Dior Lucky 659 Nail Polish


Dior Lucky 659 ($23 for 10 ml/0.33 fl oz) has stolen my heart and made into my top three favorites this season (three-way tie with Chanel Distraction & Laura Mercier Cabana). Dior Lucky is a rich pink-red cream. It's one of those shades that's an in-between kind of color. Sometimes it looks pink, other times it looks more red. Either way, it's a stunner knock-out kind of bright that looks great on both tips and toes. I love that it's vibrant and full of life but in a wearable way. It's photographed above on top of a Jimmy Choo ad. I loved the bright nails in that photo and Dior Lucky is a slightly pinker version of what I saw.


Here it is swatched after 3 days of wear (2 coats with Rescue Beauty Lounge's top coat). I found it lasted quite long.




Out of all four shades released with the Dior Color Block nail polishes, Lucky is my favorite and the most unique in my opinion. Yes, it's similar to other bright pinks and reds, but the mixture of red/pink makes it different from most others. Compared below to Dior Cabaret Pink, Trafalgar, Chanel Rose Exhuberant, Chanel Cherry and Pirate.


I have not yet checked out the lipstick partner for the nail color, but you can see it on Makeup and Beauty Blog, Blushing Noir and Beauty Addicted (my newest discovery).

Have you checked out the latest shades from Dior? Did you pick up any nail polishes or Addict Extreme Lipsticks yet?

  1. How fresh! Lucky reminds me of the color of cartooned cherries. AI really like how it treads the line between pink and red!

  3. I simply LOVE this colour too and it lasts so well on the nail (I'm in my 5th day and don't have a single chip). It is really worth the money.
    As for the partner lipstick, I haven't tried it yet and I'm not sure I would like it as it may be too bright for my face.
    I'm just totally crazy about LUCKY nail polish :-) thanks to your posts :-))

  5. I love this color also! I agree that it is a stunner and kind of hard to describe. It is bright without being garish. A completely wearable shade that adds a great pop of color. I was surprised by how much I loved it as I was painting my nails.

  6. I just bought Lucky, too, and it also rocketed to the top of my favorite nail polishes. FINALLY, a gorgeous bright red-coral that doesn't pull fuchsia on me! And Dior has such a great n/p formulation.

  7. I don't normally purchase Dior polishes ( was not impressed with its formula when I last used in 03) but might just have to fibrin to this gorgeous shade. Thanks for the swatches!
