At this post, I introduced two Dior vernis nail colors from the Dior Mitzah Collection– Ebony (#912) and and Camel (#622) (23 euros each), which I found during my recent trip to Paris. As appropriate for a small, boutique collection, these colors are edgy and distinct. You will not see them on everyone. Indeed, I anticipate that many Café Makeup readers may not enjoy them when compared to more traditional nail colors.
Personally, I wore Camel for a few days and it made me supremely happy. It’s a very unusual greyed-down medium tone that’s often overlooked in the makeup world. It’s one of the few yellows that I can wear on my warm skintone. It’s warmer than a Grey Poupon mustard tone, rather it is more like a rich cashmere winter coat. ”Neutral with an edge” is one of my biggest weaknesses and so I’ve fallen hard for Camel.
Here is a swatch of Dior Ebony, a deep brown with a touch of grey. You can see that it is much deeper than Chanel Particuleire (reviewed here) and Chanel Khaki Rose (reviewed here). It lacks the green undertone of Chanel Khaki Brun (reviewed here) and lacks the shimmer and green/gold undertone of Dior Czarina Gold (reviewed here).
Whether you enjoy this color is a matter of your personal preference. The formula is excellent, these are beautifully opaque in two coats. These swatches are made without any topcoat.
