Wham! Pow! Black Diamond Mani

by 10:41 AM 14 comments

Just a quick post today.

This was my mani a couple of days ago.
I used China Glaze Black Diamond, a gunmetal grey with strong shimmer, totally not black. I don't think this polish gets enough love, I quite like it and would wear it more except that for some reason it is always really messy to apply. You have to layer this one over another black polish otherwise it seems to get a faded look. I do love the blue/ green/ purple shimmer. It's very subtle, and I have never managed to photograph it well until now.


I used Color Club Wham! Pow! as an accent nail on each hand because I thought the colour might be too much on its own, although I think that since I stamped over the top it became more wearable and not too in your face.
What are your thoughts? A whole mani using Wham! Pow! Or is the colour just too bright on it's own?

  8. Hi Frankie,

    When I normally do feature nails, its just a decal or a design (possibly because I am too lazy to do the same to all my fingers lol). I like how it turned out haveing one nail such a contrasting colour.
