Yes, this polish is in the same name (and matching shade) as one of the glosses from Dior's recent massive Addict Gloss Collection.
Unlike the usual creme finish of Dior polishes, the Addict Gloss-inspired Dior Vernis comes with a slightly sparklier finish. Just like how the gloss has bits of shimmer strewn into a cream base, these polishes reflect the same thing.
Think, gloss for your nails!
Délice, and the other polishes from this collection, comes with the usual Dior brush — a flat and short brush with a rounded edge.
I may have mentioned it before but Dior brushes are quite a joy to work with. I love flat and short brushes as they often make application a breezel. The rounded edge is a plus because it allows for a more seamless and 'smoother' edge when you lay the polish down.
With all that said, it took me awhile to swatch (and feature) this polish because orange polishes aren't really for me.
That was one thing I learnt that when I wore China Glaze's Peachykeen but decided to go ahead and give orange another go with Délice.
Here is Délice 433 on it's own, 2 coats, without a base or top coat.
My verdict is... orange is still not quite for me.
I wouldn't exactly shoot this polish down because it could be beautiful on some but for me, it makes my skintone appear yellow and dull.
Color-aside, the shimmer flecks in Délice isn't as obvious and lovely as it looks in the bottle, plus they give the polish a bit of grit without much sparkle or shine. I like Dior's idea of adding understated shimmer, making the polish sparkly without being flashy but I suppose this formula needs a little more fine tuning to be perfect.
Maybe all we need is a little bit of topcoat to set this whole thing and enhance the little shimmers. Which could be why this collection was launched and publicized with the Dior Gel Top Coat, though I haven't given that a go yet.
Regardless this is simply my take on Délice and who knows, some may love it for the pop of summer fun and if texture is your thing, you could find this lovely; I like my polishes creamy and glossy.
With that said, I will give their Gel Top Coat a go soon. Once I manage to tear myself away from Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat, that is!
