Dior Holiday 2011 The Or Vernis Collection 221 Or Divin Swatch, Dupe Comparison and Review

Yesterday, I showed you what the entire holiday 2011 nails collection from Dior looked like. If you haven’t seen it click here. The entire collection is focused on Gold and Red or rather Or and Rouge. Today, I will be showing you the first in depth look at 221 Or Divin. The gold color is something so cool that once you apply it on your nails it’s like they are made of gold!

The gold flowing bottle really stands out in the sun. It is so bright and magnificent it is as if there was a gold rush from back in the days when American moved West in search of gold.

Or Divin is the only polish in the collection that definitely needs a second coat. It just falls short after 1 coat and looks a bit sheer without enough bling effect.

But after a 2nd coat is applied the nails immediately turns into a full golden nail. It’s as if your nails are made of gold now!

If the nails are put in direct sunlight, you can immediately see the sparkles and 3d effect the nail polish gives. It’s a lot more lively than before.

I decided to pull out every gold colored nail polish I had in my beauty vault to compare. Dior was the only contestant whereas every gold color was from Chanel.

We have the following contestants:

Chanel 440 Gold Lame
Chanel Metallic Nail Colour 62 Or
Dior 221 Or Divin
Chanel Gold Fiction
Chanel 450 Illusion D’or

I went ahead and swatched them all on a nail wheel so that it can be seen much easier in one picture. I purposely put Dior in the middle so that it would be much easier to see the difference between each color. This picture was taken so that you can see how the polish looks in the bottle compared to it being swatched on the nail wheel.

A close up of Chanel Gold Lame and Metallic Nail Colour Or against Or Divin. I think Or looks the closest to Or Divin, though it’s a bit lighter and more lemon-y. But the metallic finish is almost the same. Gold Lame seemed too coppery compared to Or Divin.

This is Chanel Gold Fiction and Illusion D’or compared against Or Divin. Gold Fiction is like a true 24 karat gold which is a lot more intense than Or Divin while Illusion D’or has similar main color but also has flaky glitters that Or Divin doesn’t.

As the name suggests, Or Divin is really a divine gold polish. It’s festival and eye catching. By having this golden gem on your nails, your holiday spirit will sure go up and up.

      Just go to the store and swatch it on your nails. You never will know until you try it out.

    Great swatches and comparison. I think Chanel’s Illusion D’or is the most beautiful gold polish.

    Gold is nice but this one is a bit too light for my liking. I’m thinking of getting the rest of the collection, especially Parrat, so pretty.

    This polish is really pretty and I don’t have anything that’s close to it. Time for me to splurge.
