Darling Diva Polish Diamond Collection

Good morning!  I have an amazing post to share today...it's full of holos!  But these are really cool - more like metallic-matte holos.  So they are very unique and different.  I am pretty smitten with them.  This is the Darling Diva Polish Diamond Collection.  Yesterday I showed you the Opal Collection and you can see it HERE.  I love the inspiration for this set, I mean really, what girl doesn't love diamonds and a little bling in their life.  Well now you can have bling on your nails too!  All of these holos can be a 1 coater, but for each one I used 2 thin coats.  I didn't use topcoat because I liked that they had a matte like finish.  I also included a shade picture for each color because you can really see how they look like metal in that lighting.  You can purchase DDP from Big Cartel or Etsy as well as Llarowe and Mei Mei's Signatures.  You can follow DDP on Facebook and Instagram (darlingdivapolish).

*PRESS SAMPLE*  

I started with Diamond.  This is a silver linear holo.  If you don't have a silver holo in your collection this is definitely a good one to start with!  It applied easily and the formula flowed nicely.

Chocolate Diamond might be my favorite.  I love the soft brown color and the linear holo effect.  The formula on this one was really lovely, nice and buttery.  It applied perfectly.

This is Black Diamond.  It's more of a soft black compared to some other black holos, but I think that's what makes it great!  The linear holo effect on Black Diamond seems to be the strongest out of the collection.  Formula and application were both great.

Green Diamond is a lime green based polish with holo effect.  This will be perfect for a lighter green take on a Christmas mani or for a pretty Spring mani!  Again, the formula was nice and buttery.  Easy to apply with no issues to report.

Blue Diamond is a bright blue, borderline neon blue linear holo.  I adore this color.  The brightness is refreshing but it still works for a wintry mani.  Can't you just pictures little snowflakes dancing on this background?  Just like the others, amazing formula and application.

Here we have Rose Diamond.  This is a stunning bright rose pink linear holo.  It has a gorgeous holo in the sun and is equally pretty in the shade.  Rose Diamond is a very feminine shade that will be perfect for any occasion!  The formula and application were both great.

Last but not least, Pink Diamond.  This dusty pink-mauve polish is another feminine shade that would work for many "party" and other scenarios.  It's classy but fun.  The application on this one was good.  I did notice it shows a couple ridges so you might want to buff your nails smooth prior to applying.  There is also a disclaimer for the formula on Pink Diamond and I found it to be true.  This one is a little stainey.  Please use a good base coat, a couple layers of base coat or a thin layer of a base color to protect your nails less you want them to turn hot pink.
