Today I am wearing Amethyst and Diamonds, a violet frost with holographic glitter. This lovely shade is from the Diamond Cosmetics Holiday Collection. Amethyst and Diamonds is a mix of various elements I adore. The base color makes me think of the Victorian language of flowers and antique reproduction postcards with embossed bouquets and fanciful lettering. The addition of holographic sparkle gives me confidence that this is the perfect nail color for a faery queen.
As always, the pictures can be enlarged by clicking. If you are accidentally transported to faery land by doing so, I am not to blame.
My nails are so reflective with sparkle. I feel like I could make faery dust whirl through the air by moving my fingers. A bit of whimsy!
I discovered a rose blooming by the wrought iron fence.
It was temperate and sun filled day. I encountered a beautiful array of leaves in every color as I walked past Fitler Square.
Amethyst and Diamonds was opaque in two coats. The finish, while not quite as perfectly smooth as Blue Diamonds, was shiny with one coat of CND Air Dry. My nails show a little more texture with Amethyst and Diamonds, but it is nothing to trouble this tester or a faery queen on promenade. Amethyst and Diamonds was sent to me for review.
The Holiday Collection is currently available at diamondcosmetics.com for $2.50. These are currently located at the bottom the page with the color chart. I think I would prefer to see the new collections at the uppermost portion of the page.
I was informed there will be a restructuring of prices in January. This is not cause for alarm as each polish will show a price increase of 25 cents. The formula on these is fabulous for $2.50. I think I can spring for the extra quarter in the new year!
Happy painting, ladies!
