Darling Diva Polish Prince Collection Part II - The Holos

Disclaimer:  This product was offered at a reduced price or at no charge to in exchange for published reviews.  All reviews are fair, honest and reflect my personal opinion. 

Wait? There was a Prince Collection Part I?  Well, officially no, but I did post reviews for 1999 and Darling Nikki a few weeks ago so I'm counting those as part one.  I received the rest of the collection in the mail yesterday so now I can show you the rest of these amazing polishes.  This post will feature the holo's - Purple Rain, When Doves Cry and Get Off.

Purple Rain

Purple rain is a rich dark grapey purple.  It feature tons of shimmer, holo sparkle and at certain angles a pearly blue appears out of no where.  The formula was flawless.  It took two coats to become opaque and dried very smoothly.

Photos show two coats of Purple Rain with one coat of CND Super Shiney top coat in natural sunlight.  In my opinion this polish has the perfect amount of holo.  There's enough that you can see the rainbow of colours when you're outside but purple is still the dominant colour.

Gett Off

Gett off is a lavender shimmer with a holo sparkle and a handful of iridescent purple glitter. The formula was great and it took two coats to become opaque.

Photos show two coats of Gett Off with one coat of CND Super Shiney top coat in natural sunlight. I think the holo in Gett Off is a bit more pronounced than that in Purple Rain but again I love how the lavender base still shines through even in direct sunlight.

When Doves Cry

When Doves Cry is a light grey shimmery polish packed with a silver glass fleck shimmer and a soft holo sparkle.  Like the other two holo's in this collection this formula on this polish was flawless.  It was a little more sheer though so it polish took me three coats to become opaque.

The top four photos show three coats of When Doves Cry with one coat of CND Super Shiney nail polish in natural light on a cloudy day.  Unfortunately, a rainy day meant that the holo wasn't going to show up outside so the bottom two photos were taken under halogen lighting so you can see the soft holo shimmer peaking through.

I think When Doves Cry is my favorite of these three.  I just love how delicate it looks and I love glass fleck shimmer.  All three of these polishes are currently available in the Darling Diva Polish Etsy shop.  I'll be back later this week with the three remaining polishes from this collection, the full coverage glitters.  Hopefully the rainy weather will clear up quickly so I can get some awesome swatch photos for you all.
