Neutral shades with an edge: Dior Gris Trianon


I cannot tell you how often I felt tempted to buy Gris Trianon since its appearance at our Dior Counters. I was strong and resisting the urge until M sponsored me some nailpolish - how could I possibly give a pass on this any longer???

I applied two coats of Dior Gris Trianon over Essence XXL Nail Thickener. Application was the usual Dior dream. The consistency is a tad thin but then you will want this beauty to look squishy and jelly-like. It dries to a fantastic high shine, so you would not necessarily need a Top Coat.

Final thoughts: I particularly like the slightly shifting change in the color depending on the light. Still it looks at any time simply classy and cool. I did try some effect Top Coats with it but frankly none of the options could beat its original glossy look :-)

I bought Dior Gris Trianon with Globus.

I look forward to reading your comments - thanks for visiting!!!
