Kicks Black Diamond - swatches and review

I have a plan. A textured plan ;) Today Swedish Kicks' Black Diamond, tomorrow a textured comparison and the day after that a textured skittle. How does that sound?

This is the Swedish perfumery shop Kicks' own textured polish. They have released a range of their own textured polishes. This is the first one I have tried and I am impressed!

Excellent formula and touch dry in 15 minutes.


Type of polish: Textured glitter.

Number of coats: One!

Formula: Excellent! It's so easy to apply!

Brush: Very good perhaps a bit thin for my likening but I like my brushes wiiiiiiide ;)

Top Coat: No. 

Color accuracy in pictures: Accurate. More glittering live though.

Grade: 4/5

This is a fantastic polish formula wise and color wise! However, it brought out the red in my skin and that is the only reason I gave it a lower grade.

It can also be good to know that there is a smaller round cap underneath the big square one, just like on the Illamasqua bottles. As I said it's touch in 15 minutes but to get it complete dry takes about 30 minutes.

How do you like Black Diamond?


  1. Just beautiful!!! And I love to see small local brands picking up on the trend of textures - I am over the moon about those Barry M's by the way ;-)!! How about the color range of Kiks? Viele Küsschen xxx

  2. Jättefina bilder och jag blir definitivt sugen på att köpa detta. Tycker också din "textur-plan" låter lysande! ;)

  3. Ser fram emot din texturplan:)

  4. Härliga bilder! Det ser verkligen snyggt ut och det ska bli roligt att se lite textur här hos dig.

  5. Superfint! Jag tycker också att Kicks har lyckats bra med sina strukturlack, har testat två och har en lila stående bland de otestade...

  6. Well, I would surely like to add this one to my collection of textured polishes! :-)
