Darling Diva ~ Little Red Corvette



Darling Diva ~ Little Red Corvette
Cherry red jelly packed with red holo glitters

In case you haven’t figured it out: I’m a fan of Darling Diva’s polishes. I love pretty much everything about them, and Little Red Corvette is right up my street. I love red polishes if they’re spectacular enough, and Little Red Corvette is definitely spectacular – just wait and see!

The formula is on the thick side, but since I like thick polishes it wasn’t a problem. The polish covers really well for a jelly; it took two coats to reach full opacity. Drying time is good too, no worries in that department. The glitter dries up pretty gritty, but a layer of topcoat brings the glitter to life anyway, so I definitely recommend doing that.

Take a look at this; Two coats, one layer of Poshé topcoat:


You need more than one layer of topcoat if you want total smoothness. I don’t mind a bit of grittiness myself – I’m that kind of girl ;) - so I kept it at one coat:

  
I love the holo effect in the glitter, it looks amazing! I didn’t have sun available, so these pics are all taken indoors with flash.

  
Mmm, this is so me!

  
You can see the grittiness on this pic. I actually quite like that!

  
I like this so much so I kept it as it was. No nail art. No dots or lines. No stamping. Just a good firm handful of sexy polish! ;)

Do you own any Darling Diva polishes? Or don’t you care for indies?

  3. I'm a big fan of DD polishes in fact that was the first Indie brand I bought any from. Little Red Corvette is an amazing polish and I think that is one of those polishes that I might wear on Christmas.

  6. Way too glitter happy for me. I wore a glitter the other day, liked it enough until it was time to come off! Then I remember why I hate glitter. Well that plus the fact that I just don't like the way it looks, feels etc. There is that! HAHAH! I do love reds though!

    1. I love the way glitter looks the most, and I don't mind the hazzle when it comes to taking it off. To me it's totally worth the effort :D
