Dior Aventure & Pandore Vernis

Dior Pandore (754), Aventure (551) Vernis

We have gone over the new Dior Addict Fluid Sticks and one of the limited edition Addict Extremes, so how about the Dior Vernis that match the four it-shades? Oh I’m glad you asked! I have two gorgeous shades here to show you, including Aventure and *Pandore!

Dior Aventure 551 nail polish

I might not have mentioned this, but finding the “perfect” coral nail polish is for some reason even trickier than finding the perfect coral lipstick for me. A lot of coral nail polishes are basically orange on my skin tone. That’s why when I swatched Dior Aventure Vernis, I had to pick it up!


Dior Aventure 754 Vernis

I feel like pretty much every time I write about a Dior Vernis, I tell you the formula is spot-on. Well, that’s because it’s true! The consistency of Aventure is not too thin and not too thick. It flows across the nail easily, and it is impeccably even. Two coats will make this darling coral pink opaque.  It has some secret shimmer that you don’t really notice. Much like the previous formula, this still dries very fast!

I am beyond happy that I finally found a great coral nail polish!

Dior Pandore 754 nail polish

Pandore (754) is a warmer red with secret shimmer. This hot red will wear well in summer. I think it’ll look particularly great on tanned toes!

Dior Pandore 754 Vernis

Pandore is amazingly saturated. It is pretty much opaque with one coat! If you need to do a manicure/pedicure fast, Pandore would be an excellent choice.

I’ve been thinking I might need Wonderland, a beautiful watermelon pink. If you prefer something that makes more of a statement, the bold radiant orchid type of purple, Mirage, might be right up your alley!

Have you picked anything up from this release?

    Aventure has a namesake lipstick in the new formula too right? Its soo pretty! Both these colors are making me get lip products of the same hue so badly! 😛


    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Divya, YES! Aventure is available as Addict Fluid Stick, Addict, AND Addict Extreme! I personally think the Addict Extreme is the closest to the nail polish shade, and I’ve been wearing it A LOT :)

  • http://www.noodlesdoodleswithpretties.blogspot.com 38noodles

    Both look lovely, but I only picked up Aventure since I was feeling the bright watermelon colour. But Pandore is looking more and more lovely though…… 0_o

    Oh Snap! I’m blogging too…

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha I’m still thinking about Wonderland. I don’t even know why I still buy nail polishes, since I really don’t wear them that often!

      Oh yay! Checking it out in a sec!

  • http://truecolorjoy.com truecolorjoy

    ooo… i do love Aventure and Wonderland Fluid sticks… and the bf does love coordinated looks….

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      LOL looks like you need to pick the Vernis up! I think I might go back to Wonderland one of these days… :p

  • http://naturelbellefemme.blogspot.com Pinks (@naturelbellefemme)

    Amazing bright colors. Loved the Pandore color very much <3


    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      It’s a great red for summer!

  • http://papayapieces.com/ Sofia

    I like them both! Aventure is so pretty!!! And believe it or not but I’ve never worn RED nail polish. Pandora looks like a good nearly read that I could easily get used to. (sort of like getting used to wearing red lipstick haha).

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Oh red is a new thing for me, too! I used to think it’s really old-fashioned, but it’s just classic and you can’t go wrong with it :)

      • http://papayapieces.com/ Sofia

        I think exactly the same!

  • Bella

    I know what you mean by coral pulling orange!!! I love these polishes; I have Aventure, Wonderland and Bonheur. I am currently travelling for two weeks and rotating these three. lurve!!!!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Bella! Yaaay so nice to hear from you! Glad to hear I’m not alone in this “corals pulling orange” thing. Guerlain Nahema for example, is really just a bright orange for me!

      I might have to pick Wonderland up… soon :)

  • http://www.beautybellenotes.com/ Olivia B.

    Such beautiful shades, really bright and perfect for spring.

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Olivia, I agree! They’ll be great for summer as well!

