Darling Diva Polish Opal Collection

Press Sample

Here's an awesome new collection from Darling Diva Polish. The Opal Collection consists of 7 polishes with flakies, iridescent glitters, and small holo particles that were impossible to photograph but are present and gorgeous. We've been having some fierce weather in the Northeast--lots of clouds and changing temperatures (60 degrees one day, 30 next), so I've been super sick while trying to show you guys this awesome collection. Let's get started.

For each polish, I showed it alone on the nail then layered. For all these polishes, the formula is a bit thicker because of the density of the flakies, so for some with lighter bases, you may want to layer. All appear sheer at the first coat, but most become opaque after two coats. Like I said above, each have this holo dusting which gives it a gorgeous shine and the iridescent flakies just make the polishes glow.

Opal: This is obviously meant to be a top coat but I've showed you what it looks like at four coats. This is a gorgeous wintry polish. I've layered it over Wet N Wild Black Creme, OPI Royal Rajah Ruby, Zoya Neely,  and OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. I particularly love this over white and the deep red. It's like snow over the white.

Blue Opal: this one is the sheerest of the colored bases, and I much prefer it layered. You want to wait until each coat dries before doing another. I've used three careful coats on my index and ring. On my middle and pinky, I used one coat over Sinful Colors Sugar Rush.

Moss Opal: I love this one! This one is fantastic with two coats alone. I've shown it layered with one coat on my middle and pink over China Glaze Running in Circles.

Teal Opal: Another two coater. I've shown it alone and one coat over Illamasqua Muse. This one is great alone.

Rose Opal: Another gorgeous one that needs two coats for perfect opaqueness. I've also shown one coat over OPI Let Me Entertain You on my middle and pinky. I love it both layered and alone.

Violet Opal: This one I actually prefer layered. I think it looks really rich when it's layered. On my middle and pinky, I've shown one coat over Cirque Baptisia. I took a few extra pictures to show the glow.

Black Opal: Another one I prefer layered. The blue iridescent glitter just shines when it's over an opaque base. Two coats alone and one coat over a black creme on my middle and pinky nails.

If you love jelly polishes and you love flakies, you absolutely need this collection. I love Opal (for it's layering options), Moss Opal, and Rose Opal the most, if I had to choose.

Stay tuned as I have the Diamond collection to show you which is a collection of 7 one coater holographic polishes!
