dior spring 2016 nail polish swatches review

The Dior Spring 2016 is easily the most anticipated nail polish collection of the new season. The irresistible colour range of 3 limited edition pastels,  Dior Lilac, Bleuette and Garden with a splash of  shimmering bright coral Dior Pivoine is the epitome of spring!

Dior polishes are always top quality with a great brush and flawless formula. So far I’ve never had any issues with them and this collection is no exception.

If you’re new to Dior or simply interested to know more about each colour and its performance, we’ve got a full review for you below.

DIOR SPRING 2016 nail polish swatches


Formula: 5-free, extra glossy, fast drying and long-lasting. It’s on the thinner side formula-wise, so you’ll need 3 thin coats to get these polishes fully opaque. All swatches – 3 thin coats with 1 layer of a top coat.

Application: As always, these Dior polishes were a dream to apply – fast drying, flawless formula and extra-wide soft brush with rounded ends. If you have small nail beds, you may be even able to apply the polish in one stroke.


  • Dior Gardena washed out pastel grass green creme with a very subtle shimmer effect, opaque in 3 coats.
  • Dior Pivoinea neon coral jelly polish with a strong bright pink shimmer, opaque in 3 coats.
  • Dior Lilac – a classic pastel lilac pink cream, opaque in 3 thin coats.
  • Dior Bluettea light pastel blue creme polish with warm undertones and a very subtle shimmer effect, opaque in 3 coats.

Dupes: The closest colours to Dior Lilac is OPI Look At My Bow and Picture Polish Dream, Dior Bleuette is very close to OPI Gelato On My Mind. Dior Garden and Dior Pivoine don’t seem to have any dupes. I’ll add dupe photos tomorrow here and on Twitter – so if you’d like to see dupes, please return or find me on Twitter

Wearability: Lasted for 5 days with top coat.

Nail Art: Dior Spring 2016 nail polishes have a flawless formula and are perfect for any kind of nail art.

Overall Impression: Dior Spring 2016 nail polish collection is a stunning set of 4 limited edition colours. As always, flawless formula, great brush and easy application. The most popular and flattering are Dior 301 Bleuette and Dior 491 Lilac. You might already have some similar colours in your stash, but if you’re a true Dior Addict then you’ll get them anyway! They are limited edition, after all.

Dior 302 Garden is a very interesting colour but may not suit fair skin with cool pink undertones. If you like brighter colours, Dior 650 Pivoine is an absolute must have. It doesn’t have any close dupes and looks incredible!

Availability:  Dior Spring 2016 nail polishes are available online US $27 – here and here,  £19.00 – here and in Australia AUS $41.00 – here. Be quick, guys, these colours are flying off the shelves.

Wearing:  Gregory Jewellers Mint Amethyst and Orange Citrine Tycoon rings (loaned for photo shoot).

What do you think of this collection? Will you be getting any and if so, which colour do you have your eye on?
