Dior Vernis Glowing Gardens Spring 2016 - Lilac

Dior's new Glowing Gardens Spring 2016 Colour Collection is now available, and today I have the beautiful new Dior Vernis in Lilac* ($31 CAD) to share with you! These nail lacquers are enriched with organic silicon for extra-long wear and it's formulated without toluene, formaldehyde, phthalates, and camphor.

While this polish is named lilac, it's really more of bright pink colour. Lilac is one of my favourite colours, so I really would have liked for this to have been a true lilac colour. However, this pink shade is still quite pretty. This formula left me with fully opaque colour with just two coats, I would definitely recommend using a top coat with this polish, because this pink does dry to a somewhat dull finish on its' own.

This bright pink is definitely brightening up my mood during the dark days of Winter - Spring cannot come soon enough! As I've mentioned before, I've started wearing my polish for longer periods of time - I don't change my polish on a daily basis anymore. Therefore, I need my polish to last for 3-4 days at a time, which I don't think is asking too much, especially when paired with a base and top coat. I had high hopes from this polish, but unfortunately I did have chipping on the second day. Now, that's not horrible, but it's still not ideal, especially coming from a $31 polish.

So, while this is a super pretty pink polish, it's not lilac, and it isn't super long-wearing. I think that Dior has some more unique polishes available that might be a better purchase, since pretty much every brand has a bright pink polish in their permanent collection.

Have you checked out Dior's new Glowing Gardens Collection yet? What are your thoughts on high end polishes? Do you ever splurge on expensive nail polishes, or do you stick to drugstore brands?
