Color Club 'Covered in Diamonds'

I'd like to introduce you to a new love of mine:

Color Club 'Covered in Diamonds' is a beautiful 'flakie' style polish that reflects iridescent blue, green, amber, and purple. The reflect almost looks like mica. I purchased my bottle from for $3! What a steal (It was originally released with the Untamed Luxury collection)!

Here is a close-up of the bottle:

 And here is what it looks like over China Glaze 'Near Dark':

I love the shine and character this can give to any polish although there are a few difficulties in application:

  1. Similarly to hex glitter, this can have some placement issues causing parts of the nail to look sparse and parts to look clumpy. QUICK FIX: Apply in thin layers being sure to allow drying time between application.
  2. Little corners of the flakes can stick straight up which makes applying a topcoat difficult. QUICK FIX: same as 1 except check as you apply the thin layers to be sure your not building on  a stray piece.
