China Glaze Black Diamond

Well hello again, my friends! Can you say the end of finals? I certainly can! Bring on the vacation!!

Even though I have been absent, I have not been without polish, I assure you. Well, I take that back - I was for one say, and I felt more than naked... I felt like I was naked AND wearing shoes. You know, exposed AND weird.

I did manage to get some of this little lovely - China Glaze Black Diamond.

I was lemming this one (did I use that term correctly?) for quite some time and finally tossed it in Ye Olde Trans Design shopping cart, you know, because I DESERVED IT. What I didn't deserve was the sheerness of this polish. Four coats? FOUR COATS? Sister, please. I do not DO six coats, especially for a dark polish. You make it in two or you get ignored, Ms. Polish.

So anyway, yes, I loved the graphite shimmer of this polish and I loved the wear, but four coats? No ma'am.

Hint: I think I may have found a sweet, CHEAP dupe. (huzzah!) More to come.

Happy day, all! I have missed you!

I got this too! And noticed its sheerness. I'm not sure how I'm going to use it if I should try layering it with something. I do like the color.

Do you have OPI Baby It's Coal Outside or Essie Over the Top? Not dead-on dupes but close and both gorgeous in 2 coats!

Katherine said...

I thought Essie Over The Top was a dead-on dupe. How are they different?

amanda said...

essense fabuless perhaps?

First off, many apologies for my typos in this post - eek!

@DesertNails8 - I agree with the layering! I think I'll try it over a black in the future.

@Marina - I have neither of the two, so they may end up on my list! Thanks so much!

@Katherine - I'm excited to hear as well!

@amanda - It's so funny you should say that, I just bought fabuless last weekend because I had an ulta coupon. Score! I can't wait to try it, thanks for reminding me of that one!

I just got this polish as well. (Haven't tried it) 4-coater Yikes = insta-chip!

I've had this one for a while, and mine is damn-near opaque in one coat... I don't know why yours is 4! :[

This looks exactly like one from Essence from the denim collection they just released (the difference is the Essence covers in 1-2 coats), but this is still really pretty.

Don't have this beauty. Have a good vacation. You've earned it.

Marina said...

@Katherine - I don't have the China Glaze but in pictures it looks black with silver shimmer. The Essie is lighter, i wouldn't call it black but rather dark gray and it has more shimmer. it may be just me though.
