Let's start with the brush. The brush that comes with the Dior polishes is just like the brush in Sally Hansen's Complete Salon Manicure and Insta-Dri polishes. I HATE that brush. It's just too thick and weirdly shaped, but that's just me. A brush itself isn't enough to deter me from a polish, because I can always properly do my nails no matter what size or shape a brush is as long as the formula is good. This is what Tuxedo lacked, dearly! The formula was so thick and gloopy and would NOT spread nicely. I am not one to complain when a polish dries fast, but Tuxedo was ridiculous! I had to apply huge globs of polish at a time to prevent it from drying too fast and it was just a mess. By my second hand I was already frustrated and ready to just chunk it, but the color was so beautiful that it kept me going just looking at it.

This is the first time I try Dior, but it was not a good experience at all. I will really think twice before purchasing other polishes from the brand. ^_^
