Hey everybody, happy Sunday! I hope you’re enjoying some down time and restoring energy!
I promised you to show you some comparison swatches of Dior Vernis and similar shades in my stash. Well, here they are! I’m sorry that two of the three shades I pulled out for comparison are only available in Belgium. However, this is just to give you an idea. With so many spring/summer collections coming out, I’m sure you can find something close enough if you don’t want to splurge out on Dior Vernis!
The first set is OPI Tickle My France-y and Dior Vernis Incognito (257). In the following swatches you can see Tickle My France-y on my index and ring fingers; Incognito on my middle and pinky.
These two are not dupes, but they are definitely in the same vein. Tickle My France-y doesn’t have the slightly transparent quality of Incognito, and it is browner.
Next, we have Dior Vernis Plaza with ICI PARIS XL ONLY YOU Pink Kiss.
Pink Kiss is super opaque, and it is more fuchsia with a stronger blue undertone. Also, if you look VERY closely under direct sunlight, you see a teeny bit of shimmer which Plaza doesn’t have. Plaza has more pink in it compared with Pink Kiss. In the following swatch pictures, I’m wearing Pink Kiss on my index and ring fingers, Plaza on my middle and pinky.
Now let’s move on to the crazy bright Dior Vernis Riviera and ONLY YOU Acid Love.
Again, I love both. While Riviera is flashier and much more of an opaque orange, Acid Love has a jelly-ish finish, and the coral becomes very pronounced in comparison.
The only one of the Dior Vernis I have nothing to compare with is Lucky. Again, I’m sorry that I’m comparing two of the Dior shades to Belgian exclusives, but this is just so you know you can highly possibly find something similar enough if you’re either into the refined Incognito or the hot and fun Plaza and Riviera!
That’s it for today! I hope you guys have had a great weekend. I’ve got very exciting things lining up here, so remember to stay tuned!

PS: The GRAND highlight of my day so far is that Karen from Makeupandbeautyblog features my FOTD in her Weekly Roundup! Also, if you love cats, remember to check out MBB’s Rent-A-Tabby service. It’s hilarious, and who doesn’t want to spend a few days with a handsome tabby in a costume!

The last 2 sets of colors do look almost identical, but I prefer how Icognito looks more since it has more of a pink undertone to it. These are all gorgeous colors though. Thanks for the great dupes 🙂
Hey Rinny, they are very close, but not exactly what I’d call dupes. I’m sure most brands have rolled out similar colors this season, so keep your eyes peeled 🙂
Congrats on the mention on Karen’s blog – that’s so awesome! And great job finding dupes!
Thanks Emi! I actually don’t know why I still check her Weekly Roundup post, because I’m so sure I never miss a single post. But then I saw my blog there and I was like: THIS CAN’T BE HAPPENING!!! Totally made my day 🙂
Congrats Sunny! I remember seeing you over there!
Great comparison shots!
I like Incognito better 🙂 More peachy and less dull
Me too, but that’s something you would (well I didn’t) never have noticed unless you compare the two next to each other! Tickle Me France-y is one of my most-used nail polishes for the past couple of years!
great comparison! I actually think most of these are almost dupes, they are so close in color!
Almost yes! Now you know where to go if you want cheaper alternatives 🙂
SOmmige lijken echt wel! Cool ^^
Ok, i think i need all these nailpolishes!
I know! It’s too hard to make me pick. I love them all 🙂
I just love Plaza! Nice that you compared them!
Thanks Peggy! I have Plaza on my nails today 🙂 Makes me happy just looking at it!
Nice comparisons, I actually don’t have any colors like the first two in my collection at all. I might look for a shade like those!
Hey Tina, you should! Tickle My France-y is one of the oldest bottles of nail polish I still own, and I’ve used it very often (though if I really have to compare I prefer Incognito)!
