Dior Wonderland #575 Vernis Gel Shine Nail Lacquer

June 8, 2014

Dior Wonderland #575 Gel Shine Nail Lacquer ($25 for 10 ml/0.33 fl oz) is a beautiful warm vibrant pink nail polish from the new Gel Shine formula line. There are a number of different shades released in this new formula, however some are exclusive to certain stores (see nail wheel swatches here). Wonderland #575 is one of those classic shades that is available at all Dior locations.

It’s a bright summery color that has a slight hint of silver shimmers in the bottle. On the nail it applies like a cream. The coverage of Wonderland is like a jelly with good pigment. It has a semi-transparent finish but covers the entire nail with two coats. The Dior formulas continue to get better in my experience. As noted in some previous reviews of the Gel Shine Formula, these have a lush glossy finish with impressive lasting power.

I applied it on my own on several occasions over the past few months. My favorite combination was to use this on top of the Sephora Formula X Base Coat and the Dior Gel Top Coat on top. My manicure lasted 5 days without any tip wear.

Swatched with two coats:

I pulled out a number of other warmer bright pinks to compare. Dior Wonderland proved to be almost identical to Chanel Tutti Frutti and Fracas. All the pinks pull really similar on the nail wheel. The differences in real life are slight:
  • Tom Ford Indiscretion is darker and more rose
  • Chanel Tutti Frutti is slightly warmer and more coral with a golden shimmer (more pigmented) 
  • Dior Rose Cabaret 563 (discontinued) is slightly more pink
  • Chanel Fracas is a bit more blue and has gold shimmers (more pigmented)
  • Chanel Rose Insolent is more blue in undertone
  • Dior Plaza (discontinued) is significantly cooler with a visible blue base

You may find color of Dior Wonderland to be too close to other Chanels to justify owning. I know some find better wear with Dior, I personally find them both to be of similar quality and lasting power. The Dior Wonderland has a slightly jelly finish. The color has enough warmth in it to make it super flattering on a wide range of skin tones. The Chanel colors by comparison are slightly more opaque with a more complex shimmer infused.

Dior Wonderland #575 retails for $25. Available at all Dior retail counters and boutiques. Online at Nordstrom, Sephora, Neiman Marcus, Bloomingdales, Saks and Dior.com. For swatches and review of other shades, check out swatches of 16 Colors, Front Row and Tra La La.
