Dear Friends,

 

It is my pleasure and honour to share the latest Shimmer Inks from Diamine due to be released this month. There are 12 colours and I have been able to review them all thanks to Diamine. I welcome your thoughts and feedback, as always.

 

Apologies for the camera issues, haven't been able to correct this!

EDITED TO ADD SCANS

Thanks for the review.  I think I can pass on this one, which is good for my wallet.

It is unique for sure and the shading is lovely.

Thanks for the review!

I don't mind the actual colour but the thing I like best about it is that I don't see any shimmer at all!

That is fabulous. This one actually had a huge amount of gold laid down, but it played well and produced a great effect in good lighting and in sun.

I wish Diamine would release a non-glitter option of this ink. The shading is gorgeous!!
