Dior does a tribute to red with Vernis nail polish colors
If red nails are a significant part of your mani-pedi routine, then you’ll be pleased to know that Dior has come out with a tribute collection that's all about the warm and seductive shade.
Each of the three shades is inspired by red elements of the house’s history.
Trafalgar is an orange-y poppy color that pays homage to the red dresses Christian Dior would send out during the middle of runway shows for dramatic effect.
Gruau is a color based on the work on fashion illustrator and longtime Dior collaborator Rene Gruau, specifically the Dior Ispahan dress from the fall-winter 1947 collection.
And Icone is an iridescent reddish-brown inspired by the Atout Couer dress from Dior’s spring-summer 1955 collection.
Nails are a convenient and inexpensive place to incorporate red accents -- a hot trend for fall -- into your look.
Dior Vernis red collection, $22 each at Dior counters.
