Diamond Cosmetics-Sparkling Sherry

I feel like I'm wearing DC every other mani. I promise this is the last DC for a while. At least I think it is. We'll see. Anyway, I got this about a year ago, the same time I bought Decadence. I don't know why I waited so long to wear it because this polish is AMAZING.

Sparkling Sherry is a dark magenta pink foil. The pictures don't do it any justice. It's like a grown up sexy pink. That's how I think of it. The formula is...weird. In the bottle it can separate a bit and you have to shake this up good to get it to mix again. And when I say shake I mean shake. Rolling won't do it. But the polish itself is great. Went on my nails like butter, not thick or thin. It was pretty perfect.
I did two coats, but I only needed one. And the drying time? Can we say fast? One of the fastest. If you only did one coat you'd be done with your nails in ten minutes. Maybe that's a bit of an exaggeration, but not by much. The two coats didn't take all that long to dry either. The only thing is that it doesn't dry all that shiny. It's not matte or anything, just that the shine in these pics happened with top coat and when you put it on you can see a difference.

I love this so so much. It's pretty perfect, minus that whole shaking the bottle like there's no tomorrow part. But it's worth it. I really can't sing the praises of Diamond Cosmetics enough. The brand is just terrific and the price is absolutely right. And hey, look at me joining in on Pink Wednesday! :) Even if it is late.
