NOTD | Dior Vernis in 605 Amazonia

August 20, 2012
By

Here’s Dior Amazonia from the Dior Golden Jungle Fall 2012 collection.

A brown with olive and grey tones, this sludgy shade calls to mind the murky depths of tropical rivers. There is miniscule shimmer dispersed throughout the polish but it is barely discernible when worn.

The colour has been off-puttingly described as pond scum and baby poop (though breastfed babies tend to have sunny yellow poo :P) but I actually appreciate its depth and complexity. It seems like a warmer, dirtier take on the greige trend and if you know me, you know I love my dirty shades! ;)

I had my press sample on both long and short nails and prefer the chic look of the latter.

In Singapore, Dior Vernis retails at S$37.
