Today I am wearing Mulberry Mayhem from the Diamond Cosmetics Winter Collection. I painted a lovely, yet nameless, holographic glitter from a Blue Cross snowman as the funky french.
Mulberry Mayhem is a pink and purple chameleon. As the progression of photos shows, the color ranges from a bright raspberry to a deeper mulberry shade, dependent upon the light.
A bright yellow ginkgo tree for your pleasure.
Wearing Mulberry Mayhem made me appreciative of classic shades. With the concentration I placed on autumnal colors and Halloween nail art in October, it was pleasant to return to a basic berry creme. While my tastes tend to venture to unique colors, I am glad Diamond Cosmetics sent me this polish to review. It makes a pretty base for nail art. What I am most enjoying about the application is the opacity and pigmentation of the colors. You know the feeling of painting the first coat and knowing with certainly your manicure will be complete with two? I wish the ladies at Diamond Cosmetics would contact OPI and give them a tutorial on creating an opaque formula. Mulberry Mayhem is available for $2 at diamondcosmetics.com.
The little snowman from Blue Cross is such a delight! My friend Lisa found him in the sparse beginnings of the holiday aisle at Rite Aid. The application isn't perfect. The jelly formula seems a little sticky to work with. It doesn't glide across the nail the way I would have expected. It's still workable. I find the finished look too pretty to deter you from purchasing. I would recommend using this polish as a layering note. There is a striking mix of hexagons, silver, magenta, and holographic glitter particles. I don't have anything quite like it in my collection.
Happy painting, ladies!
