Diamond Cosmetics Oh, Tiff!

Oh, Mondays.  So not a fan.


What I am a fan of, however, are aqua mint cremes.  (Smooth segue, eh?)  Lately, I just can't seem to get enough of the shade, in all its glorious variations.  While the world was first introduced to this pretty color via China Glaze For Audrey, I ambivalently chose to test this shade through it's Diamond Cosmetics dupe, Oh, Tiff!  


I really like Diamond Cosmetics: the customer service, the prices, the shades, the formula.  All spot on.  And so was Oh, Tiff!  While at the time this was a stretch for me, I've come to really value this classic aqua pastel that really flatters any skin tone.  The creaminess is simply perfection and as much as I love a good shimmer, I think anything added to this would somehow detract from its simplistic sophistication.


The formula, like I said before, is amazing.  I bought this polish in my first Diamond Cosmetics order about two years ago and even today it still maintains its thick yet smooth application.  There's also something really durable about the feel of the bottle; like a nuclear war could go off and this is the brand that would survive the carnage.


This is two coats.




Apart from the fact that I adore this shade, brand, and formula, I'm also pretty happy about the fact there is enough blue in this base to avoid lobster hands, which I find I'm so easily susceptible to with almost any color these days.  This is the perfect color to fend off the "mean red."  Bonus points to any one who gets the reference.


If you're interested in purchasing any of the Diamond Cosmetics shades -- which I highly recommend -- check out their site here.  All polishes are $2.50 (unless otherwise noted) and shipping is a flat $5, from what I remember.

  8. Your "mean red" reference made me smile :)
    This colour looks lovely! I have a tendency to buy too many polishes in this colour though, and I'm trying to resist, since For Audrey really is only one I keep coming back to.

  10. I certainly am, Ms. Wood!  And yes you do.  Not quite indie or glittery, but I'm sure you'll find one or two that you love.  I recommend Chainmail Charm for you.

  12. It's a small company based out of Florida, although I'm not sure if they ship worldwide.  Definitely worth taking a look at though!

  15. I'm glad to "meet" another true Breakfast at Tiffany's fan :)

    But I completely understand what you mean: if your heart is set on For Audrey, then don't waste your money on a second best substitute.  And that's really for anything.
