DIAMOND COSMETICS REVIEW - PART 2

Today I have the second installment of the Diamond Cosmetics review. Let's take a look at the four colors I did last night:



TWINKLE TWINKLE PERIWINKLE

This color reminds me so much of Finger Paints - Lilac Lagoon that I just wore a few weeks ago. I even included a picture of Lilac Lagoon for comparison sake. TTP doesn't have the amount of gold shimmer that LL has, but the base colors are almost a perfect match. I applied two coats of TTP and there were no formula issues at all. I really liked this color!

TWILIGHT VIOLET

How freakin pretty is this baby? This was my favorite of the ones I tried last night. I love the shimmer that alot of the Diamond Cosmetics polishes have. This one was no exception. I did apply three coats of this one to remove all traces of a visible nail line, but on shorter nails I think two would have been ok. This was one that I was wishing I would have done last so I could keep it on for my NOTD. I just LOVE it. Very pretty.







LEMON YELLOW ZEST

Ahhh, Lemon Yellow Zest - what can I say about you? I did not like this color at all. In the bottle it looked ok, but on it just had a weird look to it. It could be that yellows just aren't the most flattering on me, but I just thought this color was ugly. This is the only one that was a pain in the ass to apply too. I know yellows tend to be streaky, but this one seemed a little over the top streaky. I know that if I would have paid money for this I would have been disappointed. Nothing about this one worked for me.





HUE ARE YOU?

This one was the one I was most excited about just looking at the bottles. This one has a TON of gold shimmer in it that really stands out against the dark red/maroon base color. When I wore this one it reminded me of rust. It really kind of has a little duo chrome thing going on, where it flashes different colors on the same nail. I had a little application issues with this one, but I can't really pin point what it was. As you can see this one is a little messier than my other swatches, and that's the issues that I had with it. Other than that, this was opaque in two coats and is most definitely a very unique color.







Again, I have to say I am still pleased with this brand of nail polish! I think this is a great product for an even better price at $2.00. I am glad that I did get a dud in the bunch with Lemon Yellow Zest, so that you guys know that I speak the truth on these polishes. These really are good. I have noticed that none of the bottles list the ingredients though and I am not entirely sure if they are on their website either. I don't usually check the ingredients, but I know some of you do (NIXXY) so that could prove to be a problem. Other than that, I say GETCHA NAILS DID with some Diamond Cosmetics!

MARY - Thanks, you too!

RAI - I think I saw a special they were doing, buy 10 bottles of polish and your shipping is under $5. I have an email in to confirm this though.

KITTY - Thanks! I am excited to see what colors you have.

All pretty! I think that yellow looks like you dipped you fingers in egg yolk. Hue Are You is so beautiful. Love all that shimmer in it. I'm making a list for these polishes. It's getting longer!

Helen said...

Lucy you are so right, I thought egg yolk as soon as I saw that.

Personally I love Hue Are You, and Twinkle Twinkle Periwinkle. Yum.

Well, that's $4 towards my $250 order, hehe.
