Sophisticated (which is, although part of this year’s autumn collection, not available in Europe, as far as I know) is a cherry red with “crelly” finish, hence crème and jelly hybrid.
I applied two coats.
I’ve obviously been into matte nail varnishes during Fantasy Filmfest. Here is another one by Dior, Rouge Matte, which is actually the legendary Rouge Altesse (or just “Rouge) 999, but in a matte version. Gorgeous.
Red AND matte. You got me! Two coats shown below.
I’m back from Fantasy Filmfest (although I was in Hamburg all the time, of course, but spending time at the movies for almost 12 hours a day is somewhat different …) and, being super crazy about this horror and independent stuff, saw all of the 54 films. 😉
Right now I am wearing Jungle Matte on my nails, which is a brand new Dior. So they ae doing mattes now and kind of re-invented this finish with a formula that is super easy to apply and dries quickly. No gritty surface – just pure matte. Jungle Matte is a nude beige (or light brown) colour.
Daylight, two coats (no top coat, of course).
So here’s the third of this year’s nail varnishes for autumn by Dior. Metallics is a grey metallic (obviously 😉 ) shade, containing a hint of lilac.
Two coats shown below. Depending on the light, you might notice a slight lilac shimmer. Although I like Paradox, I think Metallics is my favourite regarding this collection. It’s more complex.

I’m almost on the way to catch my train to Hamburg, but not without showing you Paradox. Green with grey and shimmer, creating a metallic finish. At first glance I felt reminded of Black Pearl – and how I like green-toned shades. However, Black Pearl has a bigger proportion of green, while the shimmer of Paradox is more prominent.
Two coats shown below.
When I went to Alsterhaus on Tuesday, to check whether the ladies at Dior know anything about the autumn collection, they were actually expecting me: A drawer was opened, showing three nail varnish boxes with my name attached. Surprise! I was speechless and impressed. 🙂
Today I had Enigma on my nails, which Dior describes as champagne shade, but in my view, it’s more rose gold, or even rosy beige (it certainly has a beige undertone), although with champagne bits of glitter.
Application was two coats. Summer seems to be over and I took the photos outside while it was raining and under grey clouds.
A single raindrop on the lid. 😉
I have the feeling it’s never going stop raining; it’s already the second day with nonstop rainfalls, and I actualy thought we’ve got summer! Today I got up at 5.40 in the morning, in order to catch the train to Hamburg … and got so tired in the late afternoon. 😉 So I am back in the big city for two days.
Printemps – Été 2014 at least alludes to summer, also in terms of its colour, which is a bright carrot shade. Moreover, it is the exact colour of Dior Mango. Believe me, not a tad different.
So here is Printemps – Été 2014 on my nails, two coats.
See? I told you so. 😉
