Till a few months back I was in search of a perfect nude nail polish for my nails. Some seemed to light for my skin making my skin look dark…others seemed very dark. Some good colors applied very streaky and some were very gloopy from the very first time. Some way or the other, I was not completely satisfied with any of them. Finally I got which I can now claim as my very first, perfectly nude nail colour.

My take on Dior Vernis Extreme Wear Nail Lacquer- 219 Beige Safari:
I can now say that this is a perfect nude nail colour for me. The nail polish comes in a very elegant box packaging…inside of which is housed this magnificent bottle of nail colour. The packaging in itself is so pretty. The bottle contains 10 ml of product. The bottle is covered with a gleaming golden metal cap. On pulling out the cap, there is a black cap which holds the brush applicator. The applicator has a nice broad brush which is extremely convenient to use. One stroke of the brush and I was in love. Only one coat of the nail colour gives perfect, opaque, non streaky, smooth and gliding finish. I usually apply 2 coats as a matter of habit.
Once applied, I wanted to test it. Without a top coat, it lasts for 6-7 days without chipping which I think is adequate. With a top coat, it lasts for 10 days easily. It is indeed an extreme wear nail colour. I have applied it about 8-9 times till now and the formula has still not turned thick or gloopy. I usually do cover the bottle with the metal cap when I am painting my nails, so that may be the reason for it. So many people have commented on my nail colour and admired them. It gives my nails a very clean look. Overall, I think this is the most perfect nail colour I have used in a long time.
I have nc30-35 skin tone. While this colour may be perfect for light to medium skin tones, people with darker skin may not find it suitable. So please do check at the counter, see it in day light and then buy it since it is not so cheap that it can be easily discarded.
