How are you today??? Here I am again busting a polish out of the untried drawer!! How could this baby be part of my untrieds? I don’t even know! I love blue, I love holo, yet this baby has been sadly ignored for almost a year now. Sometimes I’m just a mean nailgirl I guess. BUT luckily early this year I made a resolution to always use an untried for my non-swatchy manis and so far it’s working because I’ve been getting real beauties out of the untried drawer.
Today I want to show you my first and only Darling Diva Polish, I picked up Royale (RuPaul Inspired Collection 2013) from a destash because, well I always go for blue and holo! I was pleasantly surprised with this polish, granted I knew it would be pretty but the formula was very nice even though it had been sitting there for a while, hadn’t gotten goopy or separated which is great. The two coats you see in the pics went on beautifully smooth and the top coat (Seche Vite) didn’t kill the holo at all. First pic is in sunlight and second is in lightbox.
Was it an untried treasure? yes it is quite the lovely polish. It however didn’t make me gasp or made me giddy, I think there’s a lot of gorgeous blue holos out there with great formulas and this just well joins the class but it is not the star student. I was very happy to see that this did not stain as many of it’s classmates do, so A+ for that! Sadly however I see that it is no longer available at Darling Diva so if you want to get your hands on it, it will have to be through a destash.
I do have to say that having seen the quality of this polish, I would not think twice about purchasing from this brand as soon as I’m able to. There are some real stunners in the shop!

You should be ashamed of yourself for not using this sooner! Haha! Beautiful color
Omg yes! I have some true beauties in my untrieds collecting dust. I need more hands!!
Ugh love this one! So sparkly and awesome.
Bummer it’s no longer available, but I can agree with you it’s beautiful just not unique. Still it definitely makes for some nice eye candy lol.
Yeah, there is so many gorgeous blue holos out there its hard to standout
Blue is my all time favourite colour, and this is perfectly beautiful x
Same here!! Although I think I have more purple polish than blue haha
I’ve seen this polish before, more than once, but it’s still beautiful.
I guess it must be popular? I think there are a lot of look alikes even within the brand. As a matter of fact I just saw one very similar on their page (a-ffirmative) that’s why I said its pretty but common. Still love it though
I adore blue holos! I feel like every drawer is an untried drawer for me. 😉
Yes hahaha I often feel the same way
Gorgeous blue holo! Yay for hidden treasures! 🙂
I am in love with this shade of blue!
Its so pretty!
this is the PERFECT smurf color.
Omg yes!!! Holo smurfs yassss
Gorgeous colour. Right up my street!
There’s a RuPaul collection?! Say it ain’t so! Time to go get my grubby paws on it…
According to google there was but sadly this is no longer available, there is something very similar on their page right now though
Such a pretty color! Next year, I am planning to bust through my untried polishes. I have wayyyy too many!!!
Definitely do it!!!
wow, I need to try Darling Diva for sure!! Also need to hit up more of my untrieds!
Yes and yes!!!
I love the sunlight shot! It’s so sparkly but not in your face holo, which I like better.
Thank you!!! I love POW holos!!!
Gorgeous polish! I’ve been craving blue holo’s lately too!
You know those are my fav
That shade of blue is so pretty!! I’m a huge blue and holo fan too, so I love this.
Yay!! Blue holos ftw!!
