China Glaze Nail Lacquer Black Diamond

Today, I am sharing a pretty shade from China Glaze.
Black Diamond was released with the winter ski collection a few years ago.The name is a bit misleading coz its grey not black. 

It is smoky gunmetal grey with green and silver shimmer.

      (Artificial Light)

The shimmer is only visible in sunlight or artificial light; otherwise it’s just a grey nail polish. It is a good polish for layering.

I love how it looks good when it is layered over black crème polish.

        (Natural Light)

This has a shimmery formula which gives opacity in three coats. It is streaky in the first two coats. The second coat dragged the polish which I applied in the first coat. It dries quickly.

Apply thick coats while using it individually and apply a good top coat (this will hide the streaks, if any).

Wear Time
There was a little tip wear after 2 days. It stayed for 3 days on my nails without chipping.

- Pretty shade.

- The applicator brush is easy to use.
- A good polish for layering.
- Dries quickly
-Big 3 Free.

- Tricky Formula

Retail Price: $4.5 (for 13ml)

I used this polish for my New Year Manicure.

Do you have any favourite Grey Polishes?


  1. This is a beautiful colour :)

  2. I love this color. I've never been a fan of black, but I feel like dark greys give the same drama and look so sophisticated

    1. @Catherine you are right. Dark greys are so different, they look more elegant when compared to black.
