Darling Diva ~ Tis the Season



Darling Diva ~ Tis the Season
Grass green packed with green microglitter, added iridescent glitter

Here’s another special polish for you. It’s special because it hasn’t actually been up for sale in Darling Diva’s shop. Tis the Season was added to the orders that were shipped out just before Christmas. Score!! I didn’t do any shopping around that time, so I got my bottle from a dear friend who did shop for Darling Divas around Christmas. Fortunately for me she doesn’t really wear green polish, so she let me buy it. Double score! Thank you so much

The formula is great and covers easily in two coats. Drying time is good. There aren’t many glitters in the bottle so I didn’t bother fishing for them. I did get some glitter up anyway.

Here’s what two coats and a layer of topcoat looks like in low lights:


Here’s a flash picture to show off the pretty shimmer.


Yet another flash picture. Isn’t this just gorgeous?


I stamped on it (no surprise there, then). Even though this is a Christmas polish it made me long for spring. Grass green and flowers and sunshine! I found my flowery motif on Moyou London’s Pro Collection-14 and I stamped with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Whirlwind White. I dotted orange in the middle of the flowers, and I used Julie G’s Tangerine Dream mixed with a white crème for better opacity for that purpose. Another layer of topcoat completed my mani:


I love this! It makes me long even more for spring!



Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Shimmer with iridescent glitter
Overall impression: Awesome green
Buy again: Yes
