It may come as surprise to see a Dior nailpolish review here on Scent Hive, but is there really a “natural” nailpolish? I don’t think so. There are a few on the market that might be considered cleaner as they are waterbased. But their staying power is greatly lacking. I love Butter London and Priti, two well known brands for being “Big 3 Free“, but so are most brands these days, and Dior is one of them.
I bought this after seeing Karla Sugar‘s post as the chocolatey purple color looked so gorgeous on her nails. I totally agree with her “kalamata olive” comparison and find that it reflects both bronze and steel in the light.
If my beauty blogging photos were up to Karla’s par, the above shot would be minus the smudge on the cap. Oh well, you get the idea.
All pics take by me. New World Purple was formerly known as Aztec Chocolate.

What a pretty color! I actually just painted my nails a dark purple from Zoya thats shimmery but I love the metallic reflection on that one more. Leave it to Dior!
I’d never really paid much attention to Dior nailpolish, but wow! they do make some nice colors don’t they?
LOL! You’re hysterical. I didn’t even notice the smudge on the cap–until you wrote about it!. I love the color, and your fingernails and toenails look perfect! x
Oh jeez, I should have kept my big mouth shut, LOL 😉
Love this color! I did not know Dior nail polishes are 3 free and I just went to Nordi’s to return one for a butter London polish. Good to know:)
I think most nail polishes are these days. So what Dior color did you get? 😉
I really like that color for Fall! I like your assertion that most polishes are 3-Free nowadays because I think brands that tout that fact know that consumers really don’t know that most are. I really don’t see much of (if any) difference between “safer” solvent-based nail polishes and regular nail polish, besides the price.
I could not agree with you more! I read somewhere that nail polishes have to be 3-Free to be sold in Europe, so that’s going to be a lot of department store brands I imagine.
That color is great on you! I fear it would not look so good on my pale skin, but I’m tempted to give it a shot.
Thanks Natalie! I think it would look great on pale skin. Maybe a little goth, but beautiful nonetheless!
Slightly goth is okay by me! 🙂
Me too 😉
It looks very pretty on you. : )
Thanks so much! And thanks for stopping by 🙂
I’m a lurker, Trish. : )
That makes two of us, love to see what’s up at ARS Aromatica!
Great color! I use something slightly more reddish for my pedicures, almost year round – OPI Russian to a Party.
Thanks Julie! Love the name of that OPI polish 🙂
