Just in time to swatch the new Diamond Cosmetics Spring 2012 collection!
Diamond Cosmetics Cherry Blossom, Tiger Lily, I Love Iris, and Cactus Flower
Diamond Cosmetics Cherry Blossom (2 coats, natural light)
Pale cool-toned pink creme. In the bottle it looked very similar to OPI Pink Friday and as you can see, its just a shade lighter. I'm curious as to how this would compare with Ciate's Strawberry milkshake. Formula was easy to work with. I haven't been big on pinks until recently, so I'm glad to have this to close the pink gap in my collection.
Diamond Cosmetics Tiger Lily (2 coats, natural light)
Creamy orange with a silvery micro-shimmer. I thought I would love this more than I actually did. I think the silvery shimmer puts me off a bit, silver and orange aren't my favorite of color combinations.
Bottle shot! Looks really close to Butter London Bossy Boots. Threw the minty ORLY in just for fun
Diamond Cosmetics I Love Lily Comparison (Natural light 2 coats on each swatch)
Warmer and slightly darker than bossy boots. Jealous, Much? is just in there to show how non-minty these colors are. I do love pale greens of all kinds!
Diamond Cosmetics Cactus Flower Comparison
Look at this gorgeous microshimmer!
Cactus flower is in the same color family as Caitlin and Grape Gumball. Zoya Lotus was much darker and less blue toned. Cactus flower pulls the most blue of them all.
I couldn't capture the microshimmer very well. In person it's still fairly subtle but far more noticeable than in these pictures.
Macro to see the beautiful shimmer! Gah, I love shimmery cremes so much!
I forgot to do a non-macro bottle shot for this. But it is part of the Diamond Cosmetics Fall 2011 collection. Head Over Teals. Natural lighting
Indoor lighting, varied coats (2 and 1). This polish is so thick, I'd recommend only using 1 coat. 2 makes it really lumpy and the creme is too thick to let the glitter really shine through.
Indoor lighting (1 coat with 2 coats Seche Vite)
Indoors, this teal pulls more green. In natural lighting, it's bluer. Gorgeous teal!
