When Dior revamped their Vernis line, they not only redesigned their brushes, but also reformulated and renamed some of their permanent shades. One of them is Safari Beige, formerly Nude Chic. To perhaps bring about more attention to this often overlooked nude in today’s nail polish trend where bright and wild colours are in vogue.
Safari Beige is a cool-toned nude with a strong pink undertone. Typical of Dior’s solid colors, it has silver micro-shimmer that is not visible unless scrutinised under bright light. I imagine those with pale, pink-tinged hands could achieve the trendy “mannequin hands” with Safari Beige, where nude polish close to your own skin tone is worn. Cool-toned complexions (who look best in pastel shades, silver tones, blue undertones, etc.) will enjoy this more; you can see that it somewhat clashes with my very yellow, warm-toned skin. w
Its consistency is a semi-opaque jelly. It applies sheerly and unevenly on the first coat, which is typical for this formula. I’m wearing 3 coats in these swatches, but I was able to get away with 2 careful coats on the other hand.
BOXED : YES
