Dior Vernis nail color available at DFS Galleria include a mix of Anselm Reyle for Dior enamels, and below, Spring 2012′s “Aloha.”

After interviewing International Dior Pro Team artists Galvin Lin from Shanghai and Ivan Chiu from Taiwan this morning at DFS, I couldn’t resist trying the new Dior Vernis colors, a different one on each nail.

A couple of colors, including the vivid, high-gloss “Aloha,” at left, are from the Spring 2012 Garden Party collection, and the remainder (pictured below) are from the Anselm Reyle for Dior limited-edition collection.

The Anselm Reyle collection is exclusive to New York City, Miami and DFS Galleria Honolulu, where the two makeup artists will continue to conduct makeup demonstrations from 7 to 10 p.m. daily, through Jan. 8.

Only 80 of the hand-pressed camouflage eyeshadow palettes are being sold here, at $110 each. There are even fewer bottles of the various Dior Vernis colors available, so if you see a color you like, better get it fast.

Lin, popular among Chinese celebrities, is often featured in fashion magazines such as Vogue, Bazaar and Elle. Chiu is a former photographer who is famed for his ability to find each individual’s beauty and play it up. Both are involved in international runway shows.

While here, they will launch a new patterned eye shadow inspired by the Dior Anselm Reyle Collection, exclusive in Hawaii to DFS Beauty World, 330 Royal Hawaiian Ave.
