Dior Cosmic is one of 3 limited edition nail colours they released for summer 2016. Somehow, that release slipped my attention. Then, on a recent shopping trip to check out the new Fall collections (I’ll tell you more about that tomorrow) I discovered this bright coral stunner. Fortunately, it’s spring here in Australia so this vibrant colour with a fabulous shimmer and slightly holographic effect will be on high in rotation in the long warm days ahead.
Formula: the new-generation Dior Vernis formula that plays up the gel effect is fantastic! It’s very glossy, highly pigmented and fast drying. You only need 2 thin coats to get full opacity.
Application: flawless! The signature Dior flat rounded brush has the precision to get very close to the cuticles and makes application easy.
Finish/Colour: a warm, vibrant coral creme with utra fine shimmer and a delicate holographic effect.
Nail Art: very easy to work with and suitable for nail art.
Dupes: there are some dupes that are similar in colour, but they don’t reproduce the delicate chrome effect and silver micro-shimmer. So there are no exact dupes. To compare it with Dior Pivoine, Cosmic’s coral shade is warmer and lighter. Pivoine‘s shimmer effect is much stronger and more visible on nails.
Wearability: Very long lasting, 6 days with a top coat.
Extra Notes: You have to wear at least 2 coats of protective base coat, the red pigment is so strong it can stain your nails.
Overall Impression: If you love coral and bright manicures in general, Dior Cosmic is for you! It’s striking, yet elegant with a flawless formula and beautiful packaging. Winter ranges are coming which typically means a lack of colour, so my advice to all you nail art warriors is to stock up on brights while you can!
Wearing: Platinum Knuckle ring.
So, what do you think about Dior Cosmic? Are you a fan of this bright coral nail colour?
