Old swatch: Diamond Cosmetics Silver Brocade


Or "Why I Think Brushstrokes Can Be Awesome."

Diamond Cosmetics Silver Brocade



I don't do nearly enough swatches of cheap thrill nail polishes these days... so to atone for that, here's one that had been laying neglected in my untrieds box. This one is a real stunner! Everyone always gets all irritated by brushstrokes in metallic polishes but this is one where I think the brushstrokes make the polish: otherwise, it'd be like any other bright silvery polish. I love the textured finish! Two coats. As with most Diamond Cosmetics polishes I've tried, it went on very easily. This one was a two coater and it looked awesome going on, like molten metal.

I'd love to see what this looks like with a top coat - and as a matte!

This is an old post? It's actuallity is right there, after Chanel's fashion show: every model was wearing silver. Or holo. Who knows. This really suits the brush-strokes, though. :)

This is a beautiful silver. For some reason I'm wondering what it looks like matte. And/or used for Konad.

gildedangel: thanks!

Toxin, Jackie, mKat: I'll try to do a post sometime using it and a regular topcoat and a matte topcoat!

lacquermanic: I do a lot of swatching at once so this swatch was actually probably from about a month ago, which is why I called it old. :)
