My posting has slowed considerably with the change of seasons. The reason? Not enough daylight. I leave for the office before the sun has risen and soon I won’t be returning until the sun has set. So I made it my mission this weekend to figure out how to take a decent, consistent, indoor photograph…night or day, rain or shine. I’m almost there. Thanks to google, I now know what all the fancy settings do on my camera. And if you saw the lightbox-ish contraption rigged in my polish room closet…you would be amused!
The polish I wore for this photography experiment is my very first Christian Dior Vernis, compliments of my sister for my birthday. This is Graphic Berry, a rich, berry creme. I am in love with this color!
The polish is super pigmented. I almost stopped at one coat. It’s obvious that whatever Dior puts in their secret sauce is different than what Wet N’ Wild puts in theirs. So I get why Dior is more expensive. But $23 is a LOT more for a third less polish than most brands (10 ml versus 15 ml). I also wasn’t a big fan of the brush. It’s wide with a round edge – which isn’t optimal for small, narrow nailbeds.
The verdict? This is a great splurge for a color that you just can’t do without. But for a “polish collector” like me, this is a slippery slope I can’t afford to ride. But it makes a fabulous gift!
