Diamond Cosmetics – Decadence NOTD

Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 21 - 2010

So, Diamond Cosmetics nail polishes have had rave reviews across the pond, and I thought it was high time I picked up a couple for myself!

The first one I’ve tried is Decadence.  The picture below was taken with sunlight streaming through the window, so looks a bit warmer here than real life.

A neutral toned brown shimmer that goes nicely with a cool skintone.  The shimmer is strong as you can see and I love it.  I suppose it’s more of a cool bronze than a plain ol’ brown because of the sparkles.  Note, this isn’t glitter – just shimmer.

I had no issues with application and applied 3 coats to achieve opacity (I apply fairly thin coats, so it may only take 2 coats for you).  The finish is smooth and glossy.  After 3 days (the photo was taken on the 1st full day) I have no chips, but tip wear is quite extensive on a couple of fingers.  We’re talking 2mm easy.

Still, the polishes are priced at £3 each, so I was still pleasently surprised by the quality of the formula and finish.

Have you checked out Diamond Cosmetics polishes yet?

    I love it. It looks like a cheaper version of a Rococo one I was eyeing in Space NK yesterday. Diamond polishes are good for the price but I do find the formula can be a little hit and miss.

    Huh — is it just me, or is brown a colour that you don’t often see in polish?

    Either way, this is just gorgeous ^^

  6. Oh man this is SO pretty. I dont even like bronze or brown nail polish and I like this! Weirdly enough I adore bronze and brown eyeshadow but loathe nail polish in the same colours.

    Not bad for 3 quid, eh!? I like this, i’d wear it on my toes but it wouldn’t suit my hands.

    Oh this polish is so pretty! So much so that I have placed an order for four polishes and a glass file 😉

    I just love brown nail polish and it’s so hard to find!
