Dior Fall 2015 Dior Vernis in "791 Darling Blue", "001 Miroir", "701 Metropolis" & "785 Cosmopolite": Review and Swatches

Disclaimer: The products featured were provided for review.
Hi everyone! Today I am swatching up some beautiful nail colors from Dior's Fall 2015 Collection. Designed to give the nails a playful yet chic touch, this limited edition Dior Vernis ($31 CAD) range features four new colors and one permanent shade. If you are a fan of luxurious jewel tones, get ready because you are in for a treat!

791 Daring Blue:
This is a deep royal blue with beautiful blue shimmers. The formulation is smooth and buttery, almost opaque with one coat. I used two coats for the swatches below.

001 Miroir:
This is an absolutely gorgeous white silver chrome. The pigmentation is quite impressive, it's pretty much opaque in one coat. The finish is a tad streaky on bare nails so I used a base coat and the result? Fabulous! Check out that reflective shine!
I also tried topping this with a top coat but I find the gloss takes away from the foil finish.

701 Metropolis:
A smoky light forest green, Metropolis has some subtle silvery sparkles. This one is slightly sheerer compared to the others, but two coats provided a beautiful opaque and shiny finish.

785 Cosmopolite (permanent shade):
A unique rosewood cream, Cosmopolite is rich and smooth. The pigmentation is impressive and the finish is nice and shiny.

All four shades are absolutely impressive. "Miroir" is a must-have if you've been looking for the perfect silver chrome. My personal favorite is "Cosmopolite", it's such a sophisticated red and the application is just flawless.
There is one additional shade from the collection that I don't have a swatch for. It's called "982 Black Out".

Dior Fall 2015 Collection is available in stores starting August 2015.
