‘cos Diamonds are a girl’s best friend.

Posted by Lipglossiping On April - 9 - 2011

For the love of all things shimmery, creme-y and smelling of solvent will someone PLEASE stock Diamond Cosmetics nail polishes in the UK again?

It was a dark, dark day when Flashy Nails closed and took with it the last (as far as I’m aware) of the UK stock.

Let’s have a quick recap of what we’re missing…

Yeah… we don’t really need much more convincing than that do we?  But just incase you do…

And some of the ones I haven’t gotten round to swatching yet…

Did I mention these used to retail at around $2.50 a bottle in the U.S.?  Don’t make me beg now…

.

So, UK ladies – are you with me?  Who do we have to bribe with fudge to get our own way… and just how much fudge are we talking!?

    Somebody definitely needs to stock these again! I need that first polish in my life. As in, ‘NEED’ – not just ‘want’!

    That first one is GORGEOUS! It looks like you’ve got stickers on your nails. That sounded far better in my head and is actually a compliment. What I mean is, it doesn’t look like a polish.

    I have added these to my list of things to buy when in America. If you want me to pick you up any shades, let me know and I’ll bring them back for you.

  10. I love Diamond Cosmetics’ nail polish! They have such a huge variety, are good quality, and are cheap! I don’t think they get enough attention, but maybe they would if they were available to everyone!

    Are there any stores that sell these in the US? I live in the US I have not heard of them before and it doesn’t say on their website where they sell them here. They look awesome and they are so inexpensive, and I so need more nail polish xD

    • I’m not sure if these are sold in brick and mortar stores in the US I’m afraid. I only know that you can get hold of them online – stop making me jealous! ;)
