Dior Vernis Nuit 1947 #970

September 19, 2013

I spotted Dior Nuit 1947 ($24 for 10 ml/0.33 fl oz) on This That Beauty’s Instagram here and here and fell in love. I ordered it as soon as it popped up online. Dior Nuit 1947 #970 is a dark vamp with a jelly finish. The texture makes it on the sheer side. It applies with a see-through finish that can be a bit streaky with two coats. Applying a third coat seemed to be a must for me to achieve a rich dark even finish.

If you look closely at the bottle you will see very subtle shimmers. It’s not really visible on the nail except at certain angles.

Here it is swatched with two coats:

Here it is with three coats:

More with three coats:

I’m out of nail wheels so I wasn’t able to do a lot of comparisons. Among the vamps I pulled I did find Dior Nuit 1947 to be the deepest richest vamp with three coats. The look is very similar to many other vamps though. Unless you have direct sunlight shining on your nails, most of the vamps look identical in natural light. Here are a few comparisons I pulled to Chanel Diabolic (d/c), Chanel Western Light (limited), Chanel Rouge Noir (d/c) and Chanel Strong (d/c).

No flash, under artificial light:

I really like Dior Nuit 1947. It is a bit high maintenance since it definitely needs three coats. The finish is rich and glossy though. If you have a lot of vamps I don’t think the new Dior is a must-have. It’s very similar to other classic vampy nail colors.
You can find Dior Nuit 1947 now on Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus and Sephora along with all Dior retailers.

  • I love that Dior. Maybe better than the chanel!

  • I love this color definitely one of my favorites for fall (:

  • Oh I just posted about this one today. Your pictures are gorgeous! I was able to get a good finish with two coats but you're right, three would make it perfect so I'll try next time. What I'm puzzled by is the fact that mine doesn't show any shimmer and you're not the first to mention this.

  • Love it! <3

  • Want! Such a chic, classy shade!

  • love this vampy color <3

  • Two things I love – vampy nails and Dior. Sold!

  • Kristina

    In your lovely photos, it looks just like Diabolic! I do love it in your photos and normally adore Dior polish, but I've kind of sworn off any polishes that require more than two coats :).

  • What a beauty!! I love Rouge Noir so I'll be sticking to that. I think this is too dark and almost black so I'll be skipping it – unless I swatch it in a counter and find myself attached. Hihi. Love your clean beautifully-polished nails and lovely fingers, Sabrina!

  • Perfect for fall!
    I love your Chanel nailpolish collection! Would be awesome if you could make a post on it. )))
