Today we have a luxury edition of Swatch Monday. Why do I say that? Well, if you follow me on Instagram, you might know that not so long ago, I received a wonderful package from Azature. I don't have words to say how happy I was, because I've heard so much about them and I was dying to try out their famous Black Diamond nail polish.
In 2012, Azature launched on the market the most expensive nail polish in the world. One bottle of that nail polish contains 267 carats of black diamond and it's worth $250,000!! Later, that year, they also launched a consumer friendly line of polishes that cost only $25 and that contains a single black diamond. AZATURE nail polishes DO NOT contain: formaldehyde, DBP or Toluene, they are Cruelty Free & Vegan.
As I said in the beginning of my post, I was very excited to try them out and see if they really are as good as they claim to be. When I first opened the beautiful box that they came with, I was a bit sad because nude polishes are not exactly my cup of tea. Of course, I spoke before I tried them out and boy, I was so wrong. I received: Diamond Blush, Latte Diamond and Champagne Diamond.
The formula of these polishes is to die for. It's a little on the thin side, giving you the chance to build up the color. Even the glitter polish, had a great formula and we all know how's the deal with glitter polishes. Once applied, the polish dries pretty fast and that is why I suggest you to move quickly when you apply it, that way you can avoid any stripes that might appear.
Diamond Blush is the perfect every day nude. It's a gorgeous pale baby pink that gives a perfect coverage after only 2 layers!! I was afraid that I will have to apply this one in minimum 4 layers but this wasn't the case.
Diamond Latte is the perfect creamy light taupe with a subtle silver sheen. It's such a gorgeous shade and goes perfectly with Blush Diamond. Again, 2 coats were more than enough for a perfect coverage.
Champagne Diamond is the polish that stole my heart. I am not a fan of glitter polishes but this one, oh my God, is just too gorgeous. This polish is the perfect mixture of tiny silver, bronze, copper and gold particles that are suspended in a clear base. You won't believe it, but with this one also, 2 coats are more than enough to reach full opacity and if you look at it in the sunlight, you will remain mesmerized. The sparkles are so intense, that indeed you will think of the bubbly and sparkly champagne when you look at it.
Of course, I had to use all 3 of them for a manicure.
Now that I got the chance to try them out (thank you so much Azature!), I can honestly say that I understand completely why everybody talks about them. The quality is amazing and I think that every nail polish collector should have at least one of these babies in her collection.
What do you think of Azature polishes? Have you tried them out?
