Good afternoon! I hope everyone is having a great week. Today I have two pretties from Azature, the luxury nail brand made famous by their $250,000 and $1,000,000 bottles of polish. Azature’s “regular” line is definitely more affordable ($25 each…which is still a splurge) and comes with a no-kidding black diamond in every bottle! I snazzed up my swatches of Sky Diamond and Cobalt Diamond with a diamond-patterned accent nail (of course!).
Cobalt Diamond is from the Winter 2013 release. It’s a deep, rich blue shimmer. The formula on this one is amazing…really smooth and creamy. Apply and remove it carefully though. This has smurf cuticle potential! I’d definitely wear a base coat too.
As the name suggests, Sky Diamond is a soft sky blue. The base is slightly frosty and loaded with ultra-fine blue glitters. The formula is a little sheer. I used three coats with a little VNL still showing in some light. Like all Azature glitters I’ve tried, the finish is crazy twinkly in the sunlight and my indoor shot doesn’t do it justice!
I started with tape to create the accent nail, but ended up doing some freehand touch-up so the diamonds lined up. Both manis are finished with one coat of G&G HK Girl topcoat. So what are your thoughts? If I’m going to spend big money on a polish, I’ll usually reach for a Dior. But there are some special Azatures that are certainly worth the indulgence. Plus, they make a great gift. (How often can you say you gave someone a diamond!)
Azature Sky Diamond and Cobalt Diamond are available now. Azature polish retails for $25USD and is available on HSN and at Selfridges, Harvey Nichols Saudi Arabia, and Ron Robinson. Keep up with Azature releases and promotions on the web, facebook, twitter and YouTube.
