Petites Color Fever Black Diamond
Hello everyone! I'm excited to finally be writing my first official blog post. Unfortunately the weather somewhat ruined my plan. I just got back from Yorktown, Virginia a few days ago and while I was there I got Petites Color Fever Black Diamond at Rite Aid. It is my first holographic nail polish. I painted my nails with it 2 nights ago and then the heavy rain started. I thought I wasn't going to get a good sunlight picture of it so I tried my best to get good indoor shots. As I started writing this post the sun came out for a few minutes so I took that opportunity to take some pictures. The pictures I got outside still aren't amazing though..the sun wasn't shining too brightly. Anyway, on to the pictures!! The first one is indoors, the second one is outdoors and the bottle pictures are outdoors. Click the pictures to make them bigger...the holo is easier to see. (It is pretty faint though.)
The formula on this one was slightly thick and seemed to get thicker the longer I worked with it. Despite its thickness it still required 3 coats to completely even out. This polish is obviously not a bright, in your face holo. I haven't got to see it in really good sunlight except in the bottle as I was leaving the store with it. Indoors the holo is barely noticeable unless you are in a brightly lit room or you look up close. For the most part indoors it is a charcoal colour with fine silver particles. Outdoors in 'partly cloudy' weather it had a slight holo shine and the silver particles turned rainbow. I'm a little disappointed at how subdued this is..but at the same time I haven't really seen it in the bright sunlight on my nails so I can't be sure yet. If the rain stops and I still have my nails painted with this colour I will update this post with more pictures. You can find this one and other Petites Color Fever polishes at Rite Aid for $2. I don't have a Rite Aid anywhere close to me and I haven't seen these Petites Color Fever polishes anywhere else. If you know of any other place to buy these please let me know in the comments.
Peace and Love,
