Marijuana Manicures is apparently a new trend. 

Yes, you are not reading or seeing things.  The latest trend in nails is to physically embed crushed up marijuana into powder acrylic or gel, and incorporate it into a new trendy way to don nails.

I first came across this trend when I read an article on Forbes website  http://www.forbes.com/sites/susannahbreslin/2013/11/27/weed-nails/

HighTimes Magazine, the ultimate purveyor of all things cannabis related, also wrote an article on the trend. http://www.hightimes.com/read/high-fashion-pot-weedicures#?1#?1#WebrootPlugIn#?1#?1#PhreshPhish#?1#?1#agtpwd

This eyebrow raising trend also posts serious questions regarding the legality of the novel trend.  To stay completely safe, this is probably a manicure you might want to leave for the "high"ly adventurous, risque, or entertainer crowd.

How much will a "Weedicure" set you back?  Apparently only a mere $45.

Check out some of the latest shades of Azature Black Diamond Nail Polish I got to review.  Like all Azature polishes, each bottle of polish is infused with a black diamond! The colors are beautiful, and I always love the little individual stories printed on the back of the bottles.

The colors swatched here include:

White: standard bright French tip white. The story on the back reads: "This shade is inspired by the faint white diamond. White captures the energy of light, and it brightness and clarity is associated with purity and fresh starts." 

Gold Diamond: a shimmering metallic yellow gold.  I find most metallic polishes to be quite streaky in application, but this shade was a dream to work with.  Absolutely streak free and paints on very smoothly. The story on the back reads: "This shade is inspired by the gold diamond.  Gold represents achievement and glamour with its eye catching shimmer -- and its the color of first place the world over."

Wine Diamond: a glittery glistening deep magenta wine color. The story on the back reads: "This shade is inspired by the wine diamond.  The versatile color plays well with a range of tones, calling to mind balance & harmony."

Charcoal Diamond: a shimmering multi- faceted dark coco color. The story on the back reads, "This shade is inspired by the charcoal diamond, the confluence of blues, black, and grey give this color a depth and strength."

Plum Diamond: a shimmery blurple, depending on the shifting of the light, the shade can appear anywhere from a deep metallic purple to a dark sultry blue. The story on the back reads, "This shade is inspired by the plum diamond. Plum is a deep, feminine color that reflects spirituality and mystery." 

Blush Diamond: a ballet pink slipper.  The story on the back reads, "This shade is inspired by the blush diamond. The playful, young shade is a modest-yet-girly play on pink."

(each swatch shown here was 2 coats for full opacity, and a top coat.)
