Diamond Cosmetics Concrete Jungle and Starry Night

Diamond Cosmetics sent me two new polishes a few weeks back to review along with some treatments including a matte topcoat. I didn't have time to review the treatments but I did manage to get some swatching in the other day!

Diamond Cosmetics Concrete Jungle
This is the lighter version of the RBL polish of the same name: a greyed-out light blue creme. Two coats, a bit thicker than usual, but still easy breezy. It seems a little plain to me though.

Diamond Cosmetics Starry Night

I thought this was going to be a somewhat boring black but it's actually surprisingly pretty. It goes on smoothly in two coats and is very glossy. But what's surprising is that the sparse shimmer inside the black is actually iridescent. Some other blogger (I'm forgetting who it was) described the shimmer as "oil slick" and I think that's a pretty apt description. The video shows how the shimmer reflects light.

I will have the results of the Orly Sweet polish giveaway on Monday! With the extra Tweeting and all, it's going to take me a little bit to organize how to randomly pick the winner. :) I REALLY appreciate everyone who participated... thank you so much. And thank you so much for doing my survey! It will help me a lot. I do have a second survey in the works that I hope to have up before the month is over... and with that, several more polishes to give away! :)

Black = Yes.

I actually like the look of concrete jungle, though i wish it had been a little darker :)

@Katie: actually, while the Dior formula is much better (IMO, I love the Dior Vernis formula), I do think the DC polish is prettier than the Dior (which is flat and kinda dull when you apply it to the nail).

@Heidi and mKat: I'm glad you like it! Totally worth it for $2.25.

@poshnail: thanks!

@Arrianne: LOL! I actually stay away from black polishes because it stains my cuticles so badly when I'm taking it off. I wish I didn't because I love the way it looks.

@Rhea: nothin' a couple drops of Wet n Wild black wouldn't fix. ;)

When it comes to nails women are looking for a quick solution that makes them look wonderful. It's hard to answer which solution is the most advisable but I just know that Polish perish can satisfy the most intrinsic need of women. I found out this after studying the product and after that my quest ended up in other medical products like Viagra Online that enhances the sexual nature of men.
