Dior Nail Polish Turns 50 This Year!
Dior Vernis, the iconic nail polish known for its stay-put formula and precise brush, celebrates its 50th anniversary this year! Dior was the first couture house to launch a nail polish in 1962, with one of the first slogans stating, "Today, the four shimmering letters of Dior have come to the tips of your ten fingers." Fast forward fifty years later, and the 2012 lineup boasts 25 distinct shades, including the designer's personal favorite, Red Royalty #999 (pictured, $23; dior.com).
