‘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’!

  2. OMG they all look stunning! I am going to have to hunt those down when I am in the US next.

    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.

  8. Vijaya says:

    I live in the US and have NEVER seen these. Time to go polish huntin’!

  9. Renee says:

    Ohh I love that first one – and I’m in the U.S. but it’s out of stock due to color formulation issues! NOOOOOO!

  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!

  11. Joy says:

    They look gorgeous! I love the first one :) That sucks that they don’t sell this brand in the UK xx

  12. Kerrie says:

    Oh my, these colours look amazing, such a shame they aren’t sold in the UK :(

  13. They are delectable! Where do I sign up to start the fudge bribery? 😉

  14. Jo Tee says:

    Ugh, these swatches are amazing. My favourite is the first!

  15. Brittany says:

    Honey, yesssss. Diamond Cosmetics are just spectacular. I LOVE them!

  16. PonPon says:

    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