  • http://lipstickintheattic.blogspot.com/ Judith

    They are both very similar, but if I had to choose I’d go with aventure. I don’t have any coral nail polish in my collection

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Judith, NO??? Oh you need to rectify that situation ASAP!

  • http://brushandbullet.com/ Teresa

    I’ve only started wanting to wear pinks and reds and corals in the last year or so — I usually prefer greens/blues/purples. You written so many good reviews of the Dior formula that I’m totally sold!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Teresa, Dior Vernis has always been my favorites! I have become really spoiled by how fast the formula dries that everything else doesn’t seem to dry fast enough for me! The new brush is even easier to work with than the old one. If you see a shade you will wear a lot, I personally think it’s worth the price difference :)

  • http://www.beyoutifulblog.com Silke

    Oh my, coral nail polish harder to find than a perfect coral lipstick?!
    My search will never end!
    All jokes aside, the colours look great! Mirage looks quite interesting aswell.. I’ll check it out!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Silke, for me it really is, because most shades pull almost entirely orange on me!

      You should definitely look into Mirage if you’re interested in a statement shade :)

      • http://www.beyoutifulblog.com Silke

        Well, I definitely will. I tend to keep everything very nude (apart from lipsticks! ) so I could do with a statement nail polish!

        • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

          Oh for sure!!! You definitely don’t risk being overdone :)

  • Charlotte MacDonald-Gaunt

    Lovely sunny and happy shades :o) Xx

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Charlotte, I agree! They’ll wear well in spring/summer!

  • http://redhotjillypeppers.com/ Redhotjillypeppers

    Both perfect for summer !

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      I agree! I’ve worn Aventure a couple of times :)

  • http://www.abeautifulzen.blogspot.ca/ jenn @Abeautifulzen

    pretty!! since i dont really do my nails, i dont purchase high end nail polish but i always do like looking at them on other people’s nails. glad you found your perfect coral Sunny! its always so satisfying when you find just the right color. at least, it is for me :)

    A Beautiful Zen

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Jenn! I know. Most coral nail polishes I own are basically orange on me. Glad to find one that isn’t!

  • http://www.hellojaa.com/ Jaa

    Oh how I wish I could wear bright nails to work and no one would look at me like I’m from a different planet! Aventure is such a pretty and fun shades but look at Pandore! I’d totally wear that! It makes your hand look really clean and polished!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      LOL really? People stare at you? Are scientists more casual in general?

      Red is almost always great! I really love Dior 999 for autumn/winter, but Pandore has a better spring/summer vibe :)

  • http://www.vibrantbeautyblog.com/ Jennifer Monforton

    Ooh, both of these are so pretty! Pandore especially. Perfect shades for Summer :)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Pandore is such a great summer red :)

  • http://beautyreflectionsblog.com TracyBeautyReflections

    Perfect corals for you Sunny!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks, Tracy! I’m glad I FINALLY found Aventure!

  • SprinklesOnACupcake

    I am a coral lover, especially during summer!! Love these shades!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Yaaay! High five! Aventure is on my nails again :)

  • Dominique33

    Gorgeous np ! Pandore is awesome, I love Dior gel formula, I did my pedi with Captain;) but before that Pandore was on my nails ( toes ), I am a huge fan of that colour both vibrant and wearable. Aventure is very pretty too. :)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Yaaay Captain! A friend wrote to me today and said she got it, too! I’m digging Aventure big time. Just removed it from my toes a couple of days ago, and now it’s on my nails!

  • http://www.lenallure.com/ Lena L

    Wonderland in nail polish would be beautiful! But surprisingly, Aventure is pulling quite strong! A stunning shade on you. :)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      I know! I so want Wonderland! I’ve got Aventure on my nails and I looove it :)

  • http://www.thepaintedrogue.wordpress.com Syirael

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha I know. Give me a coral and we’re good :p

  • http://macaronsandmischief.com/ Whitney

    pandore is so pretty *___* I have a similar colour from Essie, i haven’t worn it since last year, time to bring out the corals and reds again! 😀

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny
