Azature is a brand that launched last year with something kind of crazy – the world’s most expensive bottle of nail polish which was $250,000 and had 267 carats of black diamonds inside!
But now you can wear Azature Black Diamond Nail Lacquer and pay MUCH less! They currently have thirteen shades available and each one contains one real black diamond in it.
I didn’t know what to expect from this brand since I didn’t know much about them. But I am really blown away by how amazing the formula and colors were. The formula is rather thick and incredibly opaque. Nearly just one coat each. The colors are super intense and pigmented, shimmery and amazing. The bottles are definitely not like any other shape I have seen either.
Azature Blue, Azature Green
Azature Blue was inspired by the blue diamond’s intensely hued shade, which symbolizes balance and inner strength.
This shade is such a pretty deep navy blue and filled with blue shimmer and holographic glitter. The holo glitter is mild, not a big in-your-face effect. It was incredibly pigmented and I really only needed one coat, but I did a super thin second one.
Azature Green was inspired by the green diamond, one of history’s most coveted gems, with astonishing depth and unmatched beauty.
This green is so much better in person than in photos. I took a zallion pics trying to get it right but it just doesn’t translate exactly. It’s a very bright green but also deep and rich. It’s just uber-glittery, shimmery and emerald colored. Amazing. I think it’s one of the best emerald green shades I have seen in a very long time. This was also thick, but not quite as thick as the blue one. I used two thinner coats.
After removing Azature Green
One thing they warned me about was that Azature Green is so pigmented (designed for a celebrity manicurist to use on set) that it can stain. I used a base coat and still with it on just 10 minutes or less, I got a lot of staining. No biggie, it usually wears off me in a day.
Overall: I love these two shades! Not only is the formula really pleasing to work with, the colors are so intense and shimmery. I am definitely looking forward to seeing what else they come out with in the future.
Pricing: $25.00 for .5 oz.
Ok so yes, it’s not $250,000 but still it’s $25.00 which is definitely on the high end for nail polish. Would you splurge on any of these or are they just too expensive for you?
