Dior Vernis in #403 Palais Royal

Dior Palais Royal 403 nail polish

Palais Royal is a permanent shade from Dior’s new “gel effect” nail polish range. This line replaced the old nail polishes introducing a new formula and a new brush.

I wasn’t a fan of the old nail polishes – the brush was oddly cut and chubby making the application difficult, and the formula got goopy very fast. For this reason I avoided buying them even though I liked their shades. Formula of Palais Royal is everything I hoped the old nail polishes would be – it has great consistency, and although the first coat is thin, the second gives full coverage and it dries very fast. The brush is just perfect – rounded, easy to handle as it covers the nail in one stroke. It’s very similar to YSL and Lancome nail polish brushes.

Palais Royal is a beautiful medium toned grey-taupe cream, with a hint of purple. It looks very elegant and sophisticated on the nails. It’s one of those shades you can always pull off and wear in any occasion. I love that it is slightly cool toned taupe as it doesn’t go too brown/mushroomy on me (an issue I have with most taupe shades). It’s a must-have shade from Dior.
