New Dior Vernis Shades: Tie-Dye Summer 2015 and Peter Philips Collection 2015

May 27, 2015

Dior has some new shades of the Dior Vernis Gel-Shine Long Wear Nail Lacquer out this summer. I have four that I picked out and have swatches to share today. Two of the shades are from the Tie-Dye Collection for Summer 2015 in Sunkissed #239 and Sunwashed #319. The other two are Dior.com exclusives from the Peter Philips Collection called NYC Peach #130 and BKLYN Pink #560 (all $27 each for 10 ml/.33 fl oz).

The four shades are all on the lighter or neutral side, I ordered all of these sight unseen although by now the Summer Collection shades should be readily available at all Dior counters.

  • NYC Peach is a light medium peach cream with a very tiny hint of shimmer
  • BKLYN Pink is a medium neutral rose pink that pulls slightly cool-toned
  • Sunkissed is a soft light peach with a subtle brightening effect
  • Sunwashed is a light summery yellow cream

On me, NYC Peach is very similar to Sunkissed. They are almost identical. NYC Peach is darker by maybe 1/2 to 3/4 a shade. By comparison Sunkissed almost looks pinkish when you put them side by side. Of course, I can’t pick between the two. They both go on super smooth and give the hands a brightened effect which I find is rare with peachy cream shades. They are both beautiful colors, I don’t think you need both.

A few close ups along with finger swatches. All swatches have two coats of the nail polish: 

A full nail wheel of comparison swatches:

I’ve never been a fan of yellow nail polishes, but Sunwashed is a fun color that’s different and light. It is unique and I think appropriate for summer even for the nail polish wearers that wear neutrals – I think it’s fun on the toes. For peach colors, both Sunkissed and NYC Peach are phenomenal colors. If you’re like me, you probably find many peach colors pull brown or warm on the skin and can make the hands look sallow. Both of the new Dior shades have a good mix of white and bright in them that bring life to the hands while still looking peachy. BKLYN Pink didn’t impress me as much when I first applied it. It grew on me as the week progressed. I think it’s a fairly standard pink rose color. I would have loved it if it had some shimmer mixed in or if it was a bit brighter in color. In direct sunlight it looks lovely and bright. In regular light it’s a bit dull-looking (at least on me).

Although Sunkissed and NYC Peach are very similar, I give them both a huge thumbs up. In terms of formula, all of these performed true to Dior’s classic high quality style. Two coats will cover the nail fully and the formula is ultra smooth free of any streaks. Lasting power is very good on me, similar to that of Chanel which lasts 5+ days without tip wear as long as I use a good base and top coat. (My favorite tried and true here.)

You can find the Summer 2015 Nail Lacquers in Sunkissed and Sunwashed at all Dior counters now. Online at Nordstrom, Macy’sSaks Fifth Avenue, Neiman Marcus, and Dior.com.
NYC Peach and BKLYN Pink are exclusive to Dior.com.
It appears all the shades are limited-edition. Have you checked out any of these yet? What did you think? Did you splurge on any of the colors?

  • These are such gorgeous shades I really like the dark pink shade


  • I loved BKLYN Pink on my nails simply because it was so one dimensional and almost matt without being matt. The flatness of the colour wasn't really like anything else I have as so much now comes with extra sparkle, shimmer, duochromes and threads of colour it's quite nice to get back to a basic colour. The Sun Washed looks lovely on you. So many peaches and peaches pinks make my nail beds look 'yellowy' that I just avoid them……especially from Dior. The four new colours from Chanel Les Beiges have to work for me because nothing apart from a Chanel Red is more elegant than a Chanel Beige. I inventoried my Chanel Nail polish at the weekend……over 300 bottles. My hubby is appalled. TBH I was surprised there were that many myself. I do wish you'd post some photos of your nail collections in their bottles / boxes in all their glory. I would be agog! Xxxxx

  • I'm sure I've said this to you before Sabrina but the brand managers of all these products you photograph and write about must have 'soaring hearts' when they see your posts because you make their products look so beautiful and treat them with such reverence and respect. There is no other blog out in cyber world that makes anything look as visually appealing and classy as the standard you set. Stunning work. I really feel like I'm thumbing through a glossy looking at the advert pages. Xx
