Darling Diva ~ Electric Barbie-rella



Darling Diva ~ Electric Barbie-rella
Pink holo with gold shimmer and holo microglitter

Yesterday I showed you It’s Diva Red, Darling!, and Electric Barbie-rella is her sister. They are both HHC Facebook group customs from January 2017.

The formula is good and the polish covers perfectly in two coats. The drying time is good.

This is two coats and no topcoat taken with flash. I love the blue flame!


Here’s how pretty the colour is in low lights.


I stamped on it. The motif is from Moyou London’s stamping plate Princess Collection-14 and I stamped with Shimmer Blue from Born Pretty Store. This is my final mani including a layer of Moyra’s stamping topcoat:


And it’s lovely outside the flashlight too!


It’s Diva Red, Darling! was limited edition and is no longer available.


Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Good
Finish: Holo with shimmer and microglitter
Overall impression: I like this a lot. Colour and rainbows are both pretty.

I really like the effect in this.


This picture is taken in my lightbox so you can see the glitter too.


No nail art for this beauty. I just wasn’t in the mood.

Pahlish ~ Test batch: Calm & Bright



Pahlish ~ Test batch: Calm & Bright
Dark blue holo with strong purple shimmer

This polish was bought as a mystery polish and I was thrilled when I opened the package and saw it. The purple shimmer makes this polish quite extraordinary. Unfortunately you won’t get to actually see much of it, since it was totally camera shy. Dang! Typical, isn’t it!

The formula was really good and the polish glided on effortlessly in two coats. The drying time was super good.

Here’s two coats and no topcoat taken with flash. You can see a little bit of the purple shimmer if you look at my pinkie. 


The shimmer is super visible in real life but it wasn’t eager to be caught on cam. This is taken in ordinary daylight.


So I stamped on it. The stamp is from the stamping plate UR Beautiful-03 and I stamped with Fuchsia from El Corazón’s stamping collection. I topped it all with a layer of Out the Door’s holo topper Northern Lights and this is the end result taken with flash:


Daylight picture:


The polishes I used. Look at how much I’ve used of that topper. It’s my favourite holo glitter topper.


Calm & Bright is a gem, no less.

Number of coats: 2
Drying time: Really fast
Finish: Holo with strong shimmer
Overall impression: Great polish with an extraordinary shimmer. I love it.
