Darling Diva A Christmas story is a ton of red and green micro glitters and some holographic glitters thrown in too. I used 3 coats on it's own for these swatches and I'd say it was quite topcoat hungry. I think I used 2 coats of topcoat and maybe even a third a day later.
Overall I do like this polish enough to keep it but as I live in the UK and we basically never see the sun I'm not sure it was the best choice. It looked very dull and overall a brown colour when I was out and about in the day but under halogen lights it came to life and was very sparkly. Maybe I needed the sun??
I think when I wear it next I will layer it over another colour, probably a red or green.
These pictures were taken in my new light box and this is more accurate of how the polish looked most of the time:
Now you can see the sparkles, they make this polish come alive
This was taken outside of the lightbox - again, quite representative of how it looked in the daytime, I think the overall effect is quite brown, pretty when you actually look at it but the overall effect is not very noticable, I only got a compliment from my husband on this one.
Again, you can see the sparkles, I wish I could have seen them all the time! Why do they show better in blury photo's?
