A few months ago, I was asked to be a be a featured Diosa. What’s a Diosa? She’s a woman in her 20′s or 30′s who inspires her peers and the girls in their lives who are in need of positive role models. The vision comes from Diana, a New York City native who wanted to create a brand of nail polishes that could also tell a story. You can learn more about Diana here. She’s pretty awesome. I wanted to show off some of the pretty Diosa polishes. If you love supporting indie nail polish brands, I think you’ll love this one.
See what I mean?
Puff Pastry is a super sheer jelly that would probably work best on an American manicure. I like it by itself though. Because it’s so sheer, it’ll take a good 3 coats to achieve some kind of opaque finish.
Dawn Over Provence is a pale lavender. It’s got a dusty finish and while it looks great on solo, it’ll really shine with some kind of sparkle or glitter on top.
Dime Piece is a grey. Can’t go wrong with grey nail polishes!
Bali Blaze is a super bright red that leans more on the orange side. It’s goooorgeous.
Somethin’ Extra is a holographic glitter. It’s a stunner!
Fuchsia Plans photographs funky but this is a gorgeous fuchsia. It dries down to a semi-matte finish. Of course a top coat will make it glossy but I actually really like the semi-matte finish.
I Sea You is a bright blue that reminds me a lot of Nubar’s Blueberry nail polish. Which happens to be my favorite blue nail polish evahhhh! I Sea You is a close second. And as beautiful as it is, I love that it doesn’t stain the nails. Woot!
Purple Reign is a dark purple polish that actually LOOKS purple on the nails instead of black. I love when this happens!
Diosa nail polishes apply beautifully. Some of the shades were a bit on the watery side (namely Puff Pastry and Dime Piece) so thin and even coats are the best way to apply these polishes. I’m lovin’ these inaugural shades. Diosa nails officially launched in July 2012 and I think this is a great intro to the nail polish world. You can buy these babies for $8 online.
