Diamond Cosmetics Cherry Tobacco

This is another one of those polishes that I really, really wanted, got, decided I didn't love it, discovered it a year later, and fell back in love.


Diamond Cosmetics is an awesome brand.  They have pretty cool, yet standard colors, excellent customer service, amazing prices ($2-$2.50 a polish!), and a nice formula.  What I don't like is the fact that you can only buy these babies online.  Ugh, shipping prices.


Anyways, Cherry Tobacco is aptly named: a really rich, super deep red-based brown infused with golden red shimmer.  The shimmer is somewhat visible in natural light but you wouldn't necessarily see it unless you were looking for it.  With direct sunlight or flash, the golden red pops and glows from this polish.  Don't you just love when a polish glows?


I honestly don't remember if this was 2 or 3 coats, so my apologies.  Diamond Cosmetics' formula is somewhat on the thicker (although never gloopy) side and covers really well.




Really gorgeous, right?

  9. I was thinking this looked like an OPI too, but I can't think of the name. I think it may be one from the India collection...?

  17. I really, really want that polish. ^_^ However, while you mention Diamond Cosmetics are sold online, I can't find them (other than just a few on ebay) with a simple google search. Where do you get them?
