ManGlaze – Mayonnaise & hot pinks to stamp with!

This was some experimenting I did before the french manicure that I posted in my last post!

First, I put a layer of ManGlaze – Mayonnaise on, so that I could see what these hot pinks were going to look like over white!

Here is a swatch, its a matte white polish with some shimmer!

Here were my hot pinks and one neon green I was going to try while I was at it:

From left to right, those are Color Club – Screamin Fucshia, Konad – Psyche Pink, Sally Hansen – Sonic Bloom, a Kiss nail art polish in Bikini Coral, Revlon Scented – Raspberry Rapture, Sally Hansen – Orange You Cute, Zoya – Ali, Illamasqua – Lament, Diamond Cosmetics nail art polish in neon green, Essie – Pink Parka, and Zoya – Lolly

The 3 on the right didn’t work at all (Diamond Cosmetics nail art polish in neon green, Essie – Pink Parka, and Zoya – Lolly)! But all of the ones on the right did!

Here they are stamped with the new bundle monster plates!

Diamond Cosmetics – Joust for Kicks

This was the last one from my Diamond Cosmetics haul. I have so many polishes left to swatch now, its ridiculous. I have this Nordstrom bag here with some wedding planning stuff and I started putting the polishes I would pick up or order in that bag, waiting for the next time I was swatching for my blog. Now the bag is like half full of wedding planning stuff and half full of nail polish. haha!

Anyway, here is Joust for Kicks! It looks too bronzey for me in the bottle, but once it is on the nail, it is SUCH a gorgeous brown!

Direct sun doesn’t bring out the bronze either, it just brings out the chocolate brown. I’m loving this one.

I hope they come out with some new colors soon. They are seriously so affordable for such an awesome B3F formula, it makes me want more!

Diamond Cosmetics – Coffee Tea or Me

I love that their polishes are big 3 free, so cheap and easy to buy online!

This one is a great taupe color that I don’t have yet. Its different from the popular taupe cremes that are out there most often, its almost like a gingersnap cookie!

I’ve been in love with good taupe-ish cremes lately, so I’m happy to have this one!

Its really making me need to rush off and make my coffee though. Must. do. that. now.

Diamond Cosmetics – Concrete Jungle

I’ve been looking for a gray creme that had blue in it but wasn’t too bright or too dark… this one is just what I wanted!

I keep thinking I can make a franken if there’s a color I want so badly and can’t seem to find from any brand. I’m glad I found this one, but I have SO many polishes to make my own perfect colors… I have to keep that in mind for when I get some time to play around with my nail polishes a little more. 🙂

Illamasqua – Scarab

I have 2 other colors that are very similar to this one, so I was going to swap it, but the formula on this one is so much better that I have to keep it! They make such luxurious polishes, don’t they?

This one is a very nice blood red burgundy color with shimmer!

I had also gotten Diamond Cosmetics – Cherry Tobacco and decided to compare it side by side:

I love the Cherry Tobacco but it just looks too black unless its in very direct sun, so I was bummed about that.

By the way, I am SO sorry my server was down this weekend. My ISP actually disconnected my cable because someone else in my apartment complex moved out and they thought they were disconnecting their line. I was so angry, I told them I knew it went out because their service guys messed up mine while someone else was moving out or in, and they still made me wait all weekend for my appointment. The guy that came to fix it this morning said he put a tag on my line with my apartment number so it won’t happen again. Argh.

Diamond Cosmetics – Cotton Candy

I got my first set of their polishes from them! They didn’t have labeled bottles, which was odd to me, but they did put their sticker on the bottom at least! I got some good ones, but I wanted to post Cotton Candy first since I’m putting that in my giveaway which starts tonight!

Its a really pretty pink with a lot of shimmer! I couldn’t capture the shimmer as much as I wanted because the sun was going down, but its so cute!
