It used to be that diamonds were forever. Young up-and-coming designer Azature has challenged this concept by designing a bottle of nail polish that comes complete with 267 carats of black diamonds, designed for one-time use.
Now even if you are an exceptionally graceful person, nail polish tends to chip and start to look shabby after a few days. For the lady who can afford to fork out $250,000 for a bottle of nail polish, shabby is probably not an option, so each coat of this polish probably has a life of just a day or two. To make matters worse, there will be a very limited edition of just one bottle. A luxury this is, that's for sure – mere mortals will never be able to paint their nails perfectly without the inevitable minor correction with a piece of tissue, and what's to be done with all those diamonds that go out with the trash? But perhaps that's part of the fun...
The peasant version
Such a luxury is necessarily aimed at an understandably small part of the population who is affluent enough to afford such trifles as diamond-enhanced nail varnish. For those who love the look but simply don’t have the necessary pocket change, Azature will shortly be bringing out a bargain version, Black Diamond Babes, with just one carat of diamond in each bottle that will retail for $25. The real question at this point is – who will be able to tell the difference?
No Diamond in the Rough
Azature, better known as the Black Diamond King, has been making a name for himself in Hollywood with his black diamond jewelry Collections. His designs have graced the fingers and necks of celebrities such as Miley Cyrus, Megan Fox, Emma Stone, Scarlett Johansson, Beyonce and Rihanna, all of who are big fans of his creations. Recent expansions now mean that there are boutiques in London, New York, Los Angeles, and Riyadh. With his growing popularity and the press surrounding his latest invention we can only guess at what he will put black diamonds into next!
