I've always been a little bit of a tomboy but all girlie-girl if that makes any sense to anyone but me. When I saw this collection from Diamond Cosmetics I just had to have it. The price is always right, or so I thought, at Diamond Cosmetics, so I prepared my order only to be halted by the $15.00 flat shipping fee. That seemed rather steep to me...but a month later, after seeing a few other shades I wanted, I bit the bullet and ordered.
I won't order again until there are at least 15 bottles I'm lemming from Diamond Cosmetics, that's the only way to make it worth the shipping! (Which, now that I think about it, is probably their purpose for the shipping fee.)
On to the polish that turns out to be worth every penny of the less than $5.00 per bottle spent.
We begin with Bite Me, a rich red shimmer that has depth and glow. This is the perfect Holiday red. It's one of those "glows from within" colors. It's a red I actually like, and I'm not one to wear many red lacquers. Lizard rating: Toasty!
Next up we have "How Rude". A nude shimmer. The shimmer is golden. It gives this nude almost a sunset appearance. I have "Desert Sunrise" somewhere in my collection and will compare it in the near future. I'm not a big fan of nudes, but I like the way this one looks. Lizard Rating: Tepid
From there, we move into the only creme in the collection. "Karen's Got a Gun." This is a green gray like Pantone PMS 5753. I love it. It's like a darkened Rescue Beauty Lounge "Diddy Mow." An odd color, but it's actually neutral and extremely complimentary to my skin tone. Lizard Rating: Toasty!
Next up: "Pay Up" another foil/multichrome with the same properties described above. This one leans more deep antique gold from a distance and changes
That brings us to the FLAKIES!!! Yes, there are two of those in this collection. First up is "Drama Queen" which is a really pretty steel gray blue shimmer with multicolored flakies. This one is cool. Work safe even yet has a bit of drama. Hence the name perhaps. It's a lovely color and I've not seen this shade done with flakies by any other polish company that I'm familiar with or can get in the USA. Another Sizzling! rating from the Lizard. I'll wear this one again and again.
