Diamond Cosmetics–Don’t Teal My Heart Away

Oh my, this is an old photo. I am so, so, SO far behind on blogging it’s not even funny. I couldn’t tell you when I took this photo. Maybe three or four months ago? I can’t seem to get on top of blogging. It’s the editing photos process which puts me off. My desktop computer is being a bit of a dinosaur at the moment so using Photoshop means it runs like a pig. Ah well, I’ll just keep plodding along and maybe one day you’ll get a mani photo which is less than a couple of weeks old Smile with tongue out


You all know I looooove teals. This teal creme is somewhat of an exception.


Don’t Teal My Heart Away by Diamond Cosmetics, two coats.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s a nice colour, but it just seemed to lack depth and whatever it is that draws me to teals. Eh, you have to try these things!


What’s your favourite teal?

essence-Where is the Party?

Essence is the bomb, we all know that. Affordable polishes with an awesome range. How can you go wrong?

I picked up this beauty the last time I was in Adelaide (about three months ago now!!) and have only just gotten around to wearing it.

This is Where is the Party?:


Pretty purple!

But wait… what’s that!?



Here’s some green!



Yup! This duochrome shifts from purple to green quite obviously. It’s hard to capture it but it’s there. This was two easy coats. No issues with the formula and it wore quite well.


I’m not sure if this colour is available anymore since Essence switched to their new shaped bottles, so if you can snap it up I’d highly recommend it!
