Darling Diva ~ Red Friday

Darling Diva ~ Red Friday
Cherry red linear holo

Red Friday is a special polish. It’s slightly more expensive than Darling Divas usually are, but it’s a charity polish: Every cent goes to the DAV (Disabled American Vets).

The formula is good. It feels like a jelly but it builds up perfectly in two easy and fast drying coats.

Here’s two coats, no topcoat:

I love the look of this! 

Don’t let the redness of my flash pictures fool you though; Red Friday isn’t a true red. Take a look at it in lower lights:

I stamped flowers on it because I was in that kind of mood. I found my motif on BP-42 and I stamped with Sally Hansen Insta-Dri “Whirlwind White”. I didn’t topcoat it before I took my pictures, because I didn’t want to risk that Red Friday is a little bleeder. Note: She isn’t. I topcoated it afterwards without any problems occurring.

Final mani with flash:

I love this.It chipped after less than 24 hours though, that's really unusual for a Darling Diva polish.

Overall impression: This looks awesome, especially in the sun/flash
