Dior Fall 2011 Blue Tie Collection Vernis 908 Tuxedo Swatch and Review

This fall Dior’s loving Blue! Who doesn’t love blue? It’s one of the colors that never go out of fashion, besides for example black and gray. We’ve seen some gorgeous gray colors from Dior this spring. Now let’s fall for blue.

908 Tuxedo is part of the “Blue Tie” collection that’s coming out this fall. It’s a super rich and intense navy blue color that almost looks like black.

The fine shimmers can hide in the shade but not in the sunshine. They’re a bit shy.

Here’s a 2 coat swatch in natural indoor lighting. The coverage is phenomenal that you can certainly go with just one coat. The consistency is super rich and on the thick side. But thanks to the tapered brush, the application is just a breeze.

Here’s another photo taken in the shade with head on lighting. The nails jump out showing deeper navy blue that’s close to black. Note none of these photos show visible shimmers. That’s the same case with real life too. The shimmers are just too shy to show.

With the sun shining brightly both the bottle and the nails give us a cosmic look with shimmers and specks of sparkles. Hello gorgeous!

This is a second swatch picture of the nails with the sun at a different angle.

Finally, let me show you the details of the shimmers with just one finger.

Whether it’s cosmic blue or out of this world blue, Dior gives us a really chic and modern looking blue with sparkles and shimmers. The formula is so superb that the application is so smooth and not only that the finish is super glossy too. Going out for a stroll in the park or even hanging out in a club, this polish gives a lot of sophistication. To get the maximum amount of love out of this nail polish make sure to play around with your nails (after applying the polish) under the sun or lighting to see the shine!

      The woman in the promo picture is using Tuxedo. It’s one of their star items this season.
