Darling Diva Polish Bubble Time Swatches & Review

Happy Monday everyone!  Today it's rainy and grey outside but that doesn't mean my nails have to be.  Darling Diva Polish Bubble Time is the exact opposite of that.  It is a light blue crelly based filled with a rainbow of circle glitter in various sizes.

The first thing I though of when I saw this polish is that white icing with the multicolored rainbow chips in it.  I definitely think this is a birthday party in polish form.  I used this polish alone but you could also use a single coat over a light base colour.

Pictures show three coats of Bubble Time with one coat of Gelous in (cloudy) natural sunlight.  Because of all the large glitters in this polish you will need a thicker top coat to smooth everything out, but that's not out of the ordinary.  You will also need to do a little dabbing to get the glitter all over the nail.  I just brushed the polish on normally and then dabbed some glitter on the spots that looked lacking.  If you want a bottle of your very own check out the Darling Diva Etsy shop at https://www.etsy.com/shop/DarlingDivaPolish.  What do you think of the bright, bubbly polish?

UPDATE: I was talking to Carrie of Darling Diva Polish and it turns out there were two formulas for Bubble Time.  The first had a white base with blue glitter that ended up bleeding.  That's why my base is now tinted a light blue.  (I'm actually happy about this little accident because personally I prefer a blue base).  This blue glitter was swapped out for a non-bleeding blue glitter and the second batch has has a white base that will stay white.  So if you buy Bubble Time you will get a polish with glitter that looks identical to the swatches but has a white base.
