A few weeks ago Sarah from the Belgian blog Cherry Plum Sky was holding several birthday giveaways. To my own surprise I was one of the lucky winners! I received a fun surprise package of five Diamond Cosmetics nail polishes. This was my first experience with the brand so I was really excited to try it.
From left to right: Plum Pie In The Sky, Cheery Cherry, Very Berry Smoothie, Orange Blush, Marigold.
Plum Pie In The Sky – This is a dark greyish purple. I really like this shade. I love those “it looks like it’s black but it’s not” type of shades. This had the best formula and application out of all of them for me, I used two coats.
Cheery Cherry – I had really high expectations when I saw this in the bottle, sadly the pink shimmer is less visible on the nails. In the sun it’s more visible but still not quite as stunning as it looks in the bottle. I needed quite a few coats for this one, I believe I used four.
Very Berry Smoothie – This was my favourite out of the five shades! A lovely dusty pink sort of shade. It looks less bright in person than it does in my picture. I used three coats.
Orange Blush – This is a bright jelly coral. As it’s a jelly you already know which word is coming next… sheer! Like, really sheer. I used so many coats I can’t even remember the number. Probably about five! I think this could be great for layering. Jelly sandwiches anyone?!
Marigold – I really liked this in the bottle but it was such a pain to apply. It’s a sheer cream, not a jelly, so there’s no excuses Diamond Cosmetics! This could be a lot opaquer… It is a very beautiful shade of yellow though, it’s got a hint of orange to it. I won’t even tell you how many coats this was.
Overall they were a bit hit and miss for me, some I really loved, some I loved a little less. My favourite was Very Berry Smoothie, right up my alley! I would like to thank Sarah for hosting the giveaway, thanks so much for this great prize.
