Dior Bird of Paradise Collection Vernis Nail Duo in Samba (001) & My 1st Water Color Manicure

Hello :)  Today I will show you swatches of this Dior Samba Duo plus my first try of watercolor nails.  The duo consists of  minis of 7ml/0.23 fl. oz. each.  I bought this set online at Nordstrom.  Let's take a look at these photos :)

2 coats of 792 - a metallic peacock green with green shimmer - photos show NO top coat - no issue with application/formula
A gorgeous shade but I don't really like it on me
2 coats of 402 - a turquoise creme - photos show with top coat since it was a bit streaky
This was love at first sight !! Although, it isn't the most unique shade but I still loved it !!
Here comes my first watercolor nails - used Ultra Violet & Riviera on top of 402
I seriously love 402 (the turquoise creme) !!  By the way, I only purchased this duo.  

What do you think of the duo?  And honestly, my watercolor mani?  I will need to practice more with the technique as not very happy with these, and with different color combos too ...

Thank you for dropping by :)

Hi Vicky, I Love your watercolor mani!!! As for the Dior: the turqoise is absolutely stunning. I did not buy it for myself though because also for me, the peacockcolor doesn't look too tempting,
