Dior Vernis Rock Your Nails Collection

While summer is getting close, Dior is going to rock our nails with its limited edition Rock Your Nails collection. The collection includes 5 long lasting, straight off the catwalk polish and Rock Coat, a smoky finishing top coat that transfers any polish to a tempting new look.

Through a wardrobe of 5 iconic shades and top coat, you gonna set your style like a fashionista. The mirror effect is spectacular, thanks to a new nail trend!

Consistency and finish almost similar to Dior Gris City Collection, Rock Your Nails are even better. It’s rich, creamy and highly pigmented. The formula is second to none. There was absolutely no brush mark left behind even with one coat. Its mirror-like finish is glossy on its own. The drying time is super fast. All 5 polishes including the Rock Coat have sparse micro particles so they’re not completely matte. You can’t see the shimmers even though they do add a mysterious depth to the nails.

Blue Label and Rock Coat

Picture is taken in direct sunlight (indoor) with 2-coat application. All the shades are vivid and not flat due to the micro particles in the polish. You can hardly notice them but they definitely add dimension and a subtle sheen to the nails.

Now play it up with top half painted with Rock Coat. It significantly intensifies and darkens the polishes to give them a more vampy effect.

Let’s take a closer look at each of them individually.

Mixing a masculine vibe with the ultra-feminine in a promise of paradise.

Nirvana is a beautiful peacock color that falls in between green and blue. When I first saw the promo picture, I was instant drawn by the uniqueness of this shade. And it did not disappoint.

An enticing shade for a sensually charged slow dance.

Purple Mix is a sultry smoky purple. It’s another shade that I truly love from the collection. Purple Mix has all the warm sexy shades in it, plum, violet and purple. It’s the edgy diva.

Experience any hour of the night, at your fingertips.

Perfecto is a deep neutral slate grey that looks almost black on nails. It’s barely light enough that doesn’t look pure black.

An enigmatic, urban universe.

Underground is a rich chocolate taupe brown. I think the name is very appropriate. By looking at the polish, it does make me think of the earthy dirt that’s underground.

A signature rock essential to wear any time, anywhere.

Blue Label is a dark navy blue. It reminds me of Dior’s Poison Blue and Bond Street. Blue Label is like the combination of the two. It’s lighter than Poison Blue but more intense than Bond Street.

Rock Coat (The Ultimate Smoky Top Coat) As a top coat, its semi-transparent black formula coats the varnish with a veil of smoky lacquer extending wear and increasing shine. Your nail varnish takes on an enigmatic “rock” look.

The coverage of Rock Coat is pretty sheer so when you apply it over your nail polish, you need to make sure to coat it evenly so you don’t get lighter spots. That’s why darker shades will have better results with it. Though I do find it works great with all 5 polishes in the collection. At the first sight, Rock Coat looks like a grey-ish black coat, but it’s more than that. Just like the other 5 polishes, Rock Coat also has that starry particles only you will see. They’re so fine and subtle so it’s not going to look shiny once on nail but rather a subtle sheen. The finish of Rock Coat is also glossy and the texture is light and easy to work with.

So are you in love with Dior’s rockin’ shades? What are you waiting for? Let’s rock this summer!

    I think they’re wayyyyy too dark for summer. Maybe autumn? Dunno, but I don’t really like the colors. Maybe the last color (last pic) would work for me, but the others are just way too dark.

    Those are some great pictures of the Rock Your Nails collection. I’m surprised how dark Rock Coat came out for you though. I got a very different result. Still really nice but not nearly as dark. Check out here to see: Dior Rock Coat with Nirvana and Purple Mix
