Dior Vernis Gris Trianon 306 (Trianon Grey Spring 2013 Chérie Bow Collection)
|January 19, 2013||Posted by peach_ under Dior, Limited Edition|
In a collection full of pink, pink, and more pink, Dior Gris Trianon is the black (well, grey) sheep that everyone had their eyes on in the Spring 2013 Chérie Bow collection. Despite light grey being one of Dior’s iconic colors, the brand had been parsimonious in releasing nail polishes in this shade…until now.
Can grey be a “nude” color? In this case, I think so, and this seems to be the perfect one. Gris Trianon is a light dove grey crème with a warm beige undertone. Application starts sheer on the first coat, but built up to full opacity on the second coat.
When I first applied Gris Trianon, it looked like a slate grey, in the bottle and on the nails. But placing it next to Gris Montaigne, which is much more neutral (and also much darker), you can clearly see the warmth of Gris Trianon. It has a beige or even mauve undertone depending on the lighting.
This warm undertone complements the skin, which is why I’m calling this a “nude grey.” It blends nicely with the skin, in the best way that a grey can.
What do you think of Gris Trianon? Do you have a favorite grey nail polish?
