UPDATE: Because I have lost my mind (and need more sleep) the earlier version of this post was 50% incorrect on the name of this polish. I kept calling it “Azure Chocolate” in my mind then somehow that translated onto the post, sorry about the confusion! This color is called Aztec Chocolate. Post has been fixed.
And the Dior Vernis addiction continues with Aztec Chocolate, which is part of their fall 2010 collection.
Aztec Chocolate is an amazing dark chocolate with gold shimmer.
For some reason the thought didn’t cross my mind to show this tapered brush they have until a reader mentioned it. Duh, sorry about that!
Anyway so here is the new wide tapered brush. It’s definitely not the best shape and can be harder to work with than regular brushes. Basically I just go slower than usual and it’s not really that much of a problem. Some folks might totally hate it though and I can see why.
So as you can see the color is just this beautiful shimmery brown. I know a lot of people say they don’t like brown polish, but I don’t think they are thinking of this color brown when they say that. It’s really flattering and applied pretty nicely. I did need three coats to get it completely opaque.
And just so you can see them side by side since they are both from the fall 2010 collection, here is Bronze Libertine next to it.
It’s love at first swatch and I can thank Helen at Just Nice Things for turning me onto it!
Ok I want to know what do you think of this one? How do you like it compared to Bronze Libertine?
