Darling Diva Polish: Dangerous Driver

Hey everyone!  I hope you've all been enjoying the (unofficial) first week of summer!  I ended my week by attending a sheep festival :-)

Awwwww!

For some reason, I felt I should dress up for the sheep, so I wore a cute jersey dress, bow flats, makeup, and the gorgeous polish I'm about to review!

Darling Diva Polish's Dangerous Driver is a beautiful and complex shimmer topper.  The faintly purple base is filled with a mix of red/green color-shifting shimmer and two sizes of linear holographic powder (think holographic Clarins 230).  It's not the strongest holographic effect, but it's definitely visible.  The slightly toned-town nature of the holographic effect makes it easier to see the color-shifting pigment, so it all works out quite well!  Darling Diva recommends layering it over purple or blue, so I did one coat of Dangerous Driver over two coats of the fabulous Illamasqua Jo'Mina.  The end result is a stunning, lit-from-within glow accented by holographic sparkle.  You also get a green color shift in the shimmer at some angles, but I was unable to catch this on camera.  The formula was absolutely perfect and dry time was average.




So glowy!

I really loved this combination!  I wear glitter polish constantly and often can't bring myself to wear plain cremes.  Shimmer toppers like this are my happy medium between "boring" cremes and over-the-top glitter.

Darling Diva Polish Dangerous Driver costs $12 for 15mL.  You can purchase Darling Diva products from their Etsy shopLlarowe, Norway Nails, and MeiMei's Signatures.    To stay up-to-date on the latest Darling Diva Polish news, Like their Facebook page

    1. I know, I loved those sheep! Their names were Gracie and Carmen, and they would run and hide behind their owner every time the little herding dog would tease them.

      Thanks!
