Pink Diamond is a frosty baby pink. I really love this color, it's a nice shade for toes when you want something that won't clash with a lot of outfits but will be noticeable, and it's great for manicures also. Pink Diamond is from Essie's spring 2004 Madison Avenue collection.
Baby Girl pearly pale pink frost. "Pink Pearl" would be a far more fitting name. This is not, as one reviewer noted, like "Aphrodite's Pink Nighty"; "Pink Diamond" is about a zillion shades paler. If you want an exact color match-up, try Orly's "Seashell." Not only is the Orly bottle better, but it costs about half as much.
I like it but I don't love it. Pink Diamond is a very smooth, very shimmery, very pale pink polish. It is slightly sheer, and very reflective, it almost seems like a frost. Based on pics I have seen I was expecting a pinker polish, but it is extremely light pink. It is also almost identical to ORLY Pink Brilliance, except that Pink Brilliance is maybe a half shade warmer.
Pink Diamond is a sheer, highly pearlized pale girly pink. This color was a first for me...it was the first time I've ever applied a color and immediately changed it. It's so beautiful and I know that many love it, but it is not for me at all. I have vertical ridges on my nails. Even with OPI ridge filler, this polish highlighted every flaw on my not-so-perfect nails. After putting on 2 coats of Pink Diamond, I reached for Imported Champagne and covered it with 2 more coats and felt much better. I need the smoother, less reflective coverage that Imported Champagne provides. If you want something pearly and ultra feminine, try Pink Diamond. If not, try Imported Champagne. For reference, I am a cool-toned PPP with natural nails. EDIT TO ADD: I'm bumping this a lippie because I used Essie's 3 Way Glaze under Pink Diamond instead of OPI Ridge Filler. This worked to help mask the imperfections in my nails and makes Pink Diamond much more tolerable for me. I still think it's a bit reflective, but it looks nice and will also make a good layering color. I recently used it on toes and LOVED it. I may bump another lippie because it's such a fabulous toe color on me. Dainty, girly, shiny, and wonderful.
What a beautiful pearly pink! I got this in a swap and would have purchased it if I didn't! Looks so feminine on nails. I can see this working on all skintones as well. As always, Essie has great application! Definate repurchase if I ever finish the bottle
This is not exactly what I was expecting. I was hoping for a more medium rosy pink polish with lots of shimmer. This is a cool-toned, very pearly, pale baby pink. The sparkles can be seen in the bottle, but don't really show up on nails. Looks okay now that I have a tan but would probably look odd when I revert to my normal PPP/GGG complexion.
Prety, pretty, shimmering, pearlized pink - great on summer toes or spring-y fingertips.
If you like a pearly pink - try this.
This color is so pretty! Goes very well w/my skin (very fair, cool toned) It look much paler on nails then it appears in the bottle, though.
I love this color, a pearly pink, kinda bright, kinda light. It's lovely. I put two coats of pink diamond on, then topped with a coat of Mademoiselle. I liked this effect a lot. I like how smooth Essie polishes feel on. Glad I tried this one. Sophistocated, pretty, frosty but not in a cheap flashy way, more of a French classy way.
I LOVE this color. This is the perfect, shimmery pink that is light enough for spring/summer and sophisticated enough for a job interview. It doesn't look like a blatant 80's pink, and it's definitely very natural. Would definitely repurchase - I hope they don't discontinue this color EVER!
