves to be a neutral nude in color. It can be seen as a rose color with beige tones thus turning the color to a more naturally wearable color. You could say it is more concealed after wearing it or even the word humble would work in this case. It is after all named, “Incognito.”

Incognito shows to be a close to skin-toned color for me. As natural as it seems, the color looks a very light rose smothered with beige all over it trying to hide under the word nude. For those that like natural colors this would be the perfect choice!

I haven’t been wearing these polishes for a long time, but I do find the formula consistent with the other Dior Addict Venis. It is richly pigmented and creamy that goes on ultra smooth with high shine glossy finish. Normally they last at least a week without extra care, which is long enough before I change to a different color. The revamped brush (see it in the Dior glossy top coat here) also makes application a whole lot easier. I only need 2 or 3 strokes compared to other brushes’ 4 or even 5. Since the colors are so pigmented, you can definitely get away with one coat even the nude shade Incognito. But two coats will give you a more intensely bold look.

Overall, these nail polishes really bring a transition between Spring to Summer but are appropriate for every season. The colors are trendy, modern, yet highly wearable. Whether you’re a polish lover, or Dior lover or both, these colors are must-have. They are timelessly hot.

    Incognito isn’t a bad looking color. It actually is one of the polishes that I am considering to buy.

      Incognito is the only color that is like nude or rather wearable all the time.

    More DIOR! I am picking up all 4 polishes along with the lipsticks since they are matching colors.

      DIOR’s matching lipsticks and nail polishes in this set really makes color coordination great.

      Dior’s nail polish has really nice formula and all aspects. You could check it out at the counters first and see what you think.

    The finish on these polishes look so glossy and perfect. I did see a huge improvement on formulas when they came out with the vernis bar.

    • admin February 27, 2012 at 3:09 PM

      The formula is extremely good and yes they have been improving things.

    Hi there! I LOVE your swatches…always very simple but true to life! In your opinion, is Riviera considered a coral? It looks so pretty but I want something more orangey rather than red. Also, is Plaza too similar to Pibk Grafiti, from the Anselm Reyle collection? I appreciate your feedback and
    take care.

    • admin February 27, 2012 at 4:36 AM

      Plaza isn’t necessarily the same as Pink Graffiti. Pink Graffiti has a more pinkish tone. Also Riviera wouldn’t be considered a coral. It has a lot more orange in the red. I would suggest swatching it in the stores before making a decision.
