I'm back!! I've done a 360 with Diddy Mow in the know!!


First of all I would like to thank all of you who sent me well wishes e-mails and PM's to me on makeupalley.  That meant so much to me.

I am not back to 100% yet, but I was able to get a swatch done today.
For today's viewing pleasure - I bring to you an RBL that was re-released from the summer collection!!
For swatchin purposes I used a base coat, np and top coat only.
Don't know why this was called 360 - but that's exactly how I feel right now -
as if my body is doing a 360 trying to feel better!!
Application on this baby was a dream!!  I am so glad i was able to get her before Ji sold out on her again.

I am usually a proverbial 3 coater - but this beauty only required 2!  She was opaque and perfect with just 2 coats.

Then I took her outside for some sun - and she was just as gorgeous outside as she was inside. 
I had the smallest and faintest notion that she could be a distant cousing of MAC Blue India.
But she is dustier and more pale and a little greyer than Blue India, so I guess I'll have to do a comparison to show the difference.  They are not dupes - I promise you.

Now I present to you:
Diddy Mow really made me happy!!  She is the prettiest grey I have ever seen.
I do have other grey's, unfortunaly they are untrieds at the moment - but I think I'll have to a comparison of grey's as well. 
She was just so smooth to apply and virtually no streaking.  I did apply 3 coats for this one - because she a little sheer - not much, but 3 coats really brought forth her true beauty.

Then i took her outside!!
See my baby in the background?  He always thinks I'm trying to take his picture when I go outside with the camera - then he gets distracted by whatever he sees in the yard that's a little more interesting than my nails!!

Don't really know why this one was called Diddy Mow-but I tell you what - Ji does know Diddy when it comes to her nail polishes!!  I really loved this color.
There is no shimmer to this baby - but she dried with an almost satin finish - but did not have a satin shimmer to it - she was just dreamy!!

I did not get the red one - Banging - because I don't do well with Orangey Reds.  I have heard that if you have the Red my fortune Cookie from the OPI Hong Kong Collection - it is a very close dupe.  Does someone know who did the comp for those?  I'll do a search and get back to you all on that one.

Well, that's it for me today!!  Thank you for looking and being patient with me.  I do so appreciate all of the support i received during my absence.

So, what do you think?  Do you have any of these and what do you think of them - I'd love to hear from you and know.

Til next time - Happy Polishing!!
