Anyways, it's been a super long time since I've done a review so I decided to do one on these super cute polishes that I've picked up from Daiso after the two trips I've made when in NorCal. Daiso is kind of like a 99 cents Japanese store, but everything is $1.50. I'm thinking about doing a video on Daiso, and talking about how much I like that store (and how there are no locations in the LA area! hmph!) We'll see. ^^
Diamond Nail Enamel *Winwax*
Price/Packaging: A steal for only $1.50 each! I love the packaging of these polishes. They're very slim with a thin, upright rectangular bottle along with a long brush applicator (very Japanese-y in my opinion -- KAWAII!)
Usage: Not your typical glitter polishes. The glitters in these are very fine and compacted, making the color of the glitter as the actual color of the polish. It's a bit shear, but can be built up easily. Drying time isn't as quick as I would like it to be, but it's ok. I don't mind. I feel like I have more control while holding the brushes due to it being longer than most typical polishes. These are great for quick manis.
Typical brush applicator, but it goes on smooth.
See how long the brush top is? I love it. So much control.
They don't have color names, but instead are classified under numbers.
The numbers I have are: 4, 9, and 12
Here are pics of how they look on my nails:
4: The lightest of the three. A light pink, pearlescent color. Super pretty.
9: A cute pink glitter. Kind of remind me of pink cotton candy. I think this color is perfect for the summer. It's cute and girly. ^^
12: A dark gray/black glitter. polish. Very edgy, but still very pretty due to the glitters.
Current mani: Brushed on a coat of my Black Shatter, which I haven't used ever since I picked up a bottle for myself, on top of 9. Seems like the formula got a little thick, but eh...it's alright.
I've always wanted the "Teenage Dream" OPI polish, but never got around to picking it up.
SO, I think this provides a nice alternative. :D
OVERALL: 9/10 - My only complaint would be the sheerness of the formula. BUT, I love how dainty the sparkles are so, I think it makes up for it.
Hope you guys liked this review. Maybe some of you guys have tried these nail polishes too? Let me know what you guys think of them. :] Or the store Daiso in general. Why doesn't LA have a location?? *stillbitter*.
Enjoy the rest of your day! ♡
(Might do a June favs video as well...hmm~)
