Darling Diva ~ The Grand Rite



Darling Diva ~ The Grand Rite
Deep red linear holo

The Grand Rite is from the Salem collection. It’s described as deep red, but my bottle is more burgundy than deep red to be honest. Fortunately I don’t mind burgundy as long as it’s not gravy brown, and this one isn’t.

I paired it with a texture silver/holo glitter from Sephora’s Formula X collection called Freaky Like Freud – and let me show you the final mani first:

  
It’s two coats of both The Grand Rite and Freaky Like Freud. They are both great polishes that covers really well. The drying time is good too.



I dotted the silver glitter onto the burgundy and then, made stripes over the glitter with the burgundy. Freaky Like Freud is really topcoat hungry, so I applied a layer of topcoat and shortly after it was textured again. I like that!
This picture is taken in low lights. The Grand Rite still likes to flash some rainbows but the Freaky Like Freud gets a little bit muted.


Here’s what the look like without dots and stripes:


I love these two together. Freaky Like Freud is so cool, I love it to bits!


Here are the mandatory bottle shot:


I like this. How about you?


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Linear holo/glitter texture
Overall impression: I love both these polishes
Buy again: Yes to both
