Dior Voyage Transatlantique Nail Polish and Couture Stickers Duo | Captain 750 and Yacht 210


Dior Beauty has released a Saks-exclusive collection called Voyage Transatlantique which consists of a new highlighter, 5-pan eyeshadow palette, two glosses, two lipsticks and three nail colors. I picked up two of the Manicure Duos in Captain 750 (a vibrant red) and Yacht 210 (a cool-toned nude), both of which come in a manicure set with a mini Dior nail file and nail stickers ($30 each). I spotted the items at Saks Beverly Hills a few weeks ago but they did not have a tester unit up yet and some of the product had not yet arrived in store for sale.


Both Dior Captain and Yacht nail polishes applied smoothly with two coats. I found the brushes to be a bit thinner with these than other Dior nail polishes but the brushes still have the tapered round tips. There was no difference in application for me though. Both were applied with Chanel Base Coat and Top Coat. The stickers look super cute but I found them to be a bit too big for my fingers - at this point I'm still not entirely sure how to use them. More photos and swatches below (comparisons to come in a separate post shortly, but so far no dupes.)



Captain 750 is a flawless vibrant red. It's has a slightly warmer tone than most other Dior reds but it's not orangey. This had a thin jelly like texture but the pigment is very impressive. The application was absolute perfection with one swipe. Below I have it applied with two coats.






Yacht 210 looked like your standard nude cream. However it is a bit cool-toned making it more clay-like but not quite grey. It's a mix of beige and grey cream and doesn't make me look like death. It applied perfectly with two coats.





Both colors are beautiful classics. The colors are fairly simple and seem standard but they apply flawlessly and give a nice clean polished look without extra work involved. Lasting power for me has been very good with Dior nail polishes so far with up to 6 days no tip wear or chipping. (Note there is a third shade called Sailor which is a bright deep blue if you like to collect Dior nail colors, however I passed on it.) Stay tuned for comparisons later this afternoon. Did you pick up anything from the Dior Voyage Transatlantique collection?


The Dior Voyage Transatlantique collection is currently exclusive to Saks locations and the Dior Palazzo Boutique in Las Vegas. Both Manicure Transat duos retail for $30 each for the set of stickers and nail file.

  1. Ooooh, I really love both colours! Great classic shades idd and I love that jelly finish :). I'm not too sure about the nail stickers though, I think I still prefer nail polish over that ^^.

  2. Hi Sabrina,

    When it comes to the new Dior lacquers, I think it's safe to say I'm a part of the Yacht club! Love how clean the finish is :)

  6. I love Dior, especially the nail polishes....but the stickers seem so juvenile.

  8. While the colors are gorgeous, I'm giving the whole nail sticker thing a *side eye*. It's probably just me, but I feel like HE/luxury lines should just say no to nail stickers.

  11. How does this red compare to the orange that came out in Summer 11? I can't remember the name...it was an amazing corally orange. My favorite color of all time. I ran out :-(

  12. I think the stickers/decals just go over the nail? But the stripes are so far, your nails have to be really long. That's not my style but maybe you can cut and shape them to have the stripes sit on the tips of your nails. Kind of a lot of work.
