I finally swatched the Diamond Cosmetics09 Holiday Collection. Lets take a look at the colors.

This was my favorite color of the bunch. The finish of this color and Diamond's Diamonds are the same. They both have that flat, flaky type glitter to them. Rubies has a slight goldish tint to it as well. I think this is a very Christmasey red and I really liked it.

My second fave of the collection. This is a really bright blue with small to medium amount of holo glitter sprinkled through out. This is not a holographic polish, just a polish with holo glitter. I really liked the brightness of the blue. At first you might not think this is a holiday color, but it did remind me of an icy blue, so definitely I think it belongs in this collection.

This is the same type finish as Blue Diamonds, with holo glitter. This color I liked, but I wish for me personally it was just a hair darker. This sort of fell into a spring type color for me since it was a light purple. I also didn't really see if fitting a tradition Christmas or winter color, so it sort of stuck out in that way. However, as far as the names of the collection, it fit right in since Amethyst is a gem.

This is full of small, flat flaky, shimmery white pieces of glitter, I guess you call it. This reminded me of sugar, like I had a thin layer of sugared icing on my nails. I didn't like this on it's own since I am not a fan of sheers, but layered I can really see myself liking this color.

I liked this collection as a whole and love that DC is really listening to what we nail polish fanatics want. And while the holo is not just chock full in these polishes, they are available for $2. The flat flaky glitter is really shimmery and festive, and I really like the way it looks on my nails.

I still don't have a release date for this collection yet, but as soon as I find out I will let you all know. When this collection does become available you can purchase them direct from Diamond Cosmetics website.
