Darling Diva ~ Violets are Blue

Darling Diva ~ Violets are Blue
Magenta linear holo with blue to pink shimmer

Violets are Blue is not part of Darling Diva’s regular polish line. It’s a polish that was available for the members of a Darling Diva fangroup on Facebook. I am so lucky to be a member of that group, yay!

The formula is okay but the polish is a bit on the sheer side. You may be able to get away with two coats, but I wasn’t satisfied until a third coat was on. Drying time is really good though, so I didn’t mind the three coats so much.

And girl! This baby really shines! Take a look at three coats and no topcoat – pic is taken in the sunshine:

Can you see that colour shifting pigment too? I think that is what makes this polish really unique!

Still sunshine, but in different environment. This is where the blue really shines.

I stamped a bit on it just because I can. I used the XL stamping plate K and I stamped with Ellagee’s “Rainbows all over your blues”. I applied a layer of Ellagee’s topcoat “Glass” and then my mani was ready to rock:

Here’s a low light picture so you can see what Violets are Blue looks like out of the sun:

I am glad that I snatched this while I had the chance! It has actually also got a purple sister: “Cotton Candy Hangover”, which I’ll probably show you later today, if the sun in still shining. There are never guarantees for sunshine in my hemisphere, so we’ll just have to wait and see.

Number of coats: 3
Drying time: Fast
Finish: Linear holo with colour shifting pigment. A great mix of finishes!
Overall impression: Nice, non offensive colour. What does it for me is the mix of holo and colourshift!
Buy again: Yes


  1. It looks really god on you - holo and shiny - even if you don't like that *cough* *giggle* *cough*

    1. I know, it's a challenge to wear all those shiny holos! :D
