My First ASOS Purchase: Religion Magnitude Purse & Rimmel Diamond Dust Nail Polish

I placed my (first ever) order in Asos online store on Monday and the package came to my address on Thursday. Three days later from UK to Slovenia. Not bad. I'm only sorry I didn't order a can of the Batiste dry shampoo while shopping... But no worries, shipping is free no matter how much you spend, I'll just place another order. 

I got this gorgeous (in my opinion, of course) Religion Magnitude Purse. I was fed up with my old purse and I really needed a new one. This one is close to perfect, but I'm still getting used to it. It's not the most practical thing, but I love it nonetheless. It was on sale for 18,38 € (retail price is 39,39 €).

Another little thing that found it's way in my shopping cart while shopping at Asos: Rimmel Precious Stones nail polish in Diamond Dust has been on my wishlist for a very long time. Well, it was either this one or China Glaze in Some Like it Haute. They're both unavailable here in Slovenia and since Asos has Rimmel on sale at the moment (3,94 € instead of 5,24 €) I knew it was the right time to get it.

Diamond Dust in one of the shades from the Precious Stones collection which consists of two glittery nail polish colors (red and grey). Yeah, it's a rather small collection. The bottle says this is a 'high coverage glitter nail polish' which is not really the case. The polish is packed with small gunmetal glitter and bigger hexagonal holographic glitter, but it still looks better when applied over a base color. At least in my experience.

I tried Diamond Dust by itself on one of my nails and I wasn't too impressed. So I removed it, painted my nails with a shimmery grey base (Essence Multi Dimension in Must Have) and applied two coats of Diamond Dust over it. Much better! I like the flat brush in this Rimmel's gem which made the application easy. The polish dried into a gritty finish. A layer of top coat makes it better, but not even close to smooth. It's not too bad though - it didn't bother me at all and I'm not a big fan of gritty nails. Well, I like the look, but not the feeling of it on my nails. To be completely honest, this polish didn't live up to my expectations. I don't know what I wanted it to be... it's probably the lack of opacity that bothers me. Diamond Dust is a decent glitter polish, just not something I couldn't be without.

I pulled out the big guns (aka my Nikon camera) for these two photos. =) Yeah, I don't know why I'm complaining. The polish looks nice, right?

  1. Oh man, ASOS is so addicting, especially with free shipping and simple returns (only expensive to send back heavy coats and shoes..). I hate it when I get emails like: 70% off sale items, 25% off everything for 48 hours! xD

  2. it's quite nice, even if not 'high coverage' ;) In the last photo it looks a bit matte, that's strange : o
