Dark red is one of the unofficially official colors of fall. The deep vampy shade is perfect for coordinating with apples, cherries, and your upcoming vampire costume.

Not all reds are alike. So, when picking out a vampy red, consider your current wardrobe and the tones you’d like to bring out. Some reds work well with berries and browns, while others are so dark, they can blend in with your all-black outfit.

Best of all, when you’re ready to change out the longwearing color, just reach for one of the 26 colors available.

DIOR’s Vernis is the luxury brand’s signature line of nail polish. The shade 047 Nuit 1947 is a deep reddish pink. The autumnal color is more than an aesthetic polish that you slap onto your nails. It’s made with a blend of ingredients that benefit your nail health. 

This nail polish is infused with peony and pistachio extracts. Fun fact, pistachio extract is a source of vitamin E. Vitamin E is a nourishing ingredient that alleviates dryness. 

Another benefit is the ergonomic brush. The brush allows for you to get to more of your nail with each swipe while also making sure that each nail has an even amount of coverage.
