A quick manicure today as I didn't plan to repaint my nails but I had to. Unfortunately someone was "kind" enough to bang a laptop case against my hand breaking the nail on my right index, so after filing it down to way-too-short it definitely needed a coat of gorgeousness. Of course I wouldn't want to sell my other nails short so I sat down for a new manicure with a brand new polish that was bought just for the name: Diablo!

Diablo isn't just a gorgeous dark red holo by ILNP, it is also a computer game that I play quite often. I'm not really an avid gamer (unlike a certain male person in this household that wears the male version of my wedding band ;) but playing Diablo (III with the Reaper of Souls expansion, for you connoisseurs out there) with my husband and some friends is just a lot of fun. Anyway, when I saw one of the new fall polishes by ILNP was called Diablo I mentioned it during one of our games and lo and behold, it found it's way to my stash :)
Diablo is absolutely stunning. When hit by just a little light it is filled with bright red and blue specks that twinkle when you wiggle your fingers. It just seems to glow from within! Apart from the beautiful color it has a great formula that goes where you want it to go and stays where you put it. I used two thin layers for complete opacity and finished with a layer of Seche Vite to help it dry and give it a super glossy finish.

I'm still a bit miffed about my broken nail but who could stay sad when she has something as beautiful as Diablo to look at? I for one simply can't so I'll be smiling when I see that occasional flash of red or blue :) Hope you'll have a great week and remember: just three more days until it's weekend!
ILNP Diablo was bought from Hypnotic Polish.
Cirque Colors Au was bought from Pretty Polish.
