Happy Hump Day! Ok so we are about halfway through the week and inching towards the weekend, so just hang on! I have some more new (to me) polishes from a company called Diamond Cosmetics.
Diamond Cosmetics started back in 1982 mostly selling lip and eye pencils to drug stores and retail chains. They have since expanded to three different divisions which include retail, professional and private label that sell a variety of cosmetics. Their professional division, which sells the Flossie Diamond nail polish, started in 1988 and sells their products to beauty supply distributors and salons worldwide.
They have about 140 different nail polishes and quite a wide range of colors as well. And here is the best part; most of them are only $2.00 each!! The colors below are their newest ones for summer 2009, hope you like!
Cotton Candy is a pretty shimmery medium pink with a dusted kind of feel. It didn’t look all that special in the bottle but I really liked it on the nail. The formula was really nice and thick, but not clumpy. This was three coats.
Pink Passion is a very flattering medium pink creme. This is a wonderful color for a summer pedi and I liked it a lot on my fingernails also. The formula was a little thinner on this, but still nice and smooth. This was three coats.
Oh, Tiff! ROCKS! I love Tiffany blue and anything resembling it makes me happy. Now you will see from pics below it isn’t the exact shade of Tiffany blue and can’t be anyway because that color is a trademark of the Tiffany Company. But it’s damn close. You may be wondering if this is a dupe for China Glaze For Audrey and I would say basically yes with one exception. This has a very subtle shimmer when in the sun. The application of this is far better than FA. This is thinner and applies more evenly than FA, though it still is a little thick and requires a light touch. My FA came out a lot streakier than this, so I like this better (plus it’s cheaper). This was three coats and check out my comparisons below.

Hot Summer Pink
Hot Summer Pink is very appropriately named. This is a vivid fuchsia with lots of light blue and silvery shimmer. I didn’t think I would like this either, but I do! This was three coats.
Don’t Teal My Heart Away
Don’t Teal My Heart Away is a nice medium teal that has a muted or dusty effect. This teal leans more towards peacock blue rather than green. I really like it and it is darker than a lot of the teal’s we have seen lately, which makes it a keeper in my book. This was three coats.
Also if you buy this polish, Diamond Cosmetics will donate 25 cents for every bottle to the National Ovarian Cancer Coalition, who are trying to raise awareness about Ovarian Cancer. Ovarian Cancer awareness month is in September so let your fellow females know! You can find out more information about this by going to the Teal for Toes website.
You guys know how I feel about corals by now, right? Well Fiery Coral is a little different. This is a very red/pink coral, it’s not in the “tangerine” category, so it actually worked with my skin tone. It also has a nice shimmer to it, much like Hot Summer Pink does. Three coats.
If you would like to find out more about Diamond Cosmetics and check out more of their polish colors check out their website here. As I mentioned before, almost all of their polishes are $2.00 and the rest are only $2.50!
