The Dior Rouge Dior Collection includes 4 Dior Vernis. Three of them have matching lipsticks (Rouge, Trafalgar, Darling), and one has a matching Dior Contour (Nuit 1947). Today I have swatches and comparisons of Nuit 1947 and Rouge to share with you!
Nuit 1947 (970) is a darkened cherry with a tiny bit of silver shimmer that is hard to spot in real life. The consistency is a little thin, and with one coat it doesn’t tend to look even. You might also want to give it a moment to dry before a second coat as well, otherwise it could ball up! However, with a second layer, it evens out and covers perfectly!
Here you see the shimmer on the brush quite well:
Nuit 1947 swatched:
I compared it with two other shades in my stash that I thought would be similar, including Chanel Accessoire Le Vernis and Dior Rouge Garçonne Dior Vernis.
I have Dior Nuit 1947 on my index and middle fingers, Chanel Accessoire on my ring finger, and Dior Rouge Garçonne on my pinky:
As you can see, both Chanel Accessoire and Dior Rouge Garçonne has more brown in them, and the slight shimmer in Nuit 1947 gives it a bit more dimension. Nuit 1947 also has a shinier and almost jelly finish the other two don’t.
Dior Rouge Dior Vernis (999) is a true red. It has the secret shimmer often found in Dior Vernis, which means it’s barely visible in real life. The consistency of Rouge is just right, and it is fully opaque and smooth with one coat!
A true red might not be the best description for Dior Rouge Dior Vernis. As you can see, it has a little something about it that makes it a bit more special (is it the fuchsia undertone we were talking about?).
I compared Rouge with Dior Marilyn Diorific Vernis (limited edition from holiday 2012) and Guerlain Rouge d’Enfer La Laque Couleur.
I have Rouge on my index and middle fingers, Marilyn on my ring finger, and Rouge d’Enfer on my pinky:
I see a very subtle difference in the undertones, but the difference isn’t very big. Both Marilyn and Rouge d’Enfer have great formulas, but anything pales a little in comparison with Rouge!
Bottom line: I wouldn’t say Nuit 1947 or Rouge are the most unique and must-have nail polishes around, but they are both gorgeous and timeless shades with great formulas, and I don’t have exact dupes in my stash. If you’re into the matchy-matchy thing or looking for a dark cherry/true red nail polish, they are for sure worth looking into!
Would you wear and love Nuit 1947 or Rouge?
