Being a neutral gal, I was hesitant about Tuxedo since it's so dark and blue. However, one glance at the tube alone made me want to take it home.
Each of the nail polishes come with a shiny silver cap with the Dior logo on top.
Tuxedo is a blue with blue shimmer. Dior drew inspiration for this shade from its own packaging, which the SA puts it as "the Dior blue".
Beige Safari is a light beige pink with very very subtle shimmer.
Here they are on my nails. The shimmer in Tuxedo and be seen really well in the sunlight.

As you can see, Dior translated Tuxedo into their signature "Dior blue". Indoors, Tuxedo looks like the dark blue base of the box. In sunlight, the blue shimmers makes it glisten like the lighter "CD" logo on the box. It is a really beautiful shade of blue.
The image taken with flash shows the pink tone in Beige Safari. I can't really see any of the shimmers on my nails either.
Here is Tuxedo in the direct sunlight with it's super pretty shimmers.
Tuxedo's formula is super easy to use, smooth, and goes on opaque with only 1 coat. I find that 2 coats looks better because the shimmers are more visible.
I really like the shade Beige Safari but the formula
Bottom line: Tuxedo is a true winner from Dior's Fall 2011 collection. I highly recommend checking out the shade at your local counter. Although I can't wear this to work on my nails, I can see myself rocking a pedicure with this in no time. I think Tuxedo will be sold out fairly quickly. As for Beige Safari,
