It Only Takes a Minute To Fall for Dior Minuit Vernis Nail Polish, Especially If You Love Chanel Taboo

Dior Minuit Swatch

Could you please wait a Minuit? I forgot my toasty cat lady socks and boots. I’ll be right back…

There! Got ’em. Now we can proceed. 🙂


But that reminds me, I would seriously consider freezing my toes off in strappy sandals just to be able to show off Dior’s new $26 Minuit Vernis nail polish.

Notice the cute limited edition packaging…

One of four Vernis polishes in the new Dior Golden Winter collection, it arrives with the rest of the release on counters next month.

Methinks Minuit will reel in the gals who loved last summer’s Chanel Taboo (like me). The two look quite alike at first glance, thanks to the dark purplish burgundy base, but Minuit is also swimming in golden micro glitter.

See the tiny golden flecks?

And yet the glitter doesn’t dominate. Yeah, there’s a lot of it in there…but you can still see see the base, which I like, and the formula remains smooth and easy to apply.

Depending on the light, Minuit can also look completely different, like when I’m “working” in my office (also known as “the bathroom,” haha!), Minuit looks like a warmish burgundy/reddish purple, but when I take Tabs for a walk outside on a sunny day, it looks more like a cool, plummy blackened purple.

Another shot o’ Minuit

Minuit also changes depending on how many coats I wear. One coat conveys more burgundy, while two coats, more purple, and I like it both ways.

Dior definitely did not hold back on the pigment… There’s a lot in there.

Mo’ Minuit!

I recommend using Minuit with your favorite base coat, as the formula really hugs each nail, which can emphasize ridges if you have ’em.

Also, while Minuit does shine, it’s not exactly Seche Vite, so if you crave a mirror-like shine, incorporate a top coat (I like Guerlain’s Le Top Coat Gel).

This stunner’s totally worthy of a fancy holiday party…or for a night spent eating Three Twins Ice Cream in your pajamas on the couch. 🙂

PRICE: $26

    It’s exactly what I was hoping for! I’m loving shades like this around the holiday season together with some golden acents. Great colour and the bottle is just too pretty! ^^

  3. Natalie says:

    This is such a beautiful color! And the bottle is beautiful too. What base coat do you like? My nails always chip so quickly, I want to try some new nail stuff to prolong wear time.

    This is gorgoeus but I think I prefer the “galaxy-ness” of Taboo. However, since I never got a chance to pick up Taboo, this is a great alternative.

    Thank you, I’m buying this one anyway, but since you have liquorice (and I’ve always wanted that one), can you tell me if they’re alike? Thanks. 🙂
